Is there a way to use a nodereference field on each individual image in a node? The images are CCK imagefields.

  • do you want to reference only the imagefields of nodes from another node?

  • Just the images inside of a node. A gallery node, with cck imagefields, 'tagging' Users in the photo similar to Facebook.

I don't think so, no. A node reference as its name suggests references an entire node. I've not heard of a CCK type that references another CCK field, though I could find a reference to a module that did that for D5. If that's your requirement, my recommendation would be to use an image-as-node method.

  • But then you can't use something like Image FUpload, correct? For bulk uploading images into an album? Or can Image FUpload do that on its own?

  • @Kevin I don't know about Image FUpload, but I don't see anything on the project page suggesting it can't. I've used Imagefield Import before and it worked well, if not as snazzy as the Image FUpload flash doobry looks.

Looks like there was a d5 module for that: fieldreference. Here you'll find a discussion about a d6 port. Maybe you could use viewreference or noderefenrece in conbination with a view to solve your problem as stated in the discussion.
