When I see the word draft I think of something temporary. So Im confused about the draft zone here. It seems that when we draft a photo it is moved there but we cant change it IN the DraftZone. We have to re-upload a new version that goes to the top of the gallery. Ill post something I wrote to Eric about how I see this:

----------------------------

Im confused though. You say this new method allows us to keep the comments but that isnt quite right because by uploading the new photo we start with no comments. Comments are left in the draft but nobody will see them. I really dont see much of a difference between this and the "Francis" option. Im still curious why you wont do it the flickr way where we can simply drop a new version of a photo a substitute it for an older. It would avoid the problem of a lot of old photos re-appearing again. Also, I dont see why the "online" option is only once a day in this case, we should be allowed to move photos in and out of draft freely since no new photos are being uploaded.



For example I dropped 10 photos into the draft. That means 10 photos of an old project will re-appear when I start re-uploading them. But the project has 11. With a 10 photo limit how do I draft the 11th? How do I draft another project? What if a project had 20 shots and somebody wanted to redo the whole thing? He couldnt do it because 10 photos would be in the draft, for the other 10 he would have to do the Francis option.



I propose the following:

1. Allow us to change as many photos as we want at the same time. Use the draft zone, allow us to substitute photos and re-load them online. But not to the top of the gallery.

2. If you still want the 1 reupload a day option, then do that but again allow us to do it by drafting a photo, substituting it and "onlining" it without getting it back at the top of the gallery.

In this way we get to keep the comments physically under the photo. And thats what is important.

---------------------------------

So what do you think? I read the arguments from mods, and I remember something about somebody being able to secretly upload offensive things or porn if total freedom was given. Cmon, who among this group would do that? I think that the admins should trust us, you did afterall invite some of us and accept others....you know us. I am all for more flexibility and this I think is crucial. Allow us the flexibility to manage our gallery. It will only be good for PH as it will raise the level of projects and work overall.

I agree with Rafal, with FlickR me can simply re-upload a picture.
I've often dream of such option on TE or here...

I agree. I'd also love a "re-upload" option like on Flickr. In my tryptych shot I forgot to add the white border that's around the other images in the series and I don't feel right about deleting it when there are already comments posted...

I understand that everyone is busy though so if this takes time so be it.

Thanks,

af

Keeping the old version in a submenu would be a GREAT idea in that way people can compare what changed.

Hola,
I would know if it's already the option to upload a picture that it's in the draft folder.
What can I do?

Thanks

je mexprime en Français, sera beaucoup plus facile.
Concernant la possibilité de sortir une photo de notre projet, pour la corriger. Je voulais savoir si on peut la remetre dans le projet, une fois retouché, mais sans devoir la charger comme une nouvelle photo. Car on perde les commentaires qu'ont été donnes.
Che pas si c'est possible ou pas de faire ça.

Merci pour ta patience et le temps passé pour ameliorer le site.

Ciao,
Javier

Javier pour répondre en partie à ta question
dans peu de temps nous allons installer une nouvelle fonction
qui va permettre de replacer une image existante par une nouvelle image modifiéé.
Tout en gardant l'image originale et ses commentaires.

Quoi qu'il arrive, quand tu passes du draft à "online", tu ne perds pas les commentaires! (heureusement)
