March Newsletter - PhotoShelter
Newsletter 2010

Summer is in full swing here in New York but just because we've started wearing sandals to the office, it doesn't mean we're not busy making PhotoShelter better. This month, we've launched a new PhotoShelter plugin for WordPress blogs, system updates to many areas of the site and more.

If you do just one thing from this newsletter, be sure to check out our *highly inspiring* interview with Tim Mantoani, about turning your passion into commercial success.

New PhotoShelter WordPress Plugin

Adding PhotoShelter photos to your WordPress blog just got easier - a lot easier. The new PhotoShelter WordPress plugin lets you embed photos and slideshows directly into the body of a blog post without leaving WordPress. This plugin was developed in-house and replaces the version made by Graph Paper Press, and can be used with any WordPress blog.

July System Updates

Since our major site upgrade in June, we've made a range of improvements to various areas of PhotoShelter including: the addition of comments in private galleries, user interface improvements to the shopping cart and support for the newest versions of our existing Graph Paper Press themes.

In addition, we've reduced the bandwidth overage fees from $1/GB to $0.25/GB. For 99% of you, this has no impact because you don't come close to exceeding your bandwidth. But some users who have very high FTP utilization, for example, will be happy to know that their costs have been cut by 75%.
