    New Gallery Feature! Image upload tutorial and instructions

    Hello everyone,

    Pakistan Affairs is pleased to announce our new 'Gallery' feature for our members to upload, view and share images.

    The new gallery system allows members to create both public and private albums (albums are not necessary to upload images) to store images in. Images in private albums will not be visible in the gallery to other members or guests, but the uploader can still link to them in order to share them with other members or on other sites.

    Please see following screen shots for uploading instructions:

    re: New Gallery Feature! Image upload tutorial and instructions

    Files can be uploaded to the gallery in two ways:

    1. Uploaded from a members computer using the 'Choose Files' buttons below (please only upload a total of 10 to 14 images at one time for now)

    2. By pasting the URL of an image in the text-boxes highlighted below - change the drop-down menu to display 'Image URL Link' instead of 'Youtube Link' for non Youtube files

    Regardless of whether you upload using method 1 or 2 above, please select the correct 'Category' from the 'Category' dropdown menu highlighted in the screen-shot below. Choosing the correct category will make the entire gallery experience a much more pleasant one for everyone.

    If you wish to upload images into a category that is not present, please contact the forum team
    [MENTION=67]AgNoStIc MuSliM[/MENTION] [MENTION=2]Aryan_B[/MENTION] [MENTION=5]Superkaif[/MENTION] [MENTION=10]bilalhaider[/MENTION] [MENTION=13]RaptorRX707[/MENTION] to have your request for a new category reviewed.

    Creating Albums

    Albums are not necessary for uploading images, but they can be useful to keep images organized for members and to keep images private or restricted to some members. Members can create password protected albums and share the password with selected users in order to only allow those users to view the album. Albums can be created by clicking on the 'Add Album' button as shown below:



    The following window will open and you can enter the name of your album, a description (not necessary) and tags and your password. Click on the last button to keep the album public or hidden

    Gallery Notifications and custom image viewing size

    Regarding notifications and the viewable size of the image when browsing the gallery:

    User can set their max visible image size. This will set the size of the image when viewing it.

    Gallery -> My Profile -> Edit My Information -> View Image Width

    The option to be notified of new images and comments is in the same Edit My Information section

    I tested the resolution setting, the proper is standard 800 pixels width style. If you put 1024, it would make bigger size and slow loading.

    Just put 800.

    re: New Gallery Feature! Image upload tutorial and instructions

    Members, on your post menu you will now notice a little black camera icon as shown highlighted in the screen-shot below:



    If you click on it it'll open another small window that shows all the images in the gallery uploaded by you and you can then sort them using the 'Category' drop-down menu and click on the image you want to include in your post to insert it - the advantage to this system is that you don't have to upload images to imageshack or other similar sites in order to share them. Create a 'Private Album' in the gallery and name it whatever you want, and you can upload images such as screen-shots or other edited images you want to share in your posts.

    We have a section under the Pakistan Military images for that - are you referring to a section for international defence exhibitions and airshows?

    Created as one section - or would two sections, one for International Airshows and one for International Defence Expos be better?

    If you can, give me the names of the defence expos and airshows you are uploading images for so I can create specific sub-categories for them.

    Hi,
    I don't have too many pics,only a few,about 50 odd,but all my own clicks..
    But if you think its appropriate you may create a sub category for Farnborough Airshow 2012 , that will save me some effort in trying to tag and give proper heeding to each pic.
    Thanks anyway.
