How to Use the Gallery to Post Images

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I decided I would write up a post on how to use the Image Album to upload and post pictures in to posts very easily since it seems to be a big issue on here.  So, step by step follows.  In the images, the Yellow highlighted portion is showing you where to click or what to fill in.

Step 1:  Create a new Image Album.  You do this by clicking on the +Create drop down on the top right side of the banner of the website.

Step 2:  Click on the "Gallery Image" option from the +Create drop down list.

Step 3:  You now go to the screen to start create the image Album.  Select "Boating Pictures" from the "Select Category" drop down list:

Step 4: Create a new album.  You must name the Album.  You do NOT need to enter in a description if you do not want to.   Once done, click on the "Create New Album" button.

Step 5:  Upload pictures to your new album.  You can drag and drop images from your computer, or click on "Choose Files" and select images on your computer, or phone or tablet if you are using that, that you want to upload.

Step 7:  The site will upload your images and process them.  It may take a few minutes for it to complete.

Step 8:  Edit information about each image.  You can skip this step if you with by clicking "Finish Editing Images" in the lower left hand corner.

Step 9:  If you skip editing images, you get this popup warning.  It is ok to just click "OK" to continue.

Step 10:  Your images are now uploaded to your new Album!  You can always add more images by click the "Add Images" button!

Step 11:  You can access your albums from your profile by clicking on the "Albums" tab.

Step 12:  When you are writing or responding to a post, you can now add images from your albums.  On the lower right of the posting window, click on the "Insert other media" drop down and select "Insert existing attachment"

Step 13:  You can now select one or more pictures you have in your albums to be included in the post.  Just click on an image the the checkmark turns green.  Select all you want to add.  the click "Insert # Selected" in the lower left.

Your images you will appear in your post or reply.  That is it.  All images used in this post were done using this method.

Sometime ago, I tried to load pictures into my gallery in a different way than above. My IPhone pics are generally 1.2mb. When I tried to load the pic, I kept getting a size limit warning and my iPhone pics wouldn't load.  Surprisingly, your instructions above [so easy] worked.

Thanks for this!!! I may not have had a sufficient amount of coffee this morning but is there an option to delete images once there? I'd like to delete my obnoxiously large signature photo and replace with a smaller one

Guess it works. Kind of an old pic, surprised it was still on here since the reboot a couple of years ago. Kind of small, though.

There is.  It is kind of hard to find.

Go to your Album the image is in, click on the image.

Scroll way down, there is a button called "Manage Image" that is a drop down list with one choice:  Edit Details.

Click on "Edit Details" and scroll down again.  On the far right near the bottom of the page is a "Delete" link in red text.  Kind of small, but there :)

Found the delete link and it takes it from the left of that line but it's like it just removes it from that page but when you go to the album, I still see my big and small picture.
