Introducing Collections and a whole lot more!
This turned out to be one big release with major new functionality and
enhancements addressing user feedback.
Put Together your Favorite Collections
Collections can be used to save links to photos from you and other
Zenfolio users. You can now reference the same
photo in several Collections without having to upload the photo many
times. Collections are also great for saving together photos from
several Zenfolio users taken at the same event or location. Or for
collecting in one place your favorite photos on a specific subject.
There are many ways to use Collections so be creative!
As opposed to Galleries, Collections hold only links to the photos
but not the actual files. And if you wish, you can specify to not
allow your photographs to be added to Collections by others.
Free Subscriptions for Registered Visitors
Registered Visitors can save photographs from other Zenfolio users
in Collections, and show them on their own Home page with a custom
address. Registration takes less than a minute and subscription is
Ability to Setup Custom Domain Name
This was a highly requested feature that we are certain will make your
galleries look even more custom. If you have your own domain
name registered you can now setup the CNAME record for it to point
to your Zenfolio account. It will become the address to your Home
page and all the links to your photo pages and galleries will begin
with it. If you are an Unlimited plan subscriber, check Preferences
for more details.
By popular demand we are bringing out larger 120px thumbnails in
addition to the existing ones. The new thumbnails have more than
double the size of the original thumbnails. By default, smaller
thumbnails are displayed for lower screen resolutions, and larger
thumbnails are displayed for higher screen resolutions achieving
the best presentation experience across all screen resolutions. Users can
override this default in either direction on a per gallery basis.
Current Themes and Layouts Updated
Complete overhaul of current page layouts resulted in more functional
pages and more customization options. All current themes received
visual enhancements and improvements.
Other new features include:
- Two new themes: Subtle and Playground
- Customizable e-mail invitations visually matching gallery and collection theme
- Sending referral invitations is now easier using automated message system
- Photographer Copyright field is now editable per photograph so you can give proper credit
