Photo 8665 by Nate Peirson, Night Sky in Idaho, July 2017
Myriads of Images and Memories
Hello family! I’ve received a couple of requests for how to view photos taken by Nate at the Hooley Family Reunion in Idaho 2017 & posted by Nate on this blog in an earlier post. He listed three links for viewing his photos. Pick one, click on it, and view them on your device. Because I’m working on a tablet without tons of storage space, and because I thought it would be faster, I’ve utilized only the first link which downloads a “zip” file (with “compressed”? data?) and allows the viewer to see a “reduced” image. I confess I don’t know what any of that means! I’m just trusting Nate that this is the best option for the novice of such things.
After downloading the zip file (which took around three hours — again, I don’t know if that’s normal or just my situation — others might report how long it takes on your system), … after downloading the zip file, I found I couldn’t share the images on the blog as I hoped. That is until I “extracted” them. Again, I don’t understand any of these processes or why one thing doesn’t work but another does. I’m just experimenting.
Even after “extracting” the photos, I found that uploading even just one to this blog’s media file took longer than I’ve experienced with other photo uploads. Again, I don’t know if I’m just experiencing a slow system/network today, or if it’s the nature of the photo-file, or what. I APOLOGIZE for my lack of expertise in these matters! If others know how to do this better or faster, PLEASE instruct me! Or actually, anyone who has accessed Nate’s files and has signed up to be an “author” for this blog can share particular photos via a post with one or more photos included. Reminder: any Hooley family member may be an “author.” If you want to be an “author” for this blog (which means you can publish and edit your own posts) just let me know and I will send you an invitation. If you already received an invitation to be an author but it expired, let me know and I will send you another one.
I’ve decided I’m going to attempt to post (one at a time?) nearly/all(?) of Nate’s photos with his file numbers. This is going to take a while. I’m hoping others will view them and add comments with information regarding who/what is in each photo and any personal memories they care to share. I changed the settings for this blog such that people can comment on any post at any time.
Again, this process of uploading photos is going to take a while. So, even though downloading the whole zip file might take you three hours as it did me, that would be the quickest way for you to view all the pictures at your leisure. The only advantage of viewing them here is that people can read each others’ comments. For me, reading what others’ comment will make posting them here worth the time it takes. I just hope many family members will view and comment!
THANK YOU, NATE, for taking the photos and making them available to all of us.
THANK YOU, everyone, for your patience with me as I attempt to make them available for comment-sharing.
