VIDEO: How to Upload Photos to Patch Using Your Smartphone

This video tutorial will show users how to upload photos using their iPhone or Android smart phones using our free Patch app.

The holidays are often a time for feasts, family gatherings, maybe a little egg nog. Sometimes, the holidays are a great success — the turkey comes out great and the newborn looks adorable in her reindeer costume.

Other times, we aren't so lucky and the turkey gets burnt or get stuck on an unkle's head. Too much egg nog could do that to you. 

Whichever way it goes, Patch would love to see your favorite holiday memories submitted to our Pics and Clips section or a blog. But to do that, you shoud first see how easy it is to post photos to Patch using your phone.

Contributing photos to your local Patch sites is fun, easy and best of all, gives you the power to contribute your awesome photos to the site.

This video tutorial will show you how to upload a photo using the Patch app for the iPhone (our Android app is called Patch Places)

If you have an iPhone or an Android smart phone, you can download our free Patch app by clicking here for iPhone or here for Patch Places for Android phones.

After downloading the app, you can carry your hometown Patch anywhere you go and use the app to take and upload photos directly to any story, directory listing, announcement or contest that's on your local Patch.

It all starts by downloading the free app and signing up for a free account. Do not forget to sign up for our newsletter to receive daily editions of your local Patch directly to your e-mail inbox.

The video tutorial will work for any Patch site. To find your local Patch, go to the Dashboard of the Patch App, touch or click on the button that says 'Find a Patch' and find the site that covers your community.

The tutorial uses a brand new photo, but the app allows you to upload photos stored on your phone.
