New Admin Image View

Admin Thumbnail View

Here's a small new feature that can make a big difference to how you manage your images in DPG. Your admin interface now has the option of a thumbnail view, which shows your photos in their original aspect ratio (unlike the icon view which is a square crop of the image).

The thumbnail view is ideal for getting an overview of your work. In sets with hundreds of photos it makes it much easier to find what you're looking for and it's perfect if you need to select lots of images. Don't forget the keyboard modifiers for enhanced selections, too.

Better still, you can choose the size of the thumbnails to suit your needs - make them smaller to fit more on the screen or bigger if you've got a large monitor to play with.

Check out the video below to see how it works and then give it a try in your account. You can set thumbnails as the default view for new sets and keywords in your account settings.

FTP users

If you regularly upload large sets of images or if you'd like to upload without having to log in, this feature is for you.

The new FTP users panel on the upload screen allows you to create an unlimited amount of virtual FTP users, each of which can be mapped to a set within DPG. Images can then be uploaded using your favourite FTP client, preserving metadata and set structure.

Every Digital Photo Gallery account has access to an ever growing library of HTML5-based website templates, all of which look amazing when viewed on anything from iPads through to huge desktop displays. The graphical admin interface means you don't need to know any code to design and update a site, but if you already have the skills, you have full control of the style sheets and custom jQuery libraries that each site is built with.

Watch the video to see just how easy it is to create a new website and see below for samples of a few of the templates that are available to all users right now.
