The Photos Gallery
has had a few updates.
Apart from a few bug fixes you can now upload images to the Gallery when you are composing your post. New Gallery Upload Button
When you "compose" your post you now have the option of uploading an image (or multiple images) and having the bbcode links automatically embdded into your post.
If you look under the post compostion box there is now a new "Upload images"
button (see image below):
Simply compose your post up to the point where you want your image(s) to appear. Then hit the "Upload images" button and you'll be taken to the Gallery where you can upload your image(s). You'll be prompted for your Gallery username/password if not already logged in. Once the image(s) have uploaded you'll be instantly retuned to your post and the links will be "auto magically" inserted.Take a photo on your mobile and upload "on the fly"
If using a mobile you can even compose your post, hit the button, and then take a photo on your phone. The image will be automatically uploaded to your Gallery account and the link inserted into your post. You can start a topic, take a photo and post it in less than 30 seconds.
This button is in addition to any existing functionality so you can still upload directly in the Gallery if you wish.Note:
You must already have a seperate Gallery account setup for this to work. If you need one you can join for free here
Please note that this is now the preferred way of adding images
to your post. Please avoid using "Attachments" when uploading images.
Along with the massive 5MB upload limit there's now no excuse for not posting your images so get posting !
Feel free to post here if you have any queries
