Why You Should Put Your Prices On Your Site?

For most photography business owners, one of the most controversial decisions to make is whether to post pricing information on their websites.

Mosaic Page Update

We wanted to give you a quick heads up about an update being made to the mosaic pages! By popular request we have made a change to the page’s functionality so that you can now show the larger thumbnail in the foreground. This will only occur when the image is clicked on from the mosaic page. To enable this new display option on your site, just edit your existing mosaic page (or make a new one!) and select the option:

mosaic page option

This option causes the 840px image to popup in the foreground when the small thumbnail is clicked (without reloading the page).  From there, you can hit ESC to cancel, or arrow keys “<” and “>” to click forwards and backwards through all images.

The 840px popup image works the same as on the View File page, taking colour, opacity and size information from; Control Panel -> My Images -> Collection and File Defaults -> File and Collection Display Settings.

We recommend that this format is used for a portfolio page as no sales options are displayed. The mosaic pages have been a great success and we’re so pleased that you’re enjoying them, so remember to make the changes required if you would like the new updates on your website! 😀
