Gallery Upgrade
« on: December 15, 2018, 03:04:00 PM »
Dear all,

This weekend we'll be installing a new gallery to the forum.  Your images are all safe and nothing will happen to them, other than migrating to the new gallery.

Some new features will include editing your photo's on the forum, use of filters, and hopefully an easier way of uploading your photo's.  I know some members are put off by the current method of uploading - forums are more complex than Facebook!  ;)

Sorry for any more disruption, but I feel that it's best to get as much out of the way as soon as we can.

Many thanks as always for your wonderful support.

Tank/Chris

Mr Administrator with all these upgrades you're really spoiling us! :D

But seriously, many thanks for doing the impossible - improving the world's best forum. :beers:

If you want to resize your pics image files I recommend IrfanView (https://www.irfanview.com/). It's free for non-commercial. I haven't used it for years, but it had a simple option of resizing for web use. Give it a go.

HTH. :beers:

I've edited my previous post (#7) as I intended to say resize the image files. With IrfanView one can reduce the file size without reducing the image resolution.

You can also use Image Resizer (free) on windows machines

https://www.bricelam.net/ImageResizer/

Once installed you can just right click on an image and select the desired size.

Any half decent photo editor allows resizing in mm, cm or pixels as well as allowing cropping,  adjusting brighness, contast and colour balance, adding text and cloning out unwanted bits and a few other manipulations; some are free, some cheap and some ridiculously expensive. Ease of use also varies!
Cheers MIKE

@Tank  So is the gallery still down then?

Ive just had a 'you are not allowed to add an item in this category' message, when trying to post to the gallery.

Probably just me being impatient.
cheers

We're still having some issues!  Files have been uploaded (again!), but some of the coding needs to be changed in order to work on the new server.  I'm in talks with the author of the new gallery and I hope this will be rectified soon.  Nothing is ever easy!!!   ::) ;D
