New Photos Gallery !
on: January 06, 2018, 04:47:21 PM
New Photos Gallery

The forum now has a brand new image hosting and Photos Gallery.    :152:



The new Gallery far exceeds the older gallery in features and is much more user friendly. Upload limit per image is now a mighty 5MB.

It is fast and secure, with images backup up instantly to secure cloud servers.

Images are delivered by CDN edge servers around the world so they also load pretty quickly wherever you are viewing them from.

Links are also automatically generated for use on the forum.


Not just a Gallery....

The new Photos Gallery is not just a "gallery", it also doubles as an image hosting solution.

It far exceeds the old gallery, has many new features, and is quick and secure. The facility is for members only, you can store your pics and if required embed them easily into forum posts.

The new Photos Gallery does require you to create a seperate account but it's quick and easy to sign up.


Upload images from your posts

There's now an additional "Upload Image" button that's available when you compose your post.

It allows you to upload an image to your Gallery account and once uploaded you are instantly brought back to your post and the image link is automatically embedded.

You can upload one image or multiple images at the same time and all the links are automatically inserted into your post.

No more faffing around with links etc...  :152:


FAQ:   How to Use the Image Upload Button

or for details on normal uploads:

FAQ:   How to Upload Images to the Photos Gallery


Members who used the previous Gallery

Images from the old Gallery have been migrated to the new one.

If you had a Gallery album in the old gallery then you have already been setup with a new Gallery profile.

Note:  We'll be sending your login details out soon.

Also, any images embedded into posts have had their links updated so they still appear.


Photobucket Image Recovery

The forum had quite a few Photobucket images that were no longer visible. We've now recovered a substantial number of those images and fixed the links. Essentially those images now run from our CDN.

There were a few that we could not recover because owners had deleted them, nothing we can do about them I'm afraid, they are gone forever.

There's still quite a few remaining but we'll endevour to recover as many as possible.


A note on Attachments

Please note that for large images members should now use the new Gallery.

Eventually "attachments" will be confined to "non-image" files so all members who wish to post images are advised to use the new Gallery.

That's brilliant,  thanks to all involved with the updates, its well worth the effort

As a member of a number of other forums one of the major gripes is re sizing images and posting them, obviously I haven't tried our new facility yet but it looks GOOD    :37:   :152:

Did you post it ? Or have you uploaded anything yet ?

If not it might have been me. I was logged into your photos account yesterday when I set it up and I have a feeling I didn't log out (I was doing all the accounts). When I uploaded something today I think that one went into your album as I was still logged in on a different browser but I wasn't sure. (Multiple browsers open at once  :138: ). It did confuse me at the time and I wondered where it went ?? Thought I just missed that one.

I've uploaded over 1800 images in past few days so now getting lol  :lostit:

Yep, that's my bike and my handy work in taking the picture  :2:   


EDIT:, I'm well pleased with the new facility as posting pictures to some forums had become a PITA especially since photoBucket decided to change policies

OK so now I'm off for a glass of wine  :028:
