    We are sure many would have noticed the new Gallery feature with the launch of new forum (TFI 3.0). This thread would provide the necessary information regarding the Gallery and about uploading the pictures/Videos to the Gallery.

    This new Gallery option has lot many features which we believe would be useful to all Photography enthusiasts in TFI. :)

    General Information

    - Use the Gallery to create an album to upload your photos and Videos under a suitable title. The pictures can be related to anything and not restricted to just Automobile.

    - You can keep your Album in the Gallery either Public (Can be viewed by everyone including non members) or Private (Visible only to you).

    - You can add a good description for the Album and comments for each photo that you upload.

    - You can choose to keep the Album open to member's comments and have a discussion too.

    - EXIF information (Camera, Shutter speed, Aperture and Focal length if the information is present in the picture) is displayed for each of the photo that you upload.

    - You can choose to add Stream texts (tags which are used to search Album/Picture) for an Album and the pictures.

    Quota per User

    Each registered member of TFI can:
    1. Create 5 albums in the gallery
    2. Each album can contain a maximum of 100 images
    3. Each album can contain a maximum of 10 videos
    4. The maximum allowable resolution of an image is 1600 x 1600 pixels
    5. Maximum allowable file size is 800 kb

    All content that you upload in Gallery are also subject to Moderation. Any content that violate the TFI rules will be deleted without notice.

    Steps to create a new Album

    Step 1 - Go to the Gallery Section and Click on the 'Create New Album' as shown below


    Step 2 - You will see the Panel as shown below. Enter the Title, Description, Privacy settings and the Stream texts separated by comma. We recommend you to enter the Stream text as this would become easy for searching the Album/Picture later. The Category column is currently not put into use. Click on the Upload Photos link to upload your pictures.


    Step 3 - After the Upload, you will see the panel as shown below. You can choose to enter title/description for each of the picture. Click on the Save button. You are done.
