Photo Gallery.
« on: April 16, 2008, 04:01:11 »
I know that it is early days for the forum, and it is coming on leaps and bounds from its first inception. but I was wondering whether consideration was being given to adding a dedicated photo gallery to the site.
I quite often see nice tempting photos on the LH side of the screen but I have to wade through lots of posts before I find it and quite often my attention will have been caught by something else and I will never get as far.
The gallery could be further sub divided into the different catergories of tugs, harbour, coastal, deep sea etc, etc.
I appologise in advance if as a newbie I am stirring some murky waters, I am also quite ingnorant as to what it would take to set this up.

Hi Peter,

Ideas always welcome !

We are in the process of sorting a gallery for the members, its quite a big job as we have over 1600 pictures on file ..and being added to daily. We are just sorting and thinking about the format the gallery should take, it will be coming at some point in the future.

As regards attaching links to the pics seen in the left hand column ...very difficult to do as they are being pulled out at random from the attachments file and the attactments file just see's them as images and does not know which topic or posting they originate from ....hence trying to sort a gallery with heading and subheadings.

Leave it with us and its something we can continue to work on and hopefully we may be able to launch something in May sometime.

Thanks for your contributions.

Regards

TugMaster

You cheeky blighter Footrub Footski   :o

I've got some good ideas for a gallery coming up, one being perhaps a members login so you can have your own album within the gallery ...ie we host ALL your tug pics !! and other members can view general Forum pictures kept on file or personal albums...what do you think ? ...I'm just in the middle of setting up a big corporate website... as soon as thats done I'll have a bit more time to sort something.

Hi Tuggy - talking of cheeky blighter's ...

Is this going to be along the lines of "Model Boats Gallery" ? - Where members can have a number of "Albums" which they can dedicate to a particular build project (there by keeping them all together) and have a 2nd/3rd album for other photos or even another build.  If so, it was a great idea I thought of months ago !

Cheers - Ken

Hi Peter:
Enough said is right.
Mike Holmes seems to be every womans 'dream man', over here!
We're all sure he could 'whip up' a perfect model tug, built from claulking and expanding foam! ;D
As for Blue Murder, never seen it.

Cheers

Peter.

The guys on the tug cranked up their Hammond and started praying for jet turbine engines to get back home quicker?

Sorry, OT again but couldn't resist!

Andy,

you have just jogged my memory, whilst looking at the unmentionable photo, in the same thread there is two photos of you tinkling the ivorys.
The first is obviously your home organ with a leslie on your right, I was trying to identify the organ, initialy I thought A110 but there aint enough keys per manual, no pre-sets and the draw bars are in the wrong place.
The second is your school organ?, looks a bit of a beasty fully programable but I am stumped on make and model.
