img src, URL, and original file names

Previous Entry img src, URL, and original file names Sep. 17th, 2004 @ 12:10 pm Next Entry
hi. I apologize if someone's asked this before, but I'm new to fotobuilder, so bear with me:

Is it possible when viewing the pictures to have them display URL and img src info? And also, to keep the original file name when uploading pictures?

These are just some of the things I'm used to from dealing with photobucket, but as some of you may know, photobucket just had the huge crash of DEATh and it's not fixed yet and such. :/ So I remembered about LJ having image hosting and decided to try it out. Except I'm finding it really inconvienient to use for practical, everyday img hosting. O_o Like, I couldn't imagine trying to host a mood theme there and having to painstakingly search out and use the weird little "/000x17tb" code names for the pictures instead of "/happy.jpg" or "/quixotic.jpg".

Unless I'm totally misconstruing the purpose of Fotobuilder, in which case I apologize and just ignore me.

If you're viewing the single image in the album view, you can click on the image to bring up the url for that image. This url will work for <img src="the url"> and any mood theme stuff as well, I imagine. I'm not sure where the image name "happy.gif" etc go when you upload the image, but it seems like they're stripped away. Sadly, it seems like searching out the strange codes is what you'll have to do for now.
Best of luck.

display url and img src info? yes... you can make a custom layout and implement that kinda stuffs...

keep the original filename? no... its not how fotobilder works and yeah, its part of the code that is what makes fotobilder fotobilder. ;)
the basic idea is that if you upload one image and someone uploads the same image... itll only have one copy of that picture on the fotobilder servers but will include the same image file in the galleries of both users but with a different "filename."

its kinda confusing but i do the best i can with explaining it. ^_^

im not totally sure if mood theme hosting would be "everyday image hosting" ... *shrug* ... (i actually just use one of the standard mood themes)

in order to make your mood theme work with fotobilder is to do as you said... the painstaking task of making each mood icon point to the silly code that fotobilder gives you.

hope that helps! :D

good idea...

we've got "post to lj" and "make userpic" ... might be a nifty idea to have something like "convert gal to mood theme" ... itd be tricky and i would have no clue how to figure that out...

maybe like... a tool that is similar to the "edit pics in gal" page... itll list all the images, you put in the text of the mood that you want it to be (or choose it from a pulldown menu with all of the mood names in there) ... hit "go!" and it creates a new mood theme that you can choose from the mood theme creator thingy page.

yeah thats pretty much what i was thinking. you put all the images you want to work with in a certain gallery and then it gives you the option to apply it to different moods.

if you come back to this entry brad said that in the future they will allow you to use text filenames as well as the funky code ones.

well... pics.lj seems to be down for me... anyway... i think if you go to the manage pic page of a pic you can choose the "upload/create userpic" thingy near the bottom.

Filename control is on our list. It'll happen. Those ugly filenames are just defaults which will always work, but we'll let you use other names too for the same files.

ahh... ok.

thatd be excellent.

some of my s2 stuff that broke when my site went down was dependent upon a root url and then it used filenames from that root.

not sure if that made much sense.

anyway... thanks for the info! :)

Photobucket had a huge crash? I've been using it for almost six months and I've never had any problems with them.

Yep, not for everyone, but there was a crash: http://forums.photobucket.com/announcement.php?f=3

It's fixed now, though. Yay! I was suffering, suffering. >_

Can I throw my vote in for this as well?

I have been spending HOURS painstakingly uploading all my mood theme from Photobucket to here and having to click on each and every one and copy its weird little filename is so so so so so tedious.

And it scrambled up all of the images out of the order that I uploaded them in. -_-

A 'set gallery as moodtheme' or 'copy gallery images to moodtheme builder' would be really nice.
