Are you taking full advantage of your PhotoBiz membership? We have some pretty amazing features that we think more people should use, so today I wanted to review a few features that you may have missed while setting up your PhotoBiz account.
Want to highlight each of your images with their own unique colors? Then the Color Shifting tool is for you. As each image in your galleries appear, you can set the color profile of your entire site to shift, and accentuate key elements in your images. With this you can give your site a different look and feel for each gallery or even change the colors within the gallery to highlight each image individually. Just look at this gallery in our Bordeaux sample and see how effective the color shifting can be! Notice how the background becomes purple when the image of the bouquet appears, and when the images of the flamingos running along the beach appears how the background becomes salmon. It really makes those images pop!
Image Transition Bank
Another great feature of your Flash portfolio and BizSite galleries is the ability to change the style of transitions between images. The way your images transition can completely change the feel of your website. There are so many choices you are bound to find one that fits your brand’s personality. In addition to changing the style of the image transitions, you can also control the speed. With a few clicks of the mouse you can go from a stately, smooth transition to a visually intense, rapid moving slide show and back again. Go ahead play around with it!
Page Specific SEO Sections
Everyone wants to be found in search results, right? Therefore, I highly suggest you take some time to get to know this section of your control panel. You may find this section labeled “Search Engine Optimization (SEO)” or simply “Search” depending on what product you are using, but it functions the same no matter the title. These sections provide you with a way to give search engine crawlers a more in depth view of your website! Despite all of their advances Google and Bing still cannot “read” an image so PhotoBiz gives you the ability to “tell” search engines exactly what is on your pages. Used in conjunction with the main Search Engines section of your site, page specific SEO helps give search engines a specific break down of your website. Want some help? Give us a call and set up an appointment to have one of our SEO specialists review your site for free.
