Every time...

Yes, every time I start one thing, like providing new natural history content (sloth is next) I get distracted by another! But I hope it's worthwhile. The next project is to incorporate a payment system to use photos. I get lots of requests to use photos, and while a few kinds of personal usage are free, I do charge for other uses. It's a bit cumbersome to do all this just through emails. Sooo, I am getting systematic, baby. Yeah! I am incorporating a photo gallery function into the website. It looks great, and will be really easy to use. I have just complete running a beta version, which has all the functions but testing with only a few photos. The tough part will be to rescan all my photos to have a consistent resolution and photo naming protocol. That's what takes the time is having to go back to my originals and rescan to specifications. So watch this space! If you want to see a the beta version go here: Let me know what you think!

It's here!

Yes! As promised here and elsewhere (believe me!) the upgraded news delivery system is finally done! Well, I shouldn't say done, as it is constantly being updated. A labor of love it is—day after day, trawling the news to find articles, blogs, features and other delights and snippets to keep you informed and up-to-date about our favorite places. So, dear reader, please go visit the new pages, and let me know what you think!

New news soon!

Okay, okay, it's been ages since I penned anything here. But I have been busy! Working on developing content for the site (or would you rather I spent time writing this blog!) The big new development is a new delivery system for news related to Jungle Photos topics. No, not news about the website! You can get that here or through the Jungle Photos User's Group. The new news system is a CMS portal built with Mambo, a free software plug-in. It provides lots of cool features that will make it easier for users to get to relevant news (and easier for me to update it!). It should be online in the next few days. Watch this space for the launch announcement!
