    • Hi Brady,
      I just wanted to thank you for this sample application, I must say its very well written, I got couple of my doubts clarified by looking at the code, I am using it as reference for one of my projects..
      Do you happen to know how can I use SQL Azure as my data storage for user data (like album name, likes on the photo, comments on the photo etc) and use blob &/ table storage for storing images uploaded? and have a reference to my blob entry stored in my db so that i can pull it quickly..
      or do you think its a bad idea?
    • You need to use  blob &/ table storage api in code, Storage will give key you need to set in your code.
  • Can't run locally

    • I'm getting a null reference exception on call to this ctor...
      public PhotoAlbumDataContext(Microsoft.WindowsAzure.CloudStorageAccount account)
                  : base(account.TableEndpoint.ToString(), account.Credentials)
      which is called from this ctor...
             public PhotoAlbumDataContext()
                  : this(CloudStorageAccount.FromConfigurationSetting("DataConnectionString"))
      The expression: CloudStorageAccount.FromConfigurationSetting("DataConnectionString")) seems to be returning null. 
      Anyone have a clue?
    • Figured it out. Modified the connection string in the web.config...
          <add name="DataConnectionString" connectionString="UseDevelopmentStorage=true" />
       <!--   <add name="DataConnectionString" connectionString="DefaultEndpointsProtocol=https;AccountName={YOUR-ACCOUNT};AccountKey={YOUR-ACCOUNT-KEY}" /> -->
          <add name="DefaultConnection"
               connectionString="Server=.\SQLEXPRESS; Initial Catalog=PhluffyPhotos; Integrated Security=SSPI;" />
    • This you need to install SQLEXPRESS, and create DB PhluffyPhotos.
  • Can't open in VS2013?

  • Any uploaded picture shows up as a Generic "Processing Picture"

    • Hello there,
         Thanks for providing this sample. I am using this as a reference and also for learning. 
        I downloaded the source and was trying to run this in my local machine. After few hiccups, I was able to get it running. User registration, sign-in and album creation works great.
      The problem - After I uploaded a picture to a Album, the picture doesn't show up in the album. Rather a generic picture shows up which says "Processing Picture, please try again in a few seconds". Can you kindly let me know what might be the problem here?
