How to upload a photo(s)

(You are welcome to highlight and print this information.)

1.  Be sure you are logged in on the home page.  In the links section on the left side under MEMBER FUNCTIONS (highlighted in white) click on the link:  Edit/Upload Photos.

2.  The Photo page will appear and you will see a gray box titled "Upload New Photo".  Click on this box and you will be at the Add Photo page.

3.  The Add Photo page gives basic instructions for uploadiing your photos.  There are three (3) places on this page to make entries:

  • Sort:  The sort number controls the order in which photos display on your page.  By default, your pictures will appear in the order you entered them so this is not important for your first picture but, later, if you want picture #5 to appear as #1, you will have to change the sort numbers on your pictures.  If you delete a picture, the sort numbers for the remaining pictures does not change (e.g., if you delete picture #2 out of 4 pictures, you will show pictures #1, 3, and 4).
  • Caption: caption is the description you write for your pictures. 
  • Browse:  this is the most important one, for this is how you find the picture on your computer and get it to appear on your page.

5.  Your first picture will automatically be Sort number 1.

6.  Now click the Browse button.  A list of folders on your computer will appear.  Locate the folder that holds your picture(s).  For most classmates, this will be the Pictures or My Pictures folder located in the My Documents folder.  When you have clicked through to your picture file, click the view button at the top to show icons as pictures.  This makes it easier to find the specific picture you want to upload.

7.  Select the picture you want to upload by clicking on it once, then click Open at the bottom of the box.

8.  Now you will be taken back to the Add Photo page and in the Upload Photo box you will see the path to your picture.

9.  Enter the Caption for your picture in the box.

10.  Click the Save Changes button.

Now go to your Profile page and look for your picture and caption.

Shortcut for multiple pictures:  If you are uploadiing several pictures that are in different folders, you can copy them to your desktop, then delete them later.  Make sure you copy, not move, your pictures so you won't delete the original!
