Photo Gallery Guide - How to Resize, Upload & Post Photos
Welcome to the step by step guide to the 420 Magazine Photo Gallery.
We use a photo gallery for this forum to keep images organized and easy to access, while maintaining an archive for our readers to learn from. Our Posting Guidelines require all photos to be uploaded to our gallery before being posted. This is because off-site links can be deleted or moved outside of our control, leaving 420 Magazine with dead links and an untidy forum. The process is easy once you get the hang of it. First you upload the photo to the appropriate sub-gallery, then you can view it directly or embed it in a thread. If you still need help, please feel free to send an email to email@example.com
Our photo gallery is only for Cannabis, Hemp and directly related images.
Photos of anyone looking even remotely like a minor, will be deleted without warning.
Non-420 photos may only be uploaded to our "Off-Topic" photo gallery. Please note these photos must be appropriate and otherwise conform to our off topic photo tutorial and guideline.
To start off, you need to make sure your pictures are the correct format.
Our gallery accepts jpg, jpeg, gif, png file formats.
Photo size must not exceed 10MB.
If your photos are larger than 10MB:
Adobe Photoshop, Aperture and Microsoft Office Picture Manager can resize your photos.
If you don’t have any of these programs, here are some links to free online photo resizing tools:
Free Online Picture Resizer - Crop and Resize photos online for free
Online Image Resizer - Resize digital photo, images or pictures online
Resize Images online
Resize Images Online at ResizePic
Click on the Gallery button from the drop down menu that can be found at the top of any 420 Magazine page.
When the gallery main page opens, click on the 'Upload Photos' button.
When the 'Photo Upload' window opens you'll have four things to do.
First, choose the category you want your picture in.
Second, click on the button that says, "Select Files for Upload" to gain access to your computers image gallery where you'll select your picture for uploading.
Third, click the 'Upload/Submit' button to begin upload process.
Forth, once you get to the photo processing page, click the "Process" button. It's important that you complete this final step. Your photo(s) will not upload correctly unless you do.
TIP: Insert your pics in the proper categories. Buds into 'Buds' category, Plants in 'Plants', etc. All of those images will then appear in your own 'Members Gallery' automatically as well as being available in their proper categories where most gallery gazers tend to look.
If you have any problems try the process again carefully. If you're still having trouble,
please contact The 420 Staff for further assistance.

UPLOADING AND EMBEDDING PHOTOS IN THREADS USING AN ANDROID
In your mobile browser, go to 420magazine.com and select "Gallery"
You will be brought to this screen which is the our Gallery page. Make sure you are signed in to use the upload function.
Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and find "Upload Photos" and select it.
You will be taken to our Photo Upload page, just as if you were on a desktop
Scroll down and select "Select Files for Upload"
Every phone is different, so you might see a different screen when you go to select your files.
As far as we can tell, they are in order from first to last in your camera gallery on your phone. We selected the last photo we did.
Once you have selected you photo(s) for uploading, you can confirm every photo has been submitted for a brief period of time, then you select "Upload/Submit"
You will be then taken to the Post Process Photo Upload screen where you can choose to not upload or you confirm to upload all or selected photos.
Go to the thread you are trying to post the photo in and select the text field where you would type in your messages. In the bottom the left corner of the text field, there is a button there that says "My Photos", select it.
A pop up screen will appear with your photo gallery and you will see the image(s) that you just uploaded. Select the image you wish to post, and select the X on the right hand corner to go back to your post.
Depending on your settings, you will either see the photo coding like in our photo, or you will see the photo you want posted.
Lastly, select "Post Quick Reply" to submit your post and see your photo on the post. Or you can save trouble of editing after submitting and select "Go Advanced" which will show you a preview of what your post will look like, you can make changes from here just that much easier. And being mobile, EASY is something necessary.
Super 420 thanks to Truth Seeker for the instructions and photos!
