To upload pictures from your hard disk to Yuku requires that you store your pictures in an Image Album attached to your Yuku Account.
UPLOADING IMAGES TO YOUR ALBUMS:
To view your Image Album(s) click on the link called 'Images' which appears at the top left of your screen, close to 'Welcome xxxxxxxx' and to the left of 'Logout'.
This will now display your current Image Albums. You may wish to create a new album to contain your uploaded pictures, in which case click on 'Create New Album'.
If you clicked 'Create New Album' enter the name of the Album and press 'Submit'. no other information is required.
Now open the Album by clicking on it.
Now click on 'Upload File'. You will be presented with a screen which will allow you to upload up to 5 files at once. Press 'Browse' to browse your hard disk to find a picture(s) to be uploaded into your Album. It is possible to rotate the picture(s) as it is uploaded using the indicators on the screen. Now press the 'Upload' button
You can repeat the upload process as many times as needed.
The pictures will be loaded into the Album for future use in posting messages in the Forums.
Once finished uploading click on the 'Back' button to view your album folders.
POSTING PICTURES FROM YOUR ALBUMS INTO MESSAGES:
Start a new topic or 'Reply' to a post in an existing topic (DON'T USE QUICK REPLY, BECAUSE YOU CAN'T POST PICTURES INTO QUICK REPLIES EASILY)
At the point in your message where you wish to post the image, position the text cursor and then press the 'Insert Image' icon at the top of the text box (the icon to the right of the broken chain icon)
This will take you to your Album Folders from which you can select the image to be posted. Select your image. There is also a small tick box marked 'Linked Thumbnail'. If you tick it, a small image will be posted into your message rather the full sized image. If visitors to your message then click on this small version of the pic, they will see the full sized image.
If you wish to post the full sized image directly into your message, leave the tick box unchecked.
Once your message text and pictures are complete, click the 'Preview' button to see what your message will look like to others. You can alter the text and pictures if you need to at this point.
Once happy with the message click the 'Post' button.
