I am struggling to upload pictures for my advert
Each image must be no more than 4MB in size. The easiest way of ensuring you can upload pictures is to change the image size on your camera BEFORE you take the pictures. Most digital cameras have a picture setting for online images which is smaller than 0.5mb per image. Select this setting and then take the pictures you wish to use in your advert. Download them to the computer you will use for placing your advert. You will then be able to select them when you are placing an Advert. If you have larger-sized images you will need to resize them on your computer (this can be done in most image storing programs before attempting to upload them to your advert.
