Recently phTagr’s Explorer added two new view styles: Compact and Small. Both views can by set in the filter input with view:compact and view:small or by selecting the appropriate view in the View Filter menu.
The small view gives a great overview and is helpful for tagging and organize fresh imported images. The compact view hides the meta information of the images.
I updated the upload functionality in phtagr by using plupload.com. plupload has a nice and simple interface for different upload backends like HTML5, flash, or Silverlight.
The cool think: With plupload files are uploaded in chunks which a) removes the upload limit of the http server. Each chunk has a size about 1MB. b) it has nice progress events which are now shown including estimated end. c) for decent browsers you have drag’n’drop support.
It feels just smooth and make fun uploading huge HD movies to the photo web gallery. Please, do not hesitate to upgrade your gallery and test the new upload. If there are some nasty bugs, please dont be shy …
