  • How to upload images to the Image Hive

    To upload images you need to go to the Limbo gallery and (into) the 'Upload your images here' album.

    Next, click on the Add items link on the left-hand sidebar.

    You'll then see a page with the instructions:
    Upload files directly from your computer. Enter the full path to the file and an optional caption in the boxes below.

    Note: You can upload up to 8 megabytes at one time. No individual file may be larger than 7 megabytes. If you want to upload more than that, you must upload the files separately, use a different upload format, or ask your system administrator to allow larger uploads.

    Beneath these instructions are two fields (File/Caption) repeated twice; below that is an option to Add More Upload Boxes... so if you have more than two images to upload click the link to add more boxes.

    You can use the Caption field to include any information which may not be immediately obvious from the image itself (say, bibliographical info for the book/picture in question). The Hive's Chaos Engineers can/will tweak/polish the final upload to bring it in line with our current standards, so don't worry if final upload looks messy.

    If you include your username we'll make sure you're properly credited as the scanner (assuming you scanned the images yourself). If taken from another website, please include a credit.

    When you've finished - or reached the max upload limits above - click 'Add items' and wait. Rinse and repeat as necessary.

    When scanning please I'd recommend using 200dpi as a good 'average' for your scans; very much lower and the images will be too small and may exhibit 'moire patterning', very much higher they will be too large for most screens. Crop them as close to the edges of the book as possible, but the Chaos Engineers can always tweak images themselves if necessary.

    Hope that gives some basic pointers. Any questions on anything, please ask.

    _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
    _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
    _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
    _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."
