    Uploading Photos Help

    The eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed the new buttons below the message area when you start a new topic or a reply.



    Note: The "Choose/Take Photo" button will now only appear for mobile devices and the Upload icon is different (a blue arrow)

    Button functions:

    "Choose Photos" to select one or more photos.
    "Choose/Take Photo" to select a single photo, with the option on iOS to switch to the camera.
    "Clear" will deselect any photos you have chosen (only enabled once photos selected for upload).
    "Upload" will start the upload process (enabled as above).

    Once the upload procedure completes, you will get a row of thumbnails under the message area.


    Click image to enlarge

    Simply click/tap an image to insert the BBCode for that image at the current location in the message area. Images will be slightly greyed out once clicked to indicate which ones you have used.

    The two small buttons on the header above the are:

    Refresh: at the moment this resets the greyed-out state of the images
    Empty: this clear the list, so click this once you have used all the photos you want

    Images loaded will persist across all new threads/replies until you click the "empty" icon, so you can add photos to multiple threads.

    This feature has currently only been developed and tested on Google Chrome on Windows, so please let me have feedback on other platforms and systems.

    On iOS the "Choose/Take Photo" button should give the option to switch to the camera instead of the photo roll.

    I hope this is useful and as above, please let me know feedback to improve the features or usability in general or on different devices/systems.

    Cheers,

    Martin

    Is there a link to the "Gallery" so users can find photos that they've uploaded previously?

    Just choose it and the site software resizes for you?

    Click profile then click avatar and insert location of file, then save
