Share your photo opps! If you know of an event that might be of interest to other members, why not put it in our calendar? Once you have logged in, you can add items to it – there are instructions at Members Stuff/Updating the Calendar. Several events have been added recently – take a look.
While we were discussing uploading photos to the gallery on Wednesday, Willie enquired whether keywords that you have assigned to your images would be uploaded with them. I've tried, and they are. Furthermore, the keywords are displayed under the thumbnail of the image in the album, where they are clickable links to other images with the same keyword. I clicked the "mountains" keyword in the photo I had put up, and got linked to an image where Willie had the same keyword. So if everyone used keywords, and we agreed on a standard set, we could use that feature for … well, something.
The project team has put together a description of the project. Do please read it BEFORE our Wednesday meeting so that they can answer any questions. Follow the link for the description: Project2016
There is an album in the gallery where you can upload work for the project, for discussion (use the comment feature) or final artwork. You have to be logged in to see work in the album (Project 2016 – Collage) or to upload or comment. It is currently the last album in the gallery.
Please bring in a few possible candidates on a USB memory stick on Wednesday, so that David can get an idea of what is available.
When we post news items here, they are automatically copied to our facebook page, but as was mentioned last night, not everyone uses facebook. This is an experiment that should send an email notification of new posts to all registered users, so apologies if you get it in error, or you don’t get it (please let us know), or it just doesn’t work.
Good to see all the pictures being uploaded to our gallery – keep it up, folks.
