New BatesCentral Pictures Website

Yes, I have been woefully deficient at updating our website. Yes, I have promised and promised to upload new pictures. Yes, I have thrown myself at your mercy before… that is all in the past! I will now live up to some of my past promises. The new BatesCentral Gallery site is online!

I was planning on customizing the gallery site to look and feel more like our main site, but I just can’t seem to find the time. Regardless, it will now be a lot easier and less time consuming for me to post new pictures online. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I still won’t be great about posting pictures immediately ;-), but I will be much better!

Features of the new gallery:

  • Better organization into albums
  • Movie clips (okay, the old gallery had them too, but they are much cooler now!)
  • Pictures and albums are searchable
  • There is an RSS feed (for the real web geeky types)
  • Has a way cool random picture and most viewed picture
  • You can upload directly to PhotoWorks and Shutterfly (the quality I use on the web is good for 4×6 and 5×7)
  • More features will be added as I play with it

I still need to improve the look and feel a bit. I think navigating around the gallery pages could be more intuitive. For now, I thought it was good enough to go live with the site and improve it as I go.
To get to the new gallery site you can use the link in the “Pages” section of the website or use this BatesCentral Gallery link.
