A Guide To Using The Gallery

The Gallery is a free tool available to all members of Caravan Talk to let you upload and share your photos.

 

We have recently updated the Gallery tool to remove most upload restrictions and photo limits so we should now be able to add high quality pics of our favourite holidays and towcars without having to resize images etc. ..

 

To celebrate and help introduce the gallery to those unfamiliar with it, here's a quick guide on how to add your own albums and photos using the Gallery:

 

Guide to the Gallery pt 1

Start in the Gallery and hit the green upload button to begin the process of adding new photos.

If you've already created an album, click "Select Album", if you want to start a new one click "Create New Album". This guide assumes that you've chosen "Create New Album".

Now you can set the album information - it should be fairly self-explanatory - you can pick the Name, Description, sorting method and whether people can rate or comment on the photos.

Now you can upload images to the album. Select the "Choose File" button and browse to the picture's location and double click on the image. Then you can hit the "Upload" button to add the photo to your album.

Once you've uploaded your images they should be displayed like this. Select "Review & Publish" to continue.

Here you can name the images, add tags, a description and the copyright holder's name if appropriate. Hit the "Save" button at the bottom of the page to publish your album.

You've now published your album, so sit back, relax and let your friends become jealous of your cracking holiday snaps B)

I can't seem to select a photograph to upload onto either the gallery or in a post. Is it because I'm using an iPad or is it just me?

I have been able to add a picture to a post on caravan chat via my notebook/ mini-laptop running Windows 7. However, I still can't post a picture on the gallery using this as I can't seem to scroll down far enough to see the bottom of the page when creating a folder and can't get any further. There's always one isn't there? Cathy.

Hi Cathy,

 

Sorry to hear you're having troubles with the Gallery, could you send me a print screen via email so I can see the issue?

 

Kind regards,

 

Ben
