Hoy becomes Hoy and Walls

By popular request the area formerly known as Hoy in our Area categories has been changed to Hoy and Walls. I hope this meets the approval of the folk from Waas.

You could do that in the 60s appparently! Jim Eunson has posted a series of pictures from a scrapbook detailing this operation, and the first half have been uploaded to the public area of the site today. Come back tomorrow for the rest of these fascinating pictures!

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.

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!
