How to create a photo album for use on the Digital Forum

Effective today, users will be able to create their own picture album for use on Digital Home.

Each member can create their own album and store images. The primary purpose is so members can upload photos for use on the forum.

Please ask any questions regarding Photo Albums on our Member Feedback forum.

Starting Your Own Picture Album

  1. Under Community click on Pictures and Albums
  2. Click on "Click Here to add an album and start uploading pictures"
  3. Upload your pictures

General Rules

Pictures can be no larger than 600 x 800 pixels and 100k in size. The number of pictures is limited by what usergroup you belong to

  • New members - See Bolding at the end of this post.
  • Junior members - 10 photos max
  • Regular Members - 75 photos max
  • DHC Supporters - 150 photos max
  • Premium Member - 200 photos max

- Pictures may not be linked to from other websites and may only be viewed on Digital Home. Failure to follow this rule could result in suspension from the forum.

- Digital Home reserves the right to remove albums created by forum members who have not logged onto the site in 60 days or who have been banned from the site.

To use a photo in your post
  1. Under Quick Links click on Pictures and Albums (may be under "tools" depends on the browser/device)
  2. Click on picture you wish to put in your post
  3. Highlight and copy the field entitled "BB Code"
  4. Paste the code in your post

It's also possible to upload your picture to any photo sharing website and simply copy/paste that URL into your post. Remember to keep the size of the photo down to a reasonable size to avoid bandwidth issues and to respect those using phones or tablets.

Please note;

When using a photo in your post please pay attention to instruction #3 which states Highlight and copy the field entitled "BB Code"

Do not copy the Album URL and try to use the image tag, it won't work.

FYI: The link to pictures and Albums has moved and is now located under the "Tools, Quick Links, Pictures & Albums" dropdown.
