Hi John,

If you go into your profile tab (at the top of the screen for those who haven't found it yet) and then down the left hand column you shouldnsee 'Add Album'. There is a facility there to add photo albums. It won't appear when you view other peoples profiles unless they have added some.

Let me know if you have any problems using this function... and I'll check www.a2oc.net out later today when I get chance :)

Edit: I have looked into the photo album facility and added my own album to double check it. I f anyone needs any info on how to use the photo albums just let me know :)

John, when you go on your profile look down the left hand side, under were your avatar is there's a tab to add an album. I've not tried to add one myself yet but I will soon.

Chris.

Hi John, when you go to 'upload pictures' you get a pop up box where you can select images or upload files from your computer. In that box in the top right corner there is a little question mark. If you click it you get the info I've pasted above.

I will say, though, that two of my images are 101kb (jpg)... so there does seem to be a bit of slack in terms of the file size in my album at least.

I'm going to move this info into a seperate thread, John, as I think a few people are starting to put images of themselves in their profile and also looking at albums. They'll be able to find this info easier that way I think.

Best Regards,

Robyn

Thanks Robyn or perhaps put a link there so people can use thier photobucket/flckr accounts - that way, it wont clog up your server space

No problem, John... and the links are most definitely easier if people already have their photos online somewhere with the URL.

Take care, Robyn

You'll be able to use all of those URL's to add your pics directly into threads and posts using the 'insert image' tool :)
