SELECTED FEATURES / OPTIMIZATIONS / INNOVATIONS:

NEW: GLOBAL NOTE AND GLOBAL COMMENT FOR CHANNELS
  • Via "Administration > Channels > Edit > Global Notices" administrators can create comments for individual channels which will be displayed in the channel overview for all users of the Access ID. There will be "Global Note" and "Global commet".
  • "Global comment" refers to a short, one-line information, such as "Price Category 1" or "Price per Medium X". It appears permanently next to the channel name of the relevant media supplier, visible for all users of this Access ID.
  • "Global note" can also be entered by the administrator per Access ID and channel. It is for a longer, multi-line information, e.g. to describe more complex contract structures or to provide information about the workflow for this media supplier. Global notes are accessible to all users of an Acces ID in the channel overview. There are two ways: Holding the mouse over a channel name displays the Global note as a tooltip (mousover effect). Alternatively, by right-clicking on a channel name the note can also be viewed after selecting "Channel notes".
  • Hint: The individual user can continue to create a private note for each channel by selecting "Channel notes". These notes will only be displayed to this user. An info icon that appears on the folder icon of channel name indicates that personal or global notes are available to a media supplier.

LIGHTBOX AND PROJECT FOLDER
  • Projects / Moving per Drag & Drop: In the project area from now on lightboxes can be dragged & dropped from one project folder into another.
  • Projects / Arranging and Sorting: The presentation in the project folder box has been reviewed. The order of the project folders and lightboxes can be changed by drag & drop and is saved automatically. The sorting options are available via the context menu (alphabetically or according to actuality).
  • Administration: The previous menu item "Manage Lightboxes" has been replaced by the two new menu items "Manage my Lightboxes" and "Manage all Lightboxes". Both are accessible via the "Lightbox" menu.
    "Manage my Lightboxes" allows users to manage their own lightboxes (created, shared).
    "Manage all Lightboxes" allows administrators to view and to manage non-private lightboxes from all users of the referring Access ID.
  • Performance: All server interactions regarding lightboxes and project folders have been optimized. This will improve performance, especially when dealing with many lightboxes
  • Notification Media Limit: If the maximum number of media pieces in a lightbox has been reached, this will be indicated by a new message (currently at 400).


MORE

  • Media Filter / Date: The calendar in the media filter now also includes calendar weeks.
  • Maximum view: When specific menu items are used (for example, user account and administration), for a better overview unnecessary elements of the page margins will be hidden and automatically reappear after leaving.
  • Display: User Interface has been improved for several dialogs (for example, Supplier Info and Shared Lightboxes).
    When using multiple monitors, the dialog now appears on the monitor from which the action was requested.
  • Error Messages: Some error messages now include more (technical) details in order to manage a faster analysis and resolution.



CORRECTIONS / BUGFIXES:

  • Search Result / Display Settings: Functionality has been established and is now also available when working with lightboxes or projects.
     
  • MacOS Select Date: Particularly for smaller screens, all control elements are fully displayed in the calendar selection.
  • MacOS 10.14 Mojave: Under Mojave some of the fonts were difficult to read. This has been corrected.
  • MacOS Hint Display: Some older versions of MacOS, in combination with certain graphics cards, may experience problems with list interactions (such as channels or lightboxes). Via "my-picturemaxx > Preferences > Display > Background within lists", alternating colors can be switched off, which avoids these effects.

  • Download / usage note: The dialogue was optimized for the case that a download of a media assett was not succesful.
  • Preferences Network connection “Indirect over picturemaxx”: A bug was fixed which occured when using this type of connection.

SELECTED FEATURES / OPTIMIZATIONS / INNOVATIONS:
 
SECURITY
  • IP Restrictions: A new feature allows you to create an IP-based restriction for all your Access IDs. Your users must then come from a verified IP or IP range in order to log in, ensuring no one outside your trusted network can use your Access IDs.
    Note: This is a custom add-on feature (not included in the standard my-picturemaxx). If you're interested in using IP Restrictions, please contact support@picturemaxx.com. We will discuss your requirements and send you an offer.
     
USABILITY
  • Send by Email: The user experience for entering email addresses now emulates standard mail applications. For example, when you select an email address from the dropdown menu, you can insert it using the "Tab" or "Enter" key.
  • Multiple Media Preview: When you select a few media files and open the preview gallery (right-click > Show Preview), you can now use your keyboard's arrow keys to navigate easily between the files.
  • Information Icons: The user experience for the various information icons has been unified. When you click an icon, the requested info appears and only disappears after a new mouse click. When you hover over an icon, the info appears immediately and disappears when you move the mouse away. This behavior applies to the media supplier "i" button, the price calculator icon, and the "Lightbox info" icon.
  • Windows / Screen Resolution: When you work in Windows with a higher screen resolution, the "text size scaling" setting now is in full effect.
     
