Posting pictures is very simple, if you are nervous about how to post, dont be! This guide is meant to quickly and easily explain how to post pictures from your computer, to TrophyChaser.com for free hosting. The nice thing about having your pictures hosted online, is they are available on any computer with an internet connection.


This guide is to teach new users how to get their pictures hosted on the internet. It uses the standard Categories that are already set up. If you wish to create your own album to contain your own personal pictures, please read the Create Your own Photo Albums guide.

Lets begin. First start off by locating the picture you wish to upload. Make sure its under 2048KB in size. Also make sure its largest dimention is under 2048 in size. Microsoft has a free tool to aid in resizing images if you need to reduce them for internet use. The tool is available at:

Simply right click any image and select the resize option and wala, it magically creates a copy of the image in the selected size. Pretty spiffy. Ok assuming your image is of the proper accepted size and dimentions, lets move to the actual uploading steps.






Step 1. Click the Photo Gallery link from the Main Menu on the upper left side of the website.




Step 2. Click the Upload Picture link




Step 3. Click the Album "pulldown" list and select the proper category your picture falls under.




Step 4. Click the "Browse" button. This then opens a popup window allowing you to browse to the image stored on your computer.




Step 5. Browse to the image you wish to upload, click "Open"




Step 6. Enter in a Title for the image, a description if you wish, and any keywords that describe the picture (optional: these words are used if someone preforms a search for specific picture types).




Step 7. Double check the entered fields that all your information looks correct, title, description... even the image name. When it looks accurate click the "Upload Picture" button.


Step 8. Thats it! You should now see the following message if everything worked correctly. Your newly uploaded image will be approved and activated shortly by administrators. Content is only rejected if its of a pornographic or otherwise offensive nature.





Pretty simple overall. Give it a try! We'd love to see your pictures.
