    Album questions

    Not sure if I am in the right section, but I made an album earlier tonight and just went to it to see if it was still there. Boy was it.When I click on a picture is goes soooo big you can't even tell what you are looking at. Is there a way to fix that?

    Hi Timepasser,

    One way to fix it is to adjust the size before you send it. Reduce your picture width to 640 and hight to 480 then send. This should be large enough to see and not so large where you can't tell what it is.

    How do I use the Album feature?

    Is this feature designed to post all our previous pictures in?

    I think you can make any photo album you choose. You can either have it public for everyone to see, or you can have it private and you and the moderators are the only ones who can see it.

    Thank you for posting this. I set up an album the other evening just playing around, and my photos came out quite large. I appreciate the tip --- now I'm going to try and see if I can't edit this. Thanks again!!

    I just don't know how to pull the pictures into the album. When I do create new album, it only lets me describe it, doesn't tell me how to create new album

    I'm asking the same question. I was able to upload 2 quilts into my album, but the other quilt pictures are too big and I don't know how to change the size of my pics so they aren't any bigger than 1.9...So anyone out there who has the answer would be greatly appreciated....

    I believe you have to change the size of your images in some sort of photo editing software before you upload them. How you do that depends on what program you are using on your computer. For instance, in Photoshop I go to "image" then "image size" and change it there. You can usually find out how by using the help feature in your program and searching for "image size". Hope this info helps...

    Album Question: How to Change Order of Pictures?

    I started an album yesterday and notice that the first picture I added showed up as the "last" in the album so that as I move from "previous" to "next" it is moving from the newest picture as "previous" to the oldest picture added to the album as "last". That's the opposite of the logic I was expecting, since to view most recent pictures added I have to work my way backwards through the album using the "previous" button to see newer pictures. I'm hoping there's a way to rearrange the order of pictures within an album but haven't found it yet. Any info on this would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I tried everything i could think of to change the order in mine, as well. I'm afraid the only solution is to delete them and start over

    OK, thanks Nancy. It sounds like we may just need to get used to seeing newest pictures at the beginning instead of the end.

    Here's some good help: http://www.quiltingboard.com/faq.php...xt=1&match=all

    Edit: I tried to reach my "user control panel" by clicking on the hyperlink at the above link, and it took me to "settings", which isn't where the "Album" feature is. Instead, you'll find it by clicking on the "My Profile" link up on top of the page, then looking for it on the left hand column. Just click "create album". But the above link still does have good information on how to create the album, and settings for it.

    • Go to your profile, and click on the album on the left hand side.
    • On next screen, click "upload pictures"
    • New box pops up, that should say "manage attachments", if picture you want to upload is on your computer, click the "browse" button and find the picture you want to upload. When you see it in the "choose file to upload" box, double click on it. If done correctly, that should put the complete file path of the picture in the box to the left of the browse buton"
    • Click the blue "upload" box. Depending on the file size, and your internet connection, it could take two second, it could take a few minutes...just be patient. When it's done uploading, you'll see it listed in that box three boxes down labeled "Current Attachments"
    • Close that window, and in the next window, it should show "pending pictures", and that should be the one (or ones, you can do multiple in that third step above). Hit "save changes"
    • Your picture (or pictures) should now be in your album!
    • Work for you?
