How to Build a Shed in OldHolden:

Register a Shed:

Step 1 - Register
1) Sign up HERE to get yourself a Shed, I have a different password for my Shed so assume that this is the norm?

Step 7 - Back to Album

Back to Album:

7) Now look to your left, you will see the little section called; "Navigation".
Mine has "Back to Album", now I am sure here will be the initial steps to creating your Shed?

This may take you back to the main shed page, now browse back to your own shed.   
Step 8 - Album Actions)

Album Actions:

8) Ok now, looking at my Album I see a Drop Down Box with "Album Actions" in it, you can toy around in there and set up your preferences etc (But I am bailing and going straight into my Shed, clicking on the Thumbnail picture opens my Shed for me...)   
Step 9 - Album option links

Album Option Links:

9) Ok once you have opened your Shed/Album, look down the bottom and you will see the following links;
Add Album - Add Comment - Add Items - Delete Album - Edit Album - Edit Captions - Edit Permissions - Make Highlight - Move Album -
Rearrange Items - Reorder Items - View Slideshow - View Slideshow (Full screen).   
Step 10 - Add new sub album

Add New Sub-Album:

10) To create a new Album to place your pictures into; Click on Add Album.
Now you will see the following (In my case anyways)

Add Sub-Album

Name (required)
The name of this album is on your hard disk. It must be unique in this album. Only use alphanumeric characters, underscores or dashes. You will be able to rename it later.

Ok mine reads:
/Pigs-Old-FX-Custom/ (Insert/Type the name of your new Album here) e.g.: It could be called "Welcome_to_my_Build-up_Pictures"

Title
This is the album title.
(Type in the name of your New Album) e.g.: "Welcome to my Build-up Pictures"

Keywords
Keywords are not visible, but are searchable.
(Ok here I will put the words that are searchable in Search Engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN etc, e.g.: you could choose the following)
Holden HQ Sedan GTS Monaro (Whatever is applicable to searches leading to your car)

Description
This is the long description of the album.
(e.g.: You could put the following message ;)
Hi welcome to my album, I wanted to show you guys my Holden... yada yada yada (Get the gist of it now?)

Step 11 - Create Album

Create Album:

11) Ok once you have filled in all relevant details, click on the button down to your bottom left titled "Create".

Step 12 - Album Created

Album Created:

12) Now if all has gone successfully you will see the following:
Edit Album

Album created successfully. (Woohoo!!)
Ok for now I would suggest you leave all the settings as standard and you can change these at a later time when you gain more experience.

Click Save

Saving the Album:

Click on the Button on your bottom left titled "Save".

Step 13 - Options

Back to album

Now I want to add my pictures to my new Album, so I will select the following titled; "Add Items"

Add Items

Adding Items:

Now in this section "Add Items" you will see the following Tabs;
From Web Browser:
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 10 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.

From Local Server:
Transfer files that are already on your server into your Gallery. The files must already have been uploaded to your server some other way (like FTP) and must be placed in a directory where they are accessibly by any element on the server. If you're on UNIX this means that the files and the directory the files are in should have modes of at least 755.
For security purposes, you can't use this feature until the Gallery Site Administrator configures a set of legal upload directories.

From Web Page:
Import files into Gallery from another website. Enter a URL below to a web page anywhere on the net and Gallery will allow you to upload any media files that it finds on that page. Note that if you're entering a URL to a directory, you should end the URL with a trailing slash (e.g., http://example.com/directory/).

Windows XP:
Windows XP comes with a nice feature that allows you to publish content from your desktop directly to a web service. Follow the instructions below to enable this service on your Windows XP system.
Step 1
Download the configuration file using right-click 'Save Target As...' Once downloaded, rename it to 'install_registry.reg'. If it asks you for confirmation about changing the file type, answer 'yes'. Right click on this file and you should see a menu appear. Select the
Merge option (this should be at the top of the menu). It will ask you if you want to import these values into your registry. Click 'Ok'.
It will tell you that the files were imported successfully. Click 'Ok' again.
Download [install_registry.reg]
Step 2
Open your Windows Explorer and browse to a folder containing supported images. Select the image(s) or a folder and there should be a link on the left that says 'Publish this file to the web...' Click this link and then follow the instructions to log into your Gallery, select an album and publish the image.

Upload Applet:
(Now this is the method I prefer to use so will cover this one, others may add to how to use the other methods if this won't work for you - you will find the instructions for this one at Step 14)

Web Cam/Live Image:
When I click on this Tab it closes my Shed and gives me an error message, I don't know what it will do for you?
Enter at own risk!

