Linking images from gallery to Personal collection?
« on: January 12, 2017, 04:14:17 PM »
Hi all,

I am new to this site and I am starting to upload my collection to this site. However, I had a question.

when I add a currency banknote to my collection, it asks me to upload an image. I see that the image exists in the gallery. Do I need to upload the image again? Is there no provision to link the image from the gallery to my collection?

Please advise.

As a belated reply, the answer is Yes, you can link a gallery image to your collection.  Just go into the gallery, select and view a note of interest, and execute the 'Add to Collection' feature. 

So your collection will have the gallery note imaged, not your own note.  The image will be 'ghosted'.  If you want your own note imaged, you need to upload that image from your personal hard drive.

If you want a collection record for insurance purposes, it's probably best to upload your own images.
