    optional feature request: sound related photos


    sometimes, when people do the field recordingds - they also shot photos. would be nice to make possible to add them. now - regarding image adding, there should be some regulations (should it be photos or all kind of images? how many per sample? copyrighted by user only, moderated with sound uploads, and so on and so forth), but I see two interesting expansion directions.

    1) small photos (automatically resized and recompressed by system) - which add the taste (and some context) to uploaded field recordings.

    2) big photos, with the CC licence for further use by downloaders. making coverarts, wallpapers, brochures and so on.

    thumbnails could be loaded automatically with samplepage or onClick.

    just an idea.

    I like the idea. It'd help to identify sound clips better. Photos should be licensed under CC-BY or CC-BY-SA.

    Can do this via a link to the photo on Flickr in description or comment. e.g. ... http://www.freesound.org/samplesViewSingle.php?id=53683

    Well, it's a workaround, not the solution: the picture is not shown on the page, and the link is not even working, you have to copy+paste it manually (or may be use some Javascript browser trick). Also, links to external websites may become broken in the future.

    that link works for me ... http://www.flickr.com/photos/59953034@N00/2501526225/in/pool-freesound/ (yes you have to copy and paste, but if the link was in "comments" the link would be "hot"wink

    I may be mistaken, but I believe the new version of Freesound (should it ever become a reality) was possibly going to have some sort of image integration. Is that vague enough?

    I can't see a specific option for "image integration" in the Beta version of FS2... http://tabasco.upf.edu/people/Timbre/sounds/121327/
