Uploading photos is easy! Simply click on 'upload' on the secondary navigation bar, and it will show you how much space you have left and allow you to browse your PC for images. The program will also allow you to title your image and enter a short description. You'll also be prompted to choose which folder to use.
If you want to upload to a public folder, make sure your image is appropriate for the folder you've chosen. If you want to upload to your own folder, and you don't yet have your folder, upload to "member's categories" to automatically create one. You can also create sub-categories (See FAQ entry "creating categories" for details on creating sub-categories.) beneath your private folder to upload to.
