NEW FEATURE: ADDITIONAL VIEWS ON PHOTOS

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
We have been getting a lot of requests for this feature. As usual I hope it works free of bugs, but if you are getting errors, please post in this thread for help.

Our previous terms were rather strict when it comes to uploading multiple photos of the same cake. Obviously some cakes require multiple photos as there is a lot of detail we may want to show.

In the past most of these photos have been removed as "duplicates" if they were too similar in nature. This rule was in place to try and keep the massive gallery organized.

If you have multiple photos of the same cake, here is how it works:

1. Upload Your Main Photo of the Cake.

This is the photo that will show as a thumbnail for searches, and when viewing "My Photos"

After you have completed uploading the photo, you will see a new button below the image (where the edit/delete buttons are)
Image


2. Click The ADD MORE PHOTOS button

After clicking this button you will be taken to an upload page that is slightly different. It will only ask you to select the file. You will not need to re-enter title, description etc.

3. View The Extra Photos
After uploading your new photo, you will see the thumbnail listed directly below the large main image in the area marked "View Additional Photos of This Cake"

Things To Know About This Feature
You cannot save any "additional photos" to your favorites, only the "main" photo will show in your favorites list

Additional photos will not be shown on contest entries (they will be active again after the contest is over)

You cannot edit the extra photos. You can only add and delete them.

Deleting the "Main Photo" will also delete all "Addtional Photos" tied to it.

"Additional Photo" thumbnails will never show in search results, or anywhere else, they will only appear directly underneath the large Main Photo.

We cannot "merge" any previously uploaded photos, so please do not ask icon_smile.gif You will need to delete them and re-upload them, sorry. You can however upload additional photos to any previously uploaded photos.

If you choose to upload multiple photos of the same cake but are not using the special "Add more photos of this cake" button ,your photos may be deleted by the moderators as duplicates.

Thank you! This is so much easier then trying to get the pictures in a collage which distorts them.

Oh Jackie, this is a wonderful feature! I can't wait to try it out.

Here is a question. What about cake toppers, flowers and fondant figures on that cake? Do they also need to go with the cake and not have a separate photo? Would the fondant figure and flower gallery then become only for figures and flowers not associated with any cake?

Thanks. This is great. Sometimes you really want to see other views of the fantastic cakes that everyone makes.

Jackie, if one of my additional views was deleted from my gallery already and I wish to repost it, can I do this on my already existing photo? My tye dye tee shirt cookies photo is the main one and I had a closeup view posted as another picture but that was deleted as a 'duplicate' of the original (even though it wasn't the same cookie or design at all.) Would I be able to post the closeup picture in with the existing tye dye tee shirt cookies photo?
