FAQ - Images and Image Galleries

What is an image gallery and how do I view it?

An image gallery is a collection of images that you or some other community member have uploaded. Each community member who has permission to upload images has an image gallery. You can view your own image gallery as well as the image galleries of other community members. When you look at another user's gallery, you see the approved images that the user has chosen to share This is called his or her Public Images.

Note: Your image gallery is created automatically after you have logged into the Community several times, over a few days. Prior to that time, you will be unable to upload images.

How do I insert an image in a post?

You can insert images from your computer (this uploads the image to your gallery), from your image gallery (if the image is not awaiting approval), or from another location on the internet.

  • Start a new post, edit an existing one, or create or edit a reply
  • Click "Photo" in the editor tool bar (it looks like a camera)
  • You can also use the "File Attachment" dialog. The only attachments accepted are image files
  • Choose one of the image source options and follow the on-screen instructions

My friends can't see the images I've uploaded. Where are they?

For your protection, your community requires a moderator to approve some uploaded images before they can be displayed. Although you can see your uploaded images that are awaiting approval or flagged for review, other community members who view your images can only see the ones that have been approved.

What is a private image?

A private image is one that only you can see. Each time you upload an image, you can decide whether you want that image to appear in your image gallery. If you choose no, the image is private. Remember, a moderator must approve some uploaded images before your can use them in a post or display them in your gallery.

To change the privacy setting for an image:

  • In your gallery page, click the check box below the image you want to change
  • Click Image Options > Make All Checked Images Public or Private
