    The more alert among you, or maybe the biggest slackers, might
    just have noticed a new tab on our navigation system, it says
    'Gallery' and is a direct link to the newest feature on
    OUTDOORSmagic, which is - astonishingly - an OUTDOORSmagic member
    photo gallery.

    It basically does what it says on the can. All OUTDOORSmagic
    members now have three megabytes of space on the site to display
    their favourite outdoors images to the world and, more specifically,
    other OM users.

    It's relatively dead easy to use - it must be because I just used
    it - simply click on the <a HREF="http://www.outdoorsmagic.com/gallery/gallery.asp?sp=&v=6" TARGET=blank>gallery
    link</a> and follow the instuctions. We've popped up some pics of the
    Annapurna Circuit trek - right - so you can see how things look and
    how your finished album will appear to users.

    If you have any problems, check out our <a HREF="http://www.outdoorsmagic.com/news/article/mps/UAN/2970/v/1" TARGET=blank>how
    to use the gallery page</a> and you should find the answer there.

    A few quick points worth noting:

    ∑ You have a total of 3 MB of space, so you can upload more
    smaller images.

    ∑ Each image is limited in size to 250 K, the uploader won't let
    you upload bigger ones

    ∑ Images have to be approved before going live so there will be
    a short delay

    ∑ Images can be any shape but tall ones won't thumbnail as
    well

    ∑ That's it really, hold onto your pants, the gallery is
    live....

    We reckon it's a great addition to the site and will build into a
    fantastic resource in time. Enjoy :-)

    Take a look at the <a HREF="http://www.outdoorsmagic.com/gallery/gallery.asp?sp=&v=6" TARGET=blank>gallery
    page</a> now

    Also, remember that after uploading the image, you need to go back to the page where you've entered the image details and click submit or the image will simply float off into hyperspace.

    Once that's done, we approve the image, it goes live and you get an e-mail telling you that it's up on the site. Easy really.

    Oh, and there's a new forum section too, which you've probably noticed. It's called 'Gallery' :-)

    One small proofing error, at the top of the new 'Gallery' page you can click on "view abums". Unless this is a link to an outdoors voyeur bum fetish page!

    Whatever gets you going Jon!

    Jon

    Great idea - but a few questions and suggestions.

    Is there any way members get to know when they are reaching their 3mb limit and can therefore replace images etc?

    And can you put page number and previous/next image buttons at the bottom of the pictures too? It would make scrolling through them easier when viewing on a smaller monitor.

    Otherwise - the best thing on OM for ages!

    Lets get as many members photos on the site too so we can all laugh at each other!!

    Hi Rod, glad you like it. I don't actually know the answer to the capacity issue, but will find out. As far as page numbers go, the system's still developing, so it's definitely something that could be in the first upgrade.

    I've posted a few images to this excellent feature.
    I've been scrolling through some outstanding pictures by other photographers, and would like to comment on them , how do I do this?

    Thanks

    Les - looks like you can click on the "start a discussion" link on the relevant page then start a thread that will link to that photo (or album) - I guess it would be a good idea to choose thew "Gallery" option when the post a message page comes up.

    Is it possible to do a link from the forums to a particular picture in my gallery (a link that doesn't direct to another photo when I upload some more photos)
