Each member of the organization may create a Gallery containing their own images.
The maker may request that the Gallery be made public. An administrator must approve
the Gallery for public display by using the menu "Administration" > "Manage Galleries".
If you wish to create a Gallery with images from multiple people it is critical
that you do not attempt to upload images that do not belong to you. You must also avoid
creating a generic account for uploading images since when you upload an image you
automatically become the author of the image.
Let authors have control of their own images and have proper credit for creating them.
Members should always upload their own images whenever possible. If necessary, an
administrator can upload images belonging to another member by properly
identifying the author during the upload process. Extra items display on the "My Galleries"
page for administrators.
The best approach for a Gallery of images contributed by members is to create a
"Shared Gallery". Anybody can create a Gallery and mark that Gallery as allowing
images from other members. When marked in this manner the Gallery will appear in
the Gallery list for all members. They can access the Gallery and add images as if
it was their own Gallery. You cannot, however, delete images from other members
unless you are the Gallery creator.
An administrator can also create a Gallery using images from competitions.
This allows the administrator to select specific competitions or groups of competitions
and use filters to identify images to be added to a Gallery. This is very convenient for
displaying winners of annual competitions on your home page, for example.
Galleries showing the results of competitions appear automatically on the website
via the menu "Competitions" > "Competition Results".
Home Page Gallery
The Gallery that appears on the home page is selected by an Administrator using
the menu "Administration" > "Manage Galleries". Any public Gallery may be selected
for display. The image author and title are displayed with each image.
