Yes, you can store images on our site; however, due to various optimizations, the size of the stored image may differ from the original.
Which internet browsers does TrekinU support?

Does TrekinU require special software?
TrekinU uses the Adobe Flash plug-in which comes pre-installed on most computers. For fast image uploading, we strongly recommend the installation of the TrekinU Image Uploader. Internet Explorer users should install TrekinU’s ActiveX control, and Firefox users should install TrekinU’s Java control. For those that prefer not to install the Image Uploader, TrekinU provides a Flash application that can be used to upload files and images.

How do I share my treks with my friends and family?
The simplest way to share treks is by using the Share button, located just below the Trek Player on the right hand side of the page. In the “Share with Friend” popup box, you may enter the email address of anyone with whom you wish to share a trek. There is also an option to add a personal message. You may use TrekinU’s default subject header, or edit it with any subject of your choice. TrekinU does not store or make use of any email addresses that you enter. Another way to share treks is to enter the URL into your own email application. The URL can be copied from address field of your browser, or from the text box containing the URL at the end of the trek presentation.

The code from the Embed Code text box that appears at the end of every trek presentation can be copied and embedded into your site’s HTML code.
