Question about uploading duplicate images

Post by kenmcdougalphoto » Fri Oct 25, 2019 4:35 pm

Hey all,

I was just thinking. Many people on this platform have hundreds if not
thousands of photos. At this posting, I'm up to 117 images myself.

My question is ...

Is there anything in the software on this platform that if you accidentally
upload a "duplicate" image of one that you have uploaded before, can the
system detect that and flag it, so it stops the upload and warns you that
this photo that you are trying to upload, already exists on your profile page?

As I add more and more images, sometimes it's tough for me to remember
if I uploaded that image previously. It's tough getting older. :lol:

Just curious?

Ken :D

I personally believe that is a good idea to repost the photos that have gone well on the past, because new people maybe will not go all the way down your upload to check them. I have done that on a few and they pick a lot of views again.

You'd be better off sharing the original post rather than reuploading. Photos with more views are found easier and tend to self perpetuate their views

Hi Ken

I have loads of photos too lol and I've just made a new folder in the folder that the photos are in and as I upload them to CAS I just move them into that new folder, that way I can keep a record of what I have and have not uploaded, hope this helps
