How to upload photos and add information

As most earlier photos will not be digital you'll have to scan them

You can only upload .jpeg or .png or .gif

The gallery software will resize your photo to three sizes
1. thumbnail   2. normal view (800x600px)   3. HD (a max of 2000X2000px)
The absolute maximum size that can be uploaded is 10mb but there's little point as the max height & width is set to 2000px
Ideally a photo of less than 2mb would be good
Your probably going to have to crop and/or resize your photo, which isn't a great problem, possibly you already know how to do this.
If you dont know how then try downloading and installing this 'Photo Editor' - easy to use and even incorporates a tutorial video
(hint - try the two icons far right)
(a Landscape photo fits the gallery better so if possible crop to give Landscape)
To resize (resample) set the longest edge to 2000px - assuming your photo is larger than this.

If your not sure which album to upload to then upload to the 'Community' album, we'll sort them later

Once uploaded you can add Name, Author, Description, tags etc. To do this enter the album you uploaded to and click the thumbnail of your photo, when the photo page appears click the crossed tools icon thats at top left, then enter the Description and info - dont forget to 'save'
(the 'enter info' page is 'work in progress' and looks a bit of a mess but still works)
You can 'revisit' your own photos to add or change information
(Do ignore the 'Who can see this photo' field and the two sections 'Linked albums' and 'Representation of albums')

The images online may be of a smaller size than the originals held by the up loader, if you would like the original contact the up loader
