I figured out how to get them into the rotation.

That was our Anniversary Dinner two years ago, our 25th.

I suggest to change the name in something more fancy then "Random Image". First, it's not an "Image", but 4 images
We could use a title like "Our Awesome and Outstanding Members' Phenomenal Shots"! Or something as plain and sober as that.

Well nothing is rotating. Not on the main "Member Photos" OR in the individual pages. I still see the same pics on the main page except for Misc which has no pic. And when I click a category (cooking for example) I see the same pics on page 1 - which are the oldest pics I guess, from 2005 of a pink cake.

I meant get them into the section where they are picked to be shown, randomly.

I am getting many different pics, of course, I only go to that page about 6 times a day. Not a whole bunch of times in a row.

Ahhhh...

I am in Andy's boat. I get the same pics all the time.
For instance, I just created an album last night, I saw a series of pics a few times this morning, the same series with pics of a ham and fried chicken, then mine came up in a new series, now the series of pics I was in is gone and the ham series is up again.
You would think that when one series has come and gone that the query would move onto a new group and not go back to one it has already shown. I was also surprised that a newly created album got one pic into the mix so quickly.

Anyway, that's my thoughts on it. It's a nice feature, but like you said, it needs tweaking. And if it is to be food related, you should have the members clean up their albums and get miscellaneous pics into a different category. There was a picture of chairs last night. Not sure what that was all about

I am more than willing to remove pictures that do not belong in the "Food" Category, but you have to report them. I'm not going to waste time looking for "a picture with chairs."

Tweaking takes time and getting members to change their long established habits or edit existing albums takes even more time. Sometimes forum changes come slooooooowly. Be patient, when this is dialed in it will be a lovely feature.

Just to say I do appreciate your tweaking!
