I'm still learning about your website and have a procedural question. If I post a photo to a specific plant how do I then get it to my plant list and if I post it to my plant list first how do I then get it to the specific plant? Once I added it to both places but then it showed up with two of the same photo.

Sherri -- Hi! From what you asked, I will assume you know how to add a picture to the database. After you load the picture, you are asked statements/questions. The first is to upload another picture. The second statement/question is to view the cultivar. Pick the second question scroll back down to where you upload the picture. The categories are adding actions, then editing actions, then plant list. Choose add to your list. If it is on your list it says in your list.

You can add a plant to your list without a picture on your profile page. Pick your plant list. The second box shows add a plant and follow the prompts.

Your pictures of plants can be only in your profile, or on the data base, but now all you enter into the database will show in your profile. So yes, I have had them duplicate. You can not delete the database one. So in your plant list find the plant pick it's pencil and find the duplicate photo. There is a little trash can in the upper left hand corner. Pick it and follow prompts.

If you post to the database they go through faster and you can write comments. But if you want to post from your list then open it in your binoculars view. At the bottom of the picture in the center there is a blue icon looks like a barrel? Click it and it will ask you which plant it belongs to, just answer the prompts. Be aware that it takes the picture awhile to show up doing it this way. It needs approval.

Hopefully this is what you needed!
May you be blessed with a wonderful remainder of the year!

Thanks for your response, Sharon. I'm going to need to study this for awhile before it sinks in. Confused

I see you have already been adding plants to your list, and that you have two separate categories so I am not really sure what you are asking.
The first image you add to the database entry will now show up in your list.

@Calif_Sue I think the problem was a duplicate picture in Sherri's binoculars. If you add a picture to your profile (pencil) first. Then you go and add that same picture to the database via the database. (Creates a binocular picture in your profile,too) The end result will be that your binocular view will show two of the same image. One from your personal photos and one from the database.

If you look at SherriRaye's Delphinium in her plant list there are two of the same picture in the binocular view. One from the pencil and one from the database. The pencil can be edited. It happens because of what I stated in the previous paragraph.

Anyway that is what I took as part of the problem.

May you be blessed with a wonderful week!

Ahh, for Noid, I add them to the generic entry, for instance, an unknown iris, I add to the generic parent iris entry, like what Sherri did for that delphinium.
So rereading the original question, if you add your photo to the generic delphinium entry, then click the Add this plant to your list' and check off if you want it placed in a specific category and submit. Now it's in your inventory list.
Now if you first add a plant and photo to your list without attaching it to a database entry, you can upload that photo directly to a database entry by enlarging it and clicking on the blue barrel looking icon at the bottom of the image which brings up a box called "Proposing the association of a photo to a plant", type in plant and follow the steps to submit. But that would now create the double image when you click on the binoculars, no biggie really because the double image does not show when just looking at the entire list.
