Hey guys, I made a small image gallery. The main purpose is for inspiration but the images are at least under the http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/ so you can use them in your templates. No guarantee, tho, since I can’t be responsible for uploaded images where the uploader does not own the copyright.

http://albumarium.com

I’ll be more than happy if you upload your images there or if you give me some feedback about what to improve.

Thanks :). There isn’t a lot of content, yet, but that will hopefully change soon.

Feedback:
  • I miss the menu on homepage.
  • Upload button on homepage,. Why would I go to an album if I want just to upload, I should be able to do this from homepage.
  • Add a confirm button for report button or the text “Report this image”, something explainatory. Right now I clicked it once because I had no idea what is this for.
  • The upload form is not user friendly, and I have the impresion that its development is not finished. Also let the users to specify the license and some other info(ex: website.)
  • Bulk upload is also a good feature. What if I would like to upload 100 photos at once?

Cheers. ;)

Thanks for the feedback, Smartik!

  • there is no need for a menu, users should use only the search function.
  • there are specific “albums” for specific images, so the upload buttons relates only to the album where the user is, so uploading from homepage wouldn’t be possible
  • I’ll try to do something with the report function
  • You are right, the upload form is working, but the UX is bad and it isn’t properly coded, I’m trying to solve this with my developer
  • You can upload as many photos at once as you want, but yea, for like 50+ it becames uncomfortable, I’ll think about how to improve this.

* Then probably a better filter, I’m sure most of the users prefer to click and and not type. Maybe you can add a drop-down menu to search box on click with all albums and filter them when the start typying. Aka, autocomplete.
* I saw that, but anyways I don’t find it to be good choice, I still want it on homepage :)

Anyways, this is a fresh project and I’m sure you’ll have to add/change a lot of things but try to collect feedback from users and make it so how the community want it to be. The best is to add a link somewhere with a special form designed for feedback.
Good luck. ;)

Loving the look of it and already some nice fresh photos in. Congrats!

As Smartik said, I too feel the need for an easier album navigation. I would have expected the search to search for actual images, not albums. I feel there’s a need to quickly browse/access albums. I was looking for a category/album list somewhere…

One idea would be to make the homepage albums scrollable horizontally or at least a drag/touch/swipe to slide through them.

On album page, might be a nice idea if the album title would be a drop down with the rest of albums to quickly switch through available albums.

Good job and good initiative! Cheers,

Alex

It’s an amazing idea, beautiful design, everything! :) For me though the above would stop me from ever using it. If you could ever find a way to regulate that then I think you’ll have a massively popular site there :)
