Shared Image / Photo Albums

Is there a way to create a shared album that I can add a standard set of images to that all of our approved authors can pick up?

At the moment we are asking every author to pick up manually and store locally but we have no central control from this.

 

Thanks in advance

I tried this just now - made a public album; added a bunch of appropriate images to share with my TKB authors.
In my STAGE environment the album is a hot mess of overlapping, non-navigable images.

In Production - it's clean.

BUT...It's only available to Admins? Even though I made the album public?

Am I missing something?

 

What I want:

A public, shared, photo album of approved cover photos that our TKB authors can choose from when they are adding CoverPhoto to their posts.

@Lief When you upload images, members can make them public (so that others can view them) or hidden (so that only the gallery owner and moderators can access the images through the gallery).

 

Users with the Public Album URL can't upload those images in their posts with the Insert Photos button because it only shows the current user's albums. Instead, they would have to specify the image using some HTML code.

@Lief Currently, there is no option to specify images from other albums for Cover Photos.

@sarajaynerow You might have found a way to achieve this as it has been a long time since you have posted your query. For those who may need help with this in the future, you can use the Other Assets in Studio. 

The Other Assets subtab of the Community Style tab is a repository for all other files that you want to use or make available in the community. For example, you might include a PDF file of community guidelines, an image you plan to use in custom content or component, or a CSS.

Upload an asset file may help. 

Hello all, I haven't found a way unfortunately but I will take a look at the suggestion. An easy library for my authors to pick from without specifying code is what I am after, exactly the same as @Lief above

@sarajaynerow I'd recommend creating an idea for this as the public images are not available with the insert photos button and currently, there is no option to specify images from other albums for Cover Photos.

DONE. https://community.khoros.com/t5/Khoros-Community-Ideas/Enable-a-quot-public-quot-permissions-based-P...


oops - didn't read the @ mention closely.

@sarajaynerow - didn't mean to scoop you. My bad.

Hey @Lief 

No worries at all. If Khoros respond and can do something about it based off the idea you raised, then all good! Fingers crosse as maintaining google drives that everyone has to download from, then upload into Community is a pain.
