Will you look at that? There is a new tab. Too bad it doesn't lead anywhere.

This is awesome, besides the hiccup it looks really nice,....I've been hoping for something like this for awhile....

Also I just noticed i"m on the second page of this topic, which is weird because I usually get news late :P

Also YAY on the Spot is on in 2 hours :D

Much like the video uploads, please don't upload any screenshots that have watermarks, this includes GameSpot in-game screenshots that include a watermark.  You may want to try using a program or some games have this built in to take screenshots. Your images will be much more unique because you took them yourself. :)  Thanks!

Uh, I can't create an album. It's giving me an "object expected" error whenever I try to do it. How long do we have to wait until our user-submitted images show up?

I wasn't actually serious about doing it. I know a lot of people have been doing that with user videos though.

Thank you! I've been wanting this option for a very long time. I think it was one of the few advantages sites like 1UP had over this one. Will there be an area of the main site for user images (analagous to the user video space)?

Thank you Gamespot! Finally I have have this site host my images that go here anyways! I love the new feature! The only thing that I have to get used to is not clicking it thinking that it is the Tag button. (I did it by accident a few times already). This is such a great and useful tool. I already uploaded some random pics of mine. Hopefully there will be some sort of emblem that ties itself to how much content is uploaded.... ? Anyways, great job Gamespot, I love the new feature.

Nice new feature. Gamespot is turning into youtube and imageshack :)

The only thing I'm seeing that's missing: You can't recommend photos,just comment on them. You can recommend videos by giving it a thumbs up,or thumbs down if you don't recommend it. I think the same should go for images.

Is there a size limit to upload. I am a renderer, who cuts images from pics for sigs and stuff, and they tend to take up quite a bit of space? I'm hoping there will be room. Also, any restrictions to what kind of pics are uploadable, like can I upload .png images?

There is no bandwidth limit. Album problem should be fixed, refresh the page (ctrl-f5)

No.

Try "Share". The BBCode link will work in your blog or the forums. You dont see a link that says "Blog it" do you?

I uploaded a game-related image, I tried to click on the "Game Universe" button but it just stayed on "Just This Game"

 

also, will there ever be an emblem like the video one?

I like it. It's like a game-oriented Flickr., only better because it's here at GS. :P

 Plus, being able to add images to a specific game or game series makes the hole feature as web. 2.0 as it gets!

Gamespot gets better by the minute!!!

Sorry for being blind before :| I see it now. IS it ok to upload things like Zelda sigs for use in a Union? and IMO I dont see a need for an Emblem for this, it would be cool to have, but may lead to all kinds of bad things like some Emblems do :| But I could be wrong Very great Idea Indded :);):D

If they do make it available for unions, then they need to reorganize the tabs. I say that they should make a special tab under the admin section called "Upload" and you can upload images and videos there. That would make it look a lot nicer, IMO, than having tabs for Videos and Images.

Thats odd, because it happened to me too. The images didn't even upload. Well, whatever it is, I hope you get it fixed. New things like this areexpected to have little "hiccups," like you said.
