Patch 101: Upload Photos and Videos to Patch

Here at Patch we want to be a part of the community, but we can't be everywhere at once.

That's where you come in. We need your help. Share your photos and videos from around town right here on Patch.

Whether it's a fall photo of your own backyard or a trip to the mountains, a video clip from a school play, or something more newsworthy like a photo of a car accident or a video clip from a school board meeting, we would love for you to share it with the Patch community.


To share, select "Pics & Clips" from the main navigation bar.

Once on the new page, there is a button to "Upload Photos and Videos." (Make sure you are already logged in to the site.)

A window will open for you to browse your computer for photos and videos.

Once you find the ones you want to upload, select "choose."

A box will appear to show you the progress of the upload.

Once the image is uploaded, click on the thumbnail to add a caption. This tells viewers about who is in the photo or what is happening in the video and where it was taken. The more information you include the better.

Contributing is easy and we can't wait to see your photos!
