Photo Gallery Launched

Post by AdminJeff » Mon Feb 04, 2019 3:44 pm

After literally dozens of hours, I'm finally ready to reveal the new PHOTO GALLERY.

Please keep in mind that the features you see are what we get. There aren't other ways to arrange things. Best way to figure it out is to use it!! You cannot break anything. I've tried.

just click the Gallery link in the upper right of the forums:

Each user can have their own personal Photo Gallery. See the FAQ for more info.

A simple FAQ is here in the Photo Gallery Discussion Forum:

https://www.modeltfordclubofamerica.com ... =15&t=1094

A discussion Forum for the Gallery and all sub-galleries is here:
https://www.modeltfordclubofamerica.com ... /index.php

You can easily navigate to the other forums by clicking ONE link

The Member Photo Section needs the most help. Find the year of your car and post the best picture you have of it.

At first I couldn't find the link but once I signed in it appeared. This is a nice feature thanks for adding it to our forum. It is also nice to see Rich Eagles paintings have their own section in the gallery.

Isn't it neat Denny? I think it will be a nice addition to the forum. I was pleased to be asked to try it out. Jeff put a whole lot of time in making this work. We are lucky to have all the good help here on the forum.
When did I do that?

Hi Jeff,

That looks great.

Is it possible to create a Model T Ambulance photo album that everyone can post photos to? I've got a few interesting photos and I'm sure others do too.

ANYTHING is possible. How about something just slightly more generic to hold all the pics? ”Specialized Model Ts? I can have as many subsections there as you want including ambulances, dump trucks, depot hacks, etc.

I’m open to any and especially ALL suggestions.

As I understand it.

You can add photos to a related existing category only.
Unless admin creates a new specific category.

Would it be possible to post unrelated photos (no category) in the regular forum ?
Possibly if a "worth while" subject, it could be archived to the gallery later by admins.

Just seeing if anything sticks... :)

Thank's Jeff, a "Specialised Model Ts" folder with subfolders for different categories would be great.

A few sub categories to start with might be:

Ambulances
Train_de_la_Croix_Rouge_[...]Agence_de_btv1b9038271c.JPEG
Amphibious Model Ts
Hydro-Motor Car.jpg
Livingood 4WD Conversion

Excellent! The old gallery was severely handicapped by the postage stamp size restriction, so it's wonderful to see the pictures here fill the screen. Very nice. It's too bad some folks set their cameras to take little pictures.

Ooh. John, you do have some interesting photos to share! Cool. That first pic of the ambulance heading up the rails into the train car.
Holy cats! I hope the T rails were stopped against a tie!
Me? I'd start a "Clunkers" section to highlight the clunkers out there, like mine that still happily live! :)
Thanks Jeff! You guys and your work here does NOT go unnoticed.

Would a World War I thread be worthwhile? There are some interesting photos out there.

Just thought of another one. How about a section for pre-T Fords?

Pretty much! I’ll organize the Gallery into meaningful headings once we nail down all the categories you fellas want to see. I even put one up for our better halves - Vintage Clothing. I’ve seen how some of you dress. We need all the help we can get!

Jeff has been most generous with his time and instruction to get this going.
Much Thanks.
There is the capability to add comments to the gallery images if desired also.

Hi Jeff, may I suggest four more categories:
1) Agriculture (tractor conversions and other specials)
2) Aftermarket Items (wheels, details etc)
3) Adverts, cards, sundry advertising related. (Not to repeat the documents on the MTFA Encyclopaedia, but rather for pictures/ scans of old joke cards and advertising themes, pictures of Ford sales placards etc).
4) TT truck related (oh I like trucks :-0 )
Thank you for putting this great resource up.

Jeff,
I vote for a section on "rust";) All my model Ts are original and left out in the weather.

Jeff,
Thanks for all your work on this!!!

I went to add photos and see that I don't have permission. I like that you did that because I think that will keep the quality to the gallery photos up so that people will really enjoy them. I did figure out how to make my own gallery photos and added these two.
