Major Update of BlueUpload Anywhere

This newest update makes our application fully capable of complete album and category management. You may now use it not only for uploading - where it excels - but also for managing the category-album hierarchy.

BlueUpload Anywhere 2.7 allows you to create new categories and albums and to rename the existing ones. It is also able to change the access mode for your albums including the possibility of setting a password for the protected ones. Furthermore, we have implemented the "drag and drop" system for moving your Albums between Categories and made it possible for you to add descriptions to them.

These features can be accessed via the "Manage" button located on the album row at the top of the application.

Full album downloader

Have you ever tried downloading all the photos in a single album one by one? Either way it would have been a lot of boring work, wouldn't it? To give you a helping hand, we have created a single button for downloading all the photos within an album with just a few clicks. You may find the “download” button right at the top of every album.

After clicking the “download” button you are asked to choose a destination directory for your photos. You may also choose one of the three naming modes: “Original file name”, “Photo title” or “Numbering from 001”.

Furthermore, our downloader is able to resume previous downloading, were it cancelled or should it fail for whatever other reason, by recognizing already downloaded Photos in the destination directory.

If you wish to disable full album downloader for all or only some of your Albums, use the Allow Album Download drop-down menu in your “Control Panel” for all albums or same drop-down menu in “Album Settings” for a specific one.

Password protected albums available

We have added a new access mode for those who like vaults or those who have albums for certain people only. There may be other groups of people who will enjoy it as well. As the other access modes so also password protection is located at the bottom in the album settings with its own checkbox. After checking it, you shouldn’t forget to create a password and then save it.

When someone tries to reach your locked Photos, he shall recognize such Album by the “Password protected” label. However, any password protection is only as safe as is the password itself so choose it wisely and try to remember it.

Photos order management

We have made another step to enable you to manage your Photos as you wish.

It works pretty much the same way as in most of operating systems; the only difference is that you have to set this option in the settings of your Album. If you wish to change the way your Photos are ordered, you can do so in the "Control panel" for all albums or in album settings for each album individually. There exist three automatic management systems and one manual: “Newest to oldest“, “Oldest to newest“, “By title“and the “User defined order“. All of them are located in the dropdown menu labeled “Photos order“. After choosing any of them, you should click the save button.

If you wish to change the order of your Photos manually, you can do this in album settings just by switching to the “Photos Order” tab at the top and using the Drag & Drop system to perfect your Album lookout.
