Re: Uploading photos ?

Hi Andrew and Welcome to the site!


Uploading photos is relatively simple but the main reason it fails is the size of the images.  They must be below 0.5MB.  We had a major issue with 4MB+ images being uploaded to our old site and it just eats up so much storage space.  So just resize your images to below that.  In all honesty you don`t need anything bigger than 1000pixels for viewing on screen which reduced any image to less than 100kb.


There is a link here to a guide to inserting images into posts:

If you want to upload to a gallery then the process is pretty much the same.  Just click upload within the gallery and you can drag and drop.  


Unfortunately the gallery and images uploaded into forum posts don`t quite mesh at the moment (something they`re working on apparently), so if you upload to the gallery you wont see them in the forum when you click the camera icon and choose gallery (as you would expect) so you have to right click on your image in the gallery and use the URL to link in the forum.  Bit of a faff but in all honesty only takes a second.


Looking forward to seeing some of your work!
