Re: Fotki help


I've not done that [sign in to see URL] kind of like the alphabetical order.
[sign in to see URL] did find this, and I think we have to create FOLDERS [sign in to see URL] put our Albums in [sign in to see URL] think! emoticon

quote:

[sign in to see URL] Moving an Album to a Different Location

You can move any album anywhere on your account. To do it:

    In the Folder Tree to the left of the viewing window, find the album to be moved and open the folder containing it. (If the Folder Tree is not seen, make it visible by clicking on the narrow vertical bar on the left of the viewing window.)
    In the viewing window, find the album to be moved and select it by clicking either "select" button or the checkbox next to it in the line beneath the album's thumbnail. If you want to move a few albums, check all of their checkboxes.
    When you have selected all the albums to be moved, click "Move Selected To..." in the Folder Menu of the Member Panel.
    In the Folder Tree, open the destination folder, where you want to move the selected album(s).
    On the informstion screen, confirm or negate your choice.
    In case you have chosen "OK", you get to a Confirmation screen and can go either to the destination folder or to the source one.

[sign in to see URL] Sorting/Rearranging Albums in a Folder

Normally, albums are added to a folder in the order you created them, but you can rearrange (sort) the albums by update date, date the photos were taken or by name (alphabetically) at any time.

When rearranging albums, it is possible to specify their ascending/descending order. For example, ascending-order arrangement by date moves older albums to the top and newer ones to the bottom of the list; ascending-order arrangement by name puts albums, whose names start with "A", on the top and those, whose name statrs with "Z", on the bottom. Also, rearranging can be done manually.

To rearrange albums in a folder:

    In the Folder Tree left to the viewing window, find the albums to be sorted and open the folder or subfolder containing them. (If the Folder Tree is not seen, make it visible by clicking on the narrow vertical bar to the left of the viewing window.)
    After the albums are displayed in the album-thumbnail view, click "Rearrange Albums" in the Folder Menu of the Member Panel.
    Select the way of rearranging the albums from the dropdown list of the "Sort Albums in Folder:" field and specify the order of their displaying. To sort the albums manually, select "Manual".
    On the confirmation screen, choose "OK" to sort the albums or "Cancel" to go back to the viewing window. Unless you chose manual rearrangement, your albums are now rearranged.

In case you selected manual rearrangement, you get a to the "Sorting Albums in Folder Manually" screen with the list of your albums' thumbnails and "new position:" field to the right of each thumbnail. Specify a position number for each album and click "Rearrange".

7.3 Folders

Even if you have hundreds of albums and folders on your Fotki account, you will always be able to instantly find what you need, no matter how complex is your account structure.

A good way to organize your albums is grouping those having something in common (a year of creation, a place, a theme, etc.), so that to easily find them at any time. On Fotki, a place to put a number of albums is called 'a folder'. Fotki folders are just like the folders you have in your computer.

To achieve an even better result when organizing photos, create subfolders (folders inside folders), which can contain more subfolders, and so on.

top
[sign in to see URL] Creating a Folder

You can create as many folders and subfolders as you wish.

To create a new folder or subfolder:

    In the Folder Tree to the right of the Member Panel, choose a folder, in which you want to place a new one, and open it, then click "Create New Folder" in the Folder Menu of the Member Panel. (If the Folder Tree is not seen, make it visible by clicking on the narrow vertical bar to the left of the viewing window.)
    In the "New Folder Creation" form, type the name for a folder into the field provided. Folder properties: description, keywords, URL name and password are optional. Click "Add folder" when done.

You can change the name, description and other properties of your new folder or move it to a new location at any time.

top
[sign in to see URL] Folder/Subfolder Name

Since a folder usually contains several photoalbums, its should reflect a feature that is common to all of those albums. It may be year, place, theme, etc. - anything describing the contents of all the albums in a folder. For example, in a folder named "2002", the albums can be grouped, whose photos were taken during year 2002.

