New Albums ... With a New Naming Convention:

EDIT @ 03:35 AM on Sunday, July 15th, 2018...

This next, New Album on TOOLS at the top of the list is about as much as I could get done this morning before needing to get some sleep... More will soon follow on ...after I get some"Shut Eye":

It is no secret that the transition with Photobucket that began back in April of 2018 has caused no end of grief to those of us who...though “Paying Customers” .., have essentially been either “Locked Out” or “Blocked Out” of our own accounts. Apparently this issue is tangentially involving “Third Party Hosting” that is either causing a decline in revenue in some manner or other… and by locking users like me out of our online image accounts… they will force us all to pay for the additional privilege of not only allowing them to make the almighty advertising dollars from the “views” of our work...in my case... that hit rate has been around 175,000 since 2011… but also charge us more money as well.

Since Photobucket has been nothing but silent to any and all emails and RFH that I have sent to them… I am moving the entire lot of this enormous amount of time and effort to help others… over to Flickr.com and this translates into my having One Terabyte of Free On-Line Storage of all the images that have been linked to each and every project that I have either posted or contributed to here at GMT Nation. I have only just begun to scratch the surface of what Flickr seems to offer and I can see that they are head and shoulders… better in every way ...in the services they provide to all General Public and Yahoo Mail Users in particular … ergo... all of of whom become automatic Flickr.com Members.

And while this transition for me is still in its infancy… The identical link ...above and below... is to the Very First Album that I have successfully uploaded to Flickr.com this morning via their Photostream process… and deposited into an Album ... GM_04_42L_NEW_ENGINE_PARTS...that will follow a more logical Naming Convention. Our Members should also know that I have taken the time to scour all of the 5,000 images I have kept on hand that were incomplete as sets are now going to be properly re-organized to become more comprehensive… and less in need of cross-checking albums in order to “Get To See The Whole Picture”.

Well… All that remains now is for me to get some input from our folks as to the following issues:

(1) Are you able to open this link and view ALL of the Public Images inside of this One Album?

(2) Will Flickr.com penalize my account for posting this "Third Party" link here at GMT Nation as Photobucket seems to have done to my Old Account?

(3) How can I make these Album(s) and Images available for GMTN Cellular Phone and Facebook Users... without my needing to have a Facebook Account myself?

Once I have obtained answers to these Questions and know that posting and publishing my Albums on Flickr.com works… I will add all of the rest of them by their New Naming Conventions as a follow up message to this post, listing each unique Album Link so they can all become available again.

Ultimately, I would like to be able to correct each and every broken link to the major posts where these images have proven to be an indispensable help to many Members... But I’ll need some assistance from our people to figure all of these matters out before I will continue doing any more work as there is no point in doing so... if the interest is not here.

These are the other Flickr.com specific GM Automotive Image Albums that I've finished preparing. These are sitting on my Desktop waiting to be Uploaded and It only remains to obtain some additional Feedback from a few more GMTN Members before I'll attempt their transfer to their likewise-named Flickr.com Albums. For the sake of keeping their Names/Links readily available... I'll Edit the top of Post Message #1 and place this list there to simplify getting to all of these from One Post as soon as I know they have arrived at Flickr.com and open up to proper functionality:

Why are you concerned with mobile and facebook users accessing your files? You won't be posting to facebook if you are not a user. Mobile should not have any issues either.

When you Google for "GMT Nation"... The very first link that pops to the search list... is FaceBook. But... Since I don't use Facebook ...just as you say... I've no way of knowing how it works when it comes to accessing sites like Photobook or Flickr. So in an honest desire to be as democratic as possible ... my only concern about any Mobile and FaceBook issues is that it seems to be a vital part of GMT Nation.

So whether I personally like using FaceBook or not ...is irrelevant. I just wanted to explore that possibility up front with any GMTN Members that use only their Cell Phones as their Desktop/Laptop substitutes to confirm they can actually use that feature on Flickr with my Publc Image Albums. I'm sure I deserve neither praise nor censure for making this effort. Unless of course all of what I am trying to do here... is creating a problem.

If your albums are set to public I would not worry too much about it, they should be able to view it fine. Flickr is part of the yahoo.com toolset. Though Facebook has a plugin and links for here it does not mean that don't have to be members of the site to do much of anything.

When they do a search and they decide to look for photos they will never end up coming to the site if they are hosted on Flickr. They will be sent to Flickr.

Thanks for the complete explanation, Larry... I think it is worth mentioning that Flickr has made it possible now to Download an entire Album with a single click. I'm not certain if Yahoo-Flickr demands membership via a Yahoo Email Account... but that could come in very handy ...and as always ... As long as Grass is Green and Skies are Blue... My Albums will ALWAYS be Public and accessible. Now I've just got to "churn and burn" the Midnight Oil to get these all loaded up. As each one finishes and tests for viewing Okay... I'll Edit the List on the very top of Post #1.

I believe yahoo requires them to be a member in order to download the entire album, or it is an option, it asked me to login when I went to the link. I have had a yahoo account almost since they started.

Okay… In spite of some inexplicable obstacles that I had to overcome in order to actually get the Bulk of these Images to upload properly… Thanks entirely to the use of a Linux Mint Image Uploading Application called “FROGR”… I was finally able to make some excellent progress with this Project. Now that I’ve escaped from the “Bulk Image Uploading Mine Field” ...I’ll continue to add the other historical Albums and keep all of them updated and refreshed from now on; even as New Images are being created. I could still use some Member Help to examine all of these links listed below to ensure that they all Open properly and that these Images do indeed appear Publicly Available....Much Obliged in Advance:

MRRSM FLICKR SITE MAIN PAGE:

If you visit this First Link and can see the Page Banner as it appears in this Image taken from an Oil Painting I did many years ago and called “A Walk In The Woods” ...Then you’ll have arrived:
