Well my new photo site is progressing nicely. I’ve settled on the SmugMug theme called “Nyx” with a side menu and photo collage. My custom domain is now active (simonsphotosite.com) and all of my Flickr photos have been migrated across.
I was excited to discover a couple of hidden SmugMug features too;
- Smart Galleries – these galleries are populated by rules (such as searching for tags and excluding others).
- Keyword Page – displays a cloud of your keywords for easy searching and browsing.
Now I just have sone fine tuning to do, sorting out all the imports from Flickr, customising folders and galleries, fixing any problems I come across and sorting out a few gremlins (like duplicate pictures).
Watch This Space!
