Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Hi Rhonda...I'll try my best to explain.
Checking for e-mails: On the top RIGHT of your home page (My Place) there's a box with your name, sign out, IN-BOX (mail), alerts, friends, etc. Just click on your in-box and you'll see if you have mail.
Adding photos: On the LEFT of your home page there's a list...blog posts, discussions, events, groups, PHOTOS, etc. Click on photos and it'll take you to a page that has a box with +add (up by your name on the RIGHT side). Click on that and another page will come up with a camera in the center. Click on that and it should open a new box with your own computer info. I have VISTA, so I have to click on "my photos", then I look for whatever I want to add and click on it. It will automatically transfer it back to the camera page with instructions. It's hard to explain because I don't know what operating system you're using and it just depends on how your computer box shows up. I tried my best to explain and hope it makes some sense...maybe someone else can explain it better. Just try it out and see what happens. You can always delete a picture and you can't mess up your page or anything. If you get lost just go back to "My Place". Anyway, good luck!
