Unfortunately, that's not how it works. A lot of the photos Sue and I posted were multiple views of the same plant, so we got one acorn per plant. It still adds up to a whopping number of acorns, though. Big Grin

Zuzu's right. 3 blooms of the same plant only net you one acorn...

Wow! Those numbers are impressive.

Ya'll must really have your photo files organized to easily find them, upload them, then move on to the next. Heck, I'm impressed with Dave's 56 entries...probably done in one day, eh, Dave?

Maybe only four, Shoe, but as the moderator of half of those, I can attest to their high quality.

I have more than 8,000 photos of roses and they're all in alphabetical order in my photo library, so all I have to do is pick out the best for posting. No hassle whatsoever. I think Sue has about a million photos, though, and they're in separate folders, so she does have to jump through some hoops. Smiling

Wow! That's a lot of photos! and organized!

As I learned more and more about the computer, files, folders, naming and renaming it seems my photos are all over the place. On occasion I find them and move them to particular folders. I'm glad Dave hasn't created the database like I've done to my computer...haphazardly! Rolling my eyes.

As I keep finding good pic I'll add them. Good to see the numbers, Dave, it's encouraging.

I agree, great to see these numbers climbing!

LOL, I have a folder on my laptop named Lin's Pictures and inside that folder are bunches of folders, alphabetized, one for each plant. I try to stay organized and file each plant photo into the correct folder but sometimes they get all mixed up. I also have a folder named Lin's Birds. Big Grin
