This Design is Still In Progress
These designs are still a work in progress, and are actively being worked on. While discussion and comments are welcome, please treat this material as such.
There are three ways to add images to your Image Gallery
- Add files from your computer
- Add files from this site
- Add files from another site
Once files are uploaded then it's time to add metadata and tags
- Meta-data and tagging
When are changes stored?
"Wizard"-style multi-page workflows often behave in a all-or-nothing fashion. If we cancel (or time out or close the browser), everything we did from the beginning is thrown away. However, if the Image Gallery application throws away dozens of newly uploaded files along with any titles, descriptions, or tags we've added, we'll have to start from scratch: the back button can't re-upload the files for us!
To keep this from happening, newly uploaded files will instead be stored in the Image Gallery with default metadata. Canceling at later steps of the workflow will only throw away the changes we're currently working on rather than throwing away all our files.
Add Images from your computer
Note: the biggest change here is that deciding where you're adding files from is now done in a drop down from the collection screen. The choices are still from your computer, from this site, and from another site.
