Image Free Image Database? What is it? And why would anyone want to help build it?
By Brenda Essig aka Zanymuse on August 27, 2012

The Free Image Database in the Playpen of Graphics is a growing collection of images that are made available for use by everyone without restrictions other than that they may not be used in any other online database. Copyright free, no fees or link backs required...why would anyone be willing to add their photographs to such a database? Why would I even attempt to create such a database and why house it here at cubits?

Yes, thank you from me too, Zany. You know I have contributed a good number of images to date, and will continue to add more when I have time. In fact, I have a few waiting in the wings right now. Maybe I'll go do that before I start my day........... Smiling

Do images need to be approved before they are posted?

I've added two and I'm not seeing them so I'm thinking I've either loaded them incorrectly Whistling which is a very real possibility Confused or they need to be approved first.

Just checking before I add more.

Thanks!

No, they do not need to be approved right now. I check them regularly but I trust you folks to keep it clean Lovey dubby

Did you create an entry first and then add your pictures to it?

Must not have Whistling - I'll go check and try again.

Believe it or not, I've added over 15,000 images to the ATP database so hopefully, I'll figure this out one Big Grin

Flowers are wonderful in the database. Folks are always looking for good pics to show what they want, or what they hope their's will look like.

I do think it is a good idea to remind folks to make sure to label what the pic is, rather than a description of the scene...ie orange butterfly on coneflower rather than what's blooming today...just makes searching easier.

I did enter a bouquet of yellow blooms today but I have no idea what their name is. Crying

The photo was taken by my brother-in-law.

Great idea on the flowers and naming and I surely will if I know the name Whistling Big Grin

Hi Vic...even if the caption reads Yellow Flowers, it gives the search better info.just as simple as saying 2 horses rather than Fred and Ethel in the paddock... Big Grin
