Someone asked me how to upload photos to this site.
It is 'somewhat' cumbersome, but below are the step-by-step instructions

Now that John (the 'club photographer') is unlikely to be joining to many more 'local' trips (he lives on the 'wrong' side of the state now), folks should be encouraged to enter a few of their favorite trip photos.

Notes :
* know where & which photos you want to upload (on your computer)
* If you can save your photo(s) to a smaller (file) size (less resolution), it will upload much faster.
* You can delete the photo(s) after you upload them (in case you uploaded the wrong one).

Instructions:
- - - - - -
* goto fska website
http://www.clubkayak.com/fska/
* login
* click 'Photo Gallery'
* click 'Upload Photos'
* upload the photos:
- after 'File Name:', click 'Browse...' , then navigate to the folder with your photos, select one photo to upload (you will upload any others later), then click OK
- give the photo a title, after: 'Photo Title:'
- enter the date the photo was taken, after 'Photo Date:'
- (OPTIONAL): enter keywords that could be used to find your photo after 'Keywords:'
- (OPTIONAL): enter a description of the photo, after 'Description:'
* click 'Upload' button at the bottom of the form
- click OK
* WAIT until the photo has been uploaded.
You will know it is finished when the form is cleared, ready for you to FINISH or Enter another photo

Now, after you have uploaded a photo, you have 3 choices:
1) Quick upload of another photo (will use same 'Date' with no option to enter 'keywords')
2) Normal upload of another photo (will use same form to enter another photo as the one you just entered)
3) Complete (return to 'Photo Gallery')

Do 1)Quick OR 2)Normal OR 3)Complete
1) on the 'Quck Form' (you are there now):
- after 'File Name:', click 'Browse...' , then navigate to the folder with your photos, select one photo to upload (you will upload any others later), then click OK
- give the photo a title, after: 'Photo Title:'
- (OPTIONAL): enter a description of the photo, after 'Description:'
- click 'Upload' button at the bottom of the form
- click OK
- WAIT until the photo has been uploaded.

2) on the 'Quck Form' (you are there now):
- click 'Show All Fields' (this is underneath 'Upload Another Photo (Quick Form)' )
Now, enter same as you did for the 1st photo:
- after 'File Name:', click 'Browse...' , then navigate to the folder with your photos, select one photo to upload (you will upload any others later), then click OK
- give the photo a title, after: 'Photo Title:'
- enter the date the photo was taken, after 'Photo Date:'
- (OPTIONAL): enter keywords that could be used to find your photo after 'Keywords:'
- (OPTIONAL): enter a description of the photo, after 'Description:'
- click 'Upload' button at the bottom of the form
- click OK
- WAIT until the photo has been uploaded.

3) Click 'Return to Photo Gallery' at bottom left of form
