Hi Gary: I hope that I can help you... it is difficult to write the instructions. Did you receive an email from me yesterday or today? It may be helpful; I will also try to help. You do not upload from the club gallery. You go to the BP gallery where is says to edit your photos. There is an 8 digit number just below the image that you would like to place in the competition. Go to the blue frame and click to get inside and click on the discussion line and then start from there. Do what is necessary until you get the number counter. Please enter the number 1 and then go down until you see a small box on the right of your screen, place the 8 digit number in that box and submit. Please let me know it that works for you. It is so nice to have you join us. Merna #8891544

Hi Gary, We went here in May, I got a backstage tour of these beauties, but I have to say~ your image is so much more Fantastic! A gorgeous full framed shot! Love him! Great details and colouring but mostly loove his facial expression as he 'smiles' at you!
Smiling Big,
