Koinup provides you with a spot for photos about games and virtual worlds. You should NOT post real-life pictures to Koinup; they will be deleted by an administrator.


After you set up an account, you can embed code from every photo into a Web page, wiki, or blog.


Must-dos: TITLE it, TAG it, then share it.


  • JPG format photos are best. They are small and upload easily
  • Give every photo a title so visually impaired readers can recognize the image with screen-reading software
  • Tag photos with eng103 and other one-word tags so searchers can find them easily.




I uploaded this photo to Koinup; it is a random shot I took while doing a bit of exploring:


Well, what next?


To upload to Koinup, don't forget:


  • Select the correct "world" for your project (SL, Open Sim, or "other" for a shot from Metaplace if you explore it later)
  • Find the photo on your hard drive and upload
  • Tag it. This one got my tag "iggy" since it's not about our class or a particular subject. My driving ones usually get "roadtrip" too. Tags help viewers find and sort through the millions of images at a photo site.  The enable groups collaborating to mark their work for searches, too
  • Add it to our Course Group in Koinup.
