To upload pictures for the Show and Tell segment of our meetings:

  1. In the Member's Menu, click on Add Content.
  2. Depending on your user role and the updates made to the web site, there may be a selection for adding more than one type of content.  If there is more than one available choice, Click on Show and Tell Pictures. 
  3. The Show and Tell Pictures input form should be open.
  4. Enter a brief description of your item to show in the Title field.
  5. Enter your name in the Submitted By field
  6. If desired, enter any additional information about your item in the details area
  7. Click on the Choose File link in the picture field
  8. Using your operating system file navigator/explorer, navigate to the correct folder and select the picture you wish to upload.  NOTE:  the only allowed file types are: png gif jpg jpeg.  Maximum file size is 256MB.
  9.  When the picture is selected, a thumbnail image should be displayed in the picture area.  NOTE:  depending on the image properties, it may upload rotated 90and the thumbnail will show it is rotated.  To prevent your picture from being incorrectly displayed, it is recommended to edit the source picture file to allow it to display upright.  The most common solution is probably to edit the image to be a square instead of a rectangle.  The windows photo editor crop and edit function will perform this action.
  10. If desired, enter alternative information that will appear in the browser when you hover the mouse over the uploaded image
