Picture upload

When I go to my picture albums, I am not presented with a link to "Upload Pictures". This is after I'm logged in.

Re: Picture upload

If you need a place to host images of your Camaro, every CamaroZ28.Com account has a photo gallery (and a blog, too!) It is pretty easy to use.
Click on User CP in the nav bar above and then click on User Control Panel in the pop-up window. This will being you to your User CP main page
Click Pictures & Albums in the left nav of your User CP
Click Add Album and on the next screen, add the details you want
Once you have an album created, go into it and click Upload Pictures
That's it! Once you have an image uploaded, there will be easy posting code below it when you view it.

If you want bigger pictures and more space for them, plus a bunch of other cool features, please consider upgrading your account to a Premium Membership.



How to post images that are hosted elsewhere can be found in the FAQ:

Re: Picture upload

When you open the specific album, the "upload picture" button is lower left.

Re: Picture upload

Thanks, I had tried all that. When I go to an album I don't see a link for Upload Pictures. I just checked again and scrolled through the whole page. I don't think I'm blind and I could be missing it but I don't see Upload Pictures anywhere on the page.

On the initial page where one selects the album there is an Add Album link but I don't see an Upload Picture link on any page.

Re: Picture upload

I am having the same issue with my albums. The "upload pictures" button is nowhere to be found. Is there a problem with the picture albums or am I missing something? I followed the steps to upload as outlined in the post on two different laptops with the same result

Re: Picture upload

I think this issue may be a little different. The problem initially was with an account that dropped out of Premium Member, back to Registered Member. I looked at your account and that doesn't seem to be the issue here.

If you are not seeing the link to add pictures to your album, then I believe you do not have permission to do so.

Re: Picture upload

How do I gain permission? I was able to upload the other pictures. Also, I tried to access the premium membership but it wouldn't allow me access to that either

Re: Picture upload

Is it possible the max upload capacity for the account has been reached?

Im not sure what the capacity is but i only have a few pictures uploaded. I can try deleting them and go from there. If that is the case, does that mean my photos are too large of a format?

Re: Picture upload

I deleted all but three pictures and now I have the ability to upload new pictures. In the future I will have to pay attention to the size of the image and try to keep it minimized. I am not very computer savvy in regard to file sizes I guess I just had too much data consumed by the file size??

Re: Picture upload

Photos from some cameras can be 2 to 4 megabites. That will eat up storage fast. Compressed photos can be less that 100 KB.

I don't know the inner workings of the site.... Chris and Jason know, but aren't as active as they used to be. The "Admin" hasn't been on the site for months. I find I get the best results to solving problems like this by posting them on the Admin/Moderators private forum, and directing the post to the attention of the site owner - Internet Brands.

I would not bother with "premium membership", which used to get you a larger photo storage capacity. I don't know if the system even works any more, or who gets the money.

Re: Picture upload

Thank you for your help Fred. I spoke to my wife, who is much better than I am with these things, and she is going to Reformat the pictures to reduce the file size so I can post some updated things. Good info on the premium membership also, I was thinking that I had to sign up to get the pictures to upload.
