casey and anonymous:
That's how I'm doing it also. In the past, in my old photo log, I had my images all like this:
That's not so great for this EXHIBIT method now, and I haven't moved my old photo log yet ... not sure what I'll do with it, waiting for more gallery features with EXHIBIT.
So what I do now is this schema in my "images" directory:
So then in that folder I'll put related images.
I can have more than one folder per day that way, and keep them nice and neat, making sense. Besides that, I am using a digital for most of my day to day pictures, so I don't fool around renaming them, I just dump them onto my harddrive into folders for their own day, then resize them with photoshop, make thumbs, and upload via SFTP, [nice interface, nicer than FTP!] really it's a matter of dragging a folder from my harddrive over onto the SFTP display for my website.
Good to go, create and save a new post, then add the pictures in.With EXHIBIT Choose the one directory specially and easily put together for that post and add them all at once to that post. If there's one I don't like afterall, it's easily removed singlely.
Now this way works swell compared to what I did with MT, manually doing everything ... with a little good code in the templates to take some of the manual junk away, but I had to create a new post for every photo. And copy the photo data into two fields. And forget about having a place to see what they were, it was just plain see-nothing, hope you got it right-ness. Well, really double checking my folder to see how I had them there on my computer, a mirror image of what was on FTP without being logged onto that.
OK, so this way, with EXHIBIT, you have a visual thumb of the images when you add them to the post, right in the editing interface. And there are no picture paths needing to be coded. :)
whomever anonymous with smilie is: telling me to take some rest; hmm, that's what I'm doing! :) This is dream rest for me, working for fun on the 'puter, with the house near 100 degrees and finally having a fan of my own to blow on me. Why move?
Also I'm gungho on getting WP up to speed in taking over ALL my MT installations, so this one weblog is getting everything I can think of done to it, and these support forums are like home to me now. Better to be here than to be where I almost called home, (textpattern) :-O Not a bad thing txp, but WP is more fun and educational, which is the most fun of anything to me! I'm a junkie to learn new things.
