Uploading to multiple albums at one time
« on: January 16, 2007, 08:58:35 pm »

Hello all,
I was wondering if there was a way to add this function. It would be much better to be able to upload images to multiple albums at once or at least set it up so that if users do add an image to their own album, they could copy it to a public album without having to reload it. That wastes disk space and is not as convenient.

thanks,
Joe

Thanks for the reply. That information is very helpful. But there are a few issues with it.

First of all, I can only assign one keyword per album. In a gallery with paintings, photography, digital art, drawings, etc., each with similar albums, images would get placed in incorrect albums. To explain: If I have a category called "Photography", with an album called "Nudes" and I have a category called "Paintings" also with an album called "Nudes" they will have the same keyword "Nudes". So a painting with the keyword "Nudes" will also show up in the photography album.

Next, I have many users. How are they supposed to know the keyword of the albums.? There is a list of recommended keywords but that doesn't tell them which keyword goes with the album.

Please have a look at my gallery to get a better idea of what I am talkin about: http://asingularcreation.com/Gallery/

best regards,
Joe

I am not asking for support. I am askng for someone to listen to my suggestion and consider it. I think the keyword option to place images in multiple albums is very poor. Some albums have the same name, such as Photography/Nudes and Paintings/Nudes. If I place a painting in my personal gallery with the keyword Nudes. it will go into the photography album as well. Also, I have well over a thousand users. How are they suppose to know all of the correct keywords and how to place their images in multiple albums in that manner? Allowing users to be able to select multiple albums by holding down the control key and clicking the albums from the dropdown menu would be a much better option. If you guys do not want to consider it, I would be happy to pay one of the developers to do that for me.

all the best,
Joe
