Many of you may have noticed that our Image Gallery has some unusual naming conventions. With the introduction of our Magazine Database, we can provide a standard naming convention across the entire Gallery. Basically, when we enter the number of the Image into a Magazine record.....I can then export all that data and use it to mass rename the Gallery images. Last time I checked, 2302 out of 3633 Magazine Covers for the USA section had been attached. So a little over 63% of the USA Gallery section has been attached, and then I could use that information to fix up all those weird names like.....

PC Gamer Issue 178 September 2008

Not only will I be able to mass rename tons of covers in our Gallery, but I will also be able to provide mass links back to the Magazine Database from the Gallery. So when you are viewing a magazine cover in the Gallery, there will be a link to the corresponding magazine record to click on.
