Hi Charlotte, did you mean to add the above photo to the database entry? You enlarged your first photo and started a thread for it by adding the second image. The thread is now part of the Photos Forum.

Oh, Suzanne. I *thought* I was adding it to the database. Am now thinking I will probably not attempt to do that any more as I'm a bit overwhelmed by this. Some people 'get' confused; I seem to 'stay' confused - especially when it comes to computers. Just was notified earlier today that another photo I submitted was incorrect (Huh in sandbox) - so .... am feeling like I'm not very good at the plant database thing.
Believe I'll stick to my butterfly photos from now on. That seems safer.
Thanks for pointing out the error. I apologize for the mix-up.
Charlotte

It's not a problem, really! Sooo many people make the exact same mistake. nodding Please don't stop adding photos, we love photos here!! Lovey dubby
Just make sure when you are on the database page, use the Adding Actions section on the left side where you see the following:

» Upload a photo
» Upload a URL photo
» Post a comment
» Add an event report
» File a local report

When you enlarge one of the database images and scroll down and you'll see a subject line and message box just like you see when posting a comment to a thread. Above that box is says "Post a comment about this photo". I think many people just don't see that, all they see is the 'Upload an image' button. Green Grin!

Oh no don't stop please....It is a bit overwhelming but there are great people here to help if they can and if they can't there are more great people that can. There is that photo of yours in the sandbox that can be added easily. Click on it and it enlarges and just below it in blue letters...( I just had to go look at how to do it)... it says "Associate with a plant in the database" click on that and it goes through the steps. In this case I thought it might be Plantago erecta. Just type that into the box and it will come up to select it. Proceed to step two and presto it's into the correct plant in the DB. If your still not sure of the ID it can be posted to the ID forum, but I'm not sure how to do that, and someone will confirm or most likely find the proper ID. Your photos have been wonderful. Love all the Texas natives. People just don't take notice of lots of these let alone take a photo. The butterflies and cats are great too. I like all photos with the pollinators and other critters in them. My favorite photo of yours is this one . I still can't figure out how that thread got into the sandbox? That usually happens when a thread has been going on and on and on......not when its one day old! Took me a year to figure out what the sandbox was. I thought it was for people who garden in sandy soil. Hilarious! Shrug! Best regards Leslie. edited to say:Zuzu just explained why it went into the sandbox on the original thread titled 'huh' . Once you deleted the thumbnail picture in question by cyclaminist it went to the Sandbox.

Thanks to all of you for your replies and words of encouragement @Calif_Sue. I will confess to having a bit of a "confidence crisis" yesterday. This is the first time I've ever shared my photos on any internet site, and it truly is 'a bit overwhelming' as you said @Leslieray. I'm not good at computers. (Old dog / new tricks syndrome). I just felt like I was making too many mistakes, and started to seriously wonder if this was going to work. But I've encountered a lot of nice people here, and I'm learning a lot. So no, after much consideration I've decided to keep trying. Please be patient and, no doubt I'll probably goof up again. But I'm going to keep at it.
Thank You!
