How to use the Camera in your tool box to take a picture and post it in the forum

1. Go to your farm and show EVERYTHING in your game settings that you need us to see. This means you have to put a check mark to the options you want for "Show ... " in your game Preferences (little wrench top right of your game screen) before taking your photo. If you need to show everything select ALL the "Show...." options. Then click the green check mark to save the setting.
  • If you have just finished designing, reload your game in case anything was hidden by accident. Check your farm and makes sure everything is showing correctly especially animals.
  • Click on your yellow tool box, then click on the camera icon.

2. You must do the following items BEFORE you click "Next". The options are indicated with red arrows in the picture below.
  • At the top of the window select "Farm" to show the whole farm OR "Window", to show just a part of the farm.
  • Then choose SMALL size, never Medium or Large as they are too big for the forum.
  • You can also select the Background, Green or White.
  • After that, just click on "Next".

When you click on Next the picture is automatically posted to your Facebook Timeline.

3. Go to your Facebook Profile, Timeline, and look for your photo.

4. IMPORTANT: Check the privacy of the photo! It must be set to "Public" or we will not be able to see it on the forum. To check the privacy, look above the photo, under your name is a date or time. To the right of that date/time is an icon.
It should be a round world, if it looks like an outline of a profile or a padlock, then it is not set to "Public" and you must change it.

To change it click on the icon and then click on "Public".

5. You then need to click on the photo you would like to post to the forum to view the larger image of it.

6. Once you've done that, "Right-click" your mouse on the photo and choose:
  • For Google Chrome: "Copy image address"
  • For Firefox: “Copy image location”
  • For Internet Explorer: “Copy”
  • For Opera: “Copy image address”
  • For Safari: “Copy image address”
  • For Edge: "Save Image As"

7. Come back to the forum thread you want to post in.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see the Quick Reply box
  • Then click on the "Insert Image" icon idicated in the picture with a red the top of your post, (yellow square with grayish mountains or hills on it).
  • A small box will open.
    • DELETE the "http://" that is shown in there.
    • THEN "Right click" your mouse in the box and select "Paste".
  • Click OK. When you have done that if you need to add information to the post click your mouse after
    the end of IMG] then click enter on your keyboard and type your message.

8. If you would like to view how your picture and post will appear before you post it, within your post select the "Go Advanced" or "Preview Post" option included in the bottom of your post.

10. When you are happy with how your post looks, click "Submit Reply" or "Post Quick Reply".
