  51 .  Why did I receive message: Photo Removed....?
Hello. I am now taking my 2nd BetterPhoto.com course, & I also have a website through BetterPhoto.com. During the past month or 2, I have added various photos to my website, & I have submitted many for the contest. Until now, I never had a problem. When I went to add a photo today (that I had uploaded a few days ago), I this message: Photo Removed or Not Approved. I was a bit confused. One of the pictures involved a musician, but a previous photo of the same musician had no problem (in fact, it was an "editor's pick". The other pictures that I tried to access got the same message (Photo Removed....) - these were completely benign (i.e. photo of flower, photo of clams, etc.). Can someone please help me understand what's happening? Thanks, in advance.

  Well, I think I answered my own question. It seems that in the "Photos" section of the "Admin Center," I accidentally clicked "private" for several photos, rather than clicking "public." Once I corrected this, I was able to access all my photos, & enter one in today's contest. Oops!

  Glad you worked it out Joshua. Anytime you have questions, email our team bpsupport@betterphoto.com

By the way, if we ever have to remove a photo due to not falling within our family friendly guidelines, we'll always let you know.

Have fun!

And did you realize you can renew your BetterPholio this weekend during the Super Sale extension and get a free year?

Have a great weekend!

  53 .  IPAD support
I am very interested in several things to make BP a more agile environment. I like many others are using an IPAD and would like to be able to upload my photographs dorm this device. additionally, I would like to see an app that helps render my website in a more appealing way on this device. What are the plans? Also I would like to see a LR plugin to upload to BP. If this is not the correct forum for this discussion please let me know.

  Ilene -- I too use iPad most of the time and wonder if there are plans to make Betterphoto compatible or even operable with iPad. As it is, I have just about stopped loading photos to my BP site because I am usually not sitting at my desktop computer. Sure wish there were some answers or other input from both other BP members and from the BP folks!

9/18/2010 10:54:23 AM

  Ahh, so it's not just me! I haven't been able to figure out how to upload from the iPad and thought that it was just my ignorance. I hope to hear good news soon about how to do this.

  54 .  Google Analytics & My Pro Betterfolio
So I followed the instructions to set up Google Analytics for my Pro BetterPholio. Google says it is tracking my site, but I have no hits. Now I'm not expecting major traffic right away or anything, but it has zero data, and I know that quite a few people have been to my site. What could I be missing?!

  I think it works by when you click somebody's photo as being a favorite of yours , it shows up in your member center.

6/1/2010 1:26:06 PM

  ..thanks Gregory! I should have been more explicit; I meant, my customers are trying to save their favorites from their private galleries on my website & apparently the favorites disappear when they visit the website again!This is a new feature on the pro websites so I am not sure if it is even possible for them to be saved!

  I see. Don't know about that. Maybe they need a deluxe site or gallery of their own.
I saw in the descriptions that pro sites have visitor stats, but it didn't explain how anything works.
Could be something about their computer retaining cookies form websites.

  The way the Favorite feature works is when a person marks a photo as a Favorite, a cookie is written in their browser cache that associates that browser on that computer with that Deluxe/Pro BetterPholio in our database. As long as the visitor comes back using the same computer/browser combination and the cookie is still intact, they will see a customized gallery titled My Favorites on that Deluxe/Pro BetterPholio's Gallery page. that My Favorites gallery will contain every photo they've marked as a favorite on that website. If a different browser on the same computer is used, or a different computer, or the cookie is deleted, there will be no My Favorites gallery listed for them.

I hope that helps you understand how this new feature works.

  58 .  looking for website gallery help
I would like to create individual albums for my gallery which would show my editor pics in larger sizes - is this possible with Deluxe/Pro

Also, can I forgoe my home page for just albums - if not, could you tell me why my image with the editor pic notation is not showing up on my home page - I have entered just the id of the pic that was marked editor pic and have deleted all others

Hope you can help

  Hi Kelly,

You can create an individual gallery (Photo Category) on your Pro BetterPholio site and populate it with just your EP photos. Many people have done that very thing. They usually name the gallery Editors Picks, or Contest Entries, or something similar. As long as you have the options to show your Contest and EP graphics turned on (Admin Center > Photos > Gallery Options), the respective badges will appear with the photos. As for having them appear in a larger size, the photos will appear the same size as the large photos in your other galleries (800 pixels on the long side, which is optimum for web display).

You have to use a home page image, or in the case of the Pro BetterPholio, a home page slide show. No contest or EP badges will appear with an image used on the home page - they only appear with the photo in your gallery. I've seen many Deluxe/Pro BetterPholio owners create an image that includes their photography company's name and us it as a single home page photo.

I hope this helps.

Jeff

  59 .  export plug in
is there an export plug in for lightroom to put my photos in better photo?

4/11/2010 6:16:55 PM

  There is no plugin similar to the WP plugin that I know of.

Let me know if you have any questions about exporting images from Lightroom.

  thanks... so how do I export images from lightroom to betterphoto?

4/12/2010 4:21:30 AM

  Its a two-part process: export from LightRoom, then upload via BP.

EXPORT from LightRoom
---------------------
If you want to export a whole bunch of images you can create templates in the Web pane that will do everything automatically. (Same with the Print pane.)

To export one or just a few images, follow these steps:

- In Develop, select your photo. (Click on it to highlight it.)
- Under the Files menu, choose Export. The Export dialog box will pop up.
- From the Export dialog box
-- Under "Export Location" choose
--- where you want to export (save) your photo (c:\BP photos, e.g.)
--- the file format (JPG?)
-- Under "File Settings" choose
--- color space (sRGB for web?)
-- Under "Image Sizing" choose
--- the size and resolution (72dpi for the web?)

You can also apply some standard sharpening and add your copyright data (set elsewhere in LR configuration) in this dialog box.

UPLOAD to BetterPhoto
---------------------
Next, to upload to BetterPhoto go to your Member Center and select "Upload New Photos" from the "Gallery Images" menu (to add to your Gallery) or "Image Uploader" from the "Enter our monthly contest from:" menu (to enter a photo in the monthly contest).

You must have Java enabled to use the uploader.

Just follow the directions/enter appropriate information on the upload page.

When you get to the "drag and drop" uploader, navigate to the folder where you saved your exported image(s).

Click on the photo you want to upload to highlight it (or Ctrl-Click to add multiple photos) and click "Add".

When you have all of the photos you want to upload highlighted, click the "Upload" button.

(NOTE: only upload one contest entry per day.)

  60 .  Size of Photos
I've seen this question before but with no answer. Why do you need to scroll to see my full photo...even landscape. That doesn't seem to be the case with other Deluxe Sites. I've looked through all the questions and tried all the settings to no avail. What am I missing?

  I didn't need to.
Play around with your display settings for your monitor.

  I just visited your site and the photo sizes seem normal to me too.
You can view in Full Screen (F-11) to avoid scrolling on the vertical shots.

(BTW...I'm from MD and I recognize many of the scenes in your Mts. Woodlands and Lakes Gallery.)

3/29/2010 10:01:13 PM

  What Gregory said...It is most likely your screen resolution.

  Thanks for all the answers. I don't understand why I don't need to scroll on other Deluxe sites but I do on my own? It would seem if the monitor is the issue it would be consistent.

In any event, It's good to know it is showing correcting only computers.
