What images are allowed?

Our photo gallery is only for Cannabis, Hemp and directly related images. We moderate all images uploaded to the forum. Non-420 photos may only be uploaded to our "Off-Topic" photo gallery. Please note that these photos must be appropriate and otherwise conform to our Forum Guidelines. Photos of people are discouraged for security reasons and photos of minors will be deleted without warning.

How can I edit my pictures to make them smaller?

You can use many programs for image resizing. Adobe Photoshop, Apple Photos, Gimp, InfanView and Microsoft Photo Editor to name a few. 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

Where are my pictures?

By default, all pictures are stored in Member Galleries. Every image is tagged with the poster’s member name so they are easy for you to find in your own gallery. From the main menu, go to: “Your Media”.

Can I get rid of the file name on images I post because it looks busy?

Yes, you can. See this post, contributed by a member: Stripping Gallery Data From Your Post.

Can I delete or edit a picture once it is posted?

Short answer: no. Once an image is posted, it will stay on our server indefinitely. This is for the preservation of our forum and for your security. We will not sell or otherwise distribute your images outside of 420 Magazine. If you have inadvertently posted a picture that you feel may jeopardize your security, please contact a forum moderator.

You can edit the image’s tags, add a comment and share an image by navigating to the image in “Your Media”.

What should I do if someone posts an inappropriate image?

If you see an objectionable picture that has been posted, please use the post “Report” button to flag it for a moderator.
