Uploading Pictures to Gallery
This tutorial will help you setup your album on the IAH Gallery.
First, click on the Gallery in the menu on the left side of the IAH page, as shown below.
Now, the Coppermine Gallery page should be displayed. Look at the top right hand side of the page. Do you see Admin Mode like the example below ?
If Admin Mode is shown, then you are in User Mode. You must change to Admin Mode. Click on Admin Mode & soon, you will enter Admin Mode. Now, Coppermine Gallery page should display User Mode. If so, then you are in Admin Mode and you are ready to proceed further.
Time to create your albums. Please note that you MUST create atleast one album to upload pictures. Look below the Coppermine Gallery logo for Create / Order my Albums button & click on it.
Now, you should see the Album Manager screen shown below. Click on the New button.
The Album Manager will create a new Album with the default name New album.
Now click in high lighted area on the picture below change the default name to something more meaningful. I have changed it to Planted Tank. When users want to view galleries, the initial screen would show your name & the name of your albums. So, user name as part of album name is redundant. Click on Apply modifications when you are done.
Now, a confirmation screen like the one below will be displayed. Click on OK.
Now, coppermine Gallery informs you that your album name has been created with the name you have specified. Click on Upload picture.
Upload picture screen like the one below should be displayed. A drop down box with the name of your album will be displayed. If you have more than one album, you can click on that button & select the album to which you want to upload your pictures.
Next, let's see how to specify or select the picture you want to upload. If you know the full path of the file which you want to upload, then you may click in the Picture input box & type the file name.
But it's far easier to select the file name from a list. To select a file, click on the folder icon on the right side of the picture input box. See high lighted area in the picture below.
A file selection window will open & list of files in the current or default folder will be displayed. Click on the file you want to upload & then click on OK.
The filename of the selected file should be filled in the Picture text input box.
Next, press TAB & move to the Picture title input box & type a suitable title for your picture.
Then, press TAB again & fill in the description. Suitable description will ensure viewers appreciate your picture. Then press TAB & fill in the keywords. Keywords are very important for searches. If you are uploading pictures of your Blue Diamond Discus, then enter Blue Diamond Discus here. Keywords must be seperated by spaces.
After you finish entering all the details, take a moment to check everything for correctness, do a spell check & grammer check. All OK ? Then click on Upload Picture button. You should now see the Send Conformation Box. Check if filename is OK & then click on Send Files.
Your file will be uploaded in a bew minutes & then it will be displayed for your viewing pleasure.
