I am always wanting to search for certain products being used as well, so that may be nice (have a field to put in certain products that may be used that would be searchable).


This feature has been added, both to this site and to the one that's in the works. Thanks for the suggestion. A "Search Keywords" text box has been added to the "Edit Photo" page. You'll see it when uploading new images, or after you click the Edit button under one of the photos in your personal gallery. Keywords entered into this box will be used by the Gallery search engine.

You'll find that the images shown on the "single image" pages in the gallery are larger than before.

Sherry C wrote:In my opinion, the info below the images could be smaller, all the text takes away from the images.


Just FYI, the image page will be "cleaner" on the new site.

Sherry C wrote:If possible, please make it so that once an image is clicked on, we can scroll to the next image in the gallery (not the individuals gallery). It's hard to scroll through and leave comments because it doesn't stay in succession in the gallery.


I've made a change that partly solves this issue. When viewing a gallery page with multiple thumbnails (such as Recent Images), click the title of an image rather than the image itself. The background will darken and the image will enlarge in an "lightbox" overlay. Without closing the overlay, you can click the "Next" icon to view the layouts in same order in which they appear on the thumbnails page.

While browsing the layouts in this way, you'll find that a new "Click to Comment" caption has been added under each photo. Click that caption and the comments page for the layout will open in a new browser tab.

This is in the works.

The new site should be easier to use with mobile devices and iPads but based on your comment about resizing, I think the issue you described is corrected. With very rare exceptions, it's no longer necessary to resize your images before uploading.

Thanks for your input!

I am unable to upload anything to the gallery right now - is that part of the update?
I have a challenge page and a new kit page to share... ;D

It may be related to the update, but I wasn't aware there was a problem before you asked. What happens when you try to upload to the gallery? Are you getting an error?

I'm not sillypea, but I gave it a try...
It will let you load the image, name, etc. and even shows the small image. When I hit submit, it tells me the web page expired. I'm going to try from my iPad.

It won't work from my iPad. When you hit "submit", it freezes.

Under each image in the gallery you will see a row of small icons. The second icon is a star with a plus sign next to it. Click that icon to add the layout to your favorites.

To go to your favorites page, use the "Galleries" drop down menu in the top navigation. If you're logged in, you should see the option to "manage my favorites" under "Upload to My Gallery".

Great!! Thank you, Alan!! (And for the avatar update, too! ;) )

Hello there! So, while I don't think there is a "like/love" button yet for comments, there is a "favorite" button for gallery images here:[url][URL=http://s1184.photobucket.com/user/SuzMannecke/media/CDLikeButton1_zps6b28c44a.jpg.html]Image[/url][/url]
