How to Post Multiple Photos on Craigslist

By Jay Leon

When posting an ad to a classifieds website, it is a good idea to add photos whenever possible. Photos give those who view your ad a better idea of what you are offering or seeking. Craigslist lets you attach up to four pictures from your computer to a single posting. If you need to add more, upload your pictures online and use the HTML codes that are allowed on Craigslist.
