Beta Launch: Lab Coming Soon

The Beta site keeps growing and growing. What have we been up to? Here's a short summary:

The Beta site keeps growing and growing. What have we been up to? Here’s a short summary:

  • You can share your favorite magazine entries on Stumbleupon, Digg, del.icio.us, Magnolia, Facebook and MySpace
  • You can upload images to some feature entries – like rumbles, the film reviews…
  • You can submit your own stories

But the biggest thing for us: we’ve been working on the Lab, the place for you to upload images. Some users have already received an email asking them to test this feature. So far we’ve had great feedback, both positive and constructive – thanks to all of you! Our next step is to open the Lab to more users, so we can see how well it works with multiple users uploading, editing and sorting at the same time.

We’ve worked on some of your requests and now you can…

  • Upload more than one image at once
  • Drag and drop your images into different albums
  • Tag images, add a camera, film and location
  • Edit multiple shots at the same time
  • Forget about re-sizing because this is done automatically and portrait shots are also supported.

So you want to be a test user too? Just leave a comment on this blog entry and the first people to respond will get an email from us with more details. Thanks! And here is a demonstration video of the new Lab:

    I can assure you: the new upload tool is very cool and pretty easy to use! Thanks a lot for all the work you've put into this relaunch of lomography.com so far.

    Yeah, great features in this new lab, I agree with graefin!! A real lomo-revolution for an easier, and quicker use, and a better quality of pics! Fantastic multi-upload task! Can't wait to see the next big step: the LOMOHOMES! :))))))

    this is just what i was hoping for, everything sounds great; the drag and drop, auto resizing, portrait support (this is really great cos i actually avoid shooting portrait sometimes cos i know it won't look great on here) but the best thing is definitely the multiple upload, can't wait for it to be up and running, it's gonna be brilliant, and hopefully it'll galvanise me into getting my scanner fixed...

    Looks good. I'd love to give it a go. One question though, will there also be an API for it? I'd love to see a plugin for iPhoto (or other photo apps) similar to flickr uploader. I get all my lomo shots scanned at the photolab, and bring them straight into iPhoto for organising - so a neat and easy way of getting them from that point up to online would be great.

    I've been hoping for this for quite a while. I did a lot of work to my Lomohome and uploaded a lot of pictures, but I became less active here and more active on flickr because of the difficulty in using the lab here, but I would really like to participate here more. This is a great move for you guys. I would like to try it out A.S.A.P.
