Hi everyone. I wanted to add some photos to my Album on this new site, but I realised that I had lost a lot of them when my computer crashed. Learning from this, I now back-up all my personal documents to an external hard drive!
Anyway, I decided to transfer the photos I had on the old MSN site, to this one. Here's how to do it if you'd like to try.
Go to
Scroll to your own album, left click to enlarge the photo, and then right click on each photo and click 'save image as', this will allow you to save that photo to your computer, so just choose a location on your computer where you will be able to retrieve them. Do the same for all of your pics.
Then click on 'My Controls' in the yellow strip near the top of the main Scero forum page. Under the 'Menu' list, click on 'Your albums' under the 'Invision Gallery'.
Click on 'create album' and fill in the Topic title, and Topic description, and tick the 'public' box. Then click 'create album'. On the next page, under 'controls' on your album manager, change 'select an operation' to 'upload image' (or 'bulk upload' if you have a few pics). Simply click on 'browse' to choose the photo you want at the location on your computer, where you previously saved them. Then scroll down to 'post image' or 'post multiple files' depending on the quantity. On the single photo option, you may add a caption and description to your image.
Voila! Hope you managed to follow that!
Any problems, just ask and I will try to help.
If you decide to download some new photos from your computer, please remember to keep the size of each photo to a minimum.
Take Care,

Thank you, Steve! You made great directions for transferring photos from MSN to Sclero Forums.

I hope people grab their photos from there, while the gettin' is still good!

Hi everyone,

I went to the gallery to look at photos, and realized that some of the photos don't enlarge (they are just copies of the thumbnail sketches from the old board). I think that is because there is a step missing from the instructions on how to copy your photos over. To get the full picture which will enlarge on Forums you have to first open the thumbnail picture so it is enlarged, THEN right click and "save image as" to a folder in your computer. It takes longer but I think it's worth it as you will have the larger photos for people to look at here.

Warm wishes to all,

#5 Sweet

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ya, that makes sense, I was wondering why some of them were so tiny. I tried to get out the reading glasses, but that didn't help either :blink: :D
