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.
