    Default picture Upload for image Gallery

    The Image Gallery Component is indeed a fantastic tool for viewing images but how do we build a component that would enable users upload pictures such that the image upload tool automatically uploads the thumbnail version into the thumbnail folder? Thank you.

    The problem with the Image Gallery is that it is NOT database based, that is it will only show what is in a particular folder - so yes it's a good idea for displaying the contents of image files in a folder - but is not a database tool. You are better off using a grid with image control (in my view) that is data based and connects your details about an image with the image, and allows you to re-size thumbnail images . - Hope this helps.

    Thanks Pete, but can we use the grid to add images such that the thumbnail version of the image is added along with the mail image or would the use have to upload twice? The idea is to enable users upload their images with ease and then the IGC can be used for viewing the already uploaded image since the IGC is only an image viewer.

    Well kind of - watch this video I just did to report an issue to Alpha, you will see it working well - all you need do is size the display size in the grid, then put an con click on the image to enlarge - lots of things possible. - Good luck.
