Summary: How to upload in-line photos to your trip reports.

Instructions:
This procedure is just a special version of the general Upload Photo - to any type of Article. What we are talking about here are in-line photos, not stand alone "Feature Photos". These instructions assume you have already inserted the trip report itself.

You can upload large photos directly from your camera and they will be resized. Small photos will not be automatically resized. See How Photo Resizing Works.

Below are step by step instructions for in-line photos:

STEP BY STEP

  1. Go to Trip Report
     Find the trip report into which you are going to load the photos. The author's menu has a list of all your Trip reports.

  2. Click "Upload Photo"
     At the top of the trip report page, you see a small brown link called "Upload Photo". Click it. This brings up a screen called "Screen #1 - Upload and Delete Images".

  3. Browse to photo
     Click on the "Upload Image" link on Screen #1 and click "Browse" to find the file on your hard disk. Select the filename, and click the "Open" button.

  4. Upload the photo
     Push the "Upload File" button. This will upload the file to our server. You will then be back at screen #1 again, and you will see the name of the file you uploaded in yellow.

  5. Update Trip Report
     From screen #1, click the link labelled "Update Your Trip Report". This displays your trip report, but you still have to edit it.

  6. Update your trip report
     (adjust the position and caption of your photo)
     When you bring up the edit form for your trip report, you now see a link to your photo at the start of your description field. It looks like below: [photo]W01.jpg[caption]describe photo here[/photo]

  7. Move the link to the correct place in your story, and update the caption. Then save your report.
