Organizing Images In My Upload Center......

I prefer to host any images I post right on the ATS Upload instead of using Putfile or some other hosting service, and the list is getting very long.


I was just wondering if there was a way to organize this long list?
Or a way to have only the most recent uploads show on the list?

One other thing......
Is there some way that a button could be added to the store that would allow a bulk purchase of upload space. Hitting that one button for every 10k is tedious.

If I delete, the picture will no longer show in the post I put it in.
I'd like a way to organize all the pictures in my "Uploaded Folder".

The images are already organized by the order you uploaded them. The files are all similar in that they are ats#####_yourfilename.file. I don't believe it gets more organized than that simply because all the files go into the uploads directory, so it's bulk for everyone.

As for buying more upload space, it can be tedious, but it doesn't take terribly long. It's more or less one of those things to just sort of deal with, I mean, how often do you need to buy upload space? If it's really a problem, just go on a huge spending spree and buy as much as you can. Then you won't have to worry about it for awhile at least.

is there something distinct about these photos, ie gif animated?
why dont you just use the url from the website you get the pictures from
i dont understand why you would need to save so many.

I like to use pictures to make many of my posts more informative.
A picture is worth a thousand words.

I also think pictures make the threads so much more interesting.
If you take a look at a few of my posts you will see what I mean about lots of pictures.

The Politics Of Kissing. Or Kissing-Up......
Members Doing Mods. Revisited...... (with pictures)
Just What Does Google Think They're Hiding?

These threads would have been impossible without the use of numerous pictures. Also by hosting the pictures on the ATS server I don't have to open another sight to upload to and then link the url to my post. Everything is all in one place and if the Putfile website is down, none of my pictures hosted there will display on ATS.

I was just hoping for some sort of folder system so that I could bunch together some pictures and shorten my ever growing list of uploads.

hi anxietydisorder,
yes i agree, your posts are informative and well presented but
i still dont understand why you dont just use the url from the website,

right click mouse go to properties copy and past url into the image function.

i only save photos that i've taken or edited,
you save photo's from websites, you dont need to!

plus if you use photoshop or some other editing program you can compile many pictures into one file eg,

I've spent a lot of time looking at some of the older threads while doing the content tagging and I see so many threads ruined because the linked images are no longer there. If the page the photo was taken from is changed at the source, your link to it won't work anymore.
If the image is uploaded to ATS it's always there and is never dependant on the ever changing WWW.

I like how you put those pictures together though.
I have PictureIt Publishing that I use to edit images with, but I've never gotten very proficient at using it. I'm going to have to spend more time with the program and learn how to use all the different features.

Yes i understand,
you wish your old threads to remain the same, i suppose the only thing to do is come up with a better system for future posts, like my example,

I use photoshop for my image editing, but if you spend a bit of time on your
pulishing program the results will be beneficial for both presentation and organizing your photo's.


all the best... ian

ps, those photo's are very revealing

Yeah, the entire Kissing Up Thread is hosted on Putfile and if that site goes down the entire thread disappears.
That's 45 pictures gone........

If I had the choice now I'd go back and upload all those pictures to ATS.

Why dont you copy them to your hardrive, you can still save as from putfile, then you'll have a backup,
