Guide to viewing and adding images to the Forum Gallery

Recommended Posts

The gallery can be used to upload images you wish to share with the community. To access it, click the "Gallery" tab at the top of any page.

Gallery Home Page
The gallery has two areas: Categories and albums. Administrators will create the categories that you can upload images into, or create albums within. If you have permission to create albums, you will be able to create them within the categories that administrators designate as accepting new albums. The homepage may show a feed of recent images, featured images, categories and/or recently updated albums, depending upon the administrator's configuration selections.


Viewing Categories and Albums

Image Listing
You will see a tiled layout of images that the album contains. You can click on any thumbnail to see the full-size image. The information will initially display inline, allowing you to navigate the images without leaving the page, however you can view more details about the image by clicking on the image caption within the window.
If the category has any sub-categories or albums, you will see these listed.


Slide Shows
You may be able to see a slide show of all images in that category or album by pressing the slide show link when viewing the list of images. Click on the Slidehow link to enter the slideshow mode.



Viewing Images

Information, ratings and options
To the side of the image, you will see more information about the image such as who uploaded it, when they uploaded it, how many views and comments the image has, and how big it is.

You may see a number of stars which show the image's rating. You may also be able to rate the image yourself by selecting one of the stars. If you are able to rate an image, the stars will change color as you move your pointer over them.


To the side of the image you will see a photostrip of other images in the category or album, which you can use to quickly jump to those images. You can cycle through these images by clicking the < and > buttons to the left and right of the photostrip.

Sharing Images

Below the image, you will have several options to share it with others, such as Facebook, Email, or Twitter.
Embed Images
Each image has unique HTML and BBCode embed links for you to embed them on your website or within the forums. To display these, click on the "Options" drop down, and then click on "Share Links"
Comments
At the bottom of the image's page, you will see any existing comments on the image. You can add a comment by pressing the "comment_add.png Add Comment" button, and you can use the "Reply" and "Multiquote" links, and the Fast Reply box, just like in the forums.


Adding your Images

Clicking an upload link or button will take you to the media upload page. This is a two step process.
The first step is to select or create an album (or category) to upload the images into. Once the album or category has been set, you can upload images right away when the upload form reveals itself.
When you have uploaded the images you wish, you click the 'Review & Publish' button which will allow you to rotate the image or edit the image's details.

More info about the last post:

 

 

- The Gallery Wall of Fame * show only images that are voted by minimum of 4 or 5 Stars in average.

- An image must has been voted by 3 different people before it will be shown, and if it has reached the needed stars amount.

 

//edit

* the Wall of Fame is the top row of pictures on the forum page

:huh:  To reach the big wall of fame galery on the main page  :huh: 

- Are they choosen by the admins/moderators ?

No

 

- An image must has been voted by 3 different people by minimum of 4 or 5 Stars (in average). 

 

example:

 

2 users vote same image 4 or 5 stars = no show  :(

100 users vote same image 3 (or less) stars -average- = no show  :(

3 -or more- users vote same image 4 or 5 stars -average- = show ^_^

 

hope is more clear now, let me know please

What?

 

Thanks for the help.

I wish i had never asked, but as more as i know, as more questions i have. :D

Did we have 3 gallerys?

The Forum, the web page and the my gallery?

 

The Forum Gallery is ok, i have uploaded some stuff there.

 

My Gallery - maybe i could put some stuff from my forum gallery into the my Gallery. Anyway, that gallery sounds confusing.

 

But still my question is not answerd.

How to get a picture into the web page gallery?

Sure i would never reach that gallery, my skill it to poor, but it would be interesting.

Malo, we got an answer:

 

Hey everyone!

 

Rules are very simple:

- Make a great model

- Render it as nice as possible (not inside 3D-Coat only), better if it has some environment

- Post on forum, and wait! :)

 

General idea is that the image should be a finished, well composed, and look good/great (p.s. and be appropriate for children 12+)

:)

Thanks for the explanation Carlosa. Like Malo, I was also confused about the different galleries and how they are judged.

Are there any new rules about the wall of fame pictures?

Yeah, it is nice to see one of my guns there, but i dont have enough stars, so it should not be shown there.

 

Did you have some news for us?
