New feature: Upload photos by email

If you have an editor's account, you can now upload photos or forum comments by email.

First, login to the website and go to the Settings page. Make a note of the email address given under "Personalized email address for submissions." When you send messages to that address, the system will automatically process them and link them to your account so that you get proper credit.

Use the email's subject line to specify where you want the attached photos to appear. See the Help page for full details.

The main advantage is being able to upload photos or post comments from your smartphone in the field. If, for example, you discover a "bonus" bridge, you can quickly post a forum comment with a snapshot, even while you're standing on it (assuming you can get a signal).

Note that this is an experimental feature, so let me know how it works (or doesn't work).

It will take the message, but the photos are not uploading properly.
