The issue of acceptable picture quality is likely to rattle on forever, since individual taste is so subjective, except perhaps for weeding out images with gross technical faults. However, PoE's suggestion of grouping multiple uploads of the same location so that only a top level picture shows in 'Latest Pictures', is in my opinion, a great idea. This would avoid the viewer having to plough through scores of pictures of a location he has no interest in.

I assume that the keyword identification would not be affected, so that someone coming into the site via a search engine would still pick up on all the relevant images. This is obviously important for those of us who might be hopeful of selling more pictures.

Thanks Edward. It won't be for a while, as we have zero budget for any changes right now, but it is top of the list. Keywords shouldn't be affected, but you're right to ask and I've made a note of that, thank you.

I wholeheartedly agree with Edward re. grouping of multiple uploads.

I have just found that by clicking on "Donate" (which it would appear not many do) a random selection of photographs appearing larger than those at the top of Forum can be selected and commented on if so inclined. If that could be available under a seperate title such as "Random Selection" I believe many more people would view and hopefully comment.
