Hello,

My screen name isCustomerand I will be helping you.

Use the small blue document icon near the red SEND
button to add photos.
I just need one of the item (ideally on a white background)
and one of the bottom or back where there might be marks, signatures or labels.

Add one photo, write a word or number in the text box (pic1, pic2, etc),
hit send, then do the next. This works best doing photos one at a time.
