Can you add more countries to the list of uploaded photos? I just returned from Kenya and Uganda and those countries aren't listed there.

I would like to see Iceland, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Ethiopia and Montenegro.
OK, I will add these countries in today and tomorrow.
Kenya and Uganda have been added.
Iceland, Kyrgyzstan and Ethiopia have been added. I'm not sure about Montenegro. Is that a country? Or is it part of Yugoslavia? Or should it be called "Serbia & Montenegro"?
Uzbekistan has been added.

> I'm not sure about Montenegro. Is that a country? Or is it part of Yugoslavia? Or should it be called "Serbia & Montenegro"<
Officially it should be Yugoslavia which consists of Serbia and Montenegro. However everyone expects Montenegro to declare independant in the (very) near future. Montenegro already functions as an independant country anyway (different currency, different visa regulations, own governement etc.)
I wouldn't make sense to ad "Yugoslavia" as a country. I expect it not to exist anymore in a year from now.
Do you happen to know the provinces or districts of Montenegro, or where I might find this information? Once I can find out this I will be able to add it in. I have looked everywhere online and no luck so far.

you add all those provinces which I can't match them to what I know
i.e. Estonia, in which province is Tallinn? I looked in my LP and couldn't find it.
also about Israel at least here I know there are no provinces, you might say north, south, or Negev Desert, Galilee and etc... but i.e. isn't in any province
it's too small country to divide it to counties.
Tallinn is in Harjumaa.
Israel has districts and sub-districts so I put Israel districts under 'Regions', and sub-districts under 'States'.

I have no idea about provinces in Montenegro. And frankly i still wont have any idea about the provinces when i will submit pictures so i probably choose one randomly. (btw, i did the same with the Iceland and ethiopia pictures)
No one really cares about provinces or districts in Europe (except maybe in Spain). Most countries are smaller then the average american state anyway.

Right, makes sense. I do realize this way is harder. I have this structure so that in the future if there will be many, many photos, it will be easier to browse based on a particular area of a country. For example, if I plan on going to the south of France I can go to the photos from Provence immediately. I think it will eventually become very useful. Right now it's no big deal because there are so few photos.
I also think it will will help photographers organize their photos in a more systematic way.

hence I suggest to add a map with the provinces, since as I said don't know where to find them and I gave the example about Israel, about Israel I would do North, Center and South

Rather than having people put in random provinces perhaps it would be better to have an option of "Unknown" or something like that.
Yes, the more I think about it, the more I suppose there should be an 'Unknown' State option. This will be a pretty big change on the backend though. Also, if 'Unknown' is chosen for 'State', 'City' will not be able to be chosen also.

since Palestine isn't a country yet and I saw you have Sumeria and Jehuda as a province in Israel, you should add also Gaza strip, I posted 2 photos under the Sumeria and Jehuda province since I didn't find Gaza.
I will add Palestine in tonight and will also move Judea and Samaria to Palestine.

just wonder, where do u find all the provinces in every place?
I'll try to see whether those provinces in Palestine are correct.
btw Palestine is a bit tricky, how would you define the setlments in Palestine, Palestine or Israel? I mean there aren't yet defined or agreed border between Israel and Palestine, i.e. the photo from the western wall I put here before, the Palestinians will claim Jerusalem is Palestinians land, but the Israelis will say no way.
"just wonder, where do u find all the provinces in every place?"
I usually use the provinces listed in the current CIA World Factbook and check them against a 2nd or even 3rd source for accuracy and to determine in which region they reside.
"how would you define the setlments in Palestine, Palestine or Israel?"
Since I only input up to the province/state level, this can be flexible to a certain extent.

OK, I'll add Ireland in tonight.
Ireland and Cuba have been added.

If i can just add a comment. Under the Slovenia country "EAST" you should add "Savinjska" region.
OK, I have added "Savinjska" to the East region of Slovenia, thanks.

in fact all three pictures i add today are from "savinjska" region. But anyway it'll do for further :)
"in fact all three pictures i add today are from "savinjska" region."
To change any information about your photos, such as region location etc, you may go to 'My Account', click on the 'Manage' tab, and then click 'Edit' next to the photo in which you would like to change the information.
