That picture downloader blows.

Travel Forums System Talk That picture downloader blows.

So I tried to expand my presence here and add some pics. If the downloader doesn't recognize the location you input, it won't let you input the picture...That is ridiculous. I tried to write the complete city name for Cartagena, (Cartagena de Indias) and it wouldn't accept it. Tried to add a pic from a small town in Guat called San Andres (where they have an international bank machine, by the way) but the dowloader never heard of that town, so I couldn't add that either. That'll be my last attempt at adding a picture here.

I do agree the current location autocomplete box is far from ideal. However, you can just fill in only the country name for photos (same as you'd select from the selectbox in the old upload screen), and that will be accepted. (And then if you want to position the photo accurately in a town which isn't in the database, doing that is possible on the map screen.)

Hey Piecar, we are aware that it rather sucks at some locations. And we are in the process of making a change that will fix this - but it will still be some time till it's done. In the meanwhile, using the country is always possible.

hi Piecar,
I use the description aerea for the location.
I take a lot of photos on Bonaire/Netherlands Antilles where I live,but I can Not use Bonaire as location only Netherlands Antilles.
Netherlands Antilles is a group of 5 Islands(Curacao,Bonaire,St.Marteen,St.Eustatius,Saba)

Thanks all. I'll use your workarounds.
