We made Proof Delay a heck of a lot smarter.
In the old days, your clients would sometimes order prints cropped a certain way, and when you replaced it with an edited photo of a different shape it wouldn’t always work out so well. Heroes to the rescue and everything, but, yanno.
And if you replaced the image with something that was shaped the same, there wasn’t a way to remember exactly how they’d had it cropped in the first place.
We’ve fixed all that.
How it works.
Pros, the very next time you get a cropped order held for Proof Delay, don’t fret. We’ll now do the following:
1) Show you the exact same crop your client used if you replace the photo with an edited version of the same shape and size.
2) Show you a thumbnail of the original image with the crop when you replace the photo with one that’s a different shape and size.
3) Display the thumbnail with the original image and crop when you go in and try to adjust the crop on a replaced image of a different size.
We hope this makes your life a whole lot easier and that your customers don’t notice a thing. Except, of course, how much they love their prints and what a great photographer you are.
