Your Photo Albums
 
Some of us really enjoy looking at all the pictures in the random images that appear at the top of the forum listing page.

A couple of requests to make viewing your photos more enjoyable:

1 Please go back to your photo albums and edit the photo titles to describe what's in the picture. Many photos have a description of "Image 12489" or similar. Not much help. Tell what's in the dish.

2 Make sure all your food pictures are in a cooking related album rather than Misc. or Member's Photos. There are several categories to choose from.

Thank you all for posting some great pics. Keep them coming.

Andy, how do I add a picture to a cooking related album? I go to the albums and select the vegetables album, for example, as I'd like to put my kimchi picture there. I don't see any way to add a picture to that album. And I don't see a way to add a picture to any album except the album I have created.
Help, please.
Thanks.

You make changes to your pictures and albums from your own profile page. There you can select an album, change which DC category it links to and add titles.

Click on your User Name in the upper right where it says "Welcome". Select the album of yours that you want to change. Then you can edit album (to link it to a cooking album) or edit photos (to add a description for the photo).

I can't see how to tell it a DC category. Group is all I see and that's not it.

Once you go to your profile page then click on one of your albums, there is an option to 'edit album'. If you click on that, there is a 'Category' with a drop down menu. There is where you choose a DC photo category.

This shows that you chose "Edit Pictures". You should have selected "Edit Albums"

Aargh! I can't find "Edit Albums". When I go to: "Discuss Cooking - Cooking Forums > taxlady's Profile > Albums"

I see a list of albums and it will let me click an album name and see what pix are in the album. The only other thing I can see that I can do from there is add an album.

I betcha it's something obvious, that I am just not seeing. I did try searching the page for the word "edit", but couldn't find any.

There is a blue bar directly above the first row of photos. In the blue bar on the left is the album name. On the right end of the bar it says Edit Album and Edit Pictures.
