Add an image to your profileIf you have a digital photo of your Volvo 480 and would like to add it to the website, you need to have it stored on the Internet somewhere. There are several options that will work, like creating a Geocities.com account or a Photobucket.com account. (Important: photos stored on a MSN account will NOT be visible to others...)
Photobucket.com has proven itself to be a reliable website. It works like an online photoalbum, you can create multiple albums and sub-albums, and store many photos on your account. We will give you a very short tutorial on how to how to use photobucket.com at the bottom of this page. We will first proceed with how to add photos to your account on the Clubsite.
Adding photos to your account on the Clubsite is pretty straightforward. You log in on the Clubsite, then go to My Details, then you use the Manage my Pictures button and you will see the page where you can add or remove pictures. If you haven't added any photos yet you will see a textfield where you can put a URL to your photo (an URL always starts with "http://" and ends with something like "/picturename.jpg"). The textarea below it can be used to add comment to your photo, this comment will be visible to others.
You can add more than one photo to your account, but only one at a time. All photos you have added will be visible above the location where you can add new photos. You can choose to delete or change any photo you have added. The Reset button is for when you have, for example, edited the comment of a photo and want to undo the changes. It only works before you save your changes.
