The old Photo Gallery used the Gallery software which ran on the webserver. Unfortunately software support ceased mid 2014 and considerable effort became necessary to keep it running. After reviewing different options it was decided to migrate the Photo Gallery to SmugMug since this was the only platform which could support the existing data.
Members may upload images to the following albums.
|Outings||Allow members to display images taken on club outings|
|Competitions||Members are encouraged to display award winning photos|
There is no limit to the size of images which may be uploaded but in practice large images take some time to upload and for convenience it is suggested that image sizes be the same as for EDI competitions viz
- sRGB colour space
- max 1920 pixels horizontal (width)
- max 1080 pixels vertical (height)
- max 2MB file size
Note that the software checks image sizes but does not prevent uploading if non compliance is found.
Uploaded images need a title (e.g. Harbour Bridge) and the file naming convention is to use the title (e.g. Harbour Bridge.jpg). If the file name already exists try a variation (e.g. Harbour Bridge -02.jpg).
The software gets your name from the membership database so if it says it cannot find you then you need to update your email address by contacting Chris Barlow.
The software will also ask for tags. For outings these identify any people in images; for competitions these identify the section (e.g. colour prints) and award (e.g. Special Merit).
At present the Outings and Competitions uploads are working but batch processing means that the images will not appear in the albums for a day or so. This will be fixed by the end of March.
At present there is no method to delete images so you will need to contact Chris Barlow and advise the gallery/file name to be deleted.
The members area has been given a low priority and will be available in April.
