Friday 8th 2008f August 2008 - ARTISTS & PHOTOGRAPHERS ….. We have just released the first phase of our new PRO-SHOP facility. Our new Pro-Shop facility is aimed at providing our clients with the ability to increase their revenue and artists (whether they are artists, graphic-artists or photographers) throughout the world with the ability to sell their artwork and imagery on-line. Our new Pro-Shop facility will have a wide range of items that can be individually designed/decorated using our forthcoming Design-Studio – giving buyers the opportunity to design their own T-Shirts, Hoodies, Sweatshirts, Bags, Button-Badges, Mugs, Coasters & Table Mats … in fact 100’s of different products. We will be releasing the 2nd phase (the actual ability for our clients to have multiple stores in their own, and their client’s, sites) within a few weeks. What we NEED NOW is ARTWORK. Before we release the FINAL phase, we want to get as much Artwork (from Artists all over the world) on the site as possible. Artists are now able to upload their own work, set their own prices, and manage their account ……. and it COSTS the Artist NOTHING. If you are an Artist please note: You are NOT selling the COPYRIGHT; any Artwork you upload will be purchased on a use-by-use basis. This mean that every time a buyer designs a T-Shirt (or any of the other products that will be stocked) using your Artwork, you will receive the amount of money you set as the Price – NO Commission, NO Charges, NO Fees. We believe that this really will be a FANTASTIC outlet for Artists and Photographers (because, don’t forget, photos look great printed on Coasters, Table Mats, Jigsaws, etc., as well) around the world to earn money from their creations. ARTISTS CAN REGISTER AND START USING THE SITE IMMEDIATELY. All you need to do is click on the Member’s Login tab at the top and create an account. There is a comprehensive Help Guide to assist you in uploading and managing your artwork. If you have any queries, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.

Wednesday 27th 2006f December 2006 - Pro-Darkroom Ltd is pleased to announce the release of Multi-Image (Combination Products) and Multi-Aperture Products - another unique service within the industry. This now gives our clients the ability to offer Package Sales (new products that are a combination of their existing products in the form of a Multi-Image product) and Multi-Aperture sales (where multiple images of, potentially, different sizes) are selected by the purchaser to fulfill a predefined layout (created by the photographer) - examples of this may be a specific style of School Mount where a number of images are included within the one mount through to templates of framed products where each frame includes multiple images within a predefined layout. These enhancements have been specifically developed to assist our clients in increasing their sales. For more details please contact either our Sales or Support departments. As usual, these unique enhancements to the system are no cost options available to all our clients.

Thursday 2nd 2006f November 2006 - The Major enhancements due for release by the end of October 2006 have been rescheduled for release about the 10th of October instead. We are releasing a number of significant enhancements over the next few weeks including the ability for our clients to set up discounts (by product or total checkout value), create packages (allow the purchaser to choose a set number of images as part of a package – packages are created by you, the client), create “multi-aperture” products, allow clients to upload mat-board and frame choices to enable the purchaser to select their images and choose a framing option, reports on visitors to each event, and a number of other enhancements designed to increase your revenue. In addition to all of these we are also looking to release a fantastic on-line facility that will allow our clients to create and release their own websites (based on over 300 templates) without the need to know anything about website design. As usual, all our clients will automatically have the option to use these extra facilities at no extra cost.

Monday 23rd 2006f October 2006 - Major enhancements due for release by the end of October 2006! We are releasing a number of significant enhancements over the next few weeks.

Monday 6th 2006f March 2006 - Sports Facility

We are pleased to announce a further upgrade to our Pro-Gallery service (our wedding style on-line galleries) aimed at giving Sports and Event Photographers the facility to optionally upload an Image Title and multiple Keywords against each image. As this then allows their customers to search for specific images, enhancing the ability for them to find the images they actually wish to purchase, we expect that our clients should benefit from increased sales.

As with the many other enhancements we’ve released this year, there is no extra charge for this facility.

Thursday 2nd 2006f March 2006 - We are pleased to announce the release of our new dynamic watermarking facility. Our clients now have the ability to set/unset the watermark for each of their events individually as well as change the wording, colour, opacity, size and angle of the watermark at will. This means that, should they wish, each event can be watermarked separately – once again providing more flexibility and more choice.

We are the first, and currently only, service provider to make this facility widely available. With the ability to generate unique passwords for each image, child or family, this system provides unparalleled security for on-line proofing. Along with various improvements to what was already one of the best systems available, Pro-Darkroom has again set the standard for others to follow.

Tuesday 17th 2006f January 2006 - Pro-Darkroom are set to release PRO-SCHOOLS within the next 3 weeks. All customers registered by the end of January will AUTOMATICALLY receive this facility as part of their existing service. This will provide photographers with the ability to provide schools with a secure site where each pupil will have a unique password to access their own image(s) along with their existing Gallery features.
