  • Question Photo albums

    Awhile back, alaskachuck had problems with editing his photo albums, and I think I remember the mods saying there was a file size limit of the photo(s) that can be added to the album(s).

    I've searched, but can't find the post.

    I cannot find the place to upload my photos now. It is not a size issue. I finally stopped trying. I will give it a shot again soon. I could create the album but was never getting the upload pics thing. I have made enough albums so i am lost

      I knew it wasn't a size issue, but I thought, key word being thought, Brian said somewhere during the thread that there was a limit on the actual size of the files or maybe the albums(?). I checked the FAQ's and searched for more on the albums, but I can't find anything. I didn't want to try to download something in to the album that was to large, waiting for it to download and then have it time out or fail due to the size.

      I'm getting pictures to download, but some of them are morphing themselves in to super sized versions of what I've got saved on my computer. And I can't figure that one out.

        Now i went and looked and there is the album and the photos. I need to quit drinking or working so much. I for the life of me tried to load the winter solstice photos for so long and could never do it. Now it is like poof they are there. I hate being blonde

          Looking at my own albums, some of the pics in the Fishing albums super sized themselves, and the entire Iraq albums pictures downloaded so far have super sized themselves.

            I'm actually not very familiar with the details of the photo album feature. I'll try to learn what I can, but at this point I'm not much help.

              This is the closest Thread I can find, to my question so I'll resurrect it, bit different problem than the previous discussion:

              Trying to upload pics to my Albums, I tried going to Photobucket and copy/pasting the URL and it came back as "invalid file"
              Yet, these are "bucket photos" that are in use now on threads I have recently done. So any ideas why I can't upload them to files on my page?

              So, I went to uploading them from my computer, not fun, cause they're not as organized as the "Bucket ones" that have already been sorted for threads here, and some of them come up with a little reject, red circle with x or something, these also are already in use in threads via photobucket, yet can't get them from my computer to my albums

              Ideas? Thanks

                Even with the new site update you can upload photos from your C: drive or wherever. Pasting a URL won't do anything, the [IMG] code works for posts in threads but not in an album. I had a hard time finding the add button when you click upload, its at the top right of the pop-up window. Good luck.

                  Thanks for the reply, yep, that's what I've found works, uploading from my computers My Pictures File, works fine, but I was soooo hoping to be able to paste from my Photobucket site where I've organized ones to use for threads,
                  it does seem they give you that option,on the "ad button" to paste a URL but I can't make it work, oh well

                    copy the URP from the bucket... and type... [img]-[/img] out by hand; and paste the URL in between them.. don't use the quick link( remove the - i put that there to hold the HTML)

                      Thanks for the help, I tried this Vince, but found that the link I am copying to paste, does already include these [img]'s you mention.
                      After clicking on "Ad photos" and choosing to add from a webpage, I'm going to photobucket, hitting on the photo, going to the URL, the botttom option for that photo and copying, an example looks like this:




                      and getting the message from the webpage, that it is "an invalid." Yet it works here?

                        album pics must be uploaded to this site?

                        I think you're going to have to wait to hear from a mod on here, but my best guess is that album pics must be actually uploaded to this site rather than referenced from afar (photobucket for example) with the IMG code.

                        Just a guess.

                        Mods? Want to come straighten this out?

                          Sorry about the delay on this - I somehow missed this thread. Anyhow, FM is correct on this (as far as I know). I have not yet found a way to reference album pictures to photos hosted elsewhere. While I greatly prefer offsite picture hosting for posting in threads, it doesn't appear to be an option for individual albums.

                            Thanks Brian, I went that way and got some Albums created, took a while, reached my max pretty quickly

                            another question, I guess as there is a limited amount of photos that can be uploaded. Seems pretty tightly limited,

                            is there a chance in the future that Albums can be linked to an offsite Album? Just curious

                              if i am understanding this correctly... that when we did the new server upgrade all the hosted photos in our albums became attachments similar to those posted under the manage attachment links and down loaded directly from my computer... those attachments can only be used in one spot. I think.. ( THINK ) the new forum ware is seeing those stored photos as that kind of attachment now and not letting us reuse them????? nor will it allow me to add additional ones.
