    Yup, but I have no idea how to do that so it's up to @ryanfury

    But, if you just want to save to a JPG and upload it, that's fine too.

    We also have the ok to use ebay seller mydpins pictures :)

    Well thought I save the photos from the DSSH release today, but now cannot find them. Started to add, but no photos so stopped... If anyone has photos, please add.

    PTDB is approaching 35,000 pins. Wondering if the DPF team can help get it over 35,000 by September 30 by uploading some older pins?

    I'm curious, is pinpics not going to exist anymore? I'm just trying to kind of understand. Do a lot of users now use the ptdb rather than pinpics?

    Pinpics is an unknown and it is not being updated with any regularity. Will it exist? Will it be fixed? Will all the now missing pins get added? Who knows...? Its not within the control of pin traders anymore.

    More users are using PTDB all the time (you can see how many users there are in PTDB by going to the user tab), but no idea what the future holds and if PTDB could possibly catch Pinpics for all the pin history (that is a steep hill to climb, but if the pin trading community gets behind PTDB as a whole... maybe?) On the other hand, if Pinpics could get its act together, I do think Pinpics could recover a lot of what it has lost and once again PTDB might fall to the side.

    Hoping! It's hard enough keeping up with the newer pins!

    We especially like series of pins all put close together

    Kudos to @momin.ator and distrader (not DPF member) for uploading all of the new Hidden Disney pins yesterday. Not only are the pins now listed in PTDB, BUT it takes us only 133 pins away from 35,000 in the database! Five days left in the month. We are getting there!

    Woohoo! I think if the new pins from the shopping day are added, we might get closer :)

    I hope to start adding my pins on Monday and Tuesday. About 75% (well 75% of individual pins anyways) of my collection is not on dptdb, so it may take awhile. I will probably start with the mystery sets that I have completed, and work my way through my collection.

    Was able to upload 6 more older pins tonight for a total of 12 for the day.

    ... Bit by Bit. :)

    Mystery sets are good. A good way to keep them together, numerically, is to add the title for the first pin, add pin, then add similar pin and name it pin #2, etc.

    That's how I do it with certain pins, like the most recent HKDL game prize / hidden mickey pins. I find out how many there are, and add the number of listings, then go back and edit. Those who create the pin listing can go back and edit

    That makes sense. I was thinking about how to add the old ds mystery sets, I was thinking about le and starting with the largest # and working my way down (I would also add the pins (without pictures) I do not have to keep the sets complete and near each other).

    Do you (or anyone) have additional suggestions on adding pins to the database?

    That sounds fine to add the pins in the sets that you don't have pictures of, so they can be close together. I or someone else would start looking for the picture :)

    For the pins you do have, when you take pictures, take them against a plain white or black background, in natural light.
