Posting Photos - Introduction
Our site provide multiple ways to share photos:
1. Sharing photos and albums using Photo Library
To share photos stored on your computer:
1.1 Creating Albums
You can group photos together into albums. This makes them more accessible to viewers and easier to find. You can create an album as part of the photo posting process (instructions above) or you can do it any time later in a separate process. To do it as a separate process:
Note: You can also put photos posted by other members in your album.
2. Sharing photos and albums using your Flickr account
Flickr is a popular photo sharing service provided by Yahoo. If you already have a Flickr or Yahoo account you can import photos from Flickr right into an album on our site:
3. Sharing photos using a discussion post
You can insert photos into a discussion post. Click here for instructions.
What is the difference between sharing via the Library and the Forum?
Inserting a photo in a forum post can greatly help in illustrating a point or a question you are making. "A photo speaks more than 1000 words..." However, photos shared this this way are short lived. Finding photos in a discussion post made maybe, three weeks ago or 6 months ago is often impossible.
Sharing photos via the Library is ideal if you want your photos to be easier to find and long lasting. Especially if you annotate them with a description and title that makes it possible to find via the search function. Many members also prefer browsing photos rather than discussion posts.
4. Share photos taken with your smartphone or tablet
You can use your smartphone (i.e.phones like iPhone, Samsung Galaxy) or tablet (i.e. iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab) to take a photo and post it directly to our Photo Library. The easiest way is by using a specific mobile version of our site:
Note: Fees may apply from your phone service provider or mobile internet provider. The Commander Club does not charge you anything for this service.
5. Sharing photos using e-mail
If you have problems sharing photos on your smartphone or tablet as described in section 4 above you can use this alternative way:
Notes: The information you type in the mail's Subject field will be used as the name for the photo. Fees may apply from your phone service provider or mobile internet provider. The Commander Club does not charge you anything for this service.
