DigameXtra user tip! How to get around the “3 pics max per For Sale ad” submission rule!

Want to include more photos than the submission rules allow? Use collages to post more pics per post. You can combine several of your pics into a single collage pic by using this free (you need to provide email) online tool. So by using this tool, your 3 pics submitted may actually be many more pics. See this example where I put four pics into a single photo. Following this example you could post 12 pics total but only send in 3 pics. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

This is a single photo created from 4 separate photos. Try it!
