Using the Photo Galleries

Registered users to the PhilmontForum.com have the ability to upload photos to two different photo galleries on the website. The first is the main photo gallery - an installation of the Coppermine photo gallery - accessable by clicking on the "Photo Gallery" link found on the top of any web page. This gallery houses general Philmont and Scouting images. The second is a profile photo gallery, accessable by viewing or editing your profile, that users can use to upload photos and files to that will present when viewing their profile.

The articles listed below should help all registered users in resizing photots, uploading photos to, and using the main photo gallery and the user (profile) photo gallery.

I use the free program Irfanview to resize multiple photos at one time. Instructions for using Irfanview can be found below.
