    How to post pictures in the gallery and in the forums.

    First off you have to reduce the picture down to 900x600. I use Photoshop for this function; you can download the trial version. Once you’ve gotten your image reduced and save to a jpeg somewhere on your computer then it’s time to go to the website.





    • Click on “Gallery”
    • Click on “Upload Photo’s”
    • Click on the “Browse” and locate the image you have saved on your computer and select it
    • Enter the title of the photo section and a brief description of the photo in the “Photo Description”
    • Then select “Upload/Submit” and this should put that particular photo in your gallery.
    • To put a picture in the forums you open the picture then right click on it and select “Copy image location”
    • Then you go into the forums do your little write up and put your tags in.
    • [img]CtrlV[/img] the CtrlV keys hit at the same time is the same as the paste command. With the tags in place the image should appear in your post.



    Good luck and if you’ve got any problems feel free to contact me.

    Marc, another question. Is it possible to sort the order of pictures in your own gallery?

    I've uploaded a couple times with the succesful note showing up as well. I read in the tips section you have to resize the pics and I don't know how to do that so... Perhaps the message could say something about the pic sizes being too big if indeed that is the problem??

    I've uploaded a ton of times. Here's my method...

    1. Click on the "Gallery" the link is right under the HBC logo.

    2. Click on "My Photos" It's on the lefthand side, just above the pictures.

    3. Click on "Upload Pictures" It's on the righthand side just above the "Search" option.

    4. Click on "Browse" It's on the righthand side.

    5. Search through your files (usually in "My Picture" on your hard drive) and choose the one for uploading.

    6. Click on the picture and then click on "open" This will put it in the space just to the left of where the "Browse" button is.

    7. Add a "Title" for the picture and then move down the page to the "Upload/Submit" button - click on it.

    8. You'll get a mostly blank page with the message that the program is "Processing the Image list". Be patient and the program will automatically put you back to the "My Gallery" page with your uploaded photo right there.

    Just like this one below. Can you guess where it was taken?

    I just tried it again for the fourth time and now I got an error
    that says " PA060041.JPG (exceeds filesize limit)


    Does it only work for small mega pixel cameras I think this camera is a
    8 mega pixel kind.

    Do you resize them Bow Walker

    I'm guessing Saltspring Island for the pic you posted.
