Use the Latest Additions button

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.

Improved site

The 10-15-20 option was missed, so has been reincarnated, in an IMPROVED form- see below the comments list for the expanded options.

Also the 'Back' link has been reinstated by request, so I hope that is helpful.

Duff comments links have been fixed where notified, I hope.

Large versions of pictures are now available where possible.

The Search facility is not up to scratch yet, but is being worked on.

It is now possible to add pdfs, audio clips and indeed movie clips to pictures. Contact me if you are interested in this.

The Google ads help keep us in business, but if any local business wants to advertise, we have a system which will support paid ads in place of some of the Google ads. Give me a shout.

The Admin system is far better.

The site is much more graphical, so people have a better chance of stumbling across pictures they might like.

Future upgrades will be easier to implement, and more regular.

Our hosting costs will ultimately be reduced.

So as far as I am concerned, the Image Library is now improved. The old one is not coming back. If people don't like aspects of the new style, if they can tell me what bugs them then there is a chance that something can be done about it, as can be seen. That is what constructive criticism is all about.
