Beta Launch Third Phase – Give Us Your Feedback

28

You've seen some updates in recent weeks - mostly it's been new sections to our "Magazine":/magazine. But today we can show you something totally new: more options for you to add and contribute something to our Magazine posts. So far your interaction with the new site has been limited to comments. But now you can add pictures to existing entries - for example the "film":/magazine/films and "camera":/magazine/cameras review section: if you have taken shots with a specific film or camera you can add them. Also if you really like one article you can add it to your favorite social network site: like "StumbleUpon":http://www.stumbleupon.com, "Facebook":http://www.facebook.com, "MySpace":http://www.myspace.com, "Digg":http://www.digg.com, "del.icio.us":http://del.icio.us or "Magnolia":http://ma.gnolia.com (if we've forgotten a site you really love and use a lot: let us know, just leave a comment and we will add it).

So you can test out the new upload feature straight away we are setting you a little challenge! Please upload your very best images to the theme Work In Progress – every user is limited to three shots. The very best image will be made into a banner, which we will use on this site. So give it a try!

    Before uploaded images are displayed with the post for everyone to view they have to be approved by an editor.

    By the way:
    There's better newline handling on comments now.
    One newline becomes a line break.

    An empty line creates a paragraph.

    Cool new feature!!! I love the possibility of uploading pics for the film & camera section!! :)) Must have a look if I've got some cool "work in progress" shots....

    hey peter, thanks for the line breaking & paragraphing!

    btw, I'd like to have the "by katykate 1|5 . previous image . next image . slideshow ." stuck in one position to take away the need to move the pointer if the shots are of different sizes. was thinking on top instead but then the pointer would hang over the shot.. not good.
    well, just an idea. I actually think it looks tight like it is now~

    i just had to try if image uplod is workng,
    great feature

    Hum one other feedback I just thought about: Isn't it possible that you add the check box "keep me logged in" like there is in the "old" version?! It's quite boring to have to login every time (or is it just me?)

    And I agree with jonasfx, it would be better with a photo area that doesn't change size for every picture...

    I like this new tool although I'm not using any of the sites listed below ;)

    I am trying ....all the time.
    When I took these photos, I was trying my camera...
    Now, I am Trying this "beta" page...
    "B" position...
    Doubles in the FED5...
    Doubles FED5 & Fisheye...

    This is a "trying life"!!!

    if you click on the photo itself, the photos change, regardless of the size of the photos... so it's not necessary to always click on "next" etc... this allows for more flexibility with photos sizes... good thing... yes? yes.

  14. fash_on

    uploaded 2, but first one was a mistake,
    2nd one should fit the theme :)
    option to delete the uploaded pic seems wise now?
    great feature though!!

    hey there! great to hear you are into the uploads.

    one thing: once we launch the new homes and lab section all your uploaded shots from here will be visible there. so anything you upload right now will be editable later - which brings us to the next topic: yes, homes and lab: we are working on it. will be one of the next features...

    as for the different sizes: as liad pointed out: clicking on the image will bring you to the next shot, but i will add the "pointing finger" cursor to make it more visible... thanks!

    hey! this is the new feature that i requested in the 1st "give us your feedback", thanks!

    Just tried the upload function and the security settings in my Internet Explorer doens't allow it to function. Switched over to FireFox and boom, it works like a charm =)

    Two of my construction images...a fuji sensia x-pro shot of my best friend Allan constructing a tower out of overturned shot glasses, and an Agat18k half-frame shot of some more traditional construction...

    Why do my uploaded shots appear twice in the "your uploaded images" section? Because they're already on my lomohome?? Any possibility to erase some shots if there's some mistake with uploading a wrong shot???

  24. anarchy
    anarchy ·

    Yeah, mine appear twice too...

  25. tawan
    tawan ·

    No, there is no connection to your current lomohome, yet. There has been a minor bug, which we already fixed. It caused, that your uploads appeared twice, even though only one copy has been uploaded.

    Thanks for the hint.

    clicking on the photo itself works like a charm~
    I'm not looking forward to the finger though... it's so big and gross. haha

    The new site looks cosy. But one thing that'd be great if there was a list with the latest posts from all categories. So that you dont have to check the BLOG the CAMERA the LOCATIONS categories and so on..

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
