File Attachments

You may attach up to ten files to your observation. These can be photos, snow profiles, or whatever. Attachments must be less than 10mb, and even smaller is better.

Note: Don't start or end your filename with a space, period, hyphen, or underline. Keep your filenames to a reasonable length and be sure they are under 31 characters. Most operating systems are case sensitive; always use lowercase alphabetic characters. Avoid using common symbols, spaces and underscores; use a hyphen instead.
