It's been a long time coming but, the ePHOTOzine team are now extremely happy to announce that the brand-new Profiles and Gallery are now live. 

This is our biggest update to date and we've changed / upgraded quite a lot this time including the following:  

  • Galleries
  • Upload Page
  • Photo Display Page
  • VS Mode
  • Latest Gallery Comments
  • Profiles (aka Portfolio) and all internal pages within this area
  • Messages (aka Private Messages)
  • Classified Ads
  • Blogs
  • Login/Logout/Password reminder
  • Join Page

 

Commenting on the upgrade, David Burleson, Web Team Manager, said: "Over the past year, we've been working hard on ePHOTOzine's galleries and profiles to bring them up-to-date with today's expectations for a photography website. We've put emphasis on making the gallery a more visual experience. We believe we've achieved this with the upgrade by upgrading the size at which photos are displayed and cleaning up the design to allow photos to really 'shine'. We hope the ePHOTOzine community enjoys the upgrade as much as we enjoyed building it."

 

Gallery Improvements

A new justified view now greets you when you visit the Gallery, with images appearing larger and the overall design looking cleaner and modern. Infinite scroll has also been introduced so you can view the gallery with ease, plus it's also mobile device friendly meaning you can view images on-the-go.

How do I access the "subsets" under "Galleries"? I used to be able to scroll down and select "architecture" or other topics.

Hi pilotpaul,

The gallery categories & tag filtering can be reached by using the 'filter' button now at the top right of the galleries.

Please explain how to access "subsets" of the "Galleries"---i.e. "architectural". I think the new design is very confusing and not the least bit "self event" to maneuver.
just about getting used to it,but like it.raygregson

New version is a lot slower. Although I Like some features, overall I prefered it as it was.
