January Contest

I couldn't download the photo I'd like to submit for the January contest. I had already used the photo in a previous contest last year, but I'd like to use the same photo. Photo: Boat meets Water

If you want to submit a previously entered photo, the best thing to do is rename it and then it should work.

Yes,

I did try to re-name it before I downloaded it. It still came up with a message with the previous name.

you might have to just re-set my submittal page. Maybe delete it? So I can go back and re-name the photo and start over.

I have not re-set anything.

Can you link to the picture concerned?

You should be able to simply download it and rename it.

If the photo is already uploaded, there's no need to re upload it- you can just embed the existing one directly.

Mark, no need. If you uploaded it once, it's in the system. Here's how to get it in a new post:

Write your new post, press enter and move the cursor down a line or two, and select "go advanced" from the options at the bottom.
Look on the right side of the screen, you'll see the "smilies" available, and below that, "insert album photos"
Select "insert album photos" and on the next screen, you have options to select an image from several sources, select "attachments" and your previous upload should appear there (if you've posted a lot of images, you'll have to scroll the entries to find the one you want)
Click on the image you want and it will be embedded in the new post.
Hope that helps!

It certainly helped me

I had no idea that functionality existed.

Thanks Julie.

You're welcome, Peter, glad to help!

It is indeed a useful function, especially if you've run into that "you've already uploaded this file" wall and yet you see other members posting the same image in multiple places.

That's how they do it!
