Multiple Image Upload

Postby saslord » Tue Apr 25, 2006 6:03 pm

You can now upload up to 5 images at once at www.railwaypictures.co.uk

Simply login/register and you will see the multi-upload button next to the single upload button at the top right hand corner of each category.

This should make it much easier and quicker to upload your images.

I am also working on a personal image section for you to show off your own collection.

Regards

Simon

The only trouble I have had with posting comments pictures is the text picture verification. It is difficult to see the case of the text in the images so I end up putting a 'c' instead of a 'C', I know you can click it to get a different image but often the next image it gives you is just as hard to work out.

I really like the site and I think it has a good cause to go to. There are lots of interesting images on there, which I have used to help me brainstorm ideas for my model railway. I often rate pictures on there or comment as I am usually interested in the pictures.

I have noticed than when you are viewing someones pictures there is a button to view all image posted by the user, would it be possible to put a link in each members control panel or light box.

Just thought I'd input my views as someone else has.

Good set of sites, and I will continue to use them as I haven't had many problems.

Hi Danny,

See what I mean.You go all the trouble of browsing, writing comments under images, writing descriptions... going thru that verification ( still do not understand why its necessary.) and when you press the submit button you are asked to start all over again ! Its frustrating.
I have no argument about the sites contents its great ,only the process of uploading.

You have to be a member to upload and it says that the images get checked before they get put up so, I don't see the need for the verification every time!

I know you're a member mate, I don't think I explained what I was saying very well though :oops:.

What I meant was...

Is it necessary to make us verify every time we wish to put an image up? Because we have to verify to become a member and it says that the images get checked before they put up.

Hope I have explained better!

Danny.

It's standard to verify, and it's to stop the idiots of this world trying to upload pictures that may not be relevant, and there are some out there.

I don't mind the pictures being checked - but I share your frustration at trying to work out what the sqiggly letters are in that box. I reckon 50% of my uploads bounce first time :?

However, I enjoy this site - it has variety.

Hi Giles,

To be honest I know nothing about RailwayPictures other than it is owned (I think) by Simon who also owns this forum.

Probably the best thing to do is drop an email to: info@railwaypictures.co.uk

I recently tried to upload 7 photos into Real World Railways, but received the message that there is a maximum of 5 allowed.

Yet I see more than 5 in individual Layout posts and in the Photo thread.

Is it the case that a maximum of 5 applies to some sections but not others, or is it a case of uploading 5 to start with and immediately follow with another 5?

Cheers,

Mike

Hi Mike,

do you mean on this forums layouts section? some people use external image hosts to upload images (i use Flicker) this lets you upload as many images as you want and in turn insert as many as you want into a single post

Thanks Alex - maybe that is the answer - it was actually seeing your latest post in the Layouts section that prompted me to ask - but it would be interesting to know if you can do an initial 5 then follow on with a further 5.

you should be able to as i believe the limit is per post so for each batch of 5 images try creating a new post

i take my images from my iPhone and I can use the Flicker app to upload them right from the phone but cant do that with the forum editor, Flicker also resizes them so its easier for me as i am lazy :lol:

if it would be helpful i can make a guide for how to use flicker with the forum?

I realised that a fresh post would do the job but it's a bit of a pain to do so - I might experiment on uploading 2 separate batches of 5.

Thanks for the offer of a guide - I think that might already exist somewhere.
