[ADMIN] Posting Photos
- Hi Calbirders,
Siobhan asked if she posted her photo correctly. We used to have guidelines
that worked before Yahoo added the Photo section to the website. Most
photos are still in the Files section, but I'd like to get them all
together in the same section. Since Photos is the obvious place, that is
where they should go.
This morning, I added a set of photo albums divided by bird families or
groups of families similar to the folders in the Files section. I then
moved all the photos already in the Photos section to the appropriate
folders. Please feel free to create sub-albums if you have a group of
photos of a single bird or group of birds.
Yahoo does not show all of a long photo name in the thumbnails, so please
put the species name first in the photo name, so we can easily find your
photos. For example, one photo was named "Lassen Co Falcated Duck". That
name only showed as "Lassen Co..." so I changed the photo name to "Falcated
Duck - Lassen Co"
When you add a photo, please answer yes to the question asking if you want
to send an announcement to the group. This will send an email to the group
with a direct link to your photo so it can be found easily.
Now for the minor problem. We have 4 of photos in the Files section which
should be moved to the Photos section. Unfortunately, there is no easy way
to do this automatically. Each of us with photos in the Files section will
have to upload those photos again, and then delete the photos from the
Files section. I will then go through and delete empty folders in the Files

- I lost my 3x teleconverter for my Nikon Coolpix camera while looking
(unsuccessfully) for the Painted Bunting Saturday afternoon/evening.
It is black, triangular shaped. I retraced my steps as much as I
could remember them, but did not find it.
