Is it possible to organize your stories within the Lytro Web? I have uploaded some pictures individually that I would like to combine into one story page, and don't see any controls to make that happen.
Bill, you can't organize pics on the web just yet. Do you usually upload 1 pic at a time or do you usually upload an entire set of pics?
My first upload was every pic, but last night I only wanted to upload 3 shots and not delete the others on the camera. I didn't see a way to choose some and upload them as a group, so I moved them one at at time.
Bill, you can select any number of pictures in the library view by using shift and/or command to multi-select the thumbnails. Hope that helps.
I'll try that again. It didn't seem to work at the time, but maybe I was doing something wrong.
The easiest way I've found to upload a subset of a story is to review the pictures and star the ones that I want to upload.
Then I choose the option at the top of the application window to only show the starred pictures.
Finally I select all and upload.
Can we organize pic on the web in the future? Is kinda troublesome to reupload whole story
Tan, we will be offering more organization features for the web in the future. Thanks for your patience and keep the feedback coming.
Bump! Totally need this feature since I've been using my friend's macs to upload - everything I have on the camera goes into one story (don't have time to upload separately) and then once they're online I can't do anything with them!
Bump. This is frustrating.
Please allow the merge of pix on the web 'cause I put my 'Stories' in terms of places so I need to add pix to old 'Stories' from time to time......
And when moving stuff on the web - do we care to keep the same link in case the image has already been shared to the web or via email? I think that would be the hardest choice here... But overall, being able to do it, whichever way it comes, would help. I would say, at least keep the same web address for the images that are in the story we are copying TO.. If the images being moved from other places have to change addresses.. we can probably deal with that... it's a hard choice to make, but I'd rather have the functionality. Also rearranging images within the story would be very good, and allowing the owner to change the default focus point would be nice....
The needs of this would probably change - or grow - once we get to the point where you guys can "re-process" images... because clearly then we may want to "reshare" stories from the Desktop, but still attempt to keep the same link address.. not sure about that one... If a story with the "reprocessed" images could be uploaded as new, but then we could move images into the old story, maybe this will do.... Lot's of possibilities here...
The bottom line, the web needs to be more robust one way or another...
