interesting. looking at it now.

the left bar for tumblr and three other buttons is a nusiance when trying to read text on the site. might be something just me and my ie8 is experiencing though?

File-naming must follow this rule:
[your photographer ID XXX]- [your feature/series number XXXXXX]. [image number in the feature/series XXX]. jpg
you should look into getting this automated as the service will probably be seen as too much of a hassle if it's like this.

also, can the metadata be edited while/after uploading? I don't have that data automated on my Olympus Trip ;)

Thank you very much for your reply.

The website is really designed for Firefox. It was successfully tested with Firefox 32 & 64bits, Palemoon, Waterfox, Google Chrome and Safari. As there are too many differences with IE, plus security problems with this browser I didn't plan to spend time to get Piikx.com working fine with IE.

Currently, I'm working to improve the homepage design and to develop automated personal website for photographers (for example I added an activity page: http://www.piikx.com/website.dev.php?mode=activity&id=NWM3MTgxYmRiOGI= )

If you have expectations about the way you would like to present your photographs, don't hesitate to propose ideas, designs etc..

Seeing as this represents a commercial venture for piikx.com, and therefore not really in-line with the nature of   filmwasters - please make enquiries/ discussion about the site off-forum.

@piikz.com - I emailed you last week, please can you acknowledge the email was recieved by replying?  Thanks :)
