Our developers have been working hard on updating and improving the scrolling folio page. There are some big changes that have been implemented which will make the page more beautiful for your site visitor on desktop and mobile devices. It’s great for all portfolios especially fine art because of it’s natural panoramic aspect ratio. Of course the page still contains a text editor both above and below the images.You can now:
- Optionally show images in a randomised order. This means that your clients get to see new images every time the page loads.
- No restriction on number of images.
- You can vary padding between images.
- Make images auto-advance creating a smooth scrolling slideshow. A visitor can now watch the slideshow without intervention. However still have control by using the left and right arrows to advance/return an image or alternatively use the scroll bar below the folio to scroll through all the images very quickly.
- You have the option to display the slideshow arrows.
- Images can be clicked to go through to purchase options.

By default we keep the mobile friendly mode as lean and fast as possible and as a result of that the Google friendly search results have been fantastic. This was following on from the huge changes in mobile friendly search results that Google announced last year.
Things have changed slightly and we have now introduced a new “Mobile Header Image” so your logo can be shown atop the mobile view.
It is completely optional and we display your site title at the top anyway but if you want to include it, go to My Websites > Customise Design > Site Header, scroll to “Mobile Header Image”, and upload a png or jpg file. it will be resized to fit the mobile browser, select the alignment you want from the options and Save All. Easy!

Hello everyone and happy Friday! We recently announced that we are now providing unlimited storage to our Pro Account members. This change was mainly designed to provide you with a secure, off-site back up system and to supply more space for your images. Having unlimited storage means that you can now archive as much of your work as you like! This is particularly beneficial if you often find yourself going over-quota even though you’re only displaying current collections.
Also, with unlimited storage you can access your images from anywhere, at any time through the Internet. This means that if a client calls you tomorrow or in two years time you can still make the sale. This not only increases how much you’re earning (obviously) but also enhances the client experience. Who could complain about that?
Equally, unlimited storage is far more cost effective than your regular external hard drives and back up. Don’t believe it? Consider the price of buying the equipment needed to back up your files yourself, as well as the cost of time it takes to manually complete routine check ups. I bet you’d be shocked how much you’re spending, in time and money, just on your past collections! With unlimited storage you get as much space as you need and we do all the security checks and updates for you, and it’s all included in the price of your Pro Account.
Photographs are such an important part of our lives. They capture some of our most important moments and are often the only tangible thing left of our memories. That’s why there is nothing worse than hearing that a client’s disk is no longer compatible with current software or finding out that your hard drive has spontaneously combusted. So why not save yourself the time, money and stress and go pro right now?
If you already have a Pro Account then you don’t have to do anything to get unlimited storage. You’ve automatically got it! If you are using a different account level then you can easily upgrade to the Pro Account right here.
