22 August 2017: simplified image uploads
Our technical team continues to work on enhancements to the website. Many of those in the past week relate to our internal admin systems, helping us to get the news out more efficiently and keep other areas of the site up to date, but one important fix relates to the focus of last week’s ‘Site Tips and Tricks’, Galleries.
When using the photo uploader, after your first image has been submitted it’s now possible to upload subsequent images using all the same details – everything from species name, date and location to equipment and your name will be auto-filled in the submission form, making it a simple and much more rapid process to upload multiple images of the same bird taken at the same time. This improvement was requested by some of our many regular contributors, and will allow everyone to get more of their images up onto the site in significantly less time than previously. To see what’s been uploaded in the BirdGuides community recently, click the following links to our Birds, Butterflies & Moths and Dragonflies & Damselflies Galleries.
