Hi all, I have a question regarding the photo's in my personal gallery.

Is it possible to sort my existing photo's into albums, or do I need to upload them directly into the album ?

I have created a couple of albums but cannot find any way to achieve this, then again I'm certainly no compewda guru so I might be looking right past it !!

Thanks in advance, Damian

While we're on the subject, can we delete older photos from the gallery? I didn't see an option for that. Seeing the size limit makes me nervous about running out of room someday.
thanks,
Sean.

I don't see any options to move pictures to an album. Looks like you have to upload it directly to the album.

As for deleting an image, you need to click on the picture then click on the Edit button.


This brings up a box where you can delete your file.

Gary,
thanks for the speedy response. I hadn't tried all the icons down there.
Much obliged.

Thanks Gary, that's what I thought. Now, if I upload it direct to the album then delete the copy in the main gallery, the pic will disappear from any threads that it's posted to won't it ??

Yep I'm led to believe that would be the case.

While you're uploading, take note that anything you upload to a Campaign gallery also uploads to your personal one, using up space...

One of the benefits of becoming a subscriber is a much-expanded personal gallery, so space is not a problem anymore!

Yes since the location of the pic has changed, any URLs pointing to the old location will be pointing at nothing so you'll probably get the dreaded red X (or maybe a broken link icon).

You could have whoever manages the forum that the thread appears in (like me for Armorama Campaigns) edit your thread post to point to the new location. Or you could just add a new post pointing to the new locations.
