This is just too weird. I uploaded some photos of a swap I'm in and it worked just fine. But when I clicked on one of the pics in order to copy the URL, I noticed photos from a user named "kartiana," baby pics and others I don't recognize, and it even had her name instead of mine!

Here's a screen shot of the one that has kartiana's name at the top. The last two items on the right are NOT mine, and if I go further to the right I see baby pics and other stuff that's not mine, so weird:




Now here's one with my user name:




When I first go into "my picture hosting," it looks like everything is fine, but only if I view them by page number. When I click on an individual photo, other people's photos start appearing and are mixed in with mine! Kartiana's isn't the only name and pics that appear, there are others.

What the heck?!

Okay, here's another piece of info to add to the mystery. I am in a swap called "Completely Random"

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=257385.new;topicseen#new

and just saw that kartiana is also in this swap. It looks to me like she posted photos around the same time I did...somehow they became enmeshed with mine. It just keeps getting more weird.

P.S. Here's the link to the apron swap I'm in:

Mine does the same thing.  I think it's because you are at the end of your user gallery, so it's accessing the next user gallery in the list.  If you click on one of the pictures that isn't yours, does the username at the top switch over to hers?  It should.

Yes, the name does switch over, but I'm not at the end of my gallery. I purposely started at the beginning to see if that was the issue and clicked on the first picture and others are mixed in all over the place, nothing's in order.


The apron in the middle is mine, but everything surrounding it isn't:

Yeah.  Sounds like when you're in that view, it just looks at whatever order the photos were uploaded to our system.  It shouldn't be a big deal as long as you can get to your main thumbnail gallery.

Right, but it shouldn't happen at all. It's MY photo gallery which I should be able to access only by signing in under my account. When I went to pick out the photos to include in the swap gallery it made it a pain in the butt to go through all those unnecessary photos to find mine.

I'm totally not trying to sound bitchy, I just want to make myself clear: I should be able to browse only MY photos in MY photo hosting area, not the pictures of strangers. If I want to browse other people's pics then I should be required to click on their names to see them, not click on my personal photo hosting.

It feels like an intrusion into my personal space.

Just to make sure everyone knows -- none of the photos in our galleries are private or unreachable by other members.  We can all browse each other's galleries at any time.

I've never had a problem finding my images when posting, though.  I go to my gallery, click on the picture I want, copy the code and put it in my post.

When you go to the slideshow view, you aren't necessarily in your gallery, which I'm gathering is what you want changed in the code.  I'll make note of this and see what we can do! Smiley

I think of it like we have our own little folders in the file cabinet.  If you look above the pictures when you click "my picture hosting" it says:      
Home Member Galleries summertimerolls (for me).  So the program has to go through all the members to find your gallery.  If you click on member galleries then you get everyone's pictures.  But yours are all linked to you if you click on your name.  You shouldn't have to go through them all to find your picture.

I know it's not private, that's not the issue I'm having, and again, not trying to be a witch here so I apologize if that's how it's coming across.

The issue is not having only mine to browse through when I'm uploading. I've been a member since September of 2007 and I've NEVER had other people's photos show up in my slideshow, never. Maybe I've just been lucky, but I don't think so, I think it's a new glitch.

You shouldn't have to go through them all to find your picture.

EXACTLY my point, thank you!

You aren't coming across bad at all!  ...not AT ALL! Smiley  I didn't think you thought they were private, but I wanted to make sure everyone else knew that as well.  It would suck if someone thought they could use our galleries for personal use, haha!

I think I've been able to find other peoples' photos in the slideshow view for awhile, but it could very well be a new thing.  I'm going to talk to Leah about this and see what we can do to make it easier for yas.

exactamundo! Wink



dawt, is it possible that you've just been uploading pics at a non-busy time? i'm on the west coast, and usually online late at night, so that's when i do my uploading. i almost never have this happen when i upload at night, it's just when i upload during the day. i know it's been like this for a long time though.


i'm not sure i understand, if you don't want to look at the other photos, why don't you just go to your gallery? it's only one more click, really.

Hmmm...whenever I click "My Picture Hosting" I see:
Home Member Galleries admin

Then, when I upload photos, it puts them in my own gallery. But, sometimes, I see all of the photos by others that were uploaded around the same time as mine. I have to click on one of my photos to actually get to my own gallery...

I've NEVER reached my own gallery by clicking on the "My Picture Hosting" link. How do I get to my own gallery?

that's odd!

when i click "My Picture Hosting", i get "Home Member Galleries crafty_dame" too.

you could search (on the upper right) your username, then click on one of the pictures it finds, then click on your name above... but you shouldn't have to do that much work to get to your gallery!

That's quite possible, crafty_dame, I do tend to be up till the wee hours of the morning and I never knew it was an issue until today. I just 'assumed' that it was like my flickr or Photobucket, where only my photos show up in my 'folder' and I don't have to stumble around strangers' pics to look through mine.

As for not wanting to see other people's photos, it's not that I don't want to see them, it's that I shouldn't have to. Sorting through other people's photos to find mine while I'm copying and pasting the links for swap threads and such just seems archaic in this day and age of high tech.

I guess I can get around it by doing the ctrl-click thing to open each photo in a new window. Still, I shouldn't have to.

I agree. Also, since I've done some programming and database work, one problem can be indicative of a system design flaw. Which could be big or small. But should definitely be researched.
Hopefully Leah and crew are on the case.

btw: When I click on:
"My Craftster -> My Picture Hosting"
I get a 3x4 grid of my pics. Just my pics. Just like expect to see. That's what you're expecting, right Dawt?

Yes, that's what I get, it's when I click on an individual picture to get the URL that the 'problem' begins. It's odd (to me, at least) that other people's photos would show up in a view that should only show one person's photos.

I would expect it to behave as the folders on my system, open a folder, open sub-folder, wah-la, there's the files I want to edit or whatever, with no intermingling of other files or folders.

I sure appreciate everyone's input and hope Leah's team can streamline this feature.  Wink

Yeah, it's just not coded to stay within one personal gallery when in the individual/slideshow view.  We'll see if we can adjust that. Smiley

I am happy to know that everyone's main thumbnail gallery view works all right, though!

Ok Dawt, I sort misunderstood then...  Tongue
So I went and checked what happens in my account, a little while ago, and I click on my first pic and there is nothing before it. And there is nothing after the last of my photos. Which is what you are expecting and not getting. So my photo hosting is good.  Smiley

Hmmm... did you guys fix something? Cause I just clicked on "My Photo Hosting" and for the first time ever, I  got my own gallery of images! So, thanks for working your magic (and thanks to the gremlins for scramming if you didn't Wink )!

We didn't change anything yet as far as I know.

If you click My Craftster, My Picture Hosting, then click on an individual picture to go to the slideshow mode, you'll still probably run into photos in other galleries.

If you click My Craftster, My Picture Hosting, it will show your personal gallery in one of the views you have selected (from the View dropdown menu in the upper right), as usual.

Okay, here's what's weird... It all works fine on my PC (go figure...), but on my Mac, I get the admin gallery when I click on "My Picture Hosting." So then, I don't know how to get to my own gallery (I can only get to my gallery when I upload a pic and then click on it...).
