       Consistent labeling makes photos more valuable to all of us, and allows  them to "stand alone" from email postings. So, for example, if you visit  the site and open "New Photos", you do not have to look through emails  to figure out what the bird is, or where and when it was photographed.  Putting this information in the comments field may also mean that it is  not seen by someone browsing the photos.

      For these reasons, we long ago established a guideline of asking members  to include the species name, location and date on all photos they  post.Of course, if the species is not known and/or is being posted for  identification help, a tentative ID or "unknown" can be used in place of  species. Labeling is straightforward:

      When uploading, you can complete the entire process at once by using the  "basic uploader":
      • In your album, click on "Add Photo"
      • Click on "Want to use our basic uploader?"
      • Click on "Choose File" to select your photo  from whatever source you are using
      • Type the species name in the "Photo Name" box
      • Type the location and date in the "Description" box
      • Click "Add  Now".
       For photos already in your album, you can edit them easily:
      • Check the  small box next to the photo you wish to edit
      • Click on "Edit"
      • Type the name in the "Photo Name" box
      • Type the location and date in the "Description" box
      • Click on "Continue".
       Please take a moment to label your photos during the upload, or to edit  you recent uploads within your albums. It will enhance their value to  the group.
