How can I include images - photos in my Ad?

To include images - photos in your Ad:

  1. On the Post Ad or Edit Ad page you should see a green button with "upload photos" label (right below the description box). You can also use our handy new tool to drag and drop photos from your computer directly to your ad.

  2. Click the "upload photos" button.

  3. Select a picture file from your computer's hard disk and click "OK". The picture will then be uploaded and attached to your Ad.

You can add up to 12 pictures (following the same process). Remember a picture is worth a thousand words, so including one or more with your Ad will increase your chance of getting twice the number of replies.

If you have problems uploading pictures, please try the following:

How can I check if the picture size is less than 4MB(=4,000kb)?

If more than 4MB, find an image resizer and reduce the size. Free online image resizer examples are:

It may take a few minutes to upload the picture so please be patient.

  • Reduce the size of the pictures to be less than 4MB each with max dimension 6000x4000

    1. Go to the folder where the image is stored

    2. Click view > details - it gives you information about image size and file type
      OR Right click the image -> properties

  • Ensure the pictures are in GIF, JPEG or BMP format

  • Turn off any anti-virus or firewall software

  • Make sure you're using the latest version of your web browser