Subfolders (folders inside folders or inside other subfolders) are meant for more detailed organizing. Group the content of the "2002" folder into subfolders named, for example, "Me", "Kids", "Friends", etc. and you will exactly know where to find, say, that forgotten picture of your friend Bob, which you took last year.

top
[sign in to see URL] Folder Description

It is folder's short summary. A good way to describe a folder is to list the events covered by the albums collected in this folder, i.e. "Car-expo, "Montreal"; "Rock festival, San-Diego"; "Bob's birthday party, New York".

top
[sign in to see URL] Folder Keywords

they are used by the Fotki search engine, when someone is searching for a particular topic of interest. If a folder's keyword matches the searcher's request, the folder comes up in the search results.

Re:


I was afraid of that. I have so many Greeting Folders that were once under Greetings. I could have sworn that you posted how to make your folders into sub folders when they first wrote to you, it was in their message to you. But I can't find where you posted that.

Oh, and my Fotki account still says "Importing from Photobucket (PurpleSusa) in progress. Please wait.", even though everything is imported and they sent me a message that they are all imported.

Re: Fotki help


Mine says that [sign in to see URL] think it's "stuck" emoticon
But we can do anything we [sign in to see URL] are done.

Fotki said this:
quote:

Hello,
Thank you for your question.

Yes, we can transfer your photos from PB to Fotki. Unfortunately, we have to initiate the process manually, so for export/import we will need your Photobucket login and password. If you wish, for security reasons, you may want to change your password to some temporary one which you can share with us.

We won't be able to keep the same structure you had at PB, we will transfer all albums without "nesting". So you will have all albums in one folder at Fotki. After the transfer is done, you can create sub-folders and move albums/folders around the way you want.

Please let us know if you will have any questions.



Then they also went into detail on how to use the "Share" to get my [sign in to see URL] was rather stumped there... emoticon

EDITING TO SAY:

I added one more message on that line of inquiries. Asking how to take albums and nest others inside. Hopefully they will answer in a day or so. emoticon

They got back to me quick!! emoticon

Here is what I wrote first, then their answer:

FOTKI ANSWER ON HOW to make folders and sub folders

One LAST question....
How does one take albums and add sub albums to them.
Like I have a folder called Smilies, I used to have happy, sad, [sign in to see URL] inside that album, each with their own smilie set.
Do I make a "folder" [sign in to see URL] it, then put all the Albums that go with that in it?

Hello,
Thank you for your question.

Yes, right. We have slightly different logic compare to PB. You can create folders and sub-folders that store albums.
So you create folder first and create/move albums.

Please let us know if you will have any questions.

Have a great time,
[sign in to see URL] Team



[sign in to see URL] looks like we use the link along the left, make a [sign in to see URL]: Smilies, then it is not terribly clear as to whether we can move our albums into that [sign in to see URL] is we have to make a folder for [sign in to see URL] move our photos into the folders.
[sign in to see URL] a folder name, is WAY better than having to upload ALL those photos again! emoticon

Re:


Oh!!! That gives me some ideas to play around with. So I can make a new Greetings Folder, with a slightly different name than my existing Greetings Folder and possibly move my specific named folders into it, like my 4th of July folder, my Sympathy folder, etc.

I will let you know if and when I am successful. It is not high on my priority list, so it won't be tonight.

I noticed those new folder action settings. I looked at them last night.

I am concerned about the same thing. When I finally decide to do something, I will do a very small greetings folder. I think I have one with only a couple things in it, then copy all of their codes and put them in notepad, try the experiment and look at the codes again, to see if they changed. I won't do anything on a grand scale before knowing.

Or, I might write to Fotki first. I would rather experiment I think.

It is really good that they are already in alphabetical order and in the long run I may do nothing.

Re:


I wish that he would take Fotki more seriously, but he is hunting for free sites for people.

I think I am keeping my website, along with Fotki. Fotki is not all that expensive and I think that the website is probably the most stable. At some point, I suppose, I won't be able to afford it and then I will have all of those pictures there. I already have many, many pictures there.

Re: Fotki help


I wish he would at least do a short list of pay ones. A lot of people like us, have had the pay Photobucket. AND I think a lot of the FREE ones out there are changing their TOS so as to not allow 3rd party hosting. I think soon enough, Pastors FREE List, will be all wrong.

I fear you are right. Free picture hosting just costs the companies too much and ad blockers block their revenue.
