First of all, Offsite Photos and links to offsite photos are not allowed on the Forestry Forum. If you want to share your photo, it MUST be placed in the Forestry Forum gallery and then placed in a post. Directing people to your gallery is also not allowed. The gallery's only purpose is to archive photos used in posts. Photos not used in posts are not to be uploaded. Deleting photos used in posts id not allowed and considered destruction of forum property

We've created some simplistic videos that should explain the processes of setting up a gallery, posting a photo, and creating a link to your gallery in your profile and posts. Please excuse my spelling in the Tutorials. :-\


1. Preparing your Gallery.

Before you can upload a photo and post it, you must create at least one album in your gallery so you have a place to put the photos. You can create one, or as many as you like. Some people like to stick all their photos in one album, some like to be neat. I happen to be not so neat.  The following video will show you how to do this first step. It explains step by step, then it shows a video example of the actual process.



2. Uploading a photo and placing it in your post.
An explanation, then example. If the descriptions go too fast, simply click on the video to stop it.




3. Adding a link to your gallery to your profile and posts.
An explanation, then example

Thank you for the help. The problem I am having is figuring out windows 8. I have not yet educated myself on how to save a picture other than having it as a tile. I will figure this thing out.

I am having some trouble figuring out windows 8 also.
If you're downloading the pictures from your camera.
Open the camera card up after you have it plugged into usb.
Click on the picture and drag it into the picture file icon on the left.
It is under the Library folder.
You can open that on the bottom left when you have your desktop screen up.

I think you need to select an album to download your picture into.
I think you all ready did the above,I think "open" where  ever you put your pictures on your computer.

Good job, Just remember, The gallery is not for uploading photos too, and saying "go look in my gallery". Only photos that are put into a post go in the gallery. You upload the photo, link it to your post, then never ever delete it or it will screw the post up.

Hey Jeff
The new photo up load system works great even for computer cripple like me.

I haven't watched the videos but your written instructions are very well done and I was able to get it figured out with just a bit of help from my son. Great work and thanks.

FYI. You may need to install a larger storage system as I have about 2000 and rising saw mill photos and about 60,000 other photos that I am sure every body would enjoy.  ;D
If you ain't livin on the edge you are takin up way to much room. Of course at my age if I get too close to that edge any more theres a good chance I may fall off.

It's hardly new. It's over a year old not.
FYI
I'll say it again, as I've said elsewhere multiple times. The gallery is not for personal storage of photos. The only photos that should be in a member's gallery, are ones that appear in a post. The Gallery is the spot to hold the photo so it can be in the post, or so that it can be used in any subsequent posts if needed. That is the only reason for existence, other than being the means to make sure the Forum's Topic integrity remains for perpetuity.

Did you create an album yet? Did you watch the video tutorials at the beginning of this topic?  You have to create an album in order to upload, and then you need to select that album when you do upload.
