All members can add pictures to the Gallery (there is no option for "everyone can add pictures"--that much, I think, makes sense). I've googled for copyright-free images and I hope that's what they are, but at any rate, if they rotate often enough I hope we'll avoid hassles.

I've added a few pictures to the gallery, my faves of course, and I hope everyone else does the same.

Is there a need to specify rotation periods? A few days, a week? I'd rather make it shorter than longer so that all choices get exposure.

Arrgh! All members can add pictures, but they can only make the pictures they uploaded be "primary picture".

Off to discuss this, meanwhile, sorry, whatever picture you'd like to see on the group page you'll have to upload--even if it's already in the gallery, if someone else put it there you can't select it.

Just a reminder that all members can add group pictures--indeed, unfortunately that is the only way you can get a picture of your choice to load (just how LT works). I've decided to randomly select a picture in the gallery every time I remember to log into the other account, so if you start uploading them, I'll use those too.

Note that as you upload the pictures, the last one will always displace the previous (on the page, they will all still be in the gallery).

Lola, can all members still add group pictures? I can't seem to figure out how to do that.

Never mind, figured it out!

Hi, yeah, it's available to all! (And so's the bossing of the group! Executive office, buff secretaries, and gajillion runkles a year! Apply here now!)

Did you make the collage? Cool!

Yes, I made two collages using the pictures that you already uploaded. I figured that might be more inclusive than a single picture at a time and less work than you having to continually rotate the profile picture. Plus I saw something similar (and better done) on the Legacy Libraries group -- https://www.librarything.com/pic/228135

I used the free PhotoCollage.net for this, which is sufficient for basic projects like these. But not as fancy as whoever did the Legacy Libraries montage.
