Lightroom grain option

Finally found the time to play around with lightroom 3. I still need to try out all the new features, but I like my first quick result.

Photoshelter announces upgrades

Great news from Photoshelter this week. They announced an upcoming site upgrade for June 10, 2010 with excellent new features.

  • Simplified website setup, customization, and management
  • Structural changes to help search engines find more of your images
  • Shorter URL structure that places your branding ahead of PhotoShelter

In particular the changes to support search engines are long awaited. This should solve the current issues with mixing your brand domain name with the photoshelter urls to your galleries. Allowing you to build your brand more effectively.

And even with the Photoshelter basic and starter accounts your brand will now lead ahead of Photoshelter.

Providing you with a complete standalone photography website perfectly suited to grow your business, outfitted with all of PhotoShelter's powerful tools for marketing, e-commerce, and client management.
