I feel like a total pea-brain here, but I think I accidentally deleted an entire gallery when I was trying to move it to link under my main eBay pics gallery in scrapbook!

This sub-gallery was titled "eBay Print Pics", and it held all the photos in my eBay listings, which are now empty!!!!! Ahhhhhh!

Is there a way to recover this gallery? http://pics.livejournal.com/goldleafgoddess/

Also, I have tried using several of the clients iPhoto uploader, and WebPhotos Pro...the first quits after trying to load more than 1 small pic, and the second I can't get to work, (user stupidity I'm sure) because I can't seem to find the ftp address, and when I create a gallery titled "Live Journal", put in my username and password as suggested, in the "test" run, it brings up an error saying : error: invalid host address...

My main goal is to be able to upload my artwork into scrapbook galleries and do it with a group of related photos at one time. I'd be happy just using the scrapbook upload with 10 images at atime, if you didnt have to enter them in one by one. Tedious when you have 50 pics to upload.

Ok, IF I am unable to recover the gallery:
I have been re-uploading ALL of the jpgs from this gallery from my files, one by one....(I have 18 art prints...about 4 pics in each listing) into a NEW gallery titled "eBay Print Pics".....so..

Will my eBay listings be able to find them?(I'm a newbie, have mercy) or will I have to go back into each listing and place each pic into it again, one by one ?

*ok I'm going to go cry now*
P.S.....I love this place.

It's been a long while since I've ebayed, but I thought I'd throw my 2¢ into the mix.

Most likely, when you wrote your listing, you hardcoded the pictures with an <IMG SRC=""> and because the Scrapbook images are named based on what looks to be a database number, the SRC="" has changed. I know that ebay allows edits, but offhand, I don't think it'll let you edit the original listing and you can only append something to the end. It seems to me that it may not let you change the original text as an anti-fraud measure and if that's the case; No you won't be able to edit the original <IMG SRC=""> and other than possibly deleting, your only choice would be to tack the new photos onto the end.

Sorry and I hope I'm wrong, but based on my memory of long ago, I'm pretty sure this is right.

I reloaded all of those pics to scrapbook, and I have had to end each listing one at a time, in order to revise, replace the pics, and then had to re-list them. I still have 16 listing to go.

I'm pretty disgusted with lj's scrapbook people that they allow pics to be so easily lost.

It must be fixed since you posted, as I see the gallery and the pictures.

No, ....
I re-uploaded every one of the pics into a folder, and named it the same thing as the first one.

The pics are all still missing from my eBay prints listings. All except two, which I had to revise, and replace one at a time.

I still have 16 more listings to go.

Someone told me if I replaced the pics in lj, they would re-connect in eBay...but they didnt.
