Oven blows up and no photos.

My wife was making potato wedges last night when in the middle of cooking the bottom burner catches fire and starts to sparkle like a party sparkler. I run for my camera and when I get back to the kitchen its over my wife turned off the stove and when I turned the stove back on nothing happens. Now that the fun part is over does anyone want me to do an Instructable on how to repair an oven element? The white marks are from the electrical fire.

Captions for photos in photo-ibles

I can't see any way to add captions to individual pictures in Photo-ibles. Have I missed the obvious, or is it obviously missing ?

Change a project's primary photo?

About the last step before publishing a project is to pick the main photo you want used with the project.  Is there a way to change that photo later?

Digital photo frame

I want to make a digital photo frame with the ability to dictate the length of time each photo is shown and the ability to type words describing the photo that can be triggered by use of a touchscreen.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Site suggestion

It would be really helpful if there was an option when you upload a photo to have it as the picture for the form topic and not for the photo under the message, and an option to have the photo for the photo under the message and not the form topic photo.

Can't Change My Photo

I'm trying to update my photo in my profile.  I've uploaded a new photo 5 times using Firefox on my PC running Windows Vista but have been unable to figure out any way to replace my existing photo with the uploaded photo.  (I've selected the "remove" option for my current photo 3 times and it has never been removed.)  (Also, there appear to be no prompts to select the newly uploaded photo as my profile picture.)

Problem with adding photos

This is concerning the box "Click to ad Images". ONce images are added you can not add more until all the current photos are used or deleted. Makes it a hassle to add photos. I must use up all the previously added photos, Then I can add more. I have to go back and remove extra photos that I did not want to use but had to so I could add additional photos.

Unable to add description boxes to photos that are not the first photo in an instructable step

When creating a new step-by-step instructable, I am unable to add descriptiong to any photos except the first one in a step. To remedy this I kept switching which photo was first, added my comments, and restored the photos to the correct order. This took a really long time and was very inconvenient, but it got the job done!

How do i allow others to see my photo library?

I have uploaded some photos to my photo library and i want them to be viewed by other members.  But there is no tab on my profile page for others to click on my photo library.  I do not have an instructable.  I just wanted to show the original poster of the project to see my project.  Is there a way to add a tab to my profile page with the link to my photo library?

Photos "by reference" ?

Is there a way to put a photo in a forum topic (or instructable, but mostly for forums) by including only a link to the location of that photo elsewhere on the net (this is how videos work)? When posting "look at this neat instructable-like things I found elsewhere" type entries, it's a pain to have to download the photo and re-upload it to instructables, not to mention the vaguely uncomfortable feeling I get WRT intellectual property issues...

Posting photos of our inspiration

If we make something that was inspired by (for example) a costume in a movie, are we allowed to post a photo of our inspiration piece? I know that it says that images in our instructables must be our own, but I can't exactly take this photo myself. Should I just mention the piece I was re-creating, and let people search for a photo themselves if they would like to see it?

Homepage photos

What's happened to the giant authors photos that used to appear on the homepage? Last time I saw them was a couple of days ago. What I see now is a big gray rectangle with a smaller contest banner in it (it changes everytime I refresh the page). Is this normal? If this is the way it should be, I apologize for posting this in the "Bugs" section! ps: I preferred the homepage with the moving photos! :)

Main photo being cropped on 'explore' pages.

  The main photo of an Instructable is being cropped by a few percent at the edges on the 'explore' pages.  The images are fine when the Instructable is clicked to view it, but for myself and others who take photos to fill the whole frame it is annoying to have the edges of the 'content' chopped off.  (I always intend to take a more loosely framed photo as the title image but never seem to remember.) Is this a bug in the image handling or is it done by intent? Edit : I've just realised what's happening - It's cropping to make a square aspect ratio for the thumbnails. Looks like I'll have to compose the photo accordingly.
