Have your visitors upload their photos to your albums

Power and Enterprise users can from now on set up an upload password for each album and enable their visitors to upload photos directly to their account. The password can be set for all albums in the Control Panel or for each album in its settings. If neither password is set, only the album owners can upload photos to their albums.

New Gadgets available for your homepage

Two more Gadgets have been made available for you to add to your homepage or any category :  "Text Gadget" and "Album Preview Gadget".

Both of these can be added via the homepage's "Layout" drop down menu by selecting "Add Gadget...". The equivalent for a category is the "Add Gadget" button in the top right corner of the screen. These open a Gadget selection panel as the one in the screenshot below :

Presently there are the two Gadgets to choose from. Their names are rather self explanatory. The Text Gadget allows you to add any text to your homepage and choose the text size ; Power and Enterprise users can style and format the text and also use hypertext links. The Album Preview Gadget makes it possible to display up to three rows of photos from a selected album and the size of the photo's can be changed as well.

The two Gadget creation panels can be seen in the following screenshots:

You can add each Gadget as many times as you want and the Gadgets can be edited anytime and their position on the homepage can also be changed. In the screenshot below, you can see an example of both Gadgets.
