How to post photos on a sub-FORUM

You must be a "Member" of this FORUM to allow you to
reply or post new topics and upload your photos.
You must first register and subscribe (if desired)
and then request membership in the pop-up which should
appear if you attempt to post.

If you have problems, please contact: < >

The procedure for posting photos provides two alternatives--
either post a photo from your computer or device or,
if your photo is published on the Internet, you may
post the address (URL) of your photo. In the latter case,
be sure that the photo is JPG format.

The address must end in ".jpg" or it will not display.

Be sure to "resize" the image, as the original may be
larger than the size of the screen.

Let the image "float," which lets you decide where
you might wish to place it if you are including text or captions.

Post in the appropriate sub-forum.

The menu for posting photos is fairly straightforward:

First, select the appropriate sub-FORUM in which to
post your photo (e.g., a specific nest, a sighting away
from a known nest, or others as listed).

If you wish to have photos appear in your message, use the
drop-down menu at the top of the "New Topic" or "Reply" window.
If you simply paste the link into the text, clicking on the link will
direct the user to a single photo or separate web page.

Select: "New Topic" or "Reply" --> "Insert Image" --> choose either to upload
from your computer or copy the image's address from the internet

If you do choose the latter option, the display photo on many
sites such as Facebook or Flicker etc may not be in JPG format,
so you may need to click on it to view it in a separate window
which may be JPG or provide options such as "save image URL"
or format or size. Just be sure that the URL ends in ".jpg"

Generally, the "Large" size option works fine, as it resizes the
image to fit the screen. Also let the image "float" inside any text
you may wish to include. It will justify to the left side of the display
and then the code for the image may be positioned anywhere
in your message.

IF you have multiple photos it is best to array them in a vertical
stack rather than side by side, as they will otherwise spread across
the screen horizontally and may not be as friendly when viewed
on a phone screen,

If you watermark your photos, please try to place the mark
so that it does not detract from the subject of your photo.
