When ever you want to post a photo in your post that comes from your portfolio, you click on the "New Portfolio" link over to the right of the box where you are composing your post, or you click on the little images link above the post, depending on which mode you're in. However, you get there, you always see the same thing, namely something like this:

As you can see, you can only view 5 or your images at a time. In the above example, you'll see that there are 21 pages of 5 images, so if you need to paste a photo that may be somewhere in your group of portfolio images, you may have to page through 20 pages to find the image. This is a giant pain in the neck!

Since the above window is resizable, there is really no reason the system could not show you 20 or 30 images at a time which would make it much faster to find the image you want to include with your post.

Just to test out this idea, I wrote a little program in Visual Basic that would go out and get my images from the G1 portfolio and display them in a scrolling page that looked like this:

I had it group them by Glamour (non nude) at the top and Glamour (nude) at the bottom, and then just scroll to see all images. But if done through the photoplog system it would just have the little paging mechanism (that I circled in red in the first screen shot above) at the bottom of each page. So if it showed 28 images at a time as in my example above, then the 21 pages required by the current system would be reduced to 4 pages to see 100 plus images.

What do you all think? Do you like the current system for including a photo in a post, or would a modification such as I'm suggesting be helpful?

As to how hard it might be to implement this change in the system, I think it could be done in just a few small changes. Since the window is being controlled by PHP, then all one would need to do is change the code that controls the paging of the photos within the box that appears. This would mean adjusting the LIMIT statement and making the box about the size of my example.

Anyway, let's hear your feedback and perhaps the powers that be will be inclined to make a change to this system.

Seems to me that would be convenient and a nice added touch.

Things are greatly improving. Thanks for all your work!
