The site has gone through a bit of a metamorphosis. Its been re-designed With a bunch of new features, a cleaner/simpler (read: faster) theme. There is still some content to be added (like the About page is missing) but I wanted to get the announcement out now because I'm excited about the site.
I've added a new forum for discussion of Photography topics, and the scionpix site in general (for automotive questions and discussion, please continue to use New Scion xB). Join in the discussion
Got something to sell, automotive parts, photography equipment or just generally trying to clean out the garage. There is now a Classifieds section to the site that will allow you to post for sale, wanted, or even for trade items. Check it out
Bulk Image Uploading
While its not new, its been re-configured to make it easier for you to upload multiple files at once with many different options and methods available to you. The default upload method is a Java applet that is quick and simple and will work on any modern browser. If the Java Applet isn't what you want, you can choose among the following other methods.
You can also upload a zip file full of images and the zip will automatically be uncompressed into the album of your choice.
Windows XP users can use the built in "Publish to Web" wizard to automatically publish entire folders (or a subset of pictures in a folder) to your album quickly and easy.
If you on a Mac, Linux or Vista and you still want to be able to publish images without opening the website up, the Java Application "Gallery Remote" can be installed and help you to organize, upload and create new albums of photos without ever touching an internet browser.
Already have a collection of images on another website and you want to move them into your scionpix album? Use the "Web Page" import method, copy and paste the URL of the page that contains the images you want, and a list of all images on the page will be displayed. Simply check the box next to the images you want to import, submit, and your done.
If you are familiar with WebDAV, and would like to link your gallery on your desktop using WebDAV, we support that too!
A very big WELCOME to all of you coming from New Scion xB.com. I've seen a lot of second generation xB's signing up lately!.
I've been working on streamlining the menu system so that you can more quickly and easily get to the sections of the site that matter to you. If you see anything you think could be done better, is missing, or is unnecessary, please let me know via the Feedback Forum. Also, I've upgraded the server to php5 to resolve some performance issues that were causing 500 internal server errors in the gallery.
I've added fields to your user profile that can be viewed in groups. What does that mean? It means that you can now tell ScionPix, and the entire ScionPix membership, exactly what scion you have (year, model, color, mods etc) and many of the fields are used to build lists of members with similar features.
For example, if you wanted to see all the users who had a Black Sand Pearl Scion, you can click on the link below.
I highly encourage you to log in to ScionPix, and edit your profile (Click the "My Profile" link at the top of the page) to let everybody know about your scion. Its the easiest way for people to find your pictures too!
I'm proud of all our members and their great photography. And I couldn't be more happy about the enthusiasm that all of you show for the site. Since august when I started the site there have been almost 19,000 unique page views, and that doesn't count image views on other sites!
So to help you guys show your support, I've created some merchandise that you can wear to events, or while your taking your snapshots. http://www.scionpix.com/onlinestore"]Take some time and visit our store[/url]. Money from the sales of these items will go towards the costs of the server, and possibly future expansion.
