I get a kick out of everyones photos (...and champagne). How can I post a few photos of my own? What's the process for submitting them? My Tikis are getting restless.

Aloha Hello Tiki,
This is taken straight from the help/faq link above. You can practice in the test message forum.
Have fun, look forward to seeing some of your shots:
Tiki Central does not provide a way to upload images, but you can embed images from other places on the web. So, in order to upload images, you'll need to use another server. Most Tiki Central members use Shutterfly. Here are instructions on how to use Shutterfly to upload and embed pictures in Tiki Central messages. (courtesy of Alnshely).
Step one: Upload your image
Go to Shutterfly.com. This is a free service. They are a good online photo service. One of our Moderators, Mig, works there. It is easy to download photos. here's how:
1. Setup an account. It's easy they only want your Email address.
2. Upload photos. Shutterfly's step-by-step will show you how.
3. Once your pics are posted they will all have a unique web address.
The pictures you see on TC are a direct link to that web address
Step two. Finding and copying the web address
1. View your picture on Shutterfly (or whatever website the picture is uploaded to).
2. Use your mouse and "right click" your pic.
3. A menu will open. Choose properties (left click).
4. A properties box will open. There will be a web address (a URL, starting "with http://") to that specific pic.
5. Right-click on the URL and choose "Select all", or triple-click it.
6. Right-click on the selected URL and choose "Copy".
Step three. Embedding
To embed the graphic within your message, just paste the URL of the graphic image as shown and include the BBcode around it, like in the following example (BBCode is in red).
In the example above, the BBCode automatically makes the graphic visible in your message. Note: the "http://" part of the URL is REQUIRED for the [img] code.
