fleajr_1412 had an idea to create a picture library of all the users' basses.

The basic idea is that you guys send pictures of your basses (as many as you want, but within reason), as this would act as reference material for people unfamiliar with the world of bass guitar (and would serve as a giant load of bass porn ).

If you would like to send in some pictures of your bass, and hopefully some information about it, then please send an email to: ugbassforumphotolibrary@hotmail.co.uk Please be sure to include your username on UG and a link to your profile.

To view the photobucket album so far click below:
UG Bass forum picture library

Thanks for reading and please send us some pics/information!

I'll sticky this thread for a time to get the concept rolling. For future reference--there's a link in the first few posts of the Bass forum plan thread.

Will do. I'll take better pictures and send 'em in tomorrow or Sunday.

Or can we send in pics of amps etc?

Yep basses only first, We will see how it works and then maybe start up one about amps. People can show off their mighty stacks to lowly combo's. But theirs more basses and its nicer to look at them.

I edited the first post to include the new info and also posted it in the forum thread.

Are you going to restrict the size of the pictures btw? I know at one time hotmail did have email attachment limits on size, but its been so long since I had an account that I'm not sure if that still holds true.
#13
Wow, I had no idea that the thread was even up.

If there is a limit on the picture size then of course we'll have to keep the it under the limit. I'm not sure if there is though, if there isn't then you could probably send whatever size photo you want (within reason). TagRingo, a before and after picure would be great.

Oe more thing, could all the people who are helping out with this (and anyone else who would like to) place a link in their sig to advertise it a bit please?

Edit: Guys/Gals, please please please remember to add your username to the email, it makes it so much easier for us and for other people to contact you about an queries to do with your bass.

Editedit: Come on guys! Where are those pics?

To everyone who is helping to run the picture database.

I have made a folder in the hotmail account called 'uploaded pictures'
after you have uploaded the attatched pictures to photobook could you please move the email into this folder?

this would make it easier to keep on top of things

thanks,

Why dont the "organisers" make a group so they can discuss the running there, and post updates here so we can use this thread as sort of a Q&A?

There's a few pictures submitted.

You see on the left of the screen? That's all the different folders. Click one of them and choose the type of bass you'd like to see. There's only pictures for Ibanez, Spector, Fender (Jazz) and Peavey at the moment though.

I'll start working on it now, I don't really have much to do today

EDIT: I'm done, only took me 25 minutes. I accidentally forgot to submit photos with the Flashback and F1 basses, so I put their photos in with the Stingray email. Sorry!

No not really, but its not that difficult. Click, then click and maybe one more click might be required.

I actually agree with ScottB. At least, I don't think it should be so specific. When you open up Fender-->Jazz it should be all Fender Jazzes, not a separate folder for each individual bass. That's just one man's opinion though.

Yeah I realise its not hard to find something if you're looking for someting specific. It's just that there's a lot of empty folders I just wandered if there was a way I could see everything at once.

But really, great job for getting it all up so fast
If I'm honest I wasn't really sure that you were all going to follow through with it at first

Is it like that i havent checked, But lets say warwick, is it ok to have all the corvettes, thumbs, fortress's etc split into different folders, or would you all like Just warwicks.

I think it should be all Warwicks, but that said, so many people own Fenders that it would be useful to have subfolders for Jazz and Precision etc. I don't know if it's possible to have it on a brand by brand basis, but that would be ideal in my opinion.

My own opinion is that it would be best to just have the different makes, but only if you can see a caption of each picture without clicking on it.

If you can't, it may be better for it to be e.g.
Home>Fender>Precision
Jazz
Other

While this would work well for common makes (i.e. Fender, Ibanez, Squier etc), less common makes (Ernie Ball, Warwick, Lakland) may work better if it just went:
Home>Ernie Ball>*All Pics*

Just my thoughts

Well its easier if your thinking about buying a spefic bass or looking at one, instead of traling through all the pics or evreytype of warwick lets say, you can just go into the thumb section. Now with fender im getting rid of the sub jazz folders as we speak and all jazz;s are in jazz now. Is that good. I will try and make a slide show as well for the front page as well maybe.

Yeah but the thing is, how many people own Thumbs(not the things on your hands on) this forum?

I only know of one.

If someone is trying to find a bass they only know by looks, wouldnt it be so much easier to look through them all rather than clicking on every single folder? It's not like there wont be information on the model when they click the picture.
