Show of hands... How many are getting really frustrated uploading whole teams' worth of photos one at a time with the long screen reloads in between photos?
My hand is up, but I found a little cheat to speed things up and thought I would share.
When you are uploading a bunch of photos on a team, one after the other it can get tedious. Click to open dialog box, click and find picture, click upload, crop, then you hit the close button like we have all been taught to always do. Then comes the screen redraw that can take 2-10 seconds depending on time of day, internet connection, etc. Frustrating!
Try this next time. After cropping DO NOT click the close button. Instead click the red WINDOW close icon in the upper corner of the dialog box (upper right on Windows or upper left on Mac). This will close the window and not trigger a refresh of the main window, but your photo is still saved. Then move on to the next player/coach.
The downside to this method is that you don't get the screen updated, so you have to pay attention to which photos you have uploaded. If you need to see progress, then just click the close button in the next upload or reload the team!
Hope this helps!
