  1. Authentication auth, ntlm, ldap, http

    Add authentication auth, ntlm, ldap, http for an opening of OpenPhoto and a best integration to a webserver like http://yunohost.org/?lang=en. Decentralized webapps must be as flexible as Kate Middleton oh yeah

    • IOS app uses wrong thumbnail when sharing to Facebook

      When I share a photo to Facebook from the iPhone app, the link it posts is to the correct photo, but the thumbnail selected is nearly always from the wrong photo.

                • Gallery 3 API support

                  I really like the direction of OpenPhoto, but I'm also invested in eyefi to get pictures off my camera and cell phone all to the same location. eyefi supports a number of back ends, so if OpenPhoto implemented the Gallery3 REST API for upload, it could be easily pointed to from the eyefi upload services. Would be totally awesome.

                    • OAuth error when uploading photos: oauth_problem=verifier_invalid

                      I'm trying out the new OAuth token support in openphoto.me - thanks for adding this recently!

                      I can retrieve photo metadata from /photos/list.json, but uploading new photos is proving to be a problem.

                      Using openphoto-php:

                      ./openphoto -vp -X POST -h <hostname>.openphoto.me -e /photo/upload.json -F 'photo=@test.jpg' --encode
                      ==========
                      Method: post
                      Host: <hostname>.openphoto.me
                      Endpoint: /photo/upload.json
                      ==========

                      {
                      "message" : "oauth_problem=verifier_invalid",
                      "code" : 403,
                      "result" : null
                      }

                      I see the same problem using the python bindings. Any ideas?

                      Thanks,
                      Pete

                      • Any plans to support Amazon Glacier?

                        The new Amazon Glacier service seems really neat, though I'm curious how the 'archive' storage strategy could be used efficiently with photos. Ideally, openphoto would optimize for cost-savings, perhaps holding photos in a queue (using Dropbox as a 'temp' storage area) until a threshold is reached before uploading to Glacier, reducing the overall number of UPLOAD requests.

                        • more customize options in settings

                          most people want to have the ability to set the default permission to private in settings, same goes for license, like say you have "all rights reserved" for your family photos, and have one or two creative albums you want to be Creative Commons

                          • Photos that were uploaded as public and then changed to private are still shown in latest activity

                            I've uploaded some photos as public (by mistake) and then changed them to private but their thumbnails are still shown in "Latest activity".

                            Fortunately they are shown only as thumbnails and links are inactive, but I think that not even a thumbnail of a private photo should be public.

                            When photos are uploaded as private everything works as it should be.

                                  I noticed the Albums are sorted A-Z, is it possible to have them sorted by date? As in: the album with newest photos is on top etc.

                                    • Add the Free Art License (FAL) to recognized licenses

                                      The Free Art License is a free copyleft license for works of art (in a broad sense). Since the upload form currently gives the choice of opting for one of the Creative Commons licenses, it would be helpful to add the FAL to the mix.

                                      The Free Art License is used for numerous works: more than 70000, for example, on Wikicommons (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:FAL ).

                                      It is also officially recommended by the Free Software Foundation, under the following terms: "We don't take the position that artistic or entertainment works must be free, but if you want to make one free, we…

                                      • Change Creation Date

                                        I would like to change the creation date on some of my photos, as it errantly shows the date of upload, not the date of creation. I can't find any way to edit that date in the photo's settings

                                          It would be nice to allow auth and rights from an ldap server.
