Drag-N-Drop and More added to photo galleries

A major set of new features have been added to the site Galleries:

1. Drag and Drop - just browse the photos anywhere on your computer, click on them and then drag them to the window on our gallery screen. Select one file or as many as you want (within the limits of the number of photos allowed per album).

2. Auto resize and optimized transfers. No need to worry about images being too large any more! Our Java applet will automatically resize the images before uploading them to speed up transfers. The original image on your hard drive is not changed.

3. Thumbnail progress. See a thumbnail of each photo as it uploads.

4. Percentage progress. A progress bar showing the percent of the transfer displays during the uploads.

Note that you must have Java 1.4 or greater on your computer (most Windows computers don't). If you don't your browser may prompt you to install it. If you get a security warning, its only because the applet needs to be able to load the images from your hard-drive, please allow it to do so.

Users with browsers that don't support this functionality may still use the old browse button interface.

Thumbs up

I just tried the drag-n-drop, WOW! It uploaded twice as fast as the browse method and couldn't have been easier. My only complaint . . .the stock photo in the box where you drop the pic's should be a Superduty. Seriously Ken, that's a great feature.

Ken does this feature make load up times eaiser on Dial-up users when they view pics that are inserted into post/threads from the galleries ?

more users are attaching images in posts now , which is harder on the dial-up users, load times suck even on digital dial-up at 52k when pics are attached,

or would the use of thumbnails be better?

It has no impact on download speeds, only on uploading to your galleries. Thumbnails are preferable for dialup users. This is getting to be less and less of an issue, as broadband usage as of last month is at 72% in the USA.
