Guides to photographing your finds and adding them to your posts

Post by Oxgirl36 »

Please note that from August 2019 you no longer need to worry about resizing your photos or reducing the file size for the majority of photos :D The forum will do it for you.

So just crop them (so you just get the image you want) and that’s it.

Please note though that the 4 photo per day rule still applies. If you want to add more photos than that then please use a hosting site