CORRECTIONS / BUGFIXES:
  • Administration > Downloads Overview Export: Previously, in order to export an Excel file of downloads, you had to select an Access ID. You can now export without selecting an Access ID. (Show filters > Export).
  • Media Filter: Previously, if you entered a date manually, the date filtering was only in effect if you clicked the Media Filter "Start searching" button. With this fix, the date is always considered, regardless of how you start your search.
  • Access ID Selection: The dialog for selecting an Access ID was optimized.
  • Preview: The display of preview images has been improved.
  • Shopping Cart: The shopping cart label has been optimized so that the view is more stable and smooth when opening the shopping cart.
  • Search History: When switching between Access IDs, the entire available space is used for displaying the search history.

SELECTED FEATURES / OPTIMIZATIONS / INNOVATIONS:
USAGE NOTE
  • Usage note permissions (Administration > Permission groups > edit):
    The existing "Download without usage note" group permission was renamed "Download high resolution without a usage note."
  • A new permission was added — "Download thumbnails and previews without a usage note."
    Using the above, administrators can determine which sizes require usage notes and which don't.
  • Usage notes / downloads overview (Administration > Downloads overview):
    When you export download statistics, any internal-only usage-note fields (those which are configured not for relay to media suppliers) are now labeled "(internal)."


CORRECTIONS / BUGFIXES:

  • Retina displays: The display of icons in lightboxes was fixed/optimized.
  • Usage notes: The instant download dialog now forces the user to fill out any required usage note fields.

SELECTED FEATURES / OPTIMIZATIONS / INNOVATIONS:
DOWNLOAD
  • Download Use Note: Usage notes for download can be individually structured and, in particular, allow very meaningful download evaluations. Whilst so far only one field was provided for free input, now it's possible to create a field layout that is fitting to your individual demands and can  consist of several fields. The individual fields are displayed as separate columns in the download overview. In addition, it is possible to control which field information is to be transmitted to the media providers. The creation of the field layout requires administrative rights.
SEARCH RESULTS
  • Optimized search results: We optimized the my-picturemaxx search results area. Results now build more smoothly, particularly when the synchronous search setting is in use.
LIGHTBOX
  • Lightbox Drag & Drop: You can now drag and drop images from a lightbox or search results into an unopened lightbox in your "Projects" sidebar.
  • Lightbox Context Menu: The available options have been extended, so that the essential actions can now be used even faster.
  • Lightbox "i"info Button: Is now displayed in orange when an information text has been added to the lightbox.
  • Lightbox Current View: Scroll position is stored when switching between lightboxes; After changing back and forth, the lightbox is opened in the position as it was left.

OTHERS

  • Dock elements: Individual elements could have been previously unpacked from the application and placed anywhere (even on a second screen). Now it is also possible to connect several docked elements together. As a result, individual views can be arranged even more clearly and structured.
  • Proxy: We optimized the settings for proxy servers, especially those for MacOS.
  • Project Folder: When creating a project folder, the default name "Enter desired project name" is stored. Now the focus remains directly on the name, so that you can enter the desired name by direct keyboard input. An additional click on "context menu > Rename" is therefore unnecessary.


CORRECTIONS / BUGFIXES:

  • Search result: When switching between the view modes "Mixed view" and "By provider (unfolded)" sometimes not the entire window area was used to display the pictures.
  • Closing my-picturemaxx: A crash will no longer occur when the metadata widget is undocked.
  • Quick filter for date: When the media filter is closed, a quick filter is displayed. Within the Date Quick Filter, the "from" and "to" fields were sometimes not filled properly when a period was selected from the list.
  • Media Filter > Date Filter: The date selection window has been visually adjusted to better fit the different color schemes.

SELECTED FEATURES / OPTIMIZATIONS / INNOVATIONS:
MEDIA SEARCH

  • Series: Several series can now be marked in parallel from the search result and opened at the same time.
  • Advanced Search: New setting to automatically close the dialog when searching.
OTHERS
  • Lightboxes: The presentation has been technically revised so that the display of many lightboxes in a project folder and many media within a lightbox is built faster.
  • Notes: Notes on Places, lightboxes and media in the lightbox: Hyperlinks are now automatically recognized, highlighted and opened when text is entered in the external standard browser.
  • Files tab: The presentation has been improved, i.e. by alternating background color per line.

 
CORRECTIONS / BUGFIXES:

  • Media size: Correct display even if information in the metadata contains an incorrect value.
  • Lightbox: Last lightbox in a project folder can be easily deleted.
  • Email dispatch: A suitable error message will be displayed if the password is wrong.
