I may be having a senior moment here, but how do I move a photo from a personal album to a mine album?
Surely this has to be so simple that it's escaped me completely. Blush

Not sure if this is the easiest way?

Download image to your desktop and then upload the image to the relevant mine images.

Probably an easier way to those more familiar with the system.

Open your personal album and hover your mouse under the cog that is shown under each of the small preview photos. Click on Move Mine to be guided through a step by step procedure for moving the photo to a regular mine album.

Within regular mine albums you will see this cog under your own photos (regional editors and admins see it under all photos) where you have both Move (different album, same mine e.g. User to Archive) and Move Mine (album in a different mine).

In all cases you also get an Edit option that can be used to retrospectively add a caption.

Hi Simon,

I just tried the move album option on Dowgang Burn Coal mine to shift a photo from the current to the archive album and it went through the process but didn't seem to do anything, it may have realised that I'm an idiot and decided to ignore me! I got around it's whimsey easily enough by just deleting the photo in the current album and downloading to the archive.

I've just moved the same photo from Archive to User and then to Archive. Worked as it should.

No still ignoring me, the cog is there but not moving, does it expect a higher level of permission (admin etc.) that I have?

It's not a major issue but would be good to know.

What happens when you hover your mouse over the cog icon?

The finger appears and the dropdown menu with four options, it responds to the request to move album and tells me what albums are available and the move tab does appear to respond, but then the photo resolutely stays put.

As it's an option I am only likely to use very occasionally and there are ways around I'm sure you have many better things to do.

Do you get the confirmation page with thank you message and the links to the original and recipient albums?

No, no additional messaging and it just returns me to the welcome page.

Thanks Simon,

As I said earlier, not the most important of issues.

Thanks Simon that seems to have worked fine after some initial trepidation Laugh
I thought it may have been a simple case of copy and paste of the photo url, and I was being a bit thick in not finding where to go. Laugh
