I don't know how to upload photos into the gallery.

How do I do this?


Thanks

Edit: never mind I realized I needed to log into the gallery to be able to upload

Apologies to mendelman, but I'm going to hijack this thread since it's on the same topic.

I know it would seem that uploading pictures is all very straightforward, but I can't seem to do it. Is there a FAQ or instructions somewhere? I looked and could not find one (admittedly, I looked quickly, so might have missed it)

I'm a bit confused....the gallery upload screen says my limit is 100,000 kb, but when I try to post a 479 kb picture, I get a message saying that the limit is 250 kb. ??? I don't have any photo processing software on my home computer, so I can't reduce the file size (seriously, though, I don't think I'd know how to anyway).

Does anyone have any (easy to follow) ideas?

Reducing the file size is usually the key to getting it to work. I would also recommend the .jpg format (I think Cyburbia only takes .jpg and .gif images). If your file is not a .jpg, then converting it to one will often reduce the size. There are some shareware programs that do simple digital photo editing, although I don't personally use them. Check out CNET to see what they offer.
