Upload Manager Has Been Redesigned


ANNOUNCER:  Welcome to the More Photos Radio Photography Spotlight brought to you by helping professional photographers with all their internet needs. Also brought to you by Finally, an e-commerce solution for professional photo labs that makes sense. Now here is your host, Damien Allen.  DAMIEN: Good afternoon and welcome to More Photos Radio. My name is Damien Allen, and joining me today on the telephone is Amanda Combest of More Photos. Good afternoon, Amanda, how are you?
AMANDA: I’m great. Thanks Damien.
DAMIEN: How long have you been with the company, and what is your position with More Photos, Amanda?
AMANDA: I was hired on at WD Web/More Photos in January 2000 as a designer. As the need for more dynamic database driven websites because more popular, I kind of moved into a programming position shortly after that, and now I’m the Web Applications Manager where my primary focus is on the More Photos’ cart and online manager, and I’ve been with the company for 10 and ½ years.
DAMIEN: So you’ve been there for just a little over a decade. How has More Photos evolved with the growth of the internet, Amanda?
AMANDA: I don’t really know how to describe how it has grown with the internet, but More Photos has evolved tremendously since its inception. It’s been really exciting to watch it grow and evolve into a tool for our photographers to enhance and grow their business.
DAMIEN: Well, Amanda, what is the new online manager and how will it work?
AMANDA: Well the new online manager has gone through a facelift. With the changes in the economy, we realized it was more important than ever to make sure our management tools are intuitive as possible. With these changes we hope users will find it easier to navigate the system better, and as well, these changes have laid the groundwork for even more enhancements to come. So it’s just the starting point.
DAMIEN: What new benefits or features are you most excited about bringing to the market?
AMANDA: I really get excited about everything we do; I honestly do. The features we are currently working on are the new online manager, some drop down menus to enhance our existing flash layouts. Those are like sub-menus of menus.   A feature to limit the number of poses and products when they are being ordered and instant digital image download is a new enhancement we are adding.
DAMIEN: Is Summer 2010 still the expected release date?
AMANDA: Yes, we are looking to have a Beta release here very, very shortly.
DAMIEN: What is the best tip you can tell MorePhotos customers to get them started, Amanda?
AMANDA:  Well I would say to learn all the features available to you, and then decide which ones will benefit your business and workflow the best. Keep it simple. Don’t over do it. The system is very flexible to fit a variety of needs, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you should use every feature. Just utilize the ones that make the most sense to you and your business.
DAMIEN: Well if someone wants more information, how can they get a hold of you and what is the website and contact information?
AMANDA: They can get ahold of me at and the website is
