Doteasy Hosted Gallery – New Features

November 28th, 2008

We have added several features to the Doteasy Hosted Gallery in the past couple months. In case you are not aware of the new features:

1. Share Album

When you enable the “Share this Album” function, an email form will be displayed on your gallery page.

The email form allows your visitors to share your album with their friends and family by sending an email to them with a permalink to your album.

Note, if you enable this feature for a PRIVATE album, the recipient of the email may not have the permissions to view the album.

2. Sort Album

Just like the Photo Sorting function, you can now rearrange the albums in your gallery. The Album Sorting function also uses the same drag and drop logic.

3. Photo Commenting

Your visitors can now comment on your photos.

The Photo Comment function is flexible, allowing you to enable comments from all visitors or just friends in your Address Book. By enabling comments, you can also choose whether you want to be notified via email whenever a comment has been posted.

You will find all these settings in your Photo Gallery admin area. The Photo Commenting and “Share this Album” functions are under the “Customize Album Setting” tab and the Album Sorting function is on the “Manage Albums” page.

We have recently added a new photo sorting feature on the Doteasy Hosted Gallery – you can now rearrange photos in your albums. This feature comes in handy when you’re trying to document your trip or vacation using photos or any occasion that calls for arranging your photos in a special/custom order.

Steps:

1. Click on Manage Album to access the album you need to arrange.

Manage Album

2. Click on the Manage Photos tab.

Manage Photos

3. Click on the Sort Photos in this Album link.

Sort Photos

4. Begin rearranging your photos by drag-and-drop. Simply drag the photo and drop it to where you want it to be.

5. Once you have rearranged your photos, you can use the View Photos by drop-down menu to select the Custom option. This option will display all your photos according to the order you have just defined.

Notes:

  1. The drag and drop sorting is per page
  2. Sorting order is saved as soon as you drop the photo to another location.
  3. If you want to move a photo to another page, you will need to click on the photo and then click on the Move Selected Photo link.

4. This new photo order will become the Default display order of photos on your public album.
