Default Image/video hosting for all BC Users

Well I finally got the technical issues straightend out with the hosting company and have a bit of excess bandwidth available so why not create an easy interface for BC members to upload and host photos and videos????

Well its done and anyone can sign up.




The address is: http://3800powered.com/gallery/

From there you can sign up as a new user....


You will need to create a gallery first of all, then you can upload the photos into it.

You can either use your browser to upload the photos or a really cool program called gallery remote located here:

http://gallery.menalto.com/wiki/Gallery_Remote



that will allow you to automatically upload the photos straight off your digital camera or hard drive.

The gallery also does fantastic resizing to 800 pixels wide so no one has an excuse to have massive scrollable pictures anymore.


After you upload a photo you can use the forum software to point to the photo:

For example to display this image:



you would need to type in

the "test" part of that URL is the gallery name, then the photo name after that

Note: The server may be a little slow right now...I am working on that...

Which version of gallery are you using?

I love that program and contributed a source module for dynamic zipping, stuffing, and raring when someone elects to download the super large version of the images.

as of right now no, just sign in normally with the password you choose.

There will be downtime (rexes) in the next week or so, just a heads up as I fix a few issues related to how I am hosing the site.
