Keeping (most of) my photos restricted to my private blogs

Travel Forums System Talk Keeping (most of) my photos restricted to my private blogs

1. Posted by daanjj (First Time Poster 1 posts) 6w Star this if you like it!

Hi there!

I recently discovered that all my 369 photos are accessible to everybody, even though I had intended the majority of them to be only accessible to people reading my (private) travel blogs. I an happy to share photos of splendid nature, flora and fauna but I like to keep photos showing my family to just be accessible to private blog readers only.

I understand this can be arranged via the 'Show in Gallery' checkbox. Having also read various blog posts here, I now actually are 2 questions:

  1. If I remove the 'Show in Gallery' checkmark from photos used in my private blogs, do I need to manually re-insert them in my blog (which would be a big nuisance) or is that not necessary (and thus continue to be visible in my blogs)?
  2. Is there a way to bulk-edit my photos or should I proceed one by one (which will take quite some time for 369 photos)?

Thanks!

Daan

No, even if you have 'Show in Gallery' unticked the photos will still show up in your blog, public or private

You can open the editing function for 100 photos at a time by going to 'My photos' and checking the box top left, just under the edit button, and then clicking that edit button. But you will need to untick 'Show in Gallery' on each individually.
