. Please note
if you have added glassworks to the library recently, please edit your photos and change the category to one of the glass categories, thanks!
Reference Libary Changes!
There have been some exciting changes and additions to our WC! Reference Image Library System:
1. The "Member Personal Galleries" have been renamed, the category is now "Member's Contributions." This is to help clarify and reinforce the fact that the library is not a "virtual art gallery", but rather a resource built by the members here to provide reference photographs for all members to use.
2. With the addition of the Glass Art category, several members have requested a "Glass" addition to the library. The new "Glass" category currently has 3 subcategories: Beads & Marbles, Jewelry, and Functional Glass. Lots of the glass art members are willing to share their items for all of us to use as reference, and as more interest is created in that category, additional subcategories will be made.
3. We now have a category for "Art Objects". Share your "tools of the trade" here. Have an antique loom you are still using? A unique kiln, printing press, glass torch? Share those items in this new subcategory!
4. Remember the old GetAway 2000 photos? They are still there, the category has been re-named "GetAways & Gatherings" for all those great WC! happenings!
And now, some friendly reminders to all:
All images uploaded to the reference library are fair game to all other users of WC. Please upload only those photos that you own or can verify are copyright-free.
All images uploaded need to be placed in a category, given a title, keywords and descriptions. If you can't find a category that fits, drop me a line and we'll figure out where it needs to go! For example, I upload a flower photo into the flower category, you will be able to find it under my name in "Member's Contributions" as well be able to find it under the "Flowers" category. You would also be able to find flower photos by searching for the keyword "flower" and even more specific, the type of flower and perhaps the color, depending on the number of keywords I entered (You can add up to 10 keywords, no commas between the words please!) Doing these few simple steps gives flexibility to the library, and offers all members many ways to search for inspiration and references!
It is up to us as members of WC! to make the library the best it can be! As always, if you have any questions or suggestions about the library, please feel free to drop me a PM!
Thanks to everyone who contributes!
