It’s spring time… the perfect time to launch some major site changes! This week I Blogified my news, installing WordPress on the back end, and migrating all of my news over to this format for better reading, managing, and archiving. I also plan on using it for more of a blogging platform, so I can post articles, tutorials, and other useful information that’s not site specific.
I also completely overhauled my printing back-end. I’m still using Fotomoto to handle my shopping cart, printing, and shipping for photos on this site, but am now using their handy API’s for managing images. This is transparent to all of you, but allows for much more control for me. I also have greeting card and postcard options available right from the image page, rather than having to dig through options. Try it out here:
Blue Angels in Tight Formation
Buy Print or Canvas | Buy Card
Lastly, I’ve uploaded a handful of new images to my FineArtAmerica managed site, some examples below:
Lotus Flower and Lily Pad
Campfire and Moonlight
NEMO Science Center
Palm leaf macro abstract
Added a cool new feature to my photo pages! You can now see in the sidebar a bunch of related images, based on the current image tags.
Check it out by clicking one of these:
I have a few updates to announce, nothing major but cool nonetheless. I’ve updated my RSS feeds to be PicLens compatible. What is PicLens, you might ask? It’s a cool new browser plug-in that allows for full-screen 3d browsing of photos, videos, and other multimedia found online. It’s great for instant media slideshows. Check it out, and start viewing my images in extra sleek style!
Also, I’ve added a new RSS feed that includes all of my latest photos. While this isn’t updated daily, like the POTD feed, you can be sure to never miss my newest content.
Well, after about a week, countless lines of code, and a case of Mt. Dew, my new and improved site is open for your viewing pleasure! I try to keep things fresh, and this time around I changed the color scheme and did a lot of back-end re-coding to make the site look better and run smoother. Please feel free to send me a note if you have any comments or suggestions. Enjoy!
