Is it possible they were using several computers at the same time? I know I have my laptop, my son's laptop, and could also be working from my desktop at the same time which would be 15.... Awful lot of computers to make it 40 though :)
If you don't keyword the images, and put in dummy titles, I'll bet you could do it. Particularly if the images are small. The original post "40 images all at the same time, one minute apart" is unclear. Would these be over a span of 40 minutes, each taking 1 minute. That would be a cinch. 40 images in 1 minute? I might be able to do it if they are not very big.
Gnomes! It was the gnomes! I saw them do it. They went that-a-away!
On a more serious note, just out of curiosity, what type of artwork was it? Photography? Digital Art? Was it all small images used in a plot by the gnomes to bring down that greeting card giant Hallmark?
They are on the activity page when I signed in. This is a link to the last one. I counted them, I know there is software to do this on ebay or you pay for a service or something, I have not listed on there for about 5 years or more.
I checked one, there is no description and it looks like their tag words could be the same for all the prints. I used the multi loader a time or two, it did not seem much quicker.I probably was not doing it right. The time added incremented one minute per image. Looks like there could have been a slight break. I am just not that fast but certainly without any descriptions it would go quicker.
It's a gallery that's been on FAA for over a year and have over 500 images. The images I saw on their profile are all high res so I doubt they uploaded in less than a minute. They look nice but for some reason they aren't getting very many views, it would seem that the bots haven't found them yet.
The first time I saw them it said so and so added new art work and kept filling the page except one other post in between. It shoed added in one minute incements for at least 10 or so... so I scrolled back and counted and there were 40 new additions with only one other 'new activity'. Darn, I was hoping there was a way to do a bunch of listings at once and fine tune the specifics. And I did not see any descriptions. It is a legit place here in Micigan, I have them on my watch list.
