How to Include Photos (Attachments) in Your Ad

Postby Hummer Network on Tue Jul 06, 2010 11:33 am

You can post photos or other attachments when posting an ad, replying to an existing ad, editing an ad you've already posted or when sending a Private Message. The procedure is easy, easier to do than to explain. If you are new at this, you could open a new tab or window to post your ad, and refer back to this step-by-step guide.

Below the message composition window, there are 3 light blue tabs:

Click on the one called "Upload attachment". You should see this:

Click on "Choose File" and find the photo or file on your computer, then click "Open" or "Choose". The file name will appear next to the "Choose file" button.

Then click on "Add the file". Depending on the file size, it may take a moment to upload, then the file name will appear under "Posted attachments" above two buttons "Place inline" or "Delete file" (both of those are optional). When you submit your message (it's recommended to preview it first, and you should see your photo in preview mode), your photo will appear in your message.

File comments can optionally be added in the blank provided.

If a photo exceeds a certain size, a thumbnail will be automatically created. Click on the thumbnail (smaller) image to see the full-size version. If you think your photo appears smaller than you expect, this is why.

To post multiple photos, just repeat the process before submitting the message. You will get a list of "Posted attachments" showing all the ones you have uploaded. Unless placed inline, attachments/photos are displayed in reverse order, the last you you upload will appear first in your message. If the order of photos is important, be sure to upload the last one first and the first one last. Again, it's recommended that you preview your ad before submitting it to make sure it looks the way you want it to look and to make any necessary adjustments.

If you choose "Place inline", you will see attachment tags (with brackets) appear in the message composition window at the point at which your cursor is at the time. If you want to place the attachment elsewhere within your message, you can cut & paste the attachment tag, but be sure to use the ENTIRE tag including all brackets. Preview your ad to make sure it's where you want it to be.

When sending a Private Message, there are no blue tabs. It goes directly to the attachment option and will look like this:

Otherwise, the process is the same.
