How-do-mission-photos-work

From VPOIDS Documentation

Mission photos is an outdated term, since we want to support both mission photos and photos from events and for other reasons.

The difference between a mission photo and other photos is that a mission photo is explicitly tied to a mission, and it gets information from the mission when it's displayed in the gallery.

Where are photos stored?

Three versions of the photo are stored:

  • The original photo, which is stored in the /web/uploads/mission_photos directory
  • A thumbnail version, which is stored in the /web/uploads/mission_photos/thumbnails directory
  • A display version, which is stored in the /web/uploads/mission_photos/display directory
