  8. Drag and drop your images to "Add Images".  Or click the big icon to browse to the folder of images.
  9. Give your image a detailed, appropriate Title under "Caption".
  10. A description of your image is appreciated too.  The goal is to share your knowledge and skills with others.  Any info you can provide on how you took the photo will be greatly appreciated by other photographers.  Oh, and any location (or other) info to would be cool too.  Camera EXIF data will auto-populate if the information is in the file.  If not, please manually provide the info.

  14. Repeat for each image

If needed, you can edit an existing album by changing its name and/or adding or removing images as needed. To do so, navigate to your profile and click on the "Album" tab.  Click on the album name and then choose "Manage album" to edit.

***Before uploading your images make sure you size them properly.  Images are restricted to 1.5 MB in size or smaller. Anything larger will not upload and will give you an error.  Resize images to 1800 pixels wide or tall @ 72DPI and save for the web.  This size will generate images that are 1.5MB or smaller for most images.  If not, resize accordingly.
