GALLERIES AND IMAGES
D: How can I upload photos in the galleries?
You can find an in-depth tutorial in this page: How to upload photos in the JuzaPhoto galleries
D: How can I sort the photos how I prefer?
To sort the photos, you have to use the text field on the left of every thumbnail in the "Upload/Edito Photos" page. Write a number near every photo; the first photo will become the cover of the gallery, too.
D: I can't create a 1200px photo that weights less than 400kb: what can I do?
With Photoshop, instead of using "Save As", when you prepare a photo for web you must use "Save for web" with quality 70/100. You can find a detailed tutorial in the article Processing And Saving The Photos For Web
D: Can I replace a photo without losing the comments?
It is not possible; the only way to replace a photo is to delete it and to upload the newer version.
D: What does it happens when reach the limit of 420 photos?
It is recommended to delete the worst photos and to replace them with better or more recent photos: this way you won't increase the number of photos but you will improve quality! Other than that, you can increase your space up to 2100 photos by upgrading to a supporter account.
D: How does "Most Polular" photos work?
The "Most Popular" section of every gallery shows the photos with the highest number of "Like". It is a more reliable way to measure the popularity of the photo than the number of comments.
D: How does "Photos of the Week" work?
Every week the administrator choose five photos between all the photos published in the galleries, without time limits. They are called "Photo of the Week" because they are chosen every week, but the choice is not limited between the photos of the previous week. The photos are chosen between all the galleries.
D: Why my photos don't appear in AREA or TOOLS?
You can upload photos directly in these sections. The ARENA shows all the topics and the photos from the members of international (English language) forum in a sigle page, ordered by last comment. The TOOLS shows the photos that receive and in-depth comment.
D: Why my photos don't appear between most popular or most commented photos?
By default, these sections shows only the photos upload during the previous month. You can change the time limit to previous week, previous years or always. If your photo has received a big number or likes or comments, you will see it when you set the time limit on "always", even if your photo has been posted a lot of time ago.
PHOTOS IN CAPTIVITY, NESTS AND PLACES
D: Is is allowed to post photos taken in captivity?
! It just have to declare that the photo has been taken in captivity.
D: ...what should I do if a photo seems to be taken in captivity, but the author as not declared it as such?
If you are interested, you can politely ask to the author; of course you must avoid aggressive or unpolite tones.
D: Is it allowed to post photos of nests?
Yes; of course these subjects must be photographed with great care to avoid disturbing the animal (as for all nature subjects).
D: Is it mandatory to declare the location of a photo?
No, you are free to post info about location or to keep it secret. Of course people may ask info about locations, but the author is not obliged to reply.
D: What is the Portfolio? How does it work?
The portfolio is a special gallery where you can show your best photos. To add photos in Porfolio, first you have to upload them in your galleries, then click on the button [Show in Porfolio] under the image that you want to add. The photo will appear both in the gallery and in your portfolio.
D: Why the porfolio doesn't have a comment counter?
If a photo of your portfolio receive a comment, it will increase the counter of the gallery where you have uploaded the photo.
D: Is it possible to edit a message that has been sent?
No. The private messages work exactly like e-mails: once sent, you can't change or delete them. You can delete your copy of the message from the "Sent Messages" folder, but the recipient copy won't be deleted.
D: What does it happen when I delete a message?
As for e-mails, when you delete a private message you delete your copy; the recipien won't lose his copy. Every reply to a private message shown in the history box embededd into every message. All messages that you write are saved in the "Sent Messages" folder; if you don't want to keep this copy you have to delete it manually. Once deleted, a message can not be recovered.
D: Is is possible to change the username?
Yes, you can change your username once, by asking to the administrator (Juza). It is recommended to use your real name as username, even though of course it is not mandatory.
D: My username looks different from the username that I had chosen at registration, e.g. "pAuL" has become "Paul", why?
All usernames are automatically formatted; the first letter of ever word is always uppercase, the other letters lowercase. It is not possible to change this.
PROBLEMS WITH PASSWORD OR LOGIN

Be sure to digic correctly username and password, in particular pay attention in case of accents or spaces. If you still have problems, ask for a new password

on your photos; JuzaPhoto won't use it in any way. If you want to remove a photo, you can do it in every moment.
D: How can I protect my images for unhautorized usages?
JuzaPhoto don't use download blockers because they don't help to protect the images: a simple printscreen can "steal" every photo from web. I recommend to use TinEye
to find website that have used your photos without permission.
