NEW! Photo Gallery plus an easier way to add images!

#1

Post by xr7g428 » 22 Aug 2017, 14:46

We now have a custom built PHOTO GALLERY! This is a great place to put your Cougar related pictures that you want to share with the Cougar Community. We have also added a special function [CCCGallery} to the comment box to make it very easy to add images stored in the Gallery to your posts.

Here is how it works:

Step 1 Load your images to the Galley.
  • Click on the Gallery button up on the left top of the page (camera icon)
  • Then click on Add Images.
  • You can load images to your private gallery, these won't be searchable, or create a new gallery. Some users will find the old gallery they had years ago has come back!
  • Browse you computer for the image you want to upload. You can do two images at a time. They can be up to 5MB in size so almost anything can be uploaded. It will be automatically resized and compressed for web use.
  • Then scroll to the bottom of the page and hit submit. You should get a success message. To upload more just hit the Add Images button.
Step 2 Use your images in a post.
  • Start your post using the full editor. (click on the Full Editor and Preview button below the Quick Reply box.
  • Click on the Gallery button at the to of the page. Select the album then click on the image you want to use.
  • Right click on the image tag that is already highlighted, and click on copy.
  • Go back to your message, click where you want the image to go. Then click on the CCCGallery button. Put the cursor between the tags, and then click right click to paste in the image tag.
  • Click on preview to see how great the image looks in your post.

Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.

I already used the new image feature. I also created a new sub album. Very easy to use. A big thank you goes out to Bill and Jay for getting this new feature done. Well done guys!

Maybe to big of an image? I had that happen on my first image. I loaded a second image and everything worked fine. My second image was smaller in size.

So you are gettting the "IMG.JPG was successfully uploaded and processed." message and then at the bottom you see the two options and when you click on the view album it you don't see the image?

I didn't get "IMG.JPG was successfully uploaded and processed." I'll try a different picture.

Must be the picture size 3.58MB I though it would resize it to use on the CCC board. Thought it would work with a 5 MB limit. This one works. 37.1 KB.

If you try to load a bigger than 5MB image you will get an immediate message that says "Really Big Image".jpg exceeds the file size limit of 5 M It would never show up in the preview box. What was the file type?
