How To Post A Photo


Here at, we're interested in seeing your travel photos! 

Here's how to create a photo album, and upload images to your photo album.

1) On the front page, under Gallery links, click Add Album.

2) You'll get a page called Submit Album.

3) Add the title of your album, i.e., Jessie's Photos.

4) Leave the parent album alone (acidfree albums).

5) Decide if you want others to post to your album.  This is probably not a good idea unless you are uploading photos as a group (i.e., Summer Abroad 2008, London). - Making great sabbaticals happen!
