There seems to be quite a few people who have trouble posting pictures and creating galleries. I know there are posts on this site describing how to do it but none have pictures to go along with the written descriptions. I personally seem to be able to follow directions better if they are accompanied by pretty pictures. I posted some of this information on another thread but I don't think most members will see it so I am starting a separate thread so people can find it easier and copy it. You can copy and paste the entire page into a Word document or you can download the Word file by clicking HERE.
Most other forums, at least the ones I frequent, use basically the same format as FTE so most of this information should be able to be use on them too. One thing to note, if you have an image in your FTE gallery you may not be able to use it on another gallery. If you do, your image might show up as being labeled as stolen from FTE. I don't know if this system still does this but it did a while back.
I have tried my best to be as accurate as possible, I might have omitted something. If you have suggestions or corrections let me know and I'll try to adjust it.
First you have to have the image somewhere on the internet, like your gallery:
Right click on the image and click on "Properties"
After the Properties widow pops up highlight and copy the URL of the image
Go to the posting page and click on the image icon.
When the User Prompt window pops up paste the URL of the image you copied
Then click "OK" and you image should be inserted into your post with the necessary coding.
The following information was culmination of my images and bobbytnm's written instructions:
Click on “User CP”
Click on “Edit Gallery”
Click on “Create Album”
On this page, fill out the boxes for Album Title, Description, Etc then click on “Create Album”
On the next page, you will see the title box, etc with the information that you added in the last step, Click on [Edit]
Scroll down until you the small boxes in the middle of the page, one on top of the other with tabs next to them labeled “Browse”
Click on “Browse” this bring up a window titled “choose file” that lets you search your computer for the location to the pics you want to add to the gallery.
Click on the picture that you want (when you find it)
Repeat repeat the last two steps for the next picture.
On the next page you will see the pics you just uploaded. You can now upload more pics or change the sort order or edit the pics you just uploaded. If you don’t want to mess with them then
Click on [main] at the top of the page to take you back to your main gallery page. You will now see a list of your albums. You can create as many albums as you like in your Gallery.

Thanks for all the information bobj49f2 and bobbytnm and I have to compliment you on your choice of picture in the back ground. I had done this once before but it must have been done purely by accident.
You can add a description to your pictures after you have your pictures in your gallery. You can go back and edit your gallery. Click on [Edit] beside your gallery in this widow, under "Albums in Your Gallery":
Then this window will come up:
Just fill in the information in the window under "Description:"
After i read the posting directions 2 or 3 times i might be able to post some photos, I still have a hard time doing scientific things on the computer, LOL i might have to get my 19 & 23 year old kid's to help with the first couple pics,
In other words, for each image click on the icon enter the internet address of the image and once it's posted in your responce field click on the icon again and enter the address of the next image and so on. I think there might be a limit on the number of images but I'm not sure. I have posted as many as five or six per post, you may be able to post more. You're not using band width of this site but each time you post a image from another web site your are actually using that's site band width. Many sites don't like you to post their pictures because of this.
