    Default VB Image Hosting vs Albums

    I have upgraded VB Image Hosting, which gives us access to all of our old upgraded pictures.

    However, the new VB has its own image hosting, which the creators of VB Image Hosting say to use instead! So... until they complete work on a conversion tool to move images from old to new, we'll leave both enabled... but I would suggest using the built-in for new images.

    It can be found on the "Community" drop down, then "Albums." You'll need to create an album before you can upload any photos.

    Once the converter is in place I'll let everyone know before we do the upgrade...

    Which makes me wonder if I should smoke the unmaintained/unused/unupgraded Gallery installation which lives elsewhere... it has all those old pics on it (which i can save and make available). Thoughts?

    I'm a fan of smoking the old one as long as the pictures that were in it are saved and made available. Makes no sense to leave it unmaintained/unused/unupgraded indefinitely. I'm a fan of removing clutter, but I'm also a fan of reminiscing about the "Good Ol' Days".

    We could use wget or album to make an html only version. Or possibly use the gallery2 to flickr plugin and just archive there.

    i like the wget idea (since we won't lose captions and whatnot)... anyone want to mess about w/options to get it right?

    or something from here: http://codex.gallery2.org/Other_Clie...s_from_Gallery
