I just clicked on the share a recipe box the other day to see how you have it set up. Now that I have dictation software, posting is much easier for me.... so I thought I might start adding recipes.
The last few months, since seeing your tutorials, I have been taking photos when I bake. I don't see a place to add photos to recipes?
I guess they could be added in the body of the recipe the same way we would add more than one photo to a post....

After you have submitted the recipe, choose to view it. There will be a choice to add a photo. It takes a long time to load because it resizes the photo.
When downloading pictures from your camera to your Pictures file, first make a folder with the name of the recipe. Download all your pictures to that folder.

I usually take some picture software and resize my photos to around 600 X 600 pixels because they load faster. And I might later want to use them again and then it will be handier for me. Also, as I resize them, I rename them in the order of preparing the recipe:
1-Assemble ingredients
2-Whip the eggs until fluffy
3-
It makes it easier to upload them if they are in order.

I'll look forward to your first recipe and you can always Cmail me with any questions. It's like anything . . . the more you do it the easier it gets. I had to learn BB code . . html code . . when we started this and now I know it by heart. Bolding something . . I don't even think about it . . it's automatic from my head to the keys on the keyboard. I dreaded it in the beginning and kept a sheet by my keyboard to keep me straight. I've since thrown it away.

Ok, thanks! I always downsize photos to 600 pixels wide in Photoshop before uploading.

To prep the photos ahead of time makes it much more enjoyable to input them. I was tapping my foot before I started doing it that way.

Thanks for posting the two articles. I think more cooks will visit the site a lot more often now. I have already entered one recipe but had not checked out the database. I learned about filtering choices and about how to print a recipe.

I would like to see an article about kitchen gadgets that make preparation easier.

Welcome, Louise!

The sad thing is I am not notified when a recipe is inputed unless you post a picture with it.

The alternative is a choice of once a recipe has been entered, a feature that puts it on hold for my approval and I don't want to do that to anybody. That would frustrate me as many times, I put a recipe in and on re-reading it, I find errors. *Blush*

But when you post a recipe in the database, if you would start a thread in Our Kitchen, then we would see it, go read it and discuss it.

Cmail me or post here if you have questions.

I split the thread into it's own for discussing downsizing photos. It's here:
