Photos and slideshows
March 4, 2008
Product Catalogs and Portfolios are among the first pages to benefit from the new interface, with new and improved photo management features:
- Uploading photos is now much easier.
- Photos can be re-ordered by single drag and drop.
- Legends can be attached to photos.
- Photos can be displayed in a slideshow.
When editing a product or a project, there is now a "Photos" tab dedicated to the management of the associated photos:
Improved photo upload
A number of improvements in the upload department:
- Uploads now happens in the background and are faster than before.
- The thumbnails that are automatically created are of better quality than in the past.
- Both .GIF and .JPEG files can be uploaded.
You can attach a legend to a photo at the time you upload it, or modify it once the photo is uploaded:
Arrange your photos
The pictures used to be displayed in the order they were uploaded. This limitation is now lifted with a drag and drop interface that allows to re-arrange the photos very easily by dropping them to their new position:
Now that you have worked hard to upload, describe and arrange your photos, you can select to display them in a slideshow. Three slideshow sizes are available (400, 600 and 800 pixels). However, unless your application requires to show a lot of details, we do not recommend the larger slideshows: the photos take longer to download, and they do not fit on every screen size.
Here is a product page with a slideshow.
Existing content migrated
The existing product catalogs and portfolios have all been set to use the new interface and medium sized slideshows. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to change this default setting for your entire product catalog or portfolio (it will be faster than manually updating each product or project).
