How to post your pictures to the Grub 'n' Gear Gallery.

Pictures must be in keeping with the theme and spirit of the Grub 'n' Gear community. Thank you.

You can print this 'How to...' by clicking on the printer icon in the top right hand corner or the Forum header.

Have the pictures that you want to upload to the Grub 'n' Gear Gallery on your computer. Make sure you know where they are and that you will be able to navigate to them easily.

To upload your pictures you need to log in.

If you have not registered then you will have to register to be able to log in. Please remember your user name and password. You will find the login and register buttons on the top right corner of the Forum header.

Once you have logged in:

Select 'Add Album' from the menu on the left hand side of the Gallery.

Fill in the fields.
You will then be given a bunch of options that you may want to play with later, but for now we will keep everything set to default.

From the menu on the left hand side of the Gallery select 'Add Items'.

To upload your picture click on 'Browse' which is on the end of the field marked 'File'.
A directory window will pop up and from there you navigate to the picture that you want to upload.

Caption your picture.
In the field that says 'Caption' write a blurb about the picture so we know what we are looking at.

Add another picture.

You will notice another set of identical fields below those fields so you can select the next picture you want to upload.

Add more fields.
Under that set of fields are the words, 'More Upload Boxes...'. Click on the words to add another set of fields for more pictures. Repeat until you have selected the pictures you want to upload. Don't select too many at a time as pictures tend to be large files and it will take an ice age to upload them all. You can add more pictures, rearrange your album and edit later.

Now that your album is established...
To add more pictures go to your album. There will be a little drop down menu under the 'thumbnail' or cover picture when you are logged in. From there:
Select 'Edit Album'.

Select 'Add Items' in the left hand menu.
And continue navigating to your pictures and captioning them.

Once you have selected and captioned your pictures click 'Add Items' at the bottom of the page.
Uploading the pictures can be time consuming, so be patient.


Log in.

Create and populate an album:
Add Album → Add Items → Browse to a picture and click it → Caption the picture → At the bottom of the page click 'Add Items' to upload the selected pictures.

To add pictures to an established album:
Select 'Edit Album' from the drop down menu under your 'thumbnail' or cover photo → Add Items → Browse to your pictures → Caption the pictures → At the bottom of the page click 'Add Items' to upload the selected pictures.

As you explore the Gallery you will discover various features and configurations for your albums. Have fun! We look forward to sharing your adventures.
