I would enlighten you ... but from past experience all I seem to create is a multitude of confusion, I'm sure Horus will be able to tell you in a far less roundabout way than I ever could! :roll:

The problem that most people have is not the actual uploading of a picture, this is quite easy to do, but of getting the size to conform to the following rules:

It must not exceed 800 x 800 pixels and it must not exceed 256kb in size and it must be JPG or a GIF file.

There is a facility for automatically resizing your pictures on the 'Extra's Menu' on the left size of this screen. However when I try to use it, it never seems to work properly for me.

There is a really fool proof method but it involves you having the 'free to download' Picasa program on your PC. It is perfectly safe and it is completely free to use. It is an excellent program for organising your photographs. It will do everything automatically after you click the download button, once installed it will search out and organise your pictures into folders. When you click on one of your picture files it will automatically open it in the Picasa editing window, in this window you can easily 'tweak' your pictures to get the best from them, it is also the best way to resize them.

I would suggest that if you can, you should download this onto your PC, I will then post another instruction as to how it can be used to upload your photographs to the forum.

Click HERE to download the program.

And once you have resized your photo, just go up to your album at the top of the page here and follow the instructions Kiya posted from Stan. Let us know if you still have problems. :D

Since the new forum format, Stan's instructions only appear as a ?, and the video does not appear, there's just [flash width=600 height=326 loop=true]http://www.luxor4u.com/forum/demos/uplo ... -album.swf[/flash], Keefy. Can this be fixed, please. Could there be a sticky or put it in the FAQ and Gallery sections for basic info re loading pictures, videos etc, so people don't keep asking, like you added Hobbies and Pastimes, maybe? That is, somewhere bleedingly obvious easy to find, without having to go all round the houses, especially for newbies not used to the forum setup (and pathetic non-techxperts, such as I). :sp:
