I forgot to upload a picture of the card

Hello! :slight_smile:
I’m a new member here. I sent my first card few days ago, but I didn’t download the picture of that card and I don’t have a same one now ( our stores with cards closed for lockdown ).
Is it a big mistake? What have I do in this situation?
Thank you.


Its not a huge problem
Just ask the receiver to upload a picture of the card after he receives it.
Both the sender and receiver can upload a picture


Thank you very much for your answer! :slight_smile:
P.S. It is so exciting: firs card, first mistake, first help.))


Happy to help
And i hope you have more amazing adventures on postcrossing


Hey, northern neighbor! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

If it makes you feel any better, I forget to upload a picture of my outgoing card 40-60% of the time. :joy: I get so excited to put my cards in the mail that it slips my mind.

@Shashidar is much wiser than I am and once again correct: it isn’t a crime. It’s a nice courtesy to do, but you’re not failing in any way if you don’t. :heart:


Welcome, Toma2020! Hope you have a great time here! :slight_smile:


To add to what others have said, there is no obligation for either sender or receiver to upload the picture - some people do and others don’t.

Ultimately, the receiver “owns” the card once it is received and has the final choice of whether they want a photo uploaded.


Welcome! It is not a mistake. You are not forced to upload pictures of the cards.


If the reciever hasn’t registered the card yet, you can still upload it before it gets registered. However after the card gets registered, then the receiver has to upload it.

Just send a private message and ask the receiver to upload it. Let them know it is your first card and you would like to have the picture uploaded.


If you really want to upload the card while it’s still traveling but you don’t have the picture, you can check Canada postcard gallery. Maybe you will find the same card you are sending. You can ask permission from the sender of the card to use it on your wall.


Welcome to Postcrossing! I actually don’t upload a picture of the ones I send out :sweat_smile:


If you would like to do that please do it after your card is registered.

Or you do it like I do it if I forget to scan a card.

I upload this message:


Thanks for your support! :slight_smile: BTW, my first card is going to USA ! :v::grin:
