Why Resize? Sometimes uploading large images may cause server "timeouts" and "error messages". This means the image(s) you are trying to load is too big. You may have to start from scratch on your review after getting an error message. Because of this, we advise entering and saving your review first, then uploading your images separately. Or simply have them resized!

Adding Pictures

The Browse button lets you go into your computer files and find an image. Select a picture and click Open. If you have another image, click Add another and repeat the process. When you have uploaded all your pics, just click Save.

NOTE: If you get an error message, try uploading and saving one image at a time. Or resize (see below).

Resizing

If you know how to resize pictures: make them 350px in width. You can add up to 10 images. Resizing helps the upload process go quicker and makes it faster for the website visitors too. Paint or Word Publisher are common software for resizing. Want a free online picture resizing tool? Click here for full instructions on resizing pictures.

No resizing

If you do not know how to resize, its OK, but you may have to add/upload images one at a time (click Save after each image). It also may take longer to show up for our website visitors.

Title

This is the title or caption for your photo.
