      To get your images to appear in the Member Galleries you must do the following:
        1) Create a folder in your PFS and give it a relevant name.
        2) Once created, select the folder in the drop-down menu and start uploading files to that folder
        3) Edit folder options by selecting Gallery and Public.

      Simply uploading files to your PFS will not make them visible in the Gallery. If they are not in a folder with properties correctly set, we will not be able to view them. Other than that the files are just sitting in your PFS and taking up space.

      Also, keep in mind that the max size for each file is 80KB. If you try to upload a file larger than that, it won't allow you to do that.

      Dear Ahmed, please can you explain this in layman's terms? I have scanned photographs of models that I have made in the past (yes, I did actually make models once). My sisters Scannerella & Computerella kindly installed their Agfa scanner on my computer. The images are stored as things called j-pegs, but they appear to be very large. None of the programmes on my computer appear to be capable of condensing them, or I don't know how to do this.

      If I want to set up my own gallery, please describe to me the actual physical or electronic properties required to be able to fit on this website (hopefully in terms I can understand).

      Many thanks, Terry (Caravellarella or Computer-illiteratarella)

      Because LíOR…AL keeps telling me Iím worth it..........

      Or maybe itís MAYBELLINE...............

      Which image-editing software do you have? I think Microsoft "paint" comes standard with Windows. For one thing check the dimensions of the image. If it is more than 1024 pix wide, then it should be reduced. Any bigger than that won't fit on most computer screens anyways and you have to scroll to the right to see the image. That in itself will reduce the image file size, but there are other ways to do it without losing too much in quality. Again, it depends on which software you have.

      Thanks Ahmed, my poor old computer has Microsoft Photo Editor, but I don't think it can compress files. My computer also has a nasty habit of saving images as HTML files or word documents, even when I don't want it to. Do I need Adobe instead?

      No, you shouldn't have to buy anything to re-size and optimize images. See if this site can give you some help with Micro$oft Photo Editor: http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Delphi/6470/photoed.htm

      Thanks for your help Ahmed. Another sister, Gadgetarella, has given me an Adobe Photoshop; so let me see what I can do with that..........

      Best, Terry (Caravellarella).

      Hello,

      I was uploading some pics of my last finished model, an Airbus A340. But after just one pic, I couldn't upload any more pics. The files are just about 43 kB, which should be allowed.
      When I delete the file from the A340 album I can upload a new one in it's place.
      Is it possible I've too much files on my account? I can't really imagine that, because I've just six albums and I've seen members with over 20 albums?

      Please, help me out


      Regards,
      Jelle

      Hello Jelle,
      Yes, unfortunately you have used up almost all your allowed file space of 2MB. You are at 97% and that's why it's not allowing you to upload another one until a photo is deleted. You can upgrade to Upper Deck membership here: http://www.airlinercafe.com/view.php?v=upper_deck which will give you 10 times more file space. With this upgrade you get a 20MB of space, don't see any ads while surfing the site, and you support the site. Thanks for your support.

      Regards,

      ahmed

      Hi Steve,
      Welcome to airlinercafe. All photos uploaded to the database will be in your My Photos section. Photos can only be added to a photo album after they have been approved. I see your photos in queue and will approve them shortly. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

      Regards,

      ahmed

      You're welcome. Too large as in file size, or dimensions? Dimension wise you're ok up to 1600px wide. File size they were fine. Good job on the model.

      Hi Steve,
      The Member Galleries is a little more trickier. You create a folder, set is a public and Gallery and then upload photos into it. You can read more about it here: http://www.airlinercafe.com/plug.php?e=faq&q=9 The Member Galleries are for showing work in progress or other items related to modeling. For finished models, the database is the best place to put them, like you have done already.

      I'm hoping that everyone will move their photos of finished models to the database and delete them from the Member Galleries section. Some people have uploaded the same photos to both the database and Member Galleries section, I don't know why, but it's really a waste of space.

      Regards,

      ahmed
