new to site

Hi
I am ozarker and new to site and the world of internet. I am 68 years old and not really sure if I am in the right place. I joined this site to get information to take pictures better. I have had my Pentax forever i received it as a gift in the 60's and it takes great pictures. If I can figure it out I will up load one. I have learned a great deal from just reading the forum.
Thanks to all who partisipate.

I have a K1000 and it takes beautiful pictures. I am trying to figure out how to upload some pictures but so far all have failed to up load. I will figure it out eventually. Thanks for your reply guess I did something right.

Hi ozarker - welcome.

I've had similar problems when attempting to upload a file. Normally the cause has been one of two issues: either the file I want to upload is to large (I think the size limit is 1MB), or that file is opened in another program on my computer.

Because your photo is attached to this forum thread, it is only visible here.

If you are interested in uploading a collection of photos so that others may view them as a group, you might consider the 'Edit Albums' option available under the 'My Account' button on the top-right of your page. There you will be able to add albums and upload photos to them. Once you have photos there, you can share the address (URL) of those albums to whomever you like (assuming you set them as public). As an example, here is a link to my albums: hollywoodfred's Albums - PentaxForums.com.

But a word of caution, a public album will be viewable by anyone on the internet, assuming they could find the URL.

You might also check out the options listed under the 'Photos' menu selection. I've not used it, but it looks like the central location for sharing photos. Here's a brief explanation: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/forum-suggestions-news-help/152032-questi...galleries.html

Hope this helps.

Fred
