Bug fixes & conveniences – June 20, 2008
By popular demand: The save photo icon is now visible when you are logged in even if you have originals turned off. No worries, your visitors won’t see it. To check that, you can log out — or click the visitor view button on your home page.
Sorry for the panic this caused for many people the first time they saw it!
More convenience: If you uploaded PNG, GIF, and JPEG files that were over 12 MB for standard and power users, over 24 MB for pros, or over 48 megapixels, we used to reject them. We’d write a Dear John note about them in your upload log, not exactly convenient or endearing.
Now we re-size them to sneak under our limits so we don’t send you scrambling for Photoshop.
Filenames are back! In the bulk photo tools, we had many requests to bring back filename display.
One bug prevented Filenames from being converted to Keywords on upload. Now you can upload files with dashes, spaces, etc… and the filenames are properly converted to Keywords.
Another made the Slideshow button disappear when you forced your gallery to be SmugMug Small.
Retired: The Drag & Drop uploader lacked the error detection and retry goodness of the other uploaders and, sadly, had to be retired. But you can still find it listed in fine print at the bottom of the uploader tabs. If it works for you, great.
PayPal: Did you know they introduced a plug-in that lets you use your PayPal as if it were Mastercard on sites like SmugMug? We acknowledged that on the site.
Pro FAQ: Version 2.0.
As always: Many enhancements to the help pages including vastly improved help search.
Oh, one more thing: Got RAW? (A separate release note is in the works for this.)
