I dont know if its just me, but ive set up a Realm for my Campaign and stumbled upon the case that I add the excatly same Picture to many Articles.

Its just my way of work. I prefer to have Ressource, I know Ill need in game at this time, to be at Hand instead behind a link especially as long as floating Windows not supported in RW.

It seems to me that RW is not able to regognize it is the same picture that I load. So I guess this same data takes much more space on Disk and Memory then it should be.

If there would be a Resource Gallery or something like this and I would be able to choose an Image (or any other external Ressource) from this internal Gallery instead to load it from disk. This will shrink my Realm much in datasize.

I hope its clear what I propose!?
What do you think?

I asked about this too, when I started with RW. As Pictures and Maps seem to be unique objects and not part of the topic itself, I would think one should be able to either include a picture or map in several topics with only having it stored once or at least to link directly to a pic or map.

If it was to do some intelligent comparisons so that it knows it is the same picture without me having to tell it that it is the same picture, then that would be even better.

Another option would be that you select PART of an image, so the overall image might be a crowd shot, and then for each individual character record you would choose only the part of the image containing that character.

I don't tend to reuse images but I see no reason not to have a feature for linking images from a single common repository rather than using the full image every time.

This should be a relatively simple extension of the existing additional images source topic/article.

+1 - though I can see a lot of challenges implementing this :-)

If there would be a way that makes realm works store all images in a "lookup table" all the other topics snippets would just point to the correct reference. You would need to display counter though to show in how many topics (and which?) topics the image is used. Functionality required to deal with dead links and other screwups so RW won't crash ...
