It’s been a while since I posted on the blog. Things have been busy around the stockvault camp since I launched Texturevault.net and I’ve been using all my free time moderating both Stockvault and Texturevault. Recently turning 5 years old, Stockvault has seen a tremendous growth in the past year and is doing quite well for it’s self.
I think now is the time to start preparation of taking the website up to the next level. I have high expectations and big plans for Stockvault in the free stock photo area. Yeah, there are new sites popping up all over the place, but we have a large and devoted user-base which I hope to see grow in the years to come.
Below is a list of things to come within the next 2-3 months. I’m already working hard on these features, hoping to be able to launch them before New Year.
New dedicated server
I’m currently setting up a brand new server dedicated to Stockvault.net – That means you will see massive speed increments, and a smoother all-around experience.
Completely new back-end / gallery system
Our current (old) gallery system has it’s limits, and is missing features that I think are vital for the site to grow. Therefor I have decided to migrate over to a new system which has a lot of exiting features for our members.
Among some of the new features are:
- We can finally accept vector and graphic files such as .ai, .eps, .psd and many more!
- One member system. You will have access to all the site features through one account.
- Upload your photos as collections, better batch uploads etc.
- Private messaging system, favorites, support forums, user news/blogs, just to name a few.
New layout design
All these system changes require a brand new look, right?
Stockvault.net will receive a nice makeover, where I will focus on simplicity and usability. And good looks of course!
