The registry forum includes an integrated image hosting service and photo gallery that can be used to host images for display here and on other web sites. Every registered user has a personal gallery that you can use to upload photos. Here's how to upload images:

Start by entering the gallery:



Click on the "My Gallery" link:



Click on the next "My Gallery" link to enter your user gallery:



You're now looking at your gallery. Look for the buttons to uoload pictures at the bottom of the page:



Once you've added images you can use various linking codes to use the images on web site, in forums, etc. Here's what the codes look like:



Unfortunately, I can't tell you exactly which code will be needed where. That's a function of wherever you're trying to use the image. On this web site you'll want to use the "BB Code" - that's what I used to build this topic.

Hmm.  I can't seem to get the photo to load...it seems like it will, then nothing is there.

Kim, your picture went into an approval queue. I just approved it and changed the settings so that approval isn't needed any more.

Scott, following these instructions I was able to create a photo gallery. Thanks. One question. When I ask the gallery to arrange my photos by date in ascending order it does so. Until I close the gallery. When I re-open the gallery the pictures are in descending order. Personally I think that pictures showing various steps in a restoration should be in the order the pictures were taken. Not the end of the world by any means but maybe a minor adjustment to your gallery settings? Or am I making a mistake?  Thanks.   Dave R.

You can change the default sort order for your own gallery, and you control the order in which you upload the images. The "Edit" link to change your settings is shown here:

Thanks one more time Scott. That works just dandy. Now if I can remember that step for future reference.   Dave R.

Folks, I had to re-run the import software to fix a problem with missing file sizes on imported images. Unfortunately, that means that any pictures added since the new gallery went live have been lost. Please add them again if you wish to create a gallery. Sorry for the inconvenience.
