@ndwoods There are additional tutorials in the Photography forum, but here are the basics.

Untitled-1.jpg
Click Upload attachment tab

Untitled-2.jpg
Choose File, add File comment, then click Add the file button.


Then hit Submit like you would any other post. Max file size is 2MB. Bigger than that and you either have to first reduce the file size before uploading(here's a free utility) or link to your photo hosted elsewhere like on Facebook, Picasa, Flickr, etc.

Is this kind of what you have in mind?

Taken at one of my camps along the South Fork of the Flathead River in the Bob Marshall Wilderness in Montana. Does the photo have to be in the Sierra? Just curious...

Nice photo, Dave! Yes, that'll do although my personal preference is photos having a Sierra backdrop. But I won't be one who will be voting.
