    I just clicked through to "Albums" under Media. What a great idea! Colin's street project would be a great place to included in Albums. My hiking "I was there" snaps should probably be in an album. A great way to organize various themes we might be working on and sharing a body of work rather than just singles that have no context.

    Give it a try. I think it's a great under used feature of Photrio.

    Ok, maybe I spoke to fast. How the heck do you create a new Album and drop photos into it.

    Looks like:
    1. choose "add media"
    2. then choose "add to album"
    3. then when it asks which album, choose: "create an album"
    and a dialog box pops up to create the album.

    My question is whether images added to albums still show up in the "latest gallery photos"... for a while the "latest gallery" was getting swamped by people adding to albums.... I might make an album of salt prints if they won't all show up on the "front page" as I'm adding them...

    i think if you move them they don't appear on the front page its all done in stealth mode
    but if you add them " fresh " its like anything else that is added as new media

    I feel if we can figure out how to use this feature it could really benefit we the users and Photrio as a whole.

    I created an album called Hiking. It should have 12 photos in it. Can someone check to see if you can see all 12 for me please?

    Me too. I was hoping maybe you'd removed your pictures after testing it. However, the icon that represents the gallery goes through a little "slideshow" of a number of photos..( thumbnail sized )

    When I click on the "Albums" tab in Eric's Profile, I see two choices.
    The one titled "Hiking" takes me straight to a bunch of images.
    The one titled "Member Album by Eric Rose" takes me to a message that says: "no media has been added yet""

    Do you have digital enabled? That is the only thing I can think of. Beyond that it's a Sean issue.

    This is what I see. As you can see I have it set to "everyone can see".

    :redface: Didn't even occur to me that they might be digital. Sorry about that. They look great.

    I seem to be prone to false alarms lately.

    Well I'm glad we got that sorted out. I have everything enabled so I don't miss any really great stuff which I would.

    That implementation is problematic - it should instead say something like "you have chosen to exclude some or all of the type media in this Album".