Gallery Remote:
Gallery Remote is a Java application that runs on your desktop computer and provides a rich interface to Gallery. With Gallery Remote you can drag and drop to photos to upload them to Gallery, rotate and resize your images before uploading, and even view the photos in your Gallery in a slideshow on your desktop computer. You must install Gallery Remote 1.4 or newer to use it with this version of Gallery.
Download Gallery Remote
(Note: I tried this once and it gave me problems so went back to "Upload Applet")

Step 14 - Using the Upload Applet

Using the Upload Applet:

14) Ok now back to what works for me;

Upload Applet:
(Now this is the method I prefer to use so will cover this one, others may add to how to use the other methods if this won't work for you)
A Java Applet will pop up with the following message;
Do you want to trust the signed Applet distributed by "Galley"? (Click on Yes)

Once the Applet has loaded you will see the Up Load box with the following message;
List of Pictures to Up Load (Drag & Drop or click on Add Pictures function)

Now from here you should have the hang of things but I will continue just in case;

Click on Add Pictures.
You will get a Popup Box, Browse to the folder where you have your pictures to upload, Select the desired pictures, then click on "Add"(if you are on Dialup, you might want to only select say; 5 pictures at a time in case you break your internet connection)

Then once the pictures are added, look to your bottom right and click on the button titled "Up Load".

Then it is just a matter of repeating the process, to add more pictures just click on the "Add Pictures" button, select the next lot of pictures then click on the "Up Load" button.

*NOTE*
Should you need to update or acquire Sun Java you need to click on "Accept Agreement" and then choose your OS and the "Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language" link.

Another option for Uploading Images:=

A) Open Your Shed and Log in
B) Go to the bottom, see "Add Items"? Click on that
C) When you are in the "Add Items" section, look at the Tabs at the top, Click on "Windows XP" Here is what it says in that section:
Windows XP:
Windows XP comes with a nice feature that allows you to publish content from your desktop directly
to a web service. Follow the instructions below to enable this service on your Windows XP system.
Step 1
Download the configuration file using right-click 'Save Target As...' Once downloaded, rename it to
'install_registry.reg'. If it asks you for confirmation about changing the file type, answer
'yes'. Right click on this file and you should see a menu appear. Select the Merge option (this
should be at the top of the menu). It will ask you if you want to import these values into your
registry. Click 'Ok'. It will tell you that the files were imported successfully. Click 'Ok' again.
Download install_registry.reg
Step 2
Open your Windows Explorer and browse to a folder containing supported images. Select the image(s)
or a folder and there should be a link on the left that says 'Publish this file to the web...' Click
this link and then follow the instructions to log into your Gallery, select an album and publish
the image.
D) Download and Install the file - Reboot (It may help, I had to with XP)
E) Open 'My Computer'
F) Browse to the folder whare you have the images you wish to upload
G) Select the pictures you wish to upload
H) Look to the left in the panel, you will see "Publish the selected items to the Web" Click on that Then, Click on "Next"
I) Check your images, if you have placed ALL the images you wish to upload into their own folder, then Click on "Select All" Click on "Next"
J) Then you should see the Old Holden Sheds Gallery icon (maybe if you have already uploaded before?)
Highlight the Old Holden Logo - Click on "Next"
K) Next you will need to login..... "Log in" Click on "Next"
L) Next if you have multiple Albums, you will need to choose which Album you need to Upload to... "Choose" Then Click on "Next"
M) Next you will have the options of "Strip file extensions" and Set captions on the published items? I untick "Strip file extensions" (I don't know why but I don't like the sounds of it hehe) Then Click on "Next"
N) Now, wait for them to upload...
O) Now when finished you should have a box with "Completing the Web Publishing Wizard" written at the top, if you want to go on and check your uploaded images make sure that the "Open this site when I click Finish" box is ticked Then Click on the "Finish" button...

*TIP*If you have more than one page of images and need to relocate the latest uloaded images to Page One follow this tip:
1) Down the bottom of Page One you will see; Page: 1 2 3 etc - eg: Now Right Click on '3' and Click on "Open in New Window
2) Again scroll to the bottom of the Page and then click on; Reorder Items
3) Now you should be in the "Reorder Album" Page; now you will see two drop boxes, firstly Click on the top one to choose which image it is you wish to move to eg: Page One and choose the image
4) Now, Click on the second drop box and choose to 'where' you wish to relocate the image *hint* Whatever you choose it will slot in behind THAT image ok
5) Now, Click on "Reorder"
Easy eh? Now just keep on repeating until you have relocated all your new images to where you want them.

Final Word:

You have now created your Album ;{D
Now all you need to do is check out your preferences and make it look pretty hehe

TIP; Check out a few sheds belonging to the other guys, some use different formats from the options where as I leave mine pretty much 'Run it as ya see it'!

Ok I hope this has steered some of you in the right direction to opening your own Shed here to upload your pictures of your old faithful for others to enjoy also?
