Confuzzled....

I got my BGG Secret Santa present (wooooo!!) and want to post some pictures of the opening of it on the Santa thread and Geeklist.

Is there a way to upload pictures just to my user area, rather than to a specific game page? They're not really game related so I didn't want to clog up the game's page with them.

I've seen lots of other photos from people on the Geeklist but I can't tell where they uploaded them to...

Yes. Every account comes with its own personal gallery.

Go you your account - then select gallery over to the right. Upload as normal and insert as normal.

Thanks.

I thought there was a user gallery but I couldn't find it on my account page.

Oh and remember to resize the image when you include it in a thread/geeklist too.


Insert 'original' after the image ID - quote to see

(It is still dependent on the size of the image you upload, eg a image cannot be made larger than the original. BGG automatically reduces image sizes.)


Default/Small


'large'


'original'

I wish more people who upload personal images on BGG would follow your fine example!

Have a nice geekgold with my compliments.
