    Hello gentlemen,

    thanks to our dear member Milo, we now have a great and exhaustive tutorial explaining in detail how to use this brand new gallery module!

    the tutorial is split in two parts :

    the public tutorial (on how to use the gallery as a visitor, to display showcases, rate pictures, to post comments…)
    http://mithril.faerylands.eu/mithril_gallery_tutorial_public.pdf

    the admin tutorial (for those who asked for editing access and can create and manage sub-albums, upload pictures, edit descriptions and tags)
    http://mithril.faerylands.eu/mithril_gallery_tutorial_admin.pdf

    If there is something you don’t understand or you want more information don’t hesitate to ask!!
    this module is now open to you all (who asked for it and registered) to upload/edit/manage :)

    (NB: i had almost 150 “spam/bots” comments already (as I allowed for public comments…) so I added a “captcha” verification when you post comment, in order to prevent Orcs from commenting ;)

    Thanks for kind words Master Turambar 😆

    I raise my glass to Master Gildor for the new gallery. This is perfect tool for showing everyone’s work on mithrils.

    Very well done, the both of you!
    I can upload (works) I can sort and edit the images (works) I press apply after I changed something! :D

    Now I go to the gallery and it shows no new pictures???? I go to edit the gallery and all the pics I’ve uploaded are there????
    DO I NEED STRONGER GLASSES? :(

    When you go back to your gallery, you may need to refresh web page (Ctrl F5) as your browser sometimes keeps images in memory.

    Do not worry Master Caster, I can see all images you have added and sorted.
    Great work I see and I hope to see more in the future.. (remember Nori?)… who knows ?:rolleyes:

    yes it is purely a matter of refresh on your web browser , a F5 should do the trick without problem :) that does not mean other don’t see it ;) just that you need a refresh :)

    well now that the gallery is up and working I will begin, from January and forth, to close topics from the Mayor samwise section.(not delete, for history reason, but just “close” them)

    I encourage you to save or retrieve or get back all the pics you posted there, using the “upload image” section, and delete them by yourself in order to make some “cleanup” of your personal repositories
    (I don’t ask to erase everything of course!!! only pictures that are meant to be moved from mayor samwise, to the new gallery… other pictures are meant to remain indeed!)

    Done it!

    Great tutorial. I think I made no mistakes uploading my images.

    I just have one question. The picture of all my subalbumbs is a croped image from the original photo. But I can not select what part of the photo is croped, it is done automatically. And in some cases, a lot of sky is showned with just the tip of the heads of the miniatures. How can I select what to be showned in the albums thumbnails?

    In admin tutorial, i wrote 1 step about thumbnail crop and selection. Page 18 ;)
    For choosing default image, either check 1 image in images tab or use combo box in album edition.
    For images size, use crop thumbnail in images edition tab

    Ummm… sorry Milo but I am like the Ori in the Hobbit movie… you know what I mean.

    My problem is not the thumbnail of the picture itshelf, neither to choose a picture to be showned as introduction to a gallery. My problem is that the picture that I choose to be the front of a gallery is cropped atomatically and only shows a third of the whole pic. For example my gallery “on the way to mount doom” or “Merry & Pippin captured by the orcs” shows pictures with a lot of sky and just part of the minis. Once inside the thumbnail of the picture looks ok. It is just the front of the galleries.

    that’s one of the limitations of the gallery alas :(
    the “head pic” of the gallery is automatically cropped to be centered and there is nothing you can do for THIS head picture . that’s why I always choose the best picture possible to be the head pic as not all of them are elligible because of this cropping…

    Ok. No problem. I will try to choose another pic.

    Thanks

    Sorry Master Ori, I did not read your question correctly. Yes, as Master Gildor said, only solution is to choose an image which center focus is on minis instead on surroundings.
    By the way, MMP gallery looks great now it is filled with so many mithril fans artworks. :D
