Daviss: any more feedback on Precious Photos vkn
vkn: Just sent another mail
AYWalton: I did get it and checked the site. Looks promising for sure.
vkn: Mel Collier wondering why it has taken so long
AYWalton: Not sure technically what to look for, though.
vkn: AYW just upload a photo or two and share the usability
alt: are you asking for us to submit photos as test cases vkn, or are what has already been submitted good enough to use as examples?
Daviss: I will submit one more
vkn: No/yes alt Experience the uploading of photos and share experience
AYWalton: Oh----I didn't realize that you were asking for us to upload a photo! Sorry about that!
alt: I like the aspect of the "color" photos...
vkn: Is there ease in use
AYWalton: Will do.
vkn: How to merge old with new
AYWalton: (you gotta spell it out for me or I won't get it!) LOL
alt: me too AYWalton LOL
Daviss: lol AYWalton
AYWalton: I thought you meant just look at it.
vkn: lol me either AYW so we just gotta learn by doing
AYWalton: If you don't say upload, I won't know to do it---and I never try anything, I have to be shown. lol my "visual" learner pattern.
vkn: there are no instructions cause we have not been here before so we learn by OOPS! lol
Daviss: thats me and showing me takes more than a notion
alt: I also like the feature of linking to a photo that is already online or adding something from your PC/Mac.
AYWalton: I looked at it and just said--- "hmm...looks good!" lol I had not noticed that feature. I will check it out again.
vkn: AYW funny lol Also language is done by non Anglais speaking Rainer so I would ask you to suggest some wordsmithing
alt: from what I've seen Precious Photos can become a 'hit' with now being able to put up a color photo and also room for text to explain who & what the photo is about.
vkn: Also you will be able to go in and edit your own uploads
alt: great vkn!!!!
AYWalton: that is quite good! when will that merge with the old photos already there?
vkn: as long as there ia a profile and password
AYWalton: so do we have to create a password to upload?
vkn: AYW the merge is a bit of a headache. No solution as yet
AYWalton: or can they just be re-entered? (how many are there?)
vkn: No AYW you will use your current credentials AYWalton HUNDREDS
Daviss: interesting, I wonder about the merging part myself. I uploaded a pic from the old PP so will I have the choice to delete rather one that is on the old PP
AYWalton: I see.
vkn: The test you uploaded when we configure an admin script
AYWalton: Are there also any photos in a queue waiting to appear?
Daviss: would duplicate show up
vkn: BJ really wanted to use the Omeka software but......
alt: vkn, I'm trying to get my arms around the difference between adding to a "gallery' and adding to an "album".
vkn: Not at this test site AYW but we do have something of a slew waiting Me too alt
alt: hehehehehehe @vkn
vkn: But each uploader will be able to 'manage' their own gallery
Daviss: each person will be able to load 5000
alt: nevertheless, I believe it will be a great feature when implemented..... as was the original Precious Photos.
alt: 5,000 ... double WOW!!!!!!
Daviss: so vkn for now you want only two from us
vkn: The old one is all html and is manually managed. It was consuming too much time from Melvin so he had to let go
alt: ah so, figured that might have been the problem with the earlier version .. time management
vkn: Not sure about 5000 daviss Christine has not given us the max image size as yet
alt: even anything in the neighborhood of 100 would be amazing to me.
vkn: two or ten daviss or until you are using with ease
AYWalton: so the total max will be 5000 right?
vkn: Unknown so let us not worry with limits at this point
Daviss: where did I see that number then vkn
vkn: Me no know
alt: vkn, for PP you are interested in photos of people and not documents, right?
vkn: So consider no limits no max
Daviss: oh i see it says gallery max 5000 does each person have a gallery?
AYWalton: sounds promising. I shall upload one, later.
vkn: Well alt we say past but we can decide what say you recommend we recommend
AYWalton: going to run for now.
Daviss: it looks like it according to what I see
AYWalton: have a good day everyone.
Daviss: ok AYWalton
vkn: You can Daviss
alt: I recommend people ONLY
vkn: Got it and agreed Cause docs can be in forum It is what we who are testing say it will be The text explaining needs wordsmithing
alt: oaky, they are good to see, but I wouldn't want to see PP over loaded with photos of tombstones, documents,etc.... I'm more interested in seeing People.... just saying LOL LOL
Daviss: I may have to borrow some of alts pictures LOL LOL
alt: help our yourself Daviss
vkn: People for me too also we might consider a max year and then maybe a place for unknowns
Daviss: If I were not afraid of going to jail for a non civil rights issue I would choke my family of picture hoarders
alt: vkn, without being too resttictive you might want to consider a time limit for photos like at least 25 years old.... otherwise folks like me might overload the site with photos of great grandchildren born within the last 5-10 years LOL LOL
Daviss: place for unknowns would be wonderful vkn
vkn: Yes alt agreed Well we might consider currents etc
vkn: I got more pics than alt if you can believe that daviss
Daviss: lol hard to believe
vkn: Picture less than 25 years old
alt: restrictions... that's always a problem with a public site,, someone will find a way to abuse the privilege of uploading photos with no thought of others.
vkn: 1950 would be the margin?
Daviss: some grands are born after 1950 vkn
alt: that would/could work vkn a sliding dateline .. 50 years from the current year.
vkn: All uploads will be moderated or subject to moderation alt
Daviss: grandparents I mean
vkn: 1790-to ???? and ???? -to ????
alt: well,y'all I have to run.... great discussion on Precious Photos.... Hope it will be successful in every way.
vkn: Thanx alt
Daviss: later he was fast lol
