Some of you have asked how to post, tag or save hike photos from the meetup website, or how to see all of your own photos cataloged. Here is how to do it:

HOW TO DOWNLOAD OR UPLOAD PICTURES TO OR FROM THE MEETUP WEBSITE:

After every hike, some of your fellow hikers post pictures of our hikes on the meetup website. You can also do this. If you want to upload photos or post comments about them or “tag” yourself or your friends in them, you need to be logged into the site with your email address and your password. If you want to download pictures, you do not need to be logged into the site.

Here is how to do it:


DOWNLOADING PICTURES:

From the main website: http://www.meetup.com...­
(NOTE: YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE LOGGED INTO THE SITE TO DOWNLOAD PICTURES)

1. Move your mouse so the cursor is over the brown box that says “meetups”.
Left click on “past”.

2. You will see a list of hikes that already occurred. Then click on the name of the hike at which you seek to download, tag or upload the pictures from. To the right of each named hike is “27 photos” uploaded or some other number. Left click on that phrase.

3. The site will take you to the photo album for that hike. Right above each picture is a set of left-right opposed arrows. When you click on either, you go to the previous or the next photos in the album.

4. Here’s how to download photos: to the right of the arrows is the phrase “ALL SIZES”. Left click on this, and a box will appear . In the box you will see blue letters that give you a choice of “thumbnail”, “small”, “medium”, “large”, and “original”.

If you left click on any of these blue labels, the photos will appear on your screen and all you need to do to save it in your computer is then click “file” and “save as” in the upper left corner of the screen.

If you choose “original”, you get the exact photo from the camera. Choosing one of the “thumbnail” to “large” sizes gives you a digitally compressed version that will take up less space if you want to email it or post it on your Facebook page.

You can also copy the long website address under each blue label and email that to friends, and that will take you to the photo, too. (it looks like this: http://photos4.meetup...­)


TAGGING PICTURES:

LOG INTO THE WEBSITE
Perform steps 1 thru 3 above, then
Click on the brown box that says “Tag this photo”

Click on people's faces in the photo to tag them. Then type in their name. The automatic people-finding function in the website will show you a photo of them if you don’t know their last name, for example.

Press ESC or click Done to finish tagging.

One of the benefits of tagging is when you go to your personal meetup page, (or if you click on your name below any photo which you are in, which takes you to your personal page) you can left click on the tab above your main photo that says “photos”. There you will see every hike photo which you have been tagged in. You can send this link to friends, or use it show on your next job interview to become a professional hiker, etc. You can also download photos from your personal page without having to search thru old hike photo albums to find them.


UPLOADING PHOTOS:

LOG INTO THE WEBSITE
Perform steps 1 thru 3 above, then

Left click on the phrase “add photos”.

TO UPLOAD A WHOLE BUNCH OF PHOTOS:
A box will appear showing the list of folders and files in your computer. If the photos are in a folder, double-click on the folder, then left click once on the first picture you want to upload. The name of that photo will turn blue. Then slide your mouse cursor down to the last file name and hold down the “shift” button, and left click on the last photo. This will make the filenames of the entire collection of photos turn blue.

Next left click on the “open” box. A new box will appear that says “upload photos to: _______(name of hike).

Click on the red “upload” button, and the site will upload all photos at once (it’ll take a few minutes, but this saves you having to laboriously upload each photo one at a time).

(you can still laboriously upload photos one at a time by clicking on the filename, then clicking “open” and then the red “upload” button.)
