How to add pictures, mp4 videos, media to your profile

There are many different ways to add pictures or videos here. You could add media to your own blog / site, add “docs” to groups, and other ways to upload and share pics and videos. The most common way people add pictures and videos (videos must be in mp4 format!) here is to their profile with the media tab.

Hover over your screen name in the top right corner of the screen (Howdy Screen name) – the drag your mouse down to media, click on photos..
this will take you to your profile, and the sub tab for your media. Around the middle of the screen is “Upload Media” – click that.

Once you have found this, there are other ways to get to the same screen, and more ways to add pictures and videos here. I’ll post about other methods at another time.

When you add pictures to your profile via the media tab, they will normally show up in the activity stream that most see on the main site pages.

Adding a picture, video or audio clip to “groups” activity / wall is a bit different. There is a new quick “how-to” on doing that here: How to add pics, videos to groups

  1. @rusky – to messages, like to private messages?
    I’m not sure we have added that option – but I have seen some code discussed that would add that feature – just can’t remember exactly where I saw that discussion at the moment.

    as far as adding pics to your profile and such, that is easy – and I guess you could right click and copy the image url.. then post that in a private message and people could click that to come to your album and see a pic right now.

  2. I have a blackberry and wish I didn and I am changing that today for the most user friendly and fast and with very good features samsung galaxy u can video edit even take still photos from video instantly upload and keep the quality

  3. I’m not able to upload any pics or video with my phone anywhere. In group or on my wall or page not sure why. Anyone know what to do? Or do you need a PC to upload?

  4. @pally3306 – our system does not handle pics and videos with apple / ios devices sadly. So iphones, ipads and the like will not be able to do most things with video and pics. It’s a problem we may work on again in 2019, but not sure if we can.
