(PRLEAP.COM) For those craving photos of Asheville and its surrounding areas, look no further. The largest Asheville information web-site has introduced the Photo Gallery, a unique part of its already robust offerings, in order to better serve the community through photography. There are many things that make the Asheville Photo Gallery unique, allowing users to better access existing photos as well as add their own.
Browsing the current offerings in the Photo Gallery is easy. Simply go to the Photo Gallery homepage, and either use the keyword search feature atop each page, or simply browse through the existing user-submitted photos. Selecting an individual photo will bring up the Photo Gallery Slideshow, a browsing tool to select amongst existing pictures.
Anyone can post their own pictures of Asheville. To post a photo, go to the Asheville Photo Gallery and click the "upload photo" button, in the upper-right corner of any page (users are required to have a free account. To create one, sign up here), which loads the submission page. Simply upload a photograph, add a title and description, and tag the picture. It will be instantly available for viewing by the world!
In addition to submitting photos, users can also comment on existing photos, create new tags, rate each photo, e-mail the picture to friends, and even report photos as offensive. To comment, simply select an existing image from the Gallery, and click the "Post a Comment" button toward the bottom of the individual photo’s page. To rate an individual photo, simply hover over the star rating of choice, and select the appropriate rating for that picture.
Given the ability to submit photos, tag existing pictures, e-mail them to friends and family, bookmark user favorites, comment, and report offensive pictures, the Asheville NC Photo Gallery is sure to be the one-stop destination for Asheville photography enthusiasts, as well as those simply wishing to get a glimpse of the area’s many flavors of life.
The Photo Gallery is only one of many sections on ashevilleNC.com: Users will also find Asheville real estate, Asheville weddings, as well as weather for Asheville and more.
