Introducing image grids

A new features of the reset update to the forum software allows you to arrange your uploaded images as a grid. All you need to do is type [grid] before you upload your images and [/grid] at the end. It’s like wrapping your images in brackets with an instruction. This displays your images in a grid and clicking on one enlarges it allowing you to view them as a slideshow. Note the ‘/’ in the closing [/grid]. We will create a short explainer video on the help portal.


Very interesting and thank you for setting this up for us.
I am sure it will be useful for many.
As they say “A picture is worth a thousand words”.

I’m sure @SimonInEdinburgh with his 80,000 pictures will love this.
Me too, actually.

Keep on keepin’ on

Here’s a link to click for my try out, I’m pleased with it. It is easy to use, with a polished look about it:

Down the grid


Thanks for the heads up
@Bobbi I don’t think I’m unique in having lots of images online / on the PC Just the result of 20 plus years of digital photography.
I also have boxes and boxes and boxes of prints and negatives from the 20 years before and I have a little device my son brought me for Christmas 5 years ago for digitising it all but I haven’t started yet!

It’s actually quite hard to find some of the stuff but have been looking :slight_smile:
