I think it would be nice if people could upload a small (320x240 max?) image to their sounds.
For some like Sonic and myself, who take pictures of the sounds they recorded) it migth be a usefull feature to see what a source was in some cases.
For others, it could mean a possibility to give a personal touch to the page that holds their sounds. Perhaps this will remind some of the users that theirs people recording/creating these sounds not machines or abstract nicks
On the other hand i see the danger of it becoming a place for big ugly blinking banners which is obviously something that we dont want over here.
not a bad idea...! I was thinking myself how we can make the sound pages more personal, or at least the comments and personal pages... Perhaps I should start using the phpBB avatars in comments as well...
Any more ideas anyone?
Avatars would be cool, images on sounds would be a cool one too indeed. Not sure how many peoople will use that tho.
On the other side, non limited size signatures or the like makes a mess often on forums.
The user info could take the look of a little blog maybe. Some pics and maybe the ability of linking to other users or featured sounds i like.
Do you get the picture? how does that sounds?
Or perhaps a simple gallery of sorts?
As a interface addition to the idea.
Maybe it would be usefull to have a standard image directory in your FTP folder here at freesound. I guess the folder than can be restricted to a certain amount of data. And in this way make a pop-up box at your sounds where you can easily select your images. Because image reuse will probably occour a lot (logo's ect.)
The dozer sounds/images from Sonic sparked this idea for me and ive been taking pictures of my field recordings since that time.
a different side of the sound/image issue: after some learning on sonograms, within a comment I have added a link to the first done by me, have a look. Spectral views are great!
It corresponds to sound ID=4207
I would be most interested in being able to upload an image of the subject or location of my field recordings.
You can Geotag your field recording when looking at detailed view. Ask Bram about adding pictures! Happy New Year!
I'd love to be able to add an image of the old lady featured in "OlgaNR1.mp3"
