Hi cathloe! You cannot upload any photos until the number beside your name turns 500. That's the number of posts you have made. So until you have made 500 posts, that's the only time you will be able to upload any photos. Good luck and happy myLotting!

Secretbear is wrong. You CAN upload photos to your profile, to Interests and to your own discussions. You cannot add photos to responses and comments, however, until you achieve a user rating of 500.

Sorry, I stand corrected. I just read that somewhere from another myLotter.

If you mean you want to attach photos on your discussions then you still have to wait till you reach a minimum of 500 posts before you can do it. And when you reach that minimum make sure your photo is not too big. There is a minimum size indicated in the FAQs but as for me I just adjust sizes of my photos into small web size by using Microsoft office Picture Manager so that uploading takes very little time.

You can upload photos, subject to certain restrictions. The images should be in .GIF or .JPG format (if they are photos, they are probably in .JPG format); they must be less than 5Mb in size (many cameras these days produce files which are larger than this, so you may have to resize the images before uploading); there are (unspecified) restrictions on the number of photos which can be uploaded in total (not by any specific user) daily, so you may just be unlucky: try again another day. Read the FAQs here: http://www.mylot.com/o/faq/faq10.aspx and the Photo Guidelines here: http://www.mylot.com/o/photoguidelines.aspx DON'T Post copyrighted photos. Make sure you have permission to upload any photos you are using on myLot.

I just selected it under my photos. If you wish to put a primary pic go to your profile and select the thing under the avatar. either delete or change I think..
