The big news is that we’re now making the shared images in the image library available for everybody’s use. This means anybody can dress up their post by pulling from the tens of thousands of images in the library. There are some really wonderful images there, like all these images of wildlife I found in the image library. Putting an image in your story is an easy and very effective way to get more readership. We find that stories with images share much better and grab users’ attention better once they find your story. If you see an image in the library, it's available for your use.
We’ve also overhauled the search so that you can find the image you are looking for quickly. Now that we have more than 70,000 images in the library, many are feeling the need to search on specific attributes, say who uploaded the image. Or, try filtering on staff_uploaded to find quality images purchased for use on Daily Kos. Open the image library and click into the search box for a list of attributes you can use to refine your search.
Also part of this release:
- You can now edit the attribution on multiple images at once. So, if you are uploading a batch of images from one source you can get proper attribution on them all quickly.
- Deleting an image works again.
- Few other small fixes.
- Image Library is now linked from everyone's welcome back box.
