Hi all! I'm having some trouble trying to post my photos on the site and thought this would be the ideal place to come for help! Well, the problem is that I can't seem to load the photos onto my galleryin the first place! And so I can't copy the URL to post the photo. Could somebody help me? Thanks in advance!
Cheers and happy modelling!

Is this one of yours?


You may need to login to the photo site again.

(This is how it works with Windows. A Mac user will have to guide you if you use one of those. )

When you get there, click the thumbnail to get a larger pictuire. Right click this and a mesage box opens, click "Properties" at the bottom. Another message box opens. In the middle is "URL Address" Triple click on the text to the right of this starting with h t t p and ending in jpg to highlight it, then right click on the highlighted portion and choose "Copy".
Go back to the thread where you want to post your picture. Click on the little img button above the smilies. The program will insert this [ img ]http://put.url.here/image.file[ /img ] (There will be no spaces, don't add any.) at the end of your post. Highlight the text I have in bold and right click it and choose "Paste" from the options.
Submit your post as normal.

Maybe if you can give us just a little more detail of what exactly is happening when you try ot load the photos. Any error messages you might be gettting etc. I assume that since you have photos in your gallery that you have been able to load them in the past?

Hi, Mary!
This is what happens: I go to "My gallery photos" and click "Upload photos", put the photo URL in place and submit! then nothing happens! Everything goes back to first place- as if I hadn't put any URL and submited! And the photos don't appear in my gallery (is it full?). I really don't understand!
Cheers and happy modelling!

I just did a test pic into my gallery and everything worked fine for me. Soo..a couple of questions..

Are you uploading them from your pc?
Remember to make sure that you are logged into the kitmaker gallery..Click upload photos..Click on Browse..then go to the specific pic you want..double click on the pic..Do this for each pic you wish to upload..then click on Upload/submit..the pics should upload into your gallery space.
