Uploading Images

For best results make your photo 300 pixels wide by 200 pixels high. To make the upload times faster, especially if you are on a modem connection, reduce the image size to less than 100K. Most time when you crop your photo to 300 pixels wide by 200 pixels high, the image size will come down to less than 100K bytes.

If your photo is larger than 100K there are number of free tools that you can download and use on your Windows computer. We recommend Infran and/or Easy Thumbnails. Please use these tools to crop and reduce your photo size before you upload them.

When you are uploading photos please keep in mind they only needs to be uploaded once. You can edit your ad without uploading the photos again. Just click next through the Upload Photo page. If you do need to upload a new photo, the whole set would need to be uploaded, even the photos that you are not updating.

To upload an photo file click the Browse button and then locate the image file on your computer file system. Double click on the image file name and it will be selected for uploading. Then do the same for the other photo files. Please note that the image files need be of the type of jpg, gif or png.

You can include a Caption to describe the picture. This will be shown in the form of a tool tip when the mouse is held stationary on the photo.

After uploading photos preview of your ad is displayed. This gives you a chance to verify and make sure the right photos got uploaded. If you are editing an ad the old photos may show on the preview. This is because your web browser stores (caches) images for faster viewing. To see the new photos click Refresh button on your broswer.
