Hi Jase,

I've repeatedly offered to post things on the NANFA website for folks.
Let's just say the <ahem> need, hasn't made a demand for some software
intervention ;)

And I hope it doesn't come across that I'm being a huge stick in the mud
about this (maybe just a little one :). I just see this as a technological
solution (read: complication) to a problem that doesn't exist.

Perhaps the most that should come of this is placing my email address on the
e-list webpage to contact if you have pictures to post.

There's always Shutterfly for people too, if they want to keep their
galleries in order and print the pictures off, make 'em pretty with their
tools, etc.

My sister started using it once she got sick of me whining about her sending
me 15 or 20 TERApixel, overexposed, pictures of her lil' brat in an email
and blocking up my account.

She's been really happy with it, and we're back on speaking terms ;) lol

> Hi All,
> Sounds like there are a lot of questions surrounding the idea of a NANFA
photo library, especially around copyrights and usage guidelines for
submitted photos. I think I was just tossing out a potential technological
solution without realizing all the "real world" issues that it'd raise.
> Peter tells me that it'd be quite non-trivial to set up PHP Gallery on
NANFA's site (based on the current setup it runs on). Todd brings up very
good concerns about jumping headlong into a solution that may prove
burdensome to maintain in the future. There's also a question about whether
there's really an unmet need here -- are folks not sharing photos because
they don't have an *easy* way to get them online?
> I hope to have my home web server back up and running soon, including PHP
Gallery. When I do, I'll give a holler and see if anyone's interested in
playing around with it to post some photos (convention, maybe?) If it seems
useful, that might be the right time to think more if it's the type of
solution NANFA is looking for.
