The easiest way to add photos to your Portfolio is to with the bulk media uploader. Using the bulk media uploader, you can add up to 100 photos at a time. The following formats are supported: .jpg, .png, and .gif.
To upload photos, go to the PHOTOS tab nested under COMMUNITY and click the "Add Photos" link. Or from your Profile Page click on the "Photos" link on the left hand side. This will take you to a list of all your photos. Click on the "Add Photos" link on the top right hand side. Then, just click the "Click to Add Photos" icon to select which images you'd like to upload from your computer. If you want to select multiple photos at a time, just hold down the "Control" (PC) or "Command" (mac) key on your keyboard and click the extra photos.
After you add one batch, you can add even more photos to the list with the "Add More" link, and remove some using the "X" link to the right of each photo. Once you're ready to upload, click the "Upload" button.
Once you’ve uploaded your photos, you’ll be able to create a new album for them or assign your photos to an existing album you’ve created. To add a Title, Description, and Tags for each photo, you can click the "Add more details for these photos" link. When you're done, click "Save". This part is very important for your images to be found in search engines. Try describing them as short phrases instead of single tag terms. Silver, ring, pearl, might not get any traffic but “silver ring with pearls” might. The more descriptive you are the easier it is for people to find your images.
You can also click "My Photos" to immediately start browsing your newly uploaded photos.
Do you already have your photos stored on Flickr? Why not just import them directly. Instead of uploading from your computer click the "Add Photos From Flickr" link to continue to Flickr and sign in to your account. You will then be taken back to your Ning Network. Here choose which of your Flickr photos you'd like to upload.
Use the available options to get your most recent photos, get all photos with the same tag or get all of your photos in Flickr. You can also choose to import descriptions or the full-size version of each photo. Click "Get Photos."
Don’t have a ton of photos to upload? On dial-up and the bulk media uploader doesn’t work? You can always use the simple uploader by clicking the "simple uploader" link at the bottom of the page.
