This has been bugging me for days, I just can't wrap my head around this situation/process and how to make it work in Drupal.
I'm making a photography competition website where a user who signs up and buys a role has the choice to upload 3(costs £4), 10(costs £6) or 20(costs £10) images but each image needs to be a part of a competition category, so say someone uploads 3 images, one is for black and white category (taxonomy term), one is for wide angle and one is for sport, each image needs to be tagged with the correct category, of which im using taxonomy terms. But how do i go about this?
Firstly limiting the user to said amount of photos? I was thinking they buy a role (there are 3 roles), role one allows to upload 3 images using the content type 3 images, role two allowed to upload 10 images on a node and the final content type is '20 images' and they can upload up to 20 images using that content type, each user though must be able to categorise each individual image using the taxonomy vocab already created called Photo Categories. How the hell do i tag each individual image so that they are categorised and ready for viewing/judging later on??
Should I do this on the user profile instead? So that when they buy their role, they can then upload the amount of photos that they are allowed to? This will still mean I have the problem of assigning each image to a taxonomy term.
Also, is purchasing a role the best way to go about this? Now that you know what I am after what are your thoughts? I know Drupal can do this 'out of the box', i'm just struggling to see what workflow the end user will go through to achieve all of this.
