Photos are can be stored on a PicasaWeb Album and displayed on the BikeManawatu Website.

To upload photos to one of these albums, we recommend using the free Picasa tool from Google http://picasa.google.com/

2) Login to a Picasaweb account from within Picasa (top right corner)

5) Choose the correct album settings

i) Choose an existing album or create a new one

ii) Change the size to “Recommended (1600)” if it isn’t already the default, as this is usually plenty for the website.  This also speeds up your upload.

iii) Make sure the visability is “Public on the web”
