Is there a way to change a date on an uploaded photo? What I would like to do is have a hidden gallery for certain members to upload thier projects when they are done, but I don't want them public until the due date. However, if they load them into a private gallery now, then when we "unhide" them they won't show up in the recently added section.
Also, in the admin cp I have this option set to yes: "Allow users to choose additional categories during upload?", but when you upload a photo, there isn't a way to do this. As an admin, I can go in and there is an option when I edit a photo for "copy image to:" but even when I copy it to a different folder the image doesn't show up.
Private galleries will not show for people who do not have access.
I know this....
Hidden images need to be unhidden to be seen
I know this, too...
optional categories on upload options if set to yes will result in optional cats being offered on new uploads
I have this set to yes in the admin cp and there is no option to do this when you upload anything.
Like I said in my first post, I want to move the images in the hidden gallery to a public gallery when the due date comes up and I want to know if there is a way to change the date when I move them so they will show up in the "recently added" images. For instance - if one of my members uploads an image to a private folder today and I don't want it public until 10 days from now, when I move it to the public folder it won't show up in the "recent photos" listings.
Changing date a very handy feature, especially in a publishing environment, as kimber89 mentioned, when preparation of pics is done in the private Gallery, and when they are moved to the public arena the timestamp is changed to bring them up to most recent upload.
It's one of these things like username change > during upload or after upload, it isn't used extensively, but when it's needed it's a like having a spare tire in the trunk when you need it - invaluable.
Additionally I've found numerous other ways to put this into creative use.
The date change capability would be the same ...
If, for example as in the vB mod, for re-ordering posts in a thread, the time stamp includes hour and minute ... if this were possible with PP the sequence of a group of pics incorrectly uploaded could be rearranged.
Not everyone will use them, but for those who do are committed to this product because it gives us the capability of making our gallery presentations even better.
When I upload a single image to the gallery there isn't an option to pick multiple categories, but if I upload more than one image at once then it goes to the thumbnail processing screen and then there is the option to pick more than one category. Why can't I do this with every upload?
On the previous version, even when you uploaded 1 image it still took you to the thumbnail processing screen where you could put in additional information such as keywords. Why does the new version not do that?
I really liked the single upload preview before submittion like it was, not because of keyword entry which I don't use, but because I'm a real stickler at wanting to give members every opportunity to
- see thumbnail preview and check that it's the correct pic.
- review Title /description - format/spelling before final submittion.
I realize some sites may prefer the faster processing of individual pic submittions but I would much appreciate the mod to have single upload preview before submittion, as was, if possible.
This would be a time saver, reducing editing of others pics, including my own, as I am just as prone to tieping inkorekly.
