Default How to Upload Photos to the Gallery.

To upload photos to the gallery you must first be in the gallery web page. If you are not, click on the gallery link in the blue bar above to take you there.


Step 1:
Click on "Upload Photos" link.




Step 2:

Click on one if the three "Browse" buttons to locate your photo on your computer.



You will have a menu that looks similar to this where you can navigate to your photo. It is similar to using file manager or "my computer." Find the file and click "open" to select the photo for uploading.


Important note: To better serve the members with slow modems and shorten wait times - and to ensure disk space on the server is managed efficiently - be sure the image you are uploading satisfies the size limits for this web site. We recommend that your image be no longer than 800 pixels on its longest side (i.e., vertical or horizontal), and the file memory size is not larger than 250 to 300 KB. For now, these guidelines are somewhat discretionary. For example, uploading a stitched panorama will likely need to be much longer than 800 pixels for best viewing.


Step 3:

After you have selected your file from your hard drive, you can then add a title and description, and set your options for ratings, comments, etc. Once you are satisfied with your choices, click "upload/submit" button.




Step 4:

If the server accepts your image successfully, a new menu will appear where you can make your final edits to the image. Click "process" to complete the upload.



That should do it. If you have any problems or need help, send one of the moderators a Private Message.
