Upload Your Whisky Images
Some numbers and figures may not match what you find in the Whiskystats 2.0 database.
It is finally here, the new Whiskystats feature. You can now upload images of your whisky bottles to our database. Start sharing your pictures with the Whiskystats community!
In our first ever Whiskystats poll from early August 2017 we asked our community which new feature they would wish for. Almost 70% opted for “Whisky Images” and hence we set out to implement this request. We now reached the point of release for this new update.
How It Works
For each and every whisky in our database you will now see a bar depicting the image controls. Simply click on this bar to see the controls and the images already uploaded for this whisky.
There you also have the possibility to add a new image. Choose the image you want to upload from your files (or take a picture if you are using a smartphone) and select the area with the bottle in it. Then click on the upload button (the arrow pointing upwards). That´s it. The picture will be visible to all other users as soon as it was approved by us. Take a look at the Hanyu Joker to see how this looks.
We allow for at max three images per whisky. For the time being the images are only displayed on the whisky pages. As soon as we reach a decent number of uploaded images we also plan to display them in other places like the search results of the database or your collection´s overview.
