Group Images into Sessions

Hi,

I would like to suggest a function to be able to group images into 'sessions', i.e. when I image several details of an object (moon, sun, …smile on one day using the same equipment I would like to present them as a set instead of uploading each image in its own context.

Thanks for considering->Robert

I really like this idea, but it's probably not going to be a top priority to implement in the near future..

Thanks for the suggestion, Robert. I think that the majority of users here thinks in terms of imaging a single object over multiple nights, rather than multiple objects per night. 

So as Ethan said, with all the bazillion things that need to be done, I don't see this happening any time soon, sorry. However it would be pretty straightforward to implement, so at some point I could add it.

Hi, everybody!

I have a similar idea, which in some way contains Robert's idea.

Sometimes people want to show not just one image of the object, but several pictures of the same object. For example, it can be a interesting crop of the picture, one particularly interesting channel or some gif movie. Uploading a new image often seems not quite right, so people use revisions, which isn't very convenient (because it was created for another purpose).

So I think there will be useful to be able to upload several images in a one "mini-project" with different descriptions  and, optionally, different dates and/or imaging parameters.

IMHO, this wil bring AB to a new level, because everybody will be able not just to upload one picture, but to tell a story about it. This, probably, will not be very popular, but some people will use this feature.

Best Regards,
Nikita

Nikita, basically you're talking about custom albums. That's indeed in the pipeline!

Hi all, hi Salvatore,

the idea of imaging one object over several nights only holds true for deep sky imaging. It is the other way around for planetary/lunar/solar work. For example, when I image the sun, there are whole disk views, several details as active regions or proms imaged within one session, i.e. within few *minutes*. Also, fetaures change their view within one session. Last session, I had at least 6 images taken within minutes. For now, I have to use 6 image slots, which prevents me of uploading all of them.
I like the idea of organizing those sessions in a very similar manner as revisions are handled today. Only every image would have their own descrption.

Dang, forgot about that again! I was a few seconds away from asking for a teeny tiny thing to be tweaked but now I might have to have a crack at it myself.

Great! Let me know if you need help with setting up the environment!
