Our FamilyForum Pictures Gallery
A series of short articles on how to use the FamilyForum Pictures Gallery

How to use the gallery  ... Setup your own album

Get your pictures ready to publish

Using the 'New & Improved' FamilyForum Gallery:

You should find that the new & improved   FamilyForum Gallery is lots easier to use  
but here are a few basic tips in case you need a little detail on how to get started.

You can find the Gallery by clicking on the  'Gallery' link/button at the top of each page:

Once you're in the gallery you'll be able to see  the Albums that are already there and
you'll be able to add your own pictures to  most of them... you will also be able to
set up your own albums if you wish, but  more about that later.


For now lets learn how to place your pictures in the existing albums.


At the bottom of each album page there will be a link  that you can
use 'Add a picture'... click on it and it will return a screen where you
can browse to your pictures and upload them to that album.
There are also some options to consider...

       
  • Title: You must enter a title for your picture.
  •    
       
  • Category: (albums) The dropdown list will show you all of the albums  and you can pick the one you want your picture to upload into.
  •    
       
  • Description: Its always good to enter some of the details about who is in your  picture like where, when, how... you know all that stuff.
  •    
       
  • Keywords: Don't worry about that one, but it would be words that a search would  use and relate to the picture like... vacation, Christmas, reunion or things like that.
  •    
       
  • Upload Picture: Use the Browse button to find the picture wherever you have it on your computer.
  •    
       
  • Additional Options: Just what it sez of course, I like to leave both options checked for OK.


After that just click the Add Picture button and wait for the upload to finish.
It may take a minute or two so be patient...
That's it! Your picture should appear in the album of your choice now.

Please Note:
The 'Quota Limit' that you see at the bottom of this next window is a very important value, please read  more about it in "Getting Your  Pictures Ready to Publish"....

Enjoy... GPa Ken.

How to use the gallery  ... Setup your own album

Setup your own Personal Album

This how-to will give you the details on how to setup and use your personal album in the FamilyForum Gallery.

Its really very easy to get started posting your pictures to your gallery and setting it up is easy as well...

Heres how:
       
  • First; you can find links to the gallery on all of the forum pages so use one of them to go to the gallery.
        ...make sure to be logged in to the forum.
  •    
  • Once in the gallery look to the upper right for the [MyGallery]  link.
        ...this will take you to the setup page for your gallery.
       
       
       
  •    
  • On this page click on the link for "Add Category"
       
       
  •    
  • This next window is where you pick a name for your album and other details like how you want to describe the album.
        We've named this one Minnie's Album.
        Don't worry about the "Gallery Icon URL" and the "Upload Gallery Icon" for now... we will talk about those later.
        Also don't worry about the "Parent Category" setting for now because it will just say None but it can be changed later if needed.
       
       
       
  •    
  • Once you have the details entered in this screen just click on the Add Category button and you are finished!!!
        After you click on the Add Category button you will go to your new album, but there will be no pictures of course so lets add one or two to see how that part works.
       
            Adding pictures to your new album:
  •    
  • Under the Gallery Name heading you can see your album listed (Minnie's Album for this example)
        To add some pictures lets go ahead and click on the name.
       
       
       
  •    
  • When you click on your album name it will take you to this next screen where you can upload your pictures.
        The "Add a picture" link is for only one picture at a time but the "Bulk Add Pictures" link will let us upload up to 10 pictures at a time and thats the one we will use this time.
       
       
       
  •    
  • Now just browse to your picture folder on your PC and upload your pictures!
        Be sure to include lots of detail about each picture, like who's in it and where it was taken plus any other detail you think might be interesting.
        You can see Minnie's finished album HERE.
        Special Note: To make sure that your pictures will upload take a look at the How_To on how resize your pictures... Getting Your Pictures Ready To Publish

        Enjoy... GPa
