**This is a perfect time to remind people, newbies and oldsters, who 
want to upload photos to the Wiki pages to go to…
and follow the directions.

Pertinent points:
Name your file with underscores, preferably.
Genus_species_PhotographerInitials.jpg eg. Brodiaea_elegans2_SH.jpg
Captialize Genus, underscore, lower case species photo number, 
underscore, initials, period, jpg

Sizing your photo file:
File size UNDER 100k, resolution no more than 72 dpi.
Photos wider than taller: width NO MORE than 600 pixels.
Photos taller than wider: height NO MORE than 500-550 pixels.
This allows viewing on most browser screens without scrolling.

See the Upload files page… for 
uploading your file.
See Adding pages for information on adding pages…
Remember to sign in with your name as one word  (WikiWord) using 
capital letter first name, capital letter last name, e.g. SusanHayek.
If you sign in any other way you'll receive an error message.

When you accomplish getting your file added to a page =D> , please 
announce the new file by PAGE URL, not photo URL.
We move files into subdirectories on the administrative site, and if 
you give the group the link to the photo, when it is moved the list 
members will not be able to link to it.
For example: Mary Sue added a photo file to the Nerine page. The link 
to the photo will be the genus page URL…  NOT a 
photo file URL.

Any questions ?
