16. August 2017 | 227 Views | 6 Postings

The Whiskystats community made its decision. The next Whiskystats update will bring the possibility to upload pictures to the whiskies in our database. Thanks for voting! 

In our first ever development poll, more than 68% of the Whiskystats members voted for option one, the whisky images. Hence we will start work to give you the possibility to upload images to each an every one of the whiskies in our whisky database.
Details of first dev-poll Thanks to all of you who left their vote. As we have already mentioned, also those who voted for the database expansion will not be unheard.

    Hallo from Sweden
    I am very glad to see that you will develope the whiskystas with images. I hope that this will help me to create my Collection with the correct bottles .In that I hope that the pictures will be seen together with text when you select the correct bottle from your database .
    Best regards Pye

    Hi Pye,
    do you mean that the images shall be visible also in the result list of the database search and not only when you click on a whisky to see its details?
    Best wishes,
    Johannes

    Hi
    Sorry not answering earlier.
    Didnt know I had a response to my suggestion.
    Yes I would like the image should be seen when you are building up your
    collection. The reason is that you may not have the exact figures or casknumbers in your hand if it maybe stuffed somewhere but you know how it looks like

    Hi Pye,
    its now possible to upload images (see here). At the moment the images will only be displayed on the whisky site (like here). We will at some point also display them in other places (like your collection´s overview).

    Best wishes,
    Johannes from Whiskystats

    Hi again , thanks
    Nice to have a quick answer.
    Another place where a thumbnail could be useful would be on the whisky database site so it would be easier to select the correct bottle as you select them .
    What about my images? Is it OK only to show the front lables,I mean the bottles itself are only normally a standard glasspiece? Of cource ,the backlable could also be interresting if the sharpness is good enough to be read.

    Hi Pye,
    thanks for your uploads!
    You are right, having the images on the database and collections site too is a good idea. I hope to find the timet o implement this soon.
    Images of only the labels are fine, although I asume having the whole bottle on the picture would generally be better. If the backlabel adds valuable information you can add it too, of course.
    Thanks for your suppport!
