Hi my name is Glenda,
Thank you for choosing us for your Appraisal needs.

.


It is very important to be able to see what the customer has in order to give a correct informed value!


Please use the option best for you !


.

 

Here are instructions for sending images several ways, you can choose which one best fits you , be sure it is uploaded to your computer,

.
in jpeg form, no larger then 1 mb.

.


When you upload the picture you will be able to see it in this message box before you send it to me.
.

This is very easy if you take it step by step!
1.
THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT THE PAPER CLIP OR TREE AT TOP OF MESSAGE AREA LOOKS LIKE THAT YOU NEED TO CLICK ON TO UPLOAD A PICTURE.


.
then click on browse, another box will open up,

.

then click on browse in that box,

.

this will take you to your computer, you will see Chose File Upload, from here click on where your pictures are located. Then click on your picture, then click open,

this will put the image name in the space, then click open.

.

then you are back to the first box, click on insert !

.

The picture will show up in the message area before you send it to me, you should be able to see it. If you do not see it, then the upload did not work you need to try it again, pictures have to be in jpg form on your computer in order for it to work.
.
.
.
Or you may use this method:
.
Go to www.imgur.com
.
click on Computer
.
Select the picture file from the box that pops up.
.
Hit open.
.
Click on Start Upload
.
And then copy the link they give you (it will look similar to this http://www.imgur.com/xxxx) and paste it here.

This a completely free photo hosting site, it does not cost one thing to use it.

http://www.photobucket.com/ it is very easy to use, you log in, create an account , make a user name, do not use an email address as user name , then upload your pictures, making them public, then come give me your user name, I have an account and can log into them and see them...

.

Or:Send them like this: In an Email! This can take awhile depending on how busy they are at Just answer, they do forward them to me.
.
.
Send the picture to , [email protected] , in the subject line put " Pictures for Glenda B in Antiques".

Thank you for letting me know Linda, I really appreciate it. If you happen to get a survey in email, please look kindly on me. They send them out about the site and the appraiser, once we respond to a customer.

 

Thank you, if you need anything else feel free asking for me I appreciate it.

Have a great day

I cannot go forward with this query, and I need to cancel my membership. I have been charged £22 which I agreed but have also been charged £32. I did not ask for membership. Please refund at least the £32.

I am not an employee of Just Answer, I am an appraiser who comes to the site to answer questions that customers post on the site, you will need to go to justanswer.com, click on help at the bottom, this takes you to customer service for that site, they will help you.
