Some feedback for Hugo might be useful.
Does it throw up any issues in practice?

Hi Hugo,

Can you elaborate a bit about the impact of those two upgrades? From what I read I cannot think of what is actually changing.
(David, thanks for unlocking the thread)

MEANING OF Photo Preview upon selection
During upload you select the JPG-file and it now shows the picture right away, before you fill in the other fields.
It was the other way round: the picture was shown with the message "upload completed".
In my opinion a great improvement: you see what you upload and errors can be corrected. THANK YOU IT

MEANING OF Form Auto Fill when searching by Ship Name
For instance you search QUEEN ANASTASIA.
The moment you type QUEEN you get a list of all pictures in the database with the name starting with QUEEN and you can select now the correct one, no need anymore to type the full name.
In my opinion a great improvement: THANK YOU IT
.........

Thanks Pieter, for explaining things that tbh never caused me any problems.

Ad 1: Usually I click on a picture in my files when uploading, so I know what I am doing. I have never so far uploaded a different picture than intended.
Ad 2: First I prefer searching via IMO number but when it has to be I would like to type the full name, not having to read a great number of different queens as per your example, but I can imagine people will like it, especially those who do not know the IMO number of the Fliegerkosmonaut der DDR Siegmund Jahn or the numbers of several SCI tankers named after military heroes.

Dear Members,

A new feature on the Photo Upload form is now available:
- Multiple photo uploads, this allows you to upload up to 5 photos of the same boat at once.

Additionally, it is now possible to Log In using Google and Facebook from the Login page.

Does that apply to SHIPS as well as BOATS? And how does that fit in with site limit of four? I would like to see the limit reduced to two (quality, not quantity). Just my opinion.
