Not sure what you're asking. To add an image to the lily database, you search for the correct entry and then add the image from the menu on the left side of that entry.
FYI: The Landscape feature is for tagging multiple plants within a landscape so that others know what they look like and those tags are then linked up to the corresponding database entry. Photos of individual plants, like a lily, should only be added to the database entry.

on the landscape page when you first go to it has an add photo button. From your message I gather you can not do that with the lily page

Hi Tom,

That's correct. The landscape photos are intended to have multiple plants tagged, whereas plant database photos are intended to be attached to a single entry in the database. So if you have a photo to add, you will need to find the plant for it in the database, or propose that the plant be added if it is missing:

There are also genus-level entries if you don't know the specific cultivar, but do know the genus. In the case of Lilies, that is the Lilium entry:

Lilies (Lilium)

I hope that helps answer your question. Please let us know if you have any further questions! Smiling
