You may have noticed a new icon when recipes don’t have a photo. You see this:
Adding photos to recipes just got a whole lot easier now that you can add photos directly from your phone to recipes. With all these exciting new features, we are having a monthly ‘Faceless
Recipe Contest’. We want you to show us the products of all your hard work in the kitchen by posting photos to all those great recipes that remain ‘faceless’.
Here are the rules:
Go to the collection of recipes called Faceless
Prepare one of the recipes, snap a picture, and be the first to post a photo
Post a link to the recipe in the comment field of this blog post
Whoever has the most pictures at the end of each month wins! If there is a tie, we’ll draw a name
The winner will receive a 1 year Pro
How to upload a photo from your phone:
Navigate to http://m.allrecipes.com
and log into your account. Locate the recipe you want. Under the photo, press the ‘Snap’ button and decide if you wish to take a photo or upload a photo you've already taken.
Once you have added your photo, you will see confirmation of the upload below the ‘Snap’ button. That's it! Once your photo has been approved
it will be added to this recipe's photo collection.
How to upload a photo from your computer:
Before you begin, make sure the photo you want to upload is already on your computer’s hard drive.
When viewing a recipe page, click ‘Add a photo’ on the faceless photo. From there, you'll be able to submit your own photo of the completed
recipe by clicking on ‘add a photo’. You can also click ‘Add a photo’ next to ‘Rate this recipe’.
Select Choose File to find the photo on your computer. Once you find the photo, select Continue to upload the photo.
Once your photo has been uploaded, you may crop the photo by selecting the area you would like to save using the tools in the cropping
feature. Once you have uploaded your photo and are happy with it, select Save and Add.
Please note that the photo:
Must be in the format of either a jpg/jpeg, gif, or png
Must not exceed 4 MB
Must be no smaller than 960 pixels x 960 pixels
Ready, set, snap a photo!
