New Galleries and groups
We have added the ability to create galleries.
create gallery (you retain all rights to your images)
Click on the MyProfile link at top right.
When in your profile you will see galleries at the lower left.
Click create gallery
Choose upload images
Either upload from your local machine (jpg) these will be uploaded to the servers and stored online, or you can paste in a link from an image that is hosted online, your site, photobucket..etc. Note:You don't have to have online hosted images anymore as we now allow you to upload them directly.
You can also tag galleries with categories
What good are these galleries if noone can see them?
Choose the community button at the bottom of the header.
When it drops down you will see some options..
Choose galleries to display all the galleries on the CAFE. You can browse other peoples galleries, comment, and even embed the images other places etc. If you don't have a site, feel free to make this your portfolio. We will be doing things to promote the galleries later on when there are more up. I will be featuring the best as Gallery of the Month etc
Some of these features are new to me, so bear with me as I try to explain my understanding of them
Groups are where everyone can upload images into a shared gallery. If you already have a gallery, then its a simple one click (from the gallery page in your personal control panel "My Profile"to add a gallery image to the group, this is the way I suggest doing it.
When people look at groups, you are credited as the author of you image and there will be links back to your gallery and profile. Groups are a way of everyone pitching in together and also a way for your images to more exposure.
I fully expect that these features will be really hot with us once we get used to them
