Introducing Snapizzi Stor

Hello, friends of Snapizzi! We’re excited to introduce Snapizzi Stor which enables you to use Snapizzi as a standalone solution without the need for a connected e-commerce platform.

Stor was purpose-built for photographers who use the pre-pay model for customer orders and are not posting images online. The Snapizzi Stor module can be added to your Snapizzi account for an additional $10 per month for up to 1TB of storage.

Stor does not offer any customer-facing e-commerce features. Stor is simply a place where your Project images are stored rather than an e-commerce platform.

Once added, you’ll see the Snapizzi Stor option under the Wrench Menu > Photo Services:

You might be wondering what’s coming up next. Well, lots. You should expect to see even more value shipped your way this year. We’ll tackle some common requests you’ve been asking for along with features that will save you even more time!

We’re grateful for all your support on this journey to build something great. We promise to continue creating and growing through a human-centered approach—putting people and conversations at the center of everything we do.

Single Search Pages and Expanded Customization

I meant it when I said we have an aggressive roadmap planned for 2018! Hot on the heels of our big CSV update 5 days ago, I’m excited to announce another awesome release that features Single Search Pages for Projects.

While we were at it, we thought you’d also like it if we added 28 new points of customization for search pages. You can find these new controls under Wrench menu > Search Profile.

Once again, these improvements are a byproduct of listening to — and understanding — our users’ needs. So please let us know what you think. We love hearing from you.

CSV File Editing Simplified

Hello, friends of Snapizzi! Today I’m excited to announce that our latest version release features the ability to edit CSV files directly within Snapizzi! No more downloading a Subject List, editing in Excel, and then uploading. Everything can now be done directly in the new Snapizzi List Editor — saving you even more time!

Work Even Faster with Gallery Verify and Placeholder

Hello, friends of Snapizzi! Here’s what we’ve been working on lately to make Snapizzi even better.

Gallery Verify

We built the Gallery Verify tool so you can make sure all of the remote galleries on your connected platform are working properly. The tool will iterate through the Subject List testing if the remote galleries exist and are working. Snapizzi will attempt to repair any broken links.

Placeholder

The Placeholder tool will save your location anytime you invoke one of the Inspector Repair tools. Clicking it will bring you back to the location you were at when you first opened the tool so you don’t have to navigate through the Project pages to resume your work.

Show Hints

You’ll find this button at the top of the Dashboard and Inspector. It gives you quick, easy access to the Knowledge Base articles for all of the tools and features of the Dashboard and Inspector. You can also launch a tour of the Dashboard and Inspector to help you get the most out of Snapizzi.

We hope you like these improvements. We’ll get back to making Snapizzi even better for you! If you have any questions or suggestions, email success@snapizzi.com. We love hearing from you!

Pinning Simplifies Gallery Sharing

When using paper versions of Snapizzi’s camera cards, Subject galleries are easily shared by simply photographing all the Subject codes in the same keyframe image preceding the photo series you’d like to share.

However, there wasn’t a convenient way to do this when using Snapizzi Paperless without having to use multiple display devices or windows for each code — each of those options presented their own unique challenges. So we set out to solve that problem for our users.

Today we’re excited to announce our solution! Pinning makes it is easy to share Subject galleries on-the-fly when using Snapizzi Paperless. Pinning enables you to temporarily combine up to four Subject codes into a single code to be photographed. This means that up to three codes can be pinned to a fourth with the single matrix changing each time to reflect the shared galleries. 

Read the Knowledge Base article to learn more about how this new feature works.

Paper Proofing for Groups, Project Metrics, and More!

Our latest release offers features and improvements that are just one more step in our relentless pursuit to make Snapizzi even better!  Paper proofing leveled-up again! You can now make proof sheets of Group photos. You have the option to proof only Subject images, only Group images, or both.

We’re also pleased to announce the Project Summary tool. This will give you insight into the metrics for your Projects, including data from your Studio Search Page showing the number of searches and successful forwards to your connected platform.

Other notable items:

  • Hovering over an image in any Repair Tool modal will magnify the image and display the filename. In case you didn’t already know, hovering over any code in these modals will also display the Subject data connected to that code.
  • Gallery naming is now supported for all platforms.
  • Added a dropdown field selection menu in the paper proofing modal.
  • Blog link added to the Dashboard.
  • Replaced the Task progress icon.

We hope you enjoy these new additions. You can expect more time-saving features in the coming weeks and months. If you don’t already have an account, get a free 14-day trial here.

Snapizzi Now Works with Libris

We’re at it again! Say hello to Libris by PhotoShelter! Libris is a cloud-based, Enterprise Digital Asset Management (DAM) platform for visual media designed for businesses and organizations.

librisLibris lets you upload all of your media assets (and their metadata) from your hard drive, server, camera and mobile device right to your account with the click of a button. With unlimited contributors, your whole team can upload photos and videos to the same place, whether they’re in the office or on the go. Store and organize all of your assets in Libris so you can find exactly what you need in seconds.

How is Libris different from PhotoShelter?

While PhotoShelter Photographer accounts are similar to Libris accounts, they differ in a few key areas:

  • A Libris account may be owned by a company or institution, rather than an individual.
  • Libris accounts have a multi-user, role-based structure.
  • The Libris user interface and terminology are geared to organizations rather than photographers.
  • Libris offers a consolidated organization and permission structure, appropriate for a company.
  • Libris offers limited customization options, while PhotoShelter Photographer accounts offer a wide range of professional portfolios and customizable websites.
  • Video support is an available option for Libris accounts.

With Libris, you can easily grant access to photos and videos, and make image requests self-service. Libris makes it effortless for your team and partners to search, browse and download, which means they’ll download assets more often and help you get more ROI from your visual media library. With easy access to photos and videos, you’ll be able to take advantage of more opportunities to tell your brand’s story.
