A lot of new things on planet picload.org
published on November 19, 2010 by Tim.
There has happened a lot since the last entry on 18 August. I'm very glad that I don't have to deliver any bad messages this time, but only good ones. The longed for Archive Uploader has been finally finished, we got new servers, there is a help for the frequently asked questions now, the user area has been extended and the contact page has been revised.
The archive uploader - which a lot of users longed for - was switched from the closed beta phase to the live system. Now you have the opportunity to upload a lot of images at the same time. Three different modes are available for you. You can select between the upload from servers away or the upload of a package in which you have packed your images. You can choose already before the upload whether the images should be moved to a file which already exists or to a new created file. In addition to that, there exists the opportunity to send links per email.
The new contact page went online two weeks ago. We also offer the opportunity of the phone support around picload.org next to the familiar form for getting into contact with us. We are available for you from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. On weekdays under 0800 PICLOAD. This number is free out of all German networks.
A help page with good advise has been ready since the middle of October so that you won't depend on our reaction time if you have some problems or questions about our service. We composed the frequently asked questions and answers on this page. The collection hasn't achieved completeness for a long time yet. Please understand that the search of the questions and answers which are really interesting takes some time. Especially articles around the user area are still absent but they will follow the next days.
In the user area, you have now the opportunity to export the links from selected images, whole files or all of your images as comfortable CSV data file. This function is available for you in the image list and the file administration.
Only yesterday, there has been integrated a special feature in the system. You can decide now for every file whether visitors of your file view can download all inclosed images as ZIP package. However, the preadjustment during the creation of the file forbids the download. You explicitly have to admit it. We are responsive with it to repeated desires of users.
There are still further new functions in development which will be finished the next days and will be available short spell later on our page.
So, enough from us...for now!
Autumnal regards from Schmalkalden wish
