Question New here. How do I post pictures?

Hello. I'm new to this forum as a new owner of a 9 week old chocolate lab puppy. I'd love to share pictures on my profile but I'm not quite sure how to do it. I'm used to uploading pictures from files on my computer by using the "browse" button, but it looks like I need to upload albums? What are albums and how do I upload them? Sorry, I'm not very computer savvy.

Hello and welcome!

To set a profile pic you have to upload the photos first to an image hosting site such as photobucket/flickr. From there you can get the image's URL and paste it into the box. You can also share pictures by creating a new thread and adding them as an attachment which will allow you to upload pictures from your computer.

You can create albums to upload the photos you'd like to share. To do this go to User Cp -> Pictures & Albums -> Add Album -> Upload pictures. You can upload files from your computer into an album and get the image url from there as well.

Hope this helps! Would love to see pics of your puppy

Actually, you don't need to have a photo sharing account to post pics!

To set an avatar like

<---- THIS

Go to User CP (far left, top of home screen). Then under Settings and Options, click "Edit Avatar" and van upload a pic by either doing the above and adding a URL, or upload one from your comp.

You can also upload a profile pic from User CP (will show on your profile).


Next, you're going to want to add a dog to your profile. Go to the "Dogs" tab (right beside user cp) and click Add a dog. There will be an option to add photos.

Lastly, to create an album of your puppy on your profile, go to the right hand top gourmet of the home page and click on your username at the top. Once there, you should be able to create an album pm the right hand side of the page under "albums" tab.

To put pics in a post, I just click on the paper clip and upload then from there.

Can't wait to see pics!

Thanks for the help! I finally got my profile, albums and avatar created. Introducing Ryker...my (already spoiled) 9 week old chocolate baby. He's sweet as pie with just a hint of mischief thrown in for good measure. :-)
