Sirs...
OK... I know I'm a newbie... but I am experiencing upload problems in various areas... Maybe you can help.

I am still a free member... and maybe I don't have permissions to do the following.

MY ALBUMS...
No problem... I was able to create and add photos to two albums just fine.

FORUM...
SUCCESSFUL FORUM TEXT ADDITION – I Added a Text only post to "Introduce Yourself" forum just fine.

FAILED FORUM PHOTO UPLOAD - I tried to add a post to "Nudes--Glamour, Erotic, Artistic, Fine-Art, Figure" Forum. The interface seemed to take my text OK... but when I tried to attach a photo from my computer I get the following error: "relative-01-l.jpg: Exceeds forum quota by 672.3 KB" The file I was trying to upload is exactly 672 KB. The dimensions seem within your Max filesize of 976.6 KB and 1500x1500 (mine was 900 x 667)

FAILED PORTFOLIO UPLOAD - I navigated to the Glamour (nudes) portfolio section and attempted an upload of a photo. My image is 600x445 and 133 KB. The interface seemed to accept the photo and description and I didn't notice any error messages... but it does not show up in the portfolio section. Do these additions need to be moderated before they are posted... or are they supposed to go up immediately?

SUGGESTION... I think I am fairly "pweter" and forum literate... but perhaps a help forum or more info in the “How do I” forum with some sticky’s on the key site elements might be really helpful to new users. Maybe the instructions could be included in the "welcome" mail to new users as well.

For instance…

I am confused about the difference in an Album and a Portfolio… and when it is appropriate to post what photos where… I did find a link to a post explaining the GG Portfolio system… but all the images seem to be broken in that post and thus I can’t seem to make heads or tails of it. (http://www.garageglamour.com/forums/articles/34863-using-gg-portfolio-system.html)

Maybe a series of sticky’s in the “HOW DO I” forum that answers the following might be helpful…

Albums – What they are and how they work
Who has permission to create one.
Why I should create one
How to create one
How to add to one
Who can see them
Who can comment on them
List of common uploading problems and potential cures…

Portfolios – What they are and how they work
How they differ from Albums
Who has permission to create one.
Why I should create one
How to create one
How to add to one
Who can see them
Who can comment on them
Are submissions available immediately or do they need to be moderated before becoming visable.
List of common uploading problems and potential cures…

Warmest regards,
Dave

Dave,
I'll try to explain how to post to your portfolio. In the upper right hand side of the screen click on "photos" it's right between "my home" and "profile". Then on the left hand side of the screen, just under breaking news, in the yellow area, click where it says "portfolio system your" it's in orange. Then right above the A B C's click on "upload" On this screen make sure you select a catagory then click continue. On this screen just browse to photos on your computer and follow the instructions.

Thanks for your reply.... I appreciate your efforts.

That is exactly what I did... but I get the following error "Sorry, Robopz: Bad Open - Cannot Open the images Directory for Writing".

It sounds like the GG system images directory is not opening for my files to write to. I have tried this from two computers (and double checked my file sizes and tried uploading from Mac & PC) and still same results...

Sounds like maybe your profile is broken. Have you tried sending a pm to Rolando?

I get the same message and getting the same initial errors. I'm a life member, so it's not a membership issue.

I talked to Rolando about this and discovered that you can not attach images to posting instead you use a link to your profile album or other location of of image. Create an album in your profile, open the image you want posted, and at the bottom is the BB code. It looks like "" and copy this into your new posting. I suggested to Rolando to remove the attachment option in order to remove this confusion.

There's got to be a simplier way to add pics to our threads (posts).

This is my attempt to post a picture of new model "Sissy" She is a drama student showing off some of her talent. How do you make it a larger size?
