Item Photos

Multiple items in one photo are fine. Multiple files can be included on the Photo 1 field, up to 30 files max. To do this, Ctrl-click multiple files and drag them ALL onto the field at one time. Dragging and dropping some and then trying to add more will replace what's there instead of add to it. If you prefer to add your photos one by one you may do so (up to 5) using the Photo 1 through Photo 5 fields below.

PLEASE NOTE: Each of your submitted files MUST have a unique name ("File1", "File2", etc.) or our transfer system will only take the last one uploaded.
