Upload your 02 photos

I'm thinking of starting a BMW photo upload site and need people to upload some of their photos to test the site/server out. I just installed it so the design will stay stock for the next couple of days. Registration is required but only takes a few secs. Max image size is 150K for now. You can view it here http://www.bimmerimage.com

Thanks

Thanks

For those who want to upload only a few photos you can use the Public albums (BMW 2002) . For those who want to create their own different albums you must use the User Galleries.

Worked great for me.

Thanks!

Harry, I hadnt seen your Schwarz in that state before (with the short rear bar). Last time i saw it in a photo, it had long bars(US style) front and back. It looks great and gives me an idea of how my Schwarz 74 will look with a short rear bar.

Nice work!

Tom

You may want to put in some code that blocks external linking. I've hosted a number of picture type sites and you can get crazy amounts of bandwidth usage if you allow people to hotlink images without permission.

Assuming you are using apache and have mod_reqwrite installed you can do it pretty easy

Also you can maintain a list of 'friendly' linkers -- like this site!!

you make an .htaccess file

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://bimmerimage.com/.*$     [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.bimmerimage.com/.*$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.bmw2002faq.com/.*$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://bmw2002faq.com/.*$ [NC]
RewriteRule .*\.(gif|GIF|jpg|JPG)$ http://www.bimmerimage.com/bad.gif [R]

where bad.gif is a small gif with a 'no linking message' or something.

Just a thought -- i hate bandwidth thieves!!!!

Ive used MOD Rewite on a couple of my photo sites before but I'll let users hotlink and go from there. If the load or bandwidth gets too high I'll add it in.

The only thing I might suggest is to allow any sized photo to be uploaded, that way the user doesn't have to worry about going over a certain size. After the images are loaded you can go back in and auto-resize to the max that you want. You'll get a lot more people participating that way.
