In this tutorial you will learn how to add a Photo Essay page.

Photo Essay pages are very useful for obtaining both text and image responses. An example of this is a profile photo and a short description of the user. This page allows a user to upload a picture. The user has the option to take a new photo or upload an existing photo. This page always contains a text field, which allows text to be added next to a photo. It’s not mandatory to always include text.
