Topic title: Aberrant links between thumbnails and photos in albums


Topic description:

We have a complicated issue with photo thumbnails not matching up with their expected image, both from Recent Photos and individual album landing pages. This has been occuring from time to time over the last few months. It seems to occur when photos are uploaded via My Photos, rather than from the Category pages. 



There is a separate, but presumably linked, issue where thumbnails disappear when photos are moved, or duplicates are deleted, but in this instance the thumbnail icon does link to the image behind it.



These problems been reported to PCS but so far, have not been investigated by them.



If you have photos which have been affected by these faults, please do NOT delete them. PCS need to be able to see the problem for themselves.

No, it's not - this only half of the post I attempted to upload from my phone. The post should continue to say: "It wasn't the last time I tried."

This issue is to be referred back to PCS, ASAP.

A second coat is likely to look a lot smoother than the first, as well. Good luck!

I've no experience of using anything other than brushes for painting DH walls. I couldn't find a roller smaller than 5cm/2 inch on a quick online search, which I think would be too big for DH work. There are other painting tools available which might help you to get the finish you want, such as sponge painting sticks or the window tool from a set of paint pads (I could only find them in sets on my searches). 

I use good quality artists' brushes in a range of sizes - the largest I have is 1/2 inch/12 mm across. Dolls' house walls are so small, it doesn't take that long to cover them with such a small brush.

The other thing that occurs to me is that you might be being too critical of your efforts - a few brush marks could add to the charm of a dolls' house and Triang's original finish would have been far from flawless!
