I used it to upload a dozen of pictures of Rozsutec, it works very fine.
Few remarks/suggestions (despite I don't really know if I use the latest version)
Hi Eric, sorry I missed this one yesterday, let me answer inline:
I couldn't select the object to attach it to
Ah, that is addressed in version 126.96.36.199, targeted for release tonight.
The description field is perhaps a bit too small with one line
That is fixed in version 188.8.131.52, released yesterday.
Enlarging the application should allow enlarging the description zone only and not all text fields on 1 line
Now recorded as Bug #15.
Why not allowing multiple-select on the file list to enter a common title/description for several pics in the same time ?
I won't do that one now, though it was my idea from the start. I found that it's tough to get the right behavior with that, and I also want to respect some wishes expressed that each photo needs a unique caption. So let's wait and see on that one. It is a good suggestion but lets come back to it later.
A second tool (or check-box) to upload on MBPost ?
Great idea (I think). As far as I know that site needs content...but it also needs users...I have heard that it was kind of overwhelmed by spam?
Well, this shouldn't hide the big quality of your program: simple and efficient... well made ! In which language have you made it ? Did you have to ask the Elves for permission ? Would it be possible to have the source code to "customize" it a bit ?
Thank you very much! It is in C++. I didn't ask for permission, rather I'm choosing to beg for forgiveness. We'll see!
The problem right now with open source is that (in order to earn that forgiveness perhaps), the tool may need additional features or restrictions to satisfy some concerns raised by the Elves. I don't have a full list, but I recognize that there is a lot of uncertainty with such a tool.
One idea I've come around to is to restrict image size by resizing. If indeed too many people abuse the tool and upload too many images, at least they shouldn't kill the disk space. And I think it's time for a conversation about how many Albums we should be able to have. Sites like Flickr have restrictions there that are entirely appropriate (if you pay you get more).
Really, I want to see more Mountain, Area, Route, Trip Report pages. The people making that valuable content are investing a lot of time and I want to support that.
Thanks for all the suggestions and for using the program!
