Re: PhotoGallery v2.0 : A new way to view images on Team-BHP

This enhances the experience of using the websites. I used to loathe how clicking on each photo would open a whole new tab on the browser. It used to be PITB on mobile devices.

Thanks a ton for this very useful feature, @Rehaan and rest of the team.

This is an awesome update! There's nothing like binge-watching the photos from travelogues, reviews and discovering hidden gems.

The "Find all pictures by user" is still elusive.

I think for now it is not visible on the home page. It is visible once you click the forums Tab.

Re: PhotoGallery v2.0 : A new way to view images on Team-BHP

This looks wonderful! Thanks for building this!
I love that now I can see all the photos from Travelogues in one place.

A few suggestions from the top of my mind -
  1. Maybe let users add an optional caption to the images. Captions could add context and make images in the gallery more meaningful.
  2. Maybe add a like or + button to images. This could lead to a "Hot Images" section similar to Hot Threads.
  3. Most images contain GPS metadata these days. If we allow users to upload images from, say, Google Photos with optional GPS metadata, we could filter and view images by geolocation as well

Do you mean that you can't find it?

Are you using the older Standard - Blue or Standard - Red skins?

I've just activated it for those 2 skins now

As @jasonbourne said, true - it is not active on the Portal/Homepage navigation as yet (but will be at the time of public launch).

However, I think your situation is different and had to do with certain menu items auto-hiding on narrower screens even when you're viewing the /forum/ sections.

Do try again now...

For sure! Will be trying to integrate auto-captioning, based on text in the post that is "touching" the top or bottom of the image. I think it should work pretty well, and be way more comprehensive and populated than any kind of manual addition.

Definitely considered this... but might start to get too complicated. Will first consider just seeing the "most clicked" images in the Main Gallery as a possible "Hot Images".

This would be really cool for the Travelogues section especially. But for privacy concerns we have always scrubbed the EXIF data that contains geolocation from all uploaded pics (as is the case with most sites/social media).

That Google Photos map view is awesome, but then you have to remember that it's only visible to you in your private gallery.

Re: PhotoGallery v2.0 : A new way to view images on Team-BHP

To be honest, I have very rarely used the gallery feature. But, this update which betters even regular uploads to posts is excellent. I guess I'll be using the photos feature more often now.

As always.. Thank you team for the hardwork and excellent upgrades.

Thanks, can view the "Photos" section now in the Main Gallery :-

PhotoGallery v2.0 : A new way to view images on Team-BHP-screenshot-20231116-144028.png

As mentioned earlier, this new feature is possibly a game-changer in terms of how we view and learn (and drool over ) from the forum.

Thank you for taking the efforts to implement it Retroactively.

This will be super beneficial to explore the supercars thread as well as the pets thread. (Team-BHPians and their Pets)

When viewing photos in the "Thread Gallery" (ie. from the "Photos" button at the top-left of every thread), you will see the following info:

Name:  Screenshot 20231124 113918.png
Views: 73
Size:  5.8 KB


However, when viewing from the MAIN Photogallery, the info shown in place of that is the Thread Title and Posting Member instead.

Maybe in the future we'll add an (i) info button like this which shows more info:

Re: PhotoGallery v2.0 : A new way to view images on Team-BHP

This is really a nice upgrade to view all the pics from just a click. However, I loved the Last unread post feature which has been replaced by this.

Is there a way, you guys can bring back that feature, as it is easy to read the last unread post instead of going to the last page and scroll backwards.
