Note: These photos will not count towards your photo upload "count", these photos are for you to use in your personal pages (articles and blogs) and can only be viewed either as direct links or within specific sub sections of mindat.org. They can also be found by picking the correct classification in the photo search. Use this only for photos that do not fit into other categories. Locality is optional for this kind of photograph.
If the locality is not filled in (it will be if you add the photo from the locality display page), you can enter either the full name, a partial name or the locality number. Hitting the "Check" button will allow you to choose the correct location. You can enter just a portion of the locality string here, but if you type in a partial locality where there are too many possible locations, the program will not accept this.
Enter a short title (eg. 'This is me')
