Gallery/Photo Question

Post by ceekay on Fri Dec 10, 2010 9:45 pm

Will you be putting in a gallery for the layouts and projects that we work on?

Glad you asked...

So here is the debate. We can add a small gallery for a reasonable fee, but it would mean projects would "age out" of the gallery and older stuff would be deleted. So for now I think it might be better if we just use photobucket or similar and then people share their projects here that way.

But if y'all really prefer a gallery and understand that your project will be deleted after 6 months or after a year, then we can set that up for the site.

Thoughts?

How would that work, Bree?

If it's something for a challenge it would obviously go into that challenge thread which sounds like a great idea.

But what's if it's something random? Where would we post if not in the gallery? Would there be a special forum where each member could have their own thread of stuff? I know another site that does that and I think it works pretty well.

I LOVE your idea. I have been trying to work out what to do with everyday projects and I think having a forum with a thread for each member could be a GREAT way to do that.

True!

I just felt like a gallery where things get deleted after a time period seemed weird!

I like the idea of posting it in the forums, not specifically in a gallery
however I wanted to post the Christmas cards I made today and wasn't sure where to put them?
you could you make a forum for Challenge photos, Layout photos, Card photos, Etc.

I ended up posting mine in the Saturday crop chat thread because that's where we were discussing the making of Christmas card, please let me know if I should move it elsewhere

I will work on the forum today Smile

And you can always share in more than one place. I saw the cards! Too cute!

I started trying to set up the gallery thread area. Not totally sure how this should best work so PLEASE share feedback and we can improve as well go! Smile

Monica if I can see how it works on another site that would be great, or if you have ideas/tips.

I think they just have a forum called Gallery or Scrappy Projects or something like that and then each person just started their own thread of stuff within it.

I'll go look again and send you a link.

I haven't seen what you've done here yet though so off to check it out.

So I assume y'all will put all your projects in your own gallery thread and then have the choice to also link it up in category threads if you like.

I need to talk to team so we can decide how to handle challenge projects. Most likely I think we will just have you share the project IN the challenge thread.

Hmmm... I would think you might want to add new posts to your thread, but I don't know which would work better Alecia! Laughing I guess we'll have to experiment and see what seems to work best for everyone!

You can choose to have photobucket automatically resize as you upload (somewhere under options I believe) or manually resize them in photo bucket. Most forums, like here, can handle 600 pixels wide.
