You may now re-order your albums as well

The - although maybe seemingly petty - quite desired feature of changing the order of the user's albums has been recently implemented. The BlueMelon users could heretofore arrange only the photos within the albums but now they can also order the albums themselves.

The former can still be achieved using the "Arrange Photos" entry accessible via each photo's "Tools" menu which opens the album's "Settings" on the "Order photos" tab - there it is possible to arrange them using the Drag&Drop feature.

The latter can be achieved using the "Arrange Albums" button which is displayed on the right side of each category view as can be seen in the screenshot below :

... after clicking the button, the user is presented with an interface similar to the one shown below, where it is possible to arrange the albums :

... the changes affect the category or the user's homepage immediately after an album has been dropped to a new position :

BlueMelon integrates the Facebook service

Facebook users are now offered a new feature :  posting a link to a photo, an album, or an album's slideshow directly from BlueMelon to their Facebook "Wall" via the BlueMelon interface.

The feature can be found in the "Share" menu via the "Share on Facebook" entry :

 ... you need to be logged in to Facebook and if you are not, you are presented with the login option. After you have logged in, you may post a link to either a photo, a whole album, or an album's slideshow - this can be chosen in the drop-down menu as can be seen in the screenshot below. You can also type a text that will be posted with the content.

... after you click the "Send" button, a like of this will appear on your Facebook "Wall" - clicking the image opens the BlueMelon's page for the content that you have chosen as mentioned above.

Pleasant sharing ... and not only to Facebook users.
