Add Pictures to places from WME
Allow a map editor user (level 4 or higher) to add images to places.
Sería muy útil
I disagree, regardless of level of the editor, the purpose of images is for users who are keenly going to these places adding a picture that is current and dated for that trip, not to copy and paste from google a picture from whenever. If Waze wanted that then 90% of business could just have pictures imported from the streetview functionality by mapping street to location marker with user input to correct the erroneous areas or non viewable areas via the app.

Es una necesidad que como editores podamos incorporar fotografías desde el WME como parte del proceso de edición y depuración de los lugares en el mapa.

Excelente idea, espero lo puedan hacer.

Me gusta la idea. He intentado actualizar dos lugares y no me carga la foto desde la app. Lo único es que no es necesario que sea nivel 4 o superior, como dice Mac Newbold, el usuario desde la app sube una foto y él es el responsable (sin importar el nivel) no es responsable el establecimiento. Las podríamos subir los mismos que estamos autorizando las fotos que envían desde la app.

Es una gran idea

R4 seems high to me - It shouldn't be that hard to remind R3's of the guidelines. In any case, whether submitted by a user or by an editor, it's still user submitted content, which generally in USA and probably other countries, means the user is responsible for it rather than the site, if it were found to be infringing.

This is somewhat tricky... On the other hand there can be possible copyright problems but on the other hand this would be needed.
Then again, I don't take pictures when driving since holding electronic devices during is forbidden by law in my country. That would often be the only way to take a good picture of the place before arriving to it because then you're often too close.
But I have a dashboard cam which records and I could take still shots from it's videos via PC if those were possible to add via WME.
Anyway, could we at least get some editing possibilities when accepting the photos people submit? Very, very often we have to reject those because images contain something that we cannot allow and simple blurring tool would be enough to make those perfectly alright. I actually made a suggestion "Ability to edit PUR photos to blur items" of it.
Me parece una gran propuesta, aunque yo la ampliaría a los editores de nivel 3, que ya tienen suficiente experiencia para utilizar la herramienta adecuadamente
I'd propose that the user level be country-configurable. It probably makes sense to not allow everyone the functionality, but there are plenty of R3 users who would be great at this.
Copyright infringement is just as easy from the camera -- can be taken of another screen.
Since Google and Yelp both allow uploading of place photos from the computer, it's a poor excuse.
Veo con mucha aceptación la propuesta. Y mas si se inicia probando con editores igual o superior a 4. Así no quedaría abierta para todo tipo de usuario.
That's why the proposal is to have only members level 4 and up do the upload.

Unfortunately this leaves things wide open for copywrite infringement.
Having photos only able to be uploaded via the app using the device camera prevents that.
