I'm delving into pictures that have been bulk uploaded in the past, that I've held back to avoid swamping you with images that are similar all at once. They don't show up in the thumbnails below, which is strictly chronological by the date the pictures were submitted - so you might not see them. But you will if you use the Latest Additions button.
Happy New Year!

A Happy New Year to you all. Contributions and comments welcome as we go into 2017, and far more regular updates of the Image Library. There's a resolution for you! Cheers Steven
Large pictures now back, and comments problem fixed!

The Large Pics facility on the Orkney Image Library of Orkneycommunities.co.uk has returned, and I am pleased to say can in some instances be applied retrospectively (approx 2 years back). Any favourites you want to see large, get in touch and I'll see what we've got on file.

Also there was a short-lived problem about a fortnight ago where comments were added to the wrong pictures. This should be fixed, but if you added a comment between a week and three weeks ago and it hasn't appeared, please add it again.

Have you noticed...

... that the thumbnails down the right of the Image Library home page are now all random pictures?

This is to bring the older picture to new users attention, and give a novel way of browsing. This feature will be enhanced further by having the image title displayed as a tooltip when the mouse hovers over the thumbnail.

This is just one of the first (hopefully uncontroversial) changes that will be applied to make the Image Library better to use.

The search facility has also been improved: clicking Advanced Search above gives a number of options, with new ones added to govern how the results are displayed. Most importantly however is a change in how the search is carried out - now it also encompasses the comments added to each picture, and not just the title and description as before.
