How do I upload or delete a postcard image from the postcards wall?

Postcrossers can upload photos of the postcards they've received, or photos of the postcards they're currently sending — but only while they're still traveling.

To upload a postcard image to your gallery, follow these steps:

  1. First, scan or take a photo of the image side of the postcard (not the one with message/address!)
  2. For a postcard you have received, go to your received postcards. If you wish to pre-upload the image of a postcard you are sending (ie: that is still traveling), go to your traveling postcards instead.
  3. Find the row that has the Postcard ID for the image you would like to upload. Use the green '+' icon found in the last column of that row.
  4. Select the image you want to upload. For a postcard you have received, you can also enter an optional description text.
  5. Upload it and that's it!

Lastly, if you wish to delete a postcard image that you have uploaded, go to that postcard's page by selecting it from your received or sent postcards. Right below the postcard image there is a button to delete that postcard image.
