I'm trying to find a work-around to the problem issue with uploading Albums.

This is a folder on my Google Drive that I would love feedback on whether it can be viewed from here or not?

Thanks a million

Hi Hazel, I can see it perfectly and they are beautiful photos!

JoanG JoanG 13 November 2017 17:58:08

Yes, lovely photos Hazel. They reloaded a few times while viewing but I could see them all.

Very visible. I won't even ask how you did that. LOL.

Like Joan, Hazel they reloaded a few times while viewing.

So what's the verdict? Is the reloading so annoying that it isn't worth it?

It's not as useful as the albums on the site but at least it will stay where it is and be still available if you want to look back at something. I suppose giving a title to the journal with the link "October Album" or something like that would help.

I can put up instructions if anyone is interested!

Hazel, it WORKS so well.  Not a bother.  Perhaps its because I’m on apple. Those are the very best pictures I’ve seen on this site.  Very clear.  Great colour.  Fabulous garden.... all due to Google Drive??? 

Such lovely Mich. daisies.  Can you add titles to each picture?  

Yes please, do put up the instructions. I already have that app.(?) but have never used it.

Great work-around! When they appeared as a list in My Drive, I did Ctrl A to select them all, then, right clicked, and chose Preview from the drop-down menu. Worked like a dream, and no re-loading even though I went through the process twice. Congratulations to our problem-solving genius!

PS Lovely autumn colours too.

No bother here opening them on my iPad or iPhone. Great photos. I'm wondering if the new site will have our old journals. I'm going to post that on Craig's update journal. I would love a copy of mine if they were to disappear. Although I've saved a few on Google Chrome ;)

Glad it seems to be working! I'll try and do a fairly simple set of instructions later!

Fleurette - I have tried to put names on the daisies I know for sure - the others are either second plants of the same variety. The pink ones don't ever come out true on my camera so you'll have to use your imagination! One for which I have no name is IMAG0607 which is a real treasure - low growing, gets a bit of mildew but the flowers are so plentiful they cover it up! Only grow about 30cm and never need staking!I'd love to know what it is called. I have no note in my database as to where I got it either!

PS  Hazel, the reloading only occurred when I was viewing your photos on my phone yesterday.  I looked at them again on the laptop tonight and they came up just fine, so would love the instructions please.  I've never used Google Drive though I do have Chrome as my internet browser.  

Like Jackie, I'd hate the thought of losing our existing journals and albums when we move to the new site.
