I am quite curious why some people post a lot of pictures and do not add to the POTN gallery or why they add it.

Yes some vote questions might be for fun purpose, because it might be long to read ;)

Feel free to develop your answers (2 choices) it might be very interesting

I never add anything to my POTN gallery. The shots I post are usually to illustrate some photographic point or principle. Most of my shooting is my family, which includes 7 cats and 2 dogs. Nobody wants to see my boring snapshots of my cats.

I stopped adding simply because I really dont want to manage two galleries. There was no easy way to share gallery photos, so for me I dont see a point of it. I can easily share stuff on flickr, but not as easy to share/manage gallery items.

I add images to my gallery for two reasons:

1. for the gear database - meta data can only be searched in images that are in a gallery and I will add an image if I think it shows really nicely what that combination of camera and lens can do. A lot of people ask about how this or that lens performs on this or that camera. So adding images to one's gallery adds information to the gear database and can be helpful to people. Images I add to my gallery for this reason do have to be nice, but they most certainly don't have to be my best.

2. the image is really nice

As the gear database is not mentioned in the poll, I didn't vote. :)

I checked this and the error really means the image extension .jpg~original is not a "proper" image extension so it was rejected. Forums do not allow scripted images or unknown extensions/MIME types.

BTW, what is the purpose of that ~original naming?

I'll make it possible to use that extension with photobucket.com, the update having that code will happen quite soon now. Then your images can be added to the gallery.

EDIT: added the fix already. Please try adding to gallery now.

Better not make guesses what people like until you hear from them. :)
Cat photos are very popular, who does not like cat photos???

Could you elaborate this a bit, please?

Do you mean sharing the image on Facebook etc?

In POTN adding a photo to gallery means the photo is displayed on many places in the forums, and that will lead people to your post. Usually one posts because you want to your photos to be seen and share your thoughts for discussion and comments. Adding photos to your gallery acts as a visual pointer to your posts and as a showcase/portfolio of your photography. If you happen to be added to the best of gallery, that will increase hits to your posts even more.

Then you have a https://photography-on-the.net …embergallery.ph​p?m=118310 which you can share as a link in anywhere.

Thanks Pekka, it's working now ;-)aI have no idea why photobucket add "original" at the end, it is odd.

I mean sharing a photo in multiple threads with IMG blocks. For instance, sharing a photo in a camera gear thread as well as nature thread. If I have a gallery of photos, there should be an easy way to share to multiple threads as inline images rather than grab links from flickr, there should be some way to grab links from POTN, possibly from a floating gallery on the left that exists now when you browse someone's gallery.

Currently, I just see people grab from flickr, no reason to really bother with gallery.

Thanks for the info. Adding photos from your gallery to the post is on the to do list. Not in the next update (in a few days) but I plan to make it happen on the next one.

I'm thinking there should be a floating gallery tab to the left so that it can slide in and out for quick access. Another way to streamline would be a toggle to autogallery; I think it's gotta be dead simple otherwise folks not likely to use it.

I SOMETIMES add... basically when I feel like it or when I think to.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.
