    1: Upload directly to the post
    On the post page, there is a button labeled "Upload a File". When that is clicked, choose a file to upload onto your post. From there, you can add it to your post as a thumbnail, or a full size image. Screen Shot 2017-03-19 at 9.54.24 PM copy.png

    What's the correct etiquette for posting photo's?
    I noticed on the "black and white" section there are multiple pages and contributors, but on the majority of other topics, there seems to be only one. Do I simply "join in" on a thread, or do I need to create my own to avoid offending the OP?
    Also, I notice most have their own personal gallery. Does this build up naturally as you contribute pics, or is it something that has to be created?
    Thanks.

    Just join in with an existing thread if you wish. Or feel free to start a new thread. If you add to an existing thread, that thread goes to the top of the page. You are correct in saying that most threads are single person, but there are a number of multiple user and page threads. Just post under the post your photos part. Just join in, and if you're doing something wrong, one of us will point you in the right direction.
