Update 9-12-07

September 12th, 2007


There has been a lot of request for the "Classic" DropShots style as you have called it. Well we are working on a modification to the User Home page view that I think you are REALLY going to like. We are working out the technical issues now so I don’t want to get too specific with promises, but I will tell you it includes:

  • Cleaner, less busy or cluttered look.
  • Ability to see multiple days above the "fold" regardless of how many pictures are in each day.
  • Titles/Commentary above each day <-yeah!

Simply stated, MUCH like the User Home page of the "Classic" DropShots but technically improved with much more attractive design. This really brings together the best of both worlds – the simple, clean and useful user interface of "Classic" DropShots with the technical advancement, speed and elegance of "DropShots 2.0".

Give us a couple/few weeks as Ryan and his team are having to pull out all their tricks to make this work (and work excellently!) on this new architecture.

All your ideas and feedback has been exceptional! Thank you!! We do appreciate it all

    My videos are not showing up, and I cannot submit a trouble ticket either. Says my username (jschiu) does not exist. Can someone look into this and get back to me? Thanks for all your hard work! I appreciate it!

    Hi, When will the wide format be available for videos? All of my wide format videos look awkward on dropshots. Although everyone does look thinner. Thank You!!!

    YEAH!!!! thank you so much for (will be) bringing back the classic look!!!!

  8. elaine S. Says:

    I find that when I add new pictures to an existing album, it doesn’t necessarily get listed chronologically, and there is no way to rearrange the pictures. Can we do anything about that? thanks!

    Coming soon!

    for the past several weeks i’ve been reduced to uploading photos and videos a half dozen at a time due to the flakiness of the dropbox. it will just quit in the midst of an upload and i’m left to figure out which shots made it and which didn’t. the dropbox worked more or less flawlessly for me prior to the big upgrade. do we have any kind of timeline as to when the revised new version and hopefully reliable uploading dropbox might be available? this is very seriously compromising my ability to use the site at this point which is a bumma. thanks…

  13. Kristy Says:

    I have noticed as of today that I cannot upload multiple shots at once. I have to wait until the first shot is completely done in order to start the next one. I usually just select all the pics/videos that I want to upload and drag and drop. Now, I have to singly do them and wait for each one to be done before continuing. This leads to (if videos are included) over a half of an hour of uploading compared to only a few minutes before this issue. Thanks.

    How come all of a sudden, the chinese words on my dropshots are not showing? All turned to weird characters, please check and fix the problem. It was fine couple days ago. All in caption, title, comments. Please check my site to see. http://www.dropshots.com/adentse

    You haven’t posted a new blog since Sept 12th. Are you afraid to come out & say that you really screwed up this attempt to “upgrade” your site and that you really don’t know what you’re doing?

  16. Carole Says:

    Darren, we know you’re working hard, and it looks like you’re trying to make everybody happy, but I have to say again that I’m never going to like this site without the calendar view. I KNOW there has to be a way you can make it work!

    Please tell me that it’s on your list of upcoming improvements?

  17. Jennie Says:

    As recently as Sept. 16, when I cut and pasted HTML code to post on my blog, each photo had an embedded link BACK TO THAT PHOTO ON DROPSHOTS. Now, for some strange reason, the link is only back to dropshots.com. WHY??!? Why would you change that? Why make it even harder for readers of my blog to see all my photos on DropShots? First, you took away the ability to post thumbnails of all my photos on my blog, and now this. It seems like every change you make is to the detriment of blog users. HELP!!!

  18. Adentse Says:

    Please help!!! All of a sudden, the photos and videos I uploaded tonight (Oct. 2nd) are not showing in dropshots, how come? I have already downloaded and upgraded to dropbox 6.0. Please help!!! Please check my site to help! http://www.dropshots.com/adentse

  19. Lindsey Says:

    LOVE the new layout!!!!

  20. Kate Says:

    Does anyone else have a problem with the new screen size of the videos? Personally, I liked it when the screen size was smaller. It seems now that the videos I upload are very pixelated whereas when it was a smaller screen size they were much clearer. It would be great if this could be an option for us to choose which size we would like to use, rather than it mandatory. Thanks all

    How can I move photos around in each album in classic?


    [From Susan – Customer Support]

    You can change the order of photos/videos in an album simply by changing the date/time stamp of the photos/videos.

    Why can;t I make Dropshots work on my IPad Pro? I cannot find a link to create a new album.

  24. Eliza D. Says:

    Hi Bruce, the current version of the app doesn’t have this feature, but our developers are working on it. Sorry for the inconvenience.
