    I managed to get one pic on the showcase, (though I don't remember how) but can't figure out how to add an additional pic. Help please?

    Went into the showcase already started on my Drifter. Clicked on edit. Towards the bottom of the page it said upload items. Picked an image from my old files, added it, and then it said save changes. Clicked it. In a few days, once someone checks the photo to make sure it is not a virus or porn, it will appear. I think.
    Maybe this helps.

    Remember photos can only be a certain size. You may have to change setting on your camera or compress a file you already have. JohnnyBiker mentioned that on an earlier thread I remember. If it won't upload you may need to change camera setting and retake photos or compress em.

    Okay. I forgot to resize it. Thanks. I just now got the pic to upload, but I guess it's as you say, it takes days for it to show up. Took 10 days to get my first picture to show up. The other pictures on the rest of the forum aren't delayed like those are, so what gives?

    Is it even possible to post more than one picture in the showcase?

    Checked my Drifter showcase, and the pic I added the other day showed up. When in the persons Showcased item, at the upper left corner there are three choices, (I think image gallery?) furthest choice on the right, that takes you into the other images that are associated with that persons showcase.
    This made sense when I typed it, but after I read it it sounds confusing. Just try it, worst thing that happens is we see family reunion pics or something..

    When someone puts up a showcase picture it is put on hold until either Ken or one of the moderators approve it. I think its to keep any porn out. I've approved several.
