Photo Gallery and Chat


12-19-2004, 10:36 AM

Hello everyone,

We’ve just added the Photo Gallery and Chat area in Timog Forum.

The Photo Gallery ( is where all members can put their pictures. The first three folders, People ( ), Places ( ) and Others ( ) are for everyone. Anyone can contribute their own pictures inside these folders. Below that, in the Member’s Albums ( ) folder, all members can make their own personal folders. You can set your own folders so that only you can put your own pictures there or allow other members to put their own.

Suppose you make a personal folder called “Party Pictures” about a recent party of your group. You can set it so that other people who came to the party can contribute their own pictures, too.

We’ve also put sample pictures there for browsing. Allowed extensions for pictures are jpg, gif, png, jpeg and bmp. Maximum dimensions: 600x600 pixels and 100KB. We recommend medium-quality jpg (about 60% quality) for pictures.

The Chat area is for, well, chatting. It’s a simple chat room and should be useful for other members who may need it. Only registered members can access the chat room.

There might be bugs in these areas. PM me if you bump into glitches. For assistance in using the the Gallery and Chat, please post in the Feedback & Questions forum. Thanks.

i changed the file size limit from 80K to 100K. that should prevent “file is too big” errors in the gallery. physical size is still 600x600 pixels. i also recommend the “save for web” feature of many graphics programs like photoshop elements as suggested by Paul earlier. you can easily set the file size as you’re saving the file.
