thomasjones2266 said:well, there were two reasons I was uploading the photos one was the acorns and the other I felt it would be a good storage place for my photos. I won't be uploading any more photos. I did not understand all of your rules and requirements so please forgive the confusion and anyone that I upset.
You might want to store your photos on an external hard drive, or on a cloud service. There're also sources like Flickr https://www.flickr.com/
which is a type of cloud service I guess. But as far as I understand, the NGA is not a photo-storage service. You will find lots of information here to help you ID plants and make decisions about your own garden, and photos are a large part of that ability. I use the database quite often for that and am happy if I can contribute a photo that might help someone else in the future.
I know this post is related to the NARR because you originally were looking to earn acorns, but did you know that there's a special forum for asking questions? It's called (I don't know why) the Ask A Question Forum! https://garden.org/apps/ask/
It's perfect for questions exactly like this one. Enjoy!
