Update Gallery

This page provides all of the different update functionality for the Gallery for album/photo owners and gallery moderators. Just what options appear on the screen depends on the option selected from the gallery menu and whether it is the owner or a moderator. The gallery administrator has the same access to these functions as moderators do.

Add Album

This option allows a new album or sub-album to be created. each Album can be given a title and description. Albums can either belong to a specific person or can be shared. When adding an album moderators also get to select who owns the album.

Edit/Delete Album

For the gallery home page this is option is only available to moderators and only provides access to edit the title and/or description.

For albums within the gallery this option allows the title and/or description to be changed and whether people other than the owner can post photos to the album. If the album is empty then there is also an option to delete the album.

Moderators also have access to change the owner of an album.

Add Photo

This option allows a photo to be uploaded to the gallery. Uploaded photos will be automatically resized to generate both a thumbnail image to display in the gallery and an intermediate size to display when the thumbnail is selected. These images are both watermarked with a small image to identify the gallery. The original image will also be retained but will only be accessible to the owner and those others who have specifically been given access to the full sized images (and the gallery administrator).

The uploaded photo can also be given a title and a description.

Where the image is being uploaded by a moderator the owner of the image can also be changed.

Edit/Delete Photo

Moderators can also change the owner of the photo and can also choose to rebuild the display and thumbnail versions from the original.

Set as Album Cover

This option simply updates the thumbnail displayed for the album to the current photo. While this update is performed by this page, there is nothing to display and the previous page is immediately redisplayed. Videos do not have thumbnails and so do not offer this option.

Where the image is being uploaded by a moderator the owner of the image can also be changed.

Edit/Delete Video

This option allows the title and/or description for the video to be changed. There is also an option to delete the video.

Moderators can also change the owner of the video.
