How Do I: Change the display picture in my gallery?

Isabella

I was wondering how to change the display picture in my Gallery? When you go to Fish Lore Home Page > Fish Pictures > Member Galleries, a page with all members' galleries pops out. Every member has a certain picture showing as a display picture for his/her gallery. How can I change this display picture?

Here's what I mean:
(This screen shot was taken on the Members Galleries page.)

I have a feeling that it is the pic that has the most views.

You mean, the display picture in your gallery will always be the one that has most views? Well, this screen shot was taken just now and this picture is not the one that has most views.

I don't know. I am just going by what I figured out from mine.

Hmm. I wonder if we could choose which picture we want to be our display picture

Just wait for Mike to respond to this.

LOL, I know ...

Ok - I can answer this one. When you are viewing the larger version of the picture you want to use, there are a group of little icons below the photo. There are two that are important to note...

The first is: and it is used for changing the file information (title, description, etc) and for moving it to different albums.

The second icon is: and you click that button to use that particular photo as your album cover.

See attached for the locations of these buttons. I've circled them in red.

Still working on a "how to" for the gallery and hope to have it out soon.

Thanks,
Mike

OHHH ... LOL, thanks Mike!

sorry - didn't realize that you had to be an admin to see it. I think it's the last uploaded photo by default, so you could just re-upload the photo you want to use for the thumbnail. I will keep trying to find a fix for that to make it easier to change the thumbnail.

UPDATE - I think I partially have this worked out. When you upload your photos they are put under your main gallery folder with the assumption that you'll put them into an "Album". So, you'll need to create an album and then move your photos to that album. Then you can navigate to the photo within the album and then select it as the album thumbnail. Important - it seems that you can only set this once per album (why, I don't have the foggiest). I'm seeing if I can somehow change that.

All righty Mike I'll try to create album(s) and see what I can do with that Thanks once again

I have all albums created and my pics sorted out. I was able to make each album have the display picture that I wanted

Although I have one more question (sorry for that!) . When you go to "Member Galleries", each member on the page has one picture displayed above his/her name. If a member has multiple albums, how do you set one display picture that is presented in the "Member Galleries" page above a member's name?

Is that possbile at all to do?

Not sure, lemme check...
