Vol. III: December 10th, 2008.
Hello everyone, here is an update on what's been going on at UPhoto in
the last little while.
1. Last Days to Order Cards from the UPhoto Store
Time is running out to get those holiday cards out to friends and
family... Check out the holiday selection
in the UPhoto Store. We
can help you customize text (such as 'Happy Holidays' or 'Season's
Greetings' for your card as well. Just give Corey a call at
607-255-1877 or email him at cjc85.
2. New UPhoto Services - Image Hosting & Electronic Delivery
a. Image Hosting - Does your department or unit have an image
collection that you would like to be able to access online? UPhoto now
has the ability to set up private, password-protected user accounts on
our Image Portal
system where you can have access to both the images you use/order from
UPhoto, as well as your departmental image collections. For details,
contact Corey at 607-255-1877 or cjc85.
b. Electronic Delivery - Would you rather access the images you order
from UPhoto online via download than receive them on a CD? We now have
the ability to deliver orders (including hi-res images) electronically
via our Image Portal
system. Have access to all your UPhoto orders 24/7, and simply
re-download them if they become lost or modified. For details, contact
Corey at 607-255-1877 or cjc85.
3. Image Library Category Tree
I have received a number of requests for a diagram outlining the
category structure for the Image Library. The
complete category tree can now be viewed online and downloaded on the category
tree page of our site. It can also be downloaded as a PDF
from the same location.
4. Number of Lightboxes Increased
We have increased the total number of lightboxes a user can have on the
Image Library to
45. If any of you have had trouble creating new lightboxes because you
had more than 10, this should now be remedied.
5. Zoom & Caption Now Available in Lightboxes
Lightboxes in Image
Library now have caption information displayed under them, and the
image zoom function is now enabled for the lightbox as well. You will
now have the same functions available in the lightboxes as you have
when browsing and searching images.
6. Change for Adding Items to the Lightbox
Before, when selecting items and adding them to a lightbox, the site
would take you to the lightbox page after making your selection, from
which you would have to use your browser's back button to return to
your search or browse results. We have now changed that function so
that when adding items to the lightbox, you receive a popup
notification that the items you selected have been added to the
lightbox. You can simply close the popup and remain on your search
results page without having to go back. This should make your use of
the site much more efficient.
7. The Year in Photos
Watch for many of Jason's, Lindsay's and Robert's shots in the
photographic year-in-review to be printed in this Friday's edition of
the Cornell Chronicle, and posted on Chronicle
Online before the holidays.
As always, suggestions and feedback are always welcome.
