When I upload photos to one of the forums, I sometimes import them to the database. There are several steps involved to do this, but when I upload one to the database, there does not seem to be an easy way to return to the forum page I was on. This makes submitting more than one photo to the database a chore.

Am I missing something here? Is there a magic button somewhere?

I use an easier way. When you enlarge your image from a thread, put your mouse over the red "import image to database" right click it and choose to open link in new tab or new window. When you are finished importing from that new tab, close it and then you can continue within the original thread.

In some browsers, you can click open a new window (or tab) without closing the old one by holding down "CTRL" while you left-click on the new link.

I always have several windows (or tabs) open when I'm searching the site for something, while answering a post. Or while adding details to a database entry.

I wish I could add multiple photos at the same time, via multiple-select, but usually each one would benefit from a different title, and some other data details might differ from photo to photo.
