a later time. After you have saved certain photos you can then download

To browse the categories in PhotoPost select a category from
the main photopost screen. To browse sub-categories
click on a main category and then select the sub-category.

PhotoPost. To find out how to add categories and sub-categories from the

along with the other photopost users on the site, to post a comment in
regard to the picture that is being discussed. It works very much like
a forum thread only for discussing the photos that have been posted.
The "Add your comments" box is found at the bottom
of every photo page if you are logged in to photopost. If it is not being
displayed that it is because you are not logged in or have not created
an account. Once you are logged in to photopost, enter your comment in
the text field and click the "submit" button. You will then
see the comment you entered displayed below the photo that you were posting
your comment to. As seen in the example below:
a comment after it has been posted click the " Edit" link
and edit the text in the text field and then click the "Submit
Edit" button to update the comment text.
delete a comment after it has been posted click the " Edit"
link then check the "Delete Post? Only check this box if you want
to completely delete this post:" check box. After you do this,
click the "Submit Edit" and your comment will be removed.
