    Ok, how about...

    To upload:

    1. Visit http://www.everythingsg.com/index.php?media/ or click on the Media tab at the top of the page.
    2. Click on the Add Media button in the top right corner.
    [​IMG]
    3. Add media to...
    3.1 ...a public site category, select the radio button next to 'A site category' and select the category from the list.
    [​IMG]
    3.2 ...a private album, select the radio button next to 'An album' and either choose a previously created album from the list or click on 'Create an album...'
    [​IMG]
    3.2.1 When creating an album, make sure to set the permissions under the People Who May section. If you leave View as Owner Only, nobody except you will be able to see your pictures!!!
    [​IMG]
    3.2.2 Once an album is created, it can be accessed by navigating to the Media section, as in step 1, then clicking on Your Albums under the Albums section on the left.
    [​IMG]
    3.2.3 Media permissions are fairly self explanatory. For both 'View media in album' and 'Add media to album' they are:
    • Owner Only - only you can View or Add media to an album.
    • People You Follow - only people you have selected to follow can View or Add media to an album.
    • Members Only - only people logged into ETSG can View or Add media to an album.
    • Everyone - everyone, including those not logged into ETSG, can View or Add media to an album.
    • Custom Users - specific users can be defined that can View or Add media to an album.
    Note that in order to add media to an album, you obviously must be able to view it first.
    3.2.4 If permissions ever need to be modified on an album, access the album as in step 3.2.2 and click on the Change Permissions link on the right side under the Album Permissions section.
    [​IMG]
    4. Once the album is selected and/or created, there will be a couple of options for uploading.
    4.1 'Upload an image from your files' allows uploads from your personal computer. If you have Flash enabled, you will be presented with a normal computer folder view, from which you can select multiple images to upload.
    [​IMG]
    If Flash is not enabled, the window will show a single Browse button and only one upload at a time is possible.
    [​IMG]
    4.2 'Upload an image from a URL' allows uploads from a direct URL to a picture. This means something like http://www.wheremypicslive.com/picture.jpg If there is anything else at the end of the URL, like ?432628764 or .html, then you do not have the direct URL to your image and the upload will likely fail.
    [​IMG]
    5. Once uploaded, change the name and description to whatever and make sure to click the Save Media button at the bottom.
    [​IMG]

    To add media from your albums to a post:

    1. In the post editor, click on the camera icon at the top.
    [​IMG]
    2. Your uploaded media will show up at the bottom. Select the picture you want.
    [​IMG]

    To add media not in your album to a post:

    1. In the post editor, click the Upload a File button at the bottom.
    [​IMG]
    2. Just like with your albums, if Flash is enabled, you will see a folder view to upload multiple files. If Flash is not enabled, click Browse to upload a single file.
    3. Click on the Thumbnail or Full Image option next to the picture, depending on how you want it displayed.
    [​IMG]
    4. Post!

    To delete an image from an album:

    1. Access your albums as directed in step 3.2.2 in the Upload section above and open the album with the offending picture.
    2. Click on the picture that has to go!
    3. Click on the trash can icon at the top right.
    [​IMG]
    4. Enter a Reason for Deletion, if desired, and click the Delete Media button.
    [​IMG]
    5. ~*~p00f~*~ Gone!

    To delete an entire album:

    1. Access the album as directed in step 3.2.2 in the Upload section above.
    2. Put a check mark in the top left corner of the album.
    [​IMG]
    3. Click on the Delete... button.
    4. Enter a Reason for Deletion, if desired, and click the Delete Album button.
    [​IMG]
    5. ~*~p00f~*~ Gone!

    Feel free to poach if you want for EpiTalk. The images are set to Members Only, so they won't show up over there unless you grab them and upload.

    I've already done the one for EpiTalk. I was updating the images for ETSG. No biggie. Glad someone took the initiative. :thumb:

    Also, I sent a message to Alex to ask him to activate the delete option for images and albums. We have it activated over at ET. He must have overlooked it here.
