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.

You'll have noticed a few changes! Hopefully everything is still working, but there will be ups and downs as the special circumstances of the Orkneycommunities version of this Image Library system are accomodated.

In particular the Large Versions of pictures may come and go, as an elegant means of getting them onto Amazon's low-cost bulk hosting platform is investigated, along with a means of testing if they actually exist. The text link to them below the picture description is a stopgap at present. The large versions of pictures up to number 15000 are currently not accessible, but don't worry they are still there (and backed up on DVD).

In the fullness of time it'll be possible to attach pdfs, sound clips and even short video clips to pictures, so watch out for that. Click on the Random Pic link at the top and see what you get. Use it to plan your holidays in Orkney!

Businessmen and women of Orkney: you can now advertise in the column on the left where the Google Ads skyscraper is, and become an Orkney Image Library sponsor. The ad will generally consist of a 120 x 120 (pixels) or 120 x 80 graphic linking to your site, with your ad also appearing with 5 pictures of your choice! Contact me and stir me into making up the pricing.

Seriously, the sponsors and Google Ads help keep this all going and let us develop both the image library and member's site.

Constructive criticism welcome, add it on the Guestbook!

Cheers
Steven
