Thanks for checking out the Beta version of our new Photos section. Down below you can read more about the all the features we've included in this release as well as a description of the features that will be coming soon.

Features in Photos Beta

  • Integration with Media Manager - Photos Beta has yet to be integrated with your Media Manager. This means that photos you upload into Photos Beta will not be accessible via the Media Manager on other areas of the site. Don't worry, it's coming soon! In the meantime each time you upload a photo we'll give you HTML code that you can use to embed your photos into your Personal Page and anywhere else on the web you'd like!
  • Integration with Personal Page - In the next release we'll be releasing a feature that will enable you to show off your Photos by creating a customized, animated "Photo Badge" that you can embed in your Personal Page or anywhere on the web!

Features in Photos Beta

  • Unlimited Photos - That's right! Unlimited. Go ahead and upload as many photos as you like. In the meantime each time you upload a photo we'll give you HTML code that you can use to embed your photos into your Personal Page and anywhere else on the web you'd like!
  • Upload BIG Files - Now you can upload photos that are up to 4MB in size! We'll reduce them in size and give you three different viewing sizes to choose from.
  • View Full Size - When a member clicks on one of the photos you've uploaded, we'll automatically show them a smaller, download-friendly version of your photo, but if they want to see a bigger version, they can always click the "View Larger Image" size to see a bigger, hi-rez version. (up to 1600 x 1600 pixels!)
  • Multiple File Format Support - Beyond the standard JPG and GIF files, now you can upload BMP, PNG and TIFF files as well.
  • Crop & Rotate - When you upload a photo, we've built a tool that allows you to rotate it and crop it to the size you want!
  • Privacy Settings - Now you have control over who's allowed to see each photo you upload! Make photos Public (available for everyone to see), Friends-Only (only members that are on your Friends list can see) or Private (only YOU can see!).
  • Collect photos by adding them to your Favorite Photos page - See a photo you love? Then make sure to click the "Add to Favorites" button! We'll automatically add the photo to a new page called "My Favorite Photos" so that you'll have the photo in your collection! We'll also send the owner of the photo a quick note letting them know that you added their photo to your Favorites list!
  • Give Props! - If you see a photo you think is great, just click the "Give Props" button and you'll help other members find interesting photos. You can only give Props to a particular photo once, but you can to give them to as many photos as you'd like!

I grew up with practical grandparents who had been frightened by the Great Depression in the 1930's. A mother, God love her, who washed aluminum foil after she cooked in it, then reused it. She was the original recycle queen, before they had a Name for it... A father who was happier getting old shoes fixed than buying new ones.
Their marriage was good, their dreams focused. Their best friends lived barely a wave away. I can see them now, Dad in trousers, tee shirt and a hat and Mom in a house dress, lawn mower in one hand, and dish-towel in the other. It was the time for fixing things ; a curtain rod, the kitchen radio, screen door, the oven door, the hem in a dress. Things we keep.

It was a way of life, and sometimes it made me crazy. All that repairing, eating, reusing, I wanted just once to be wasteful. Waste meant affluence. Throwing things away meant you knew there'd always be more.

But then my mother died, and on that clear summer's night, in the warmth of the hospital room, I was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't any more.

Sometimes, what we care about most gets all used up and goes away...never to return. So... While we have it... it's best we love it... And care for it... And fix it when it's broken..... And heal it when it's sick.

This is true... For marriage.... And old cars.... And children wi th bad report cards..... And dogs and cats with bad hips.... And aging par ents.... And grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it. Some things we keep. Like a best friend that moved away or a classmate we grew up with.

There are just some things that make life important, like people we know who are special.... And so, we keep them close!

I received this from someone who thinks I am a 'keeper,' so I've sent it to the people I think of in the same way... Now it's your turn to send this to those people who are 'keepers' in your life. Send it back to the person who sent it to you if they, too, are a keeper. Good friends are like stars.... You don't always see them, but you know they a re always there.

Keep them close
