I love the Image Gallery update. Very nice.

When you click on someone's user name under an image and you go to their profile it shows that this user has added a certain number of images to Critiki, I'd like to be able to see all of the images from that user. Sometimes I lose track of what I've added. Also, some people take really spectacular pictures. I'd like to get an instant view of all of those shots.

So glad you're getting a kick out of it!

Good call! The plan is to let you see all the images submitted by one person on their profile. I'm currently chewing on the problem of how best to do that... I'd like to have the option of seeing all the photos in one album, but also breaking them down by location and by image type. I need to figure out how best to do that without just making a cluttered, confusing mess. But it's right at the top of my plate!

I like it when I can do something for Tiki-Kate:

Image Galleries By User

You can view all of one person's images in one big gallery, or you can browse through the images by location, or by theme. At this moment, only the "A-frame" theme has been released, but more will become available in the coming days. To see one person's images, go to their profile by clicking on their username.

I've released the next image gallery:

Advertisements



Clipped ads from newspapers, travel guides, even old phone directories (Tiki-Kate just added some new ones today!).

Enjoy!

Wow! That was fast.

It's great that you can look at all your images or check them by location or theme.

I had fun checking off all of the places that I've visited over the years. Still working on that actually. Sad to see how many of them are gone.

Ojaitimo: top ten in what sense?

Wow -- the Advertisements image gallery more than doubled in size yesterday, as people added more images of ads from their own collections -- mahalo nui loa!

Now for another new image gallery:

Ashtrays



At restaurants dedicated to escape, leisure and relaxation, naturally there was an ashtray for every table.

Great work Humu! The easier you make it for people to see the images, the more images people will be inclined to add. And it's only going to grow in value as more images are added.

Since you're in wish list mode... I'd like a link to the original image that was uploaded since it looks like you are resizing them all to the same dimensions for your gallery.

I'll try to block out some time and barrage you with some image uploads.

The Image Gallery feature is great!

Something you might consider adding - which would be a great time saver when uploading images - would be a feature that would allow one to select and upload multiple images in one shot, not only for Critiki but for Ooga-Mooga as well. Maybe even add an option to cross-link images between the two sites, so when you're uploading images to OM you could click a check box that you make those same images available to Critiki, and visa-versa.

Humu
How about the top 10 former glory Tiki palaces by vote. We can all vote between Critiki 10's?

Maybe a Top ten of todays Tiki palaces around the world?

GatorRob - I am keeping the full size images, and I've thought about making them available for viewing on Critiki. I would like to go ahead & do it, however I do have a small concern about how the original image owners would feel; perhaps I'm being silly, I don't know.

LOL Tiki - I've thought about providing a multi-upload page, but it'll be some work, not just in the back-end code (not so big a deal), but in the UI (bigger deal)... I want to take some care and design something that will minimize confusion, AND minimize people uploading images that are unusable, or filling in the fields incorrectly. But it's on my wish list, too!

Ojaitimo - I'm afraid I still don't follow you... how does what you have in mind differ from Critiki's
Browse Rankings section?

Okay, now it's time for today's new image gallery!

Brochures



Selling a dream evening, a dream vacation, or even a dream lifestyle—all are full of rich visuals designed to suck you in.

Hi Danny! I miss you!

Today's new Image Gallery is one of my favorites:

Drinks



Tiki's most practical contribution to society: the perfection of the tropical drink. Enjoy photos, illustrations and menu descriptions, with no hangover.
