Do you want to upload photos to Green Wave Forum but don't know how? Here is a complete tutorial on how to submit that perfect pic.

The Quick Read

Don't need details? Here is the short form.
1) "Register" on top menu
2) "Login" on top menu
3) "Photos" on left side menu
4) Resize pic to 800x800 max
5) Upload Photo
6) Rinse and repeat
1. Register

If you haven't done so already, you need to register before posting on Green Wave Forum. The Register button is located near the top of the page, just below the kayaker banner. Click on Register. You will need to create a user name and enter a password. The user name has to be unique to this system so make something up. Generally, it is a bad idea to use your real name as your user name as everyone will see it.

After you enter a user name and password, scroll down and type your Real Name, Email Address, City and State. There are a few other fields you can optionally enter as well. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Submit. A “policy” screen will show. Enter the letter “A” to “F” based on the sentence shown. Click Submit. Congrats! You are now registered on Green Wave Forum.

2. Login

Located on the top of the page (near the Register button) is Login. Click on this button. The system will ask for your user name and password. Enter them and click Submit. If all goes well, you'll be logged in. If you forgot your user name or password, click on the “Forgot your user name or password?” link.

3. Photo Gallery

To upload photos you must access the photo gallery. Click on the “Photos” button on the left side menu. You will see a page with the latest photos. Near the top of the page is a line that starts with “Options:”. At the end is “Upload Photos”. Click on the Upload Photos link.

Green Wave Forum does not allow photos larger than 800 pixels wide by 800 pixels tall. If your photos are larger than that, the need to be resized prior to uploading. There are several good (and free) programs available to let you resize photos. One source is www.download.com. Go to the website and enter “image editing” in the search box. A list of programs will display. A favorite called “Paint.net 3.3” is free, easy-to-use and popular.

Photos must be uploaded individually. Give each photo a title and photo date. Please note that your photos will be automatically grouped by photo date so if you have several photos from the same trip or location, make sure they have the same date. You can optionally add keywords and a description. At the file name field, click the Browse button. This lets you search your PC for your photo. Once you have located the photo on your PC, click Upload.

The upload process will now start. It usually takes a few seconds so be patient. Uploading multiple photos for the same location / date are made easier as you can enter a new title, find the file and click Upload.


That's it!

You have now uploaded photos to Green Wave Forum. If you have problems, please email me. Thanks for contributing and helping us become Florida's best paddling website!
