Thanks for all the hard work on ScrapBook thus far. I have a thing to nit-pick about, however, and I'm certain that there must be others out there that feel the same as myself. I have been testing ScrapBook using the web, not any client. Will someone let me know if one of the clients actually takes care of my problem?
The problem I have is with the photo ordering method. I find it completely frustrating to have to click each individual placer arrow to get your photos in the desired order in your gallery, especially if you have 50 some photos in one gallery. I've seen some photo hosting services allow a pulldown menu next to the picture that allows you to determine which position you want it to be in (first, tenth, 57th...). Is this feature in the works?
Woah! I must say that I respect what LJ is doing with regard to photo hosting. My... some people are demanding! But that's ok I guess, otherwise why would things progress? Congrats to you ladycoreopsis, and to you LJ!
I don't mean to sound defensive here, but I also would like to point out that I do greatly enjoy and appreciate ScrapBook as well. I also don't feel my post was very demanding at all--but perhaps expressed a frustration I was feeling. I asked if there were clients that did what I wanted, and I asked that the feature I suggested be implemented. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of documentation yet on the ScrapBook website, so I did not see the solution that whitaker
has now posted. There is no FAQ about the web service, so you have to search for every solution on your own.
I'm very happy I made my post, because apparently at least one other person was not aware of this function. So not only did I help myself by asking, but at least one other, and perhaps others who havn't replied as well.
Livejournal is providing a service to paying costumers. As such, there will undoubtedly be MUCH more demanded clients than myself in the future. Livejournal has asked for us to give them feedback, both positive and negative so that they can meet the needs of their clients. I am happy to help out in this endeavor, because I love livejournal and consider myself a loyal and happy customer. They continuously improve the services they provide to me, which is more than I can say for my phone company, my internet provider, or any other service I pay for. My comments on this community have always started with a positive line. The feedback I have provided to them through the web comments has been, in my opinion, positive. Scrapbook hosts over 400 pictures of mine, and it has become the only photo hosting service I use now, despite the fact that it is still in testing phase and that there are free services galore around the internet. I have also filled my own journal with overwhelmingly positive things to see about ScrapBook. I have posted all my vacation photos there, so people on my friends list continuously see the ScrapBook service. Thus, my journal is a good advertisement for ScrapBook and encouraging the people on my friends list (as well as the family I send the photo links too) to buy a paid account and support livejournal.
So, to some up, I don't feel bad making a comment or two here and there if I feel there is something needing improvement.
I am happy that a solution was available. My comment was mostly to support what LJ is doing. For so long they did not offer any photo hosting as I'm sure you know. My point was that they have progressed leaps and bounds in a short amount of time. It was meant to support their effort. Not to diminish the importance of your resquest. Sorry. And once again, I'm happy that you found your solution. Best of luck with LJ in the future.
I did experiment with the text and security page and it does work. You do have to make sure that you do not have any duplicate page numbers though. If you change page 10 to page 12 for instance, you need to re-number your existing page 12 to an unused number or the change will not take place.
If you go to the management page for a given gallery and click the "Text & Security" tab at top, the following page will let you enter in a numeric order number (can be fractional) to order the pictures within that gallery.
Thank you very much! Man, I've been beating my head over this one, because I do have galleries that have 50-60 photos. I like the service a lot and I'm happy that I have sometihng I can integrate into my journal.
