Please take a moment to check out (and test out) our newest feature - an integrated Photo and media gallery! In the main navigation bar between Messages and Members, you now have a new option, called Gallery
. Clicking that will take you to the main Gallery page, where you can see other member galleries, view, rate and comment on their photos and manage your own photo albums.
To create your own photo album:
1) Click on the Gallery link in the main nav section to get to the Gallery page
2) Click on "My Albums" link on the far right
3) Click on 'New Album" to create an album
4) From there, you're only required to give it a name. You can leave the rest of the settings alone if you want, or you can tweak them. It allows control of things like sort order, set who can read (or even write) to your album, even set a password if you really want to keep your photos private. (you can also go back and edit these options later) Click Submit.
That's it! Your first album will be created and you'll go back to your "My Albums" view. Under your newly created album, you'll have a link to "add an item to this album". Click that to upload your first photo - you can upload a file from your PC to the gallery, or link to an external image URL if the file is already online somewhere.
You aren't limited to photos, though. You can also add youtube videos, PDFs, text files and more. Give it a try today and help me test it out. Please let me know if you have any issues with the new gallery feature. Enjoy!
NOTE: For files that you upload, you are limited to 2 MB, which is a server file limit I have no control over. If your images are bigger than that, you'll need to shrink
