Some while ago I lost all the files on my computer yet somehow, and without any help from me, they all turned up on under 'View Photo's As Slides 'here on YMRC under my avatar !

As wonderful as that is, could the Mods please explain how they got there in the first place and is there anyway that I can return them to my files yet still leave them on the Forum ?

Thanks guys.

Allan.

Hi Allan,like you computers arn't my thing but i would imagine that if they show up in slideshow view they will have been in the gallery all the time.Unfortunately the gallery is a third party add on to the forum and that person no longer sells it to anybody or indeed maintains older versions.If no one comes up with a solution i will contact the forum host but i don't hold out much hope.

Hi Alan.

I don't mind my pictures turning up on the Forum slideshow as it's an automatic back up to ones files - even a few of me latest pictures have turned up that nobody has ever seen yet !

So, may I suggest we leave it as is ? - I was only curious, and pleased,  that they are indeed there to be viewed and what does the 'image removed' icon mean as there's quite a number of them - my Lilly La Femme files perhaps !!

Thank you all the same.

Allan.


Oh, and if you think you could use any of them, then please do so but they reproduce very small.

Hi Allan

It will be a bit of work, but you can take your photos back by right clicking on each one and then "Save save image as."

Then save it in a folder in Documents or Pictures.

Almost any image can be stolen this way.  :lol:

Thanks Alan, I tried deleting the 'removed images icon' but I couldn't delete them.


Hi Max, I can right click on each individual photo and save it into my files though it will take hours to do the whole lot  and, even when I have,  they only reproduce as little more than a postage stamp in dimensions !


Anyway, I'll have a play around later when I've got more time


So thank you for now gentlemen and I'll let you know how I get on later.


Allan.

If you still have the hard drive we could pass our data recovery tools through it and see what we can recover for you.
Our record is a recovery after 7 formats of the hard drive. We have also done camera memory sticks.

Hi Andrew.

All I can say about my hard drive is that it's the same one when I bought the computer and I haven't a clue where it is and what it looks like.

Many thanks.

Allan.

Alan I came across this post while working on the scratchbuild area. No Idea If you have already recovered the photos but thought I would add to Max's comment on copying them off the Gallery. 
  When you upload an Image to the Gallery the software stores the Full Image but also a thumbnail of that Image. when you view your Images in the Gallery you see pages with between 1 and 12 Images per page depending on your personal settings. These are just the thumbnail Images you see and right clicking on these to save them just saves the thumbnail.

  To save the full size Image, first left click on the thumbnail which opens a box with the full size Image on display, Now right click on THAT Image and 'save Image as'  and you will have the full size Image. 

  Even if you remove an Image from a post it will still be in your gallery so I'm guessing that at some time a glitch removed the links from your posts to the Images in your gallery, but NOT the Images from your Gallery.  If you remove an image from the Gallery using the delete option, that Image is no longer in the Gallery and will no longer be displayed in any posts it was linked to, you will just see the 'Image no longer in gallery' box in your post.
 
 You CAN delete this 'Image no longer in Gallery' box from within a post as its just the same as a normal Image but put in by the gallery software as it cant find the original Image. To delete it you have to edit your post and then click on the VERY EDGE of the image (right or left side) so that you see a black flashing line, now hit your delete button and then re save the post.

  You have 134 pages in the gallery totalling approx 1600 Images

Once again please bear in mind if you remove an Image from your gallery, it will no longer appear in ANY post it has been linked to
  
 Hope this helps

Cheers

Matt
