How to Add Photos to your Trip Report

Tips and Guidelines for Adding Pictures to a Trip Report

There are two ways to add pictures to a trip report. You can either upload the pictures directly to the PassPorter Message Board, or you can link to another online location where you have uploaded your pictures. Instructions are below.

Uploading Pictures Directly to the Passporter Message Board
  • Create a new post by clicking the "New Topic" button or the "Post Reply" button in the forum.
  • When you are ready to upload a picture, click the icon that looks like a paperclip.
  • At this point, you can either upload a file from your computer, or upload a file from a URL. Since you’ll be uploading a file from your computer, hit “Browse” and you can choose the file from your computer.
  • Notice that there are now size limits (640x480 max pixels) and memory limits (50kB at this point) for attachments. If your images are larger than the size or memory limits, they will not be able to be uploaded to the board. Please check your picture size and memory to avoid problems.
  • Once you find the location of your file, double click it so the pathname is now in the box. Then click the “Upload” button (see above image). If the file is too large, you will see a message at the top of the box that says “File xxxx is xxx kB and too large for this type of attachment”. If the file is the correct size, you should be able to see the filename as an attachment in the “Current Attachments” box. You can upload up to 5 images in a single post. If you want to go back and add another image/upload, follow the steps above and “Browse” your computer again.
  • When you are done with your uploads, click on the "Close This Window" button at the bottom of the “Managing Attachments” window. You are brought back to the main page of your post.
  • Scroll below the main text box and you should see your attachments under “Additional Options”.
  • Click on your attachment and it will open a new window showing your picture. COPY the URL address of the picture. After you copy the URL, you can close the window that opened up with the picture.
  • Go down into the message box of your post and find the location where you want to insert the picture. Click the icon that looks like a mountain scene. A window will pop up, asking for the URL of the image. Paste the URL that you just copied into the box, and hit OK.
  • You should be able to see your picture in your post now. You can hit the “Preview Post” to see what your post will look like once submitted, or you can click the “Submit New Thread/Submit Reply” button to submit your post to the thread/forum.
  • You can add more pictures to the post before you’ve submitted it, just click on each of your attachments to get the URL address, and then follow the steps above. Once done with all your attachments, click the “Submit New Thread” button (or “Submit New Post” if you’re replying in an existing thread).
