Uploading Photos –
 
I’m sure this has been addressed before, but I thought I would offer a tutorial for the Windows® users out there, nonetheless. All Windows® computers have the program Paint installed on them. In using Paint, one can assure that their photos are, sized, oriented, and formatted correctly for upload to LumberJocks.
 

 
No matter what you use to take the photo(s), digital camera, iPhone, etc., transfer the photo(s) from the device to your computer. Once uploaded, open the photo in Paint.
 

 
If what you see looks nothing like the photo you took … some manipulation in needed!
 
The first thing you want to do is to determine the size of the photo. Click IMAGE on the menu bar then click ATTRIBUTES …
 

 
<click>
 

 
I have found that the width of the photo needs to be somewhere between 1500 and 1800. Obviously, this photo needs to be re-sized. Click CANCEL to remove the box and then click IMAGE on the menu bar and click RESIZE/SKEW …
 

 
<click>
 

 
Change the HORIZANTAL from 100 to 50, as well as the VERTICAL from 100 to 50. Click OKAY …
 

 
The image is starting to become recognizable. If we click IMAGE on the menu bar and click ATTRIBUTES we see that the width is between 1500 and 1800, so our size should be go to go …
 

 
Click CANCEL to remove the box. Now let’s rotate the image a bit. Click IMAGE on the menu bar and then click FLIP/ROTATE …
 

 
<click>
 

 
Click the radio button for ROTATE BY ANGLE and SELECT 90° then click OKAY …
 

 
... well that didn’t work! Let’s try that again. Click IMAGE on the menu bar, then click FLIP/ROTATE. Click the radio button for ROTATE BY ANGLE and select 90° … click okay.
 

Now it looks like the photo I remember taking … and the width is between 1500 and 1800. So, click FILE on the menu bar, then click SAVE … call it whatever you’d like as a JPEG and then upload to LumberJocks!
 

 
I hope you found this helpful … any questions, just ask! Thanks!

And a word for Mac users. import in Apple’s Photo which is on all Macs. From there you can crop, brighten, resize, and rotate among other things. Then save them under file – export, as jph’s and any size but medium size will do fine.
