Photo Galleries-Help!!

Need someone to give me a simple (pardon my lack of computer savy) explaination of how to post photos. Previous posts don't seem specific enough for the ignorant among us.
Thanks for any help you can give.

There's only two things that will trip you up, Larry - first, you have to know your way around your computer so you can find your pictures, and second, you need to have saved them in a format that is compatible with the site and makes for small enough pictures for everybody's browser to handle.

If you look at the bottom of everybody's post, you'll see a button marked "Photos" - just click on that button, and you'll be take to the photos website.

Then you just click the "Upload Photos" (or some similarly labelled button) and navigate to the folder where your pictures live.

If you'd like to PM me I'd be glad to talk you through it for more assistance.

Good luck - we're all hungry for Airstream pix!!

Lightbulb suggestion


When you first setup your pictures, be sure that you stay away from .bmp files ext. as these tend to be rather large. For example, compared to .jpg files, the .bmp can be as much as 10x larger.(just for an example: .bmp=457kb, the .jpg=34kb) This forum is very tight on the actual size of each picture and, for the total size of all the pictures that you can upload.
What I do, if I may suggest this, is name a folder SAVE101 and, then direct all my pictures that I upload to the puter there. That way, I alway know just where to go for my pictures. You might even setup a a file system for your puter using, SAVE101,SAVE102, etc all the way up to SAVE120..Whatever you feel comfortable with.
I'd suggest that, if you don't have a photo management program, to take a look at one called ACDSee...Here's the link to the website.
They usually have a free download or trial period for 30 days..Try it, you'll like me on this..
Then...You'll need an input device for your puter, either a scanner, digital camera or, grab the picture off the website somewhere..Maybe even as an email attachment..As you can see, your source for the picture can come from many different directions.
Once you get the picture into a known location on your puter, the rest really become quite simple.
If you click on the photo album, you'll be able to decide where you want to store your pictures. Either in member's photo galleries or, under the airstream trailer, airstream motorhome..It depends on you. The first thing you need to do, once you select which section you want to store your pictures , is to login. Then go to ablum admin and, hit add album, name your picture album, giving a brief description. At this time, you can make it private or public..your call. Then, hit 'add album' once more. From here on out..just go to upload photos and, load them in each at a time.
Be sure let everyone know when your done..Good luck~!~
btw, the use of a program like ACDSee, makes it easier to see what pictures are in your folder and, to move them around (also for uploading purposes)..You'll be real surprised at what all you can do..once you get into it.

One more thing...

You may need to reduce the file size of you pictures to stay within the limitations of After you resize the picture,often times it is still to large of a file size for the site. The program I use for this is called "JPG Optimizer" and it is available for download HERE
