February 12th, 2024

As requested, we made it easier for clients to find and retrieve free digital downloads on iOS devices. 🙌

We nixed the confusing flow that auto-downloaded free image files to hard-to-find folders. Now, clients can easily download individual free digitals to their photos app! 

February 8th, 2024

Remember how we said the first navigation update was laying the groundwork for more changes? Well, those changes are here. 💃 

Click the banner atop your ShootProof dashboard to trial the Beta experience, then click “Provide Feedback” (in the top left corner) to share your thoughts! 

Note: You can opt in and out of the new experience throughout the 30-day Beta.

January 19th, 2024

There’s a new way to control what a client gallery looks like. 🙌  Well, sort of… 😉
Instead of manually clicking and dragging gallery photos to mix up their order, you can now click “Random” to do the work for you!

January 12th, 2024

Searching in galleries is easier than ever now that clients can type to search in their Gallery’s drop-down menu! ✨ This will make it much easier for volume photography clients to easily find their album within a large gallery.

January 8th, 2024

We’ve updated the Orders page so you’ll now see the name of the album a photo lives within beneath the image preview, plus we made it clickable so it takes the client directly to that album. If the image associated with an item doesn’t live within a specific album, they’ll see (and be able to click) “All Photos” instead.

January 4th, 2024

Have a lot of products to offer? Then you’ll love this update! To make editing your Price Sheets easier, you can now quickly add all available lab products to a category by choosing “Select All.”

January 4th, 2024

We’ve increased load speed significantly across all pages in ShootProof. 🏃 This update will be especially evident for studios with many notifications (specifically, high-volume photographers)!

December 19th, 2023

Framed Prints are now available to studios with Bay Photo price sheets! 🖼️ Add this highly requested product to your price sheet to set yourself up for success in the new year.

December 13th, 2023

To help clients envision their keepsake product in a real world environment, new custom scene renders have been added to Acrylic Photo Blocks displaying them on tabletops.

December 1st, 2023

Music to your ears… 🎶 The song library for studios on the Ultimate Music Plan has expanded from 20k to 29k+ songs, while the library of each individual collection has (more than) doubled from 115 to 130+ songs! 🎉

November 29th, 2023

To help clients understand the other purchasing options available when viewing packages, we’ve increased the size of the “Learn More” button and removed the term ‘a la carte’. We think this reads much clearer.

November 27th, 2023

Ornaments are now available to studios with Bay Photo price sheets, just in time for the holidays! 🎄 Add this fun, giftable item to your offerings as the perfect add-on your clients’ won’t be able to resist.

November 21st, 2023

To enable clients to see more product options when they shop from galleries, we've increased their view from one tile to two tiles per row on the product select drawer and Store landing pages on mobile devices.

November 20th, 2023

Framed Prints are now available to studios with WHCC price sheets! 🖼️ We’re adding these one lab at a time (so we can get them to you faster!), so stay tuned for more lab-specific updates.

November 17th, 2023

We’ve just ticked another request off the list by making it easier for volume clients to find their albums within nested album structures. 🫡

Before this update, the drop-down menu only showed the album and/or sub-album name. Now, however, you’ll see each album and sub-album name breadcrumbing the client to their destination.

November 16th, 2023

A handful of studios requested that we disable in-room previews entirely for items in custom, self-fulfilled product categories so that those items are not rendered hanging on a wall (although if you want to proudly hang an album, we won’t stop you).

To accommodate this request, we’ve made it so any item within a custom, self-fulfilled product category will not render in-room previews.

November 15th, 2023

We’re back with ANOTHER Gallery Store improvement you requested. 👍 

To prevent sticker shock, we updated the “buy all digitals” workflow so the per digital price for all gallery photos will not display when a user clicks “Buy all photos” IF you’ve set an album and/or gallery price.

November 15th, 2023

Great news for holiday shopping! 🎄 The shipping fee for orders containing only WHCC cards has decreased from $19.99 to $12.99.

November 14th, 2023

As requested, we increased the visibility of product sizes and digital download purchase options, including the "all photos in albums" and "all photos in gallery" options. Now gallery visitors will see all available sizes and purchase options in a grid, rather than a dropdown menu.

November 9th, 2023

Additional users with read-only access to ShootProof Pay can now easily navigate there through the "Commerce > Payments" menu item.

November 9th, 2023

We streamlined the shopping experience so gallery visitors are dropped directly on a product category page (like the Prints page) or the Packages page when that’s the only category offered.

They will now skip the page that previously showed a single tile.

November 1st, 2023

After learning the product previews for digital downloads were rendering strangely for some studios, we made some changes! No more zooming in or cropping issues. 

Now, the image that populates the computer monitor ⬇️ maintains its original aspect ratio to preserve the image as-is. 

Plus, we removed the icon overlay for an unobstructed view. 👍

October 30th, 2023

Acrylic Photo Blocks are now available to studios with Bay Photo price sheets! 😍 Stay tuned as we continue to add them to more labs.

October 30th, 2023

No favorites yet? No worries. 👍 

As requested, we updated the look of this page when a gallery doesn’t have any favorited images yet. Check it out. 👇

October 30th, 2023

According to your feedback, the non-clickable radio button appearing on images in the package builder, compare view, and the new Gallery Store was confusing. That’s why we made it AND the entire image clickable.

