How do I use winrar?

  1. Feb 11, 2013 #1
    How do I upload a pack of several hundred photos to a website in the form of a .zip archive?

    winrar and winzip are the most confusing and frustrating tools I've ever used.

    I have no idea how to use them.

    The website only accepts .zip archives and not .rar archives.

    I just highlight the files I want added and right click and select "add to archive" from there you can select to compress as .zip

    Ahhhh..... I thought "add to archive" was to add photos to an pre-existing winrar archive. I didn't know this is the option you clicked to create a new winrar archive.

    This tool is frustratingly confusing nonetheless...
