Photo's are simple ;-)
Go to the Gallery, click on "upload" and then follow the page. Browse will allow you to browse and find the folder you have the photo stored in.
Then fill int he panels, with what section you want to put the photo in, fill in the description of it. Fill in a key word or two. Then your user name in that related filed. And if you wat the photo in your favorites which would be yes.
Compleatly forget about the bulk option below all that. It does not need to be used or filled out. Then click on upload and wait. Don't do anything. When the uplaod is finished, your picture will then load infront of your eyes and it's all done.
Give me or any staff a yell if you still hav trouble. We are very patient and won't roll our eyes at you. :-)

Wecome Alchemist.
Don't know what Hauraki Gulf you're talking about. Seen it today? Very lively. Looks like Wellytown on a nice day