October 25th, 2023

Some studios requested the ability to turn the new Gallery Store experience on or off, so we added a toggle 👇 to Shopping Cart Settings

It will let you disable the product-first shopping experience and hide the "Store" link in a gallery’s navigation menu. However, it will not affect the images and/or product previews rendered throughout the right-hand “shopping drawer” that houses the traditional photo-first shopping experience.

October 3rd, 2023

More visual, user-friendly, and easy to navigate — the new Store experience where clients shop by product first is everything you asked for. Just in time for holiday sales, too! Details on the blog (and the new Store page!).

October 2nd, 2023

Acrylic Photo Blocks are now available to studios with WHCC price sheets! ✨ We’ll be adding these one lab at a time (so we can get them to you faster!), so keep your eyes peeled for more lab-specific updates.

September 21st, 2023

September 20th, 2023

September 19th, 2023

As requested, price sheets have gotten a makeover! We’ve revamped their look, layout, and function so they’re more intuitive and easier to navigate. They’re even mobile-friendly now! Details on the blog 🙌

September 10th, 2023

You asked, we listened! You can now set a Gallery’s Linked Contact as the audience for your Email Campaign. 🙌 This means you can get more specific with your messaging so it really resonates.

August 18th, 2023

Never again will a client order a 5x7 canvas thinking it’ll make a great statement piece on their wall. That’s because they’ll now see two in-room previews that reflect the ideal way a product should be displayed.

August 9th, 2023

Sharing is caring. 💗 The photo limit for mobile apps has increased from 100 to 250, so you can now include more of your beautiful images in these custom digital photo albums, perfect for clients to share with family and friends!

August 3rd, 2023

We don’t want your clients to shop til they drop, but they should certainly shop and spend more thanks to these updates. Head to the blog to discover how we’ve put both gallery photos and the items clients purchase front and center in our new-and-improved shopping experience.

August 1st, 2023

In preparation for a new-and-improved ordering experience for your clients (launching later this week!), we've added expert-written product descriptions that will preemptively address their questions so you won't need to explain the difference between glossy and lustre ever again.

July 12th, 2023

The photo grid has been optimized to significantly increase performance and speed. Your clients can now enjoy faster load times, especially in higher volume galleries.⚡️

July 5th, 2023

You now have the ability to showcase the cover photo as a Banner Image and save it as a Preset. Head over to your gallery settings in 'Layout' to see this option in action.

June 30th, 2023

The cropping tool now supports circular crops, making it easier for your clients to visualize (and purchase) round products like magnets and buttons!

June 12th, 2023

More gallery updates are here! It’s now easier for clients to proof photos, make their selections through favorites and labels, and enjoy a modern and beautifully branded experience. Learn more about the improvements on the blog.

June 12th, 2023

The flow of the password screen has improved for private albums! It now allows your client to try again after selecting “cancel”. Previously, they would get stuck on an empty page.

May 17th, 2023

The cropping tool has been updated to include full screen edit on desktop, a new undo and redo feature, a new zoom functionality, and more. The result? Easier photo editing and purchasing for you and your clients! Learn more on the blog.

May 16th, 2023

We've added an additional "Create Gallery" button to the navigation menu, so the core functionality you need is always at your fingertips with fewer clicks to get the job done!

May 5th, 2023

We fixed a pesky little bug disabling the "Add Photos" button for galleries in specific scenarios. Now...go forth and upload your images to your heart's content!

April 27th, 2023

You asked for gallery upgrades, and oh boy — did our Engineering Team deliver!

Learn all about the updated mobile experience that will make navigating through galleries a dream.

The subscription experience for new users is better than ever! Photographers joining the ShootProof family can evaluate savings with annual vs monthly payments, change their plan, and make their first payment all on a clear, concise page.

April 19th, 2023

Rest easy...a bug has been fixed to ensure no orders slip through the cracks into production if the payment method fails.

April 13th, 2023

Consider the beans officially spilled. 🫘

Yep, it's a release note on release notes! How's that for inception? Here's where you can find regular updates on the work we're doing to enhance ShootProof.

April 13th, 2023

Order hiccups? No thanks!

We have a new, improved, and automated process behind-the-scenes that communicates between our lab partners and customer service team to ensure all orders are processed successfully and on-time.

March 13th, 2023

Polished and branded and professional…oh my! 🌟

We’re in the process of modernizing our gallery experience. See what we’ve updated so far, and how it will elevate your brand, in the blog.

March 8th, 2023

To the left, to the left… 👯‍♀️

The new navigation menu is now live for all studios 🎉 And it’s — you guessed it — now on the left side of your screen! Learn why (and which of your requests we’ve implemented so far) in the blog.

March 6th, 2023

Call me the (ex)Terminator, because we’re squashing bugs left and right. 🪲

Once we learned a studio’s client downloaded digitals despite payment not going through, we squashed the bug, ensuring the system properly withholds digital files until payment is processed and confirmed. 🦟

February 27th, 2023

Hand holding is cute and all, but it can also be a huge help — especially when it’s us holding a new user’s hand while they build their first gallery. That’s exactly what the new guided onboarding flow provides. 👭 (Only new users will see this)

January 26th, 2023

Hit the road, Jack!

We fixed a bug where a non-functional download button occasionally made a guest appearance in vendor albums (without a rule enabled for it).

January 20th, 2023

Since you asked so nicely... we added a Payments link to the navigation menu that takes you directly to ShootProof Pay.

January 11th, 2023

You can now preview the front AND back of your clients' WHCC card orders before approving them and sending them off to the lab.
