    Upload to my site is via email only.

    I agree, user self-upload is a much better option but I don’t know how to set this up. :?

    I see that you use coppermine software for your galley and I guess that the user upload script comes with it. I would love to have a user self-upload option on my site.

    Thanks for your post, you have got me thinking, I will look into using coppermine for my gallery. :wink:

    Have you got any tips on setting up coppermine :?:

    Hi

    Thanks for your replies.

    elrick: I will check out the coppermine forum and see if I can get my head around what I need to do to set things up myself.

    Artemis: Yes please. If you could let me have some pics that would be great.

    elrick and Artemis: Would you be interested in exchanging website links with me?

    Everyone else: Don’t be shy, please email your photos to me, I really would like my gallery to grow. Please see my website for details and the email address. Anyone interested in exchanging website links?

    Many thanks, Mark :D

    If it's "your" gallery, why do you want my photos? Where are your photos?

    No offense, but that site is not the most attractive one I've ever seen, aesthetically, and I doubt it's going to make me famous. There are a million and one better sites where I can get a free gallery. Photozo, Deviant art, to name a couple.

    I'm not trying to discourage you, but I think you should realize what you are up against, so you know what you would need to really compete.

    Arty. Think about it for a minute. A guy comes on the forum, and his first post is asking you to email him your photos, so you can get famous.

    Hi

    This is getting interesting.

    Firstly, thanks to Artemis for your support. I have added a link to your site from mine, hope you will reciprocate. Cheers.

    Digital Matt: I am not a professional web designer, I created my site a few months ago as a new hobby, and as I love photography, that’s what it’s about. My site is constantly evolving, if you don’t like it now, you should have seen it when I first started. I think I have come a long way with it, but yes, I can and will make improvements.

    My main aim is to keep it looking simple; I want to show off peoples photos, not flashy web design. (Btw, the photos are mainly mine (Mark van Eerde) I have to start the gallery somewhere).

    As for my “You’ll be famous” catchphrase. Well, I decided I needed a catchphrase and that’s what I came up with. Now, with hindsight, perhaps it wasn’t the best. Can anyone suggest another more suitable? Nothing derogatory. Please be constructive.

    Thanks, Mark

    Goldfoundry, I don't understand why you want other people's photos. Make your website feature your photography. If you are trying to start an online community for photographers you should look at some of the other sites that do that, and the huge backend they have. Are you a programmer? Most of those sites are run by serious programmers. Look at sites like http://www.deviantart.com and http://www.photozo.com.

    Those two are successful. Then look at a site like http://cravingfornature.com/. It has a heavily coded backend, forum, image galleries, web upload, all that stuff, and it failed. It's completely dead.

    I don't think the internet needs another online photogallery / web / forum / photography site, but that's my personal opinion and that's my reason for not wanting to join. I'm not trying to stop anyone else from joining though.
