Uploading Photos onto GoY
Members have had a few issues over how to load up photos, the text below is a good example. I confess I struggle a little with loading photos myself although I don’t use it much. I was pondering whether it was worth putting some guidelines on the site and thought it might be a good start to see what you all thought about the issues and what process you have developed yourselves.
These are 2 emails I received recently
1 Thank you for this wonderful website. I am, however a little confused about uploading photographs. Seem to be doing things twice.
I upload photos of plants in my garden, by:
1. selecting ‘Your options’ ‘Add plants’.
2. selecting ‘Add photo’, fill in details and link photo.
3. selecting ‘Your news’ click on icon ‘photos’ to see what I’ve done, and find that the uploaded photos appear twice.
4. delete duplicate photo.
If I upload a plant from my garden selecting first ‘Add photos’ then I cannot link the photo to my garden plants.
Does this make sense? Should I do this differently?
as a newbie, and wanting to do things right, I got a bit confused when I tried uploading my first picture by using: ‘Your Options’ – ‘Add Photos’ and arriving at: “Link photo to a plant in your garden?”, which has as the default setting: “Not a picture of anything in my garden” – but the picture I was trying to upload was in my garden.
Now I know I should have done: ‘Your Options’ – ‘Add Plants’. Then you will be able to “Link photo to a plant in your garden”.
I did try and look at some of the members – see if I could find out what they do. Here’s two I looked at:
Bloomer – has uploaded pictures using ‘Add Photos’; has no pictures when looking at icon ‘garden’.
Hywel – has uploaded pictures using ‘Add Photos’ and using ‘Add Plants’. Looking at ‘photos’ and ‘garden’.
Lincslass has sussed it out. She has uploaded pictures of plants/shrubs of her garden using ‘Add Plants’. Then uploaded more pictures using ‘Add Photos’ (of the same plant) thus linking the pictures.
