We added some new holiday Card designs as well as some that include the option of foil overlays


Offline payments, Dismiss Next Up Cards, and New User Modal

November 10, 2022
Features
Bugfixes
Payments
Dashboard

Starting today, you will be able to accept offline payments from your clients in both booking proposals and client booking. You can also mark a job as paid offline. Make sure to turn offline payments on in your finance settings if you want to accept cash or checks!

New features:

  • Added client name to lead/job modal wizard so you know who you are working with
  • Tired of seeing some of your next-up cards? So were we. You are now able to dismiss them after taking action!
  • As a new user, it can be overwhelming to get started. We’ve added a new welcome modal to help people get started exploring Picsello.

Fixes:

  • Disabled share gallery buttons in the footer when there is a proofing album in the gallery; proofing galleries are shared in a different way!
  • Fixed photo count issue on client-facing galleries (we went back to math class!)

Edit Lead/Job Name & More

October 31, 2022
Bugfixes
Feature

Starting today, you can now edit your lead or job name. We will still add a default name upon creation, but you can now update it if you like by clicking the three dot menu!

Galleries and Orders:
  • We've added the ability to disable the gallery if there are orders in it versus only having delete as an option. We did this so you and your client don't lose your transaction history.
  • Removed the delete option from photos and albums if there is an order. Same reason as above!
  • Hovering over greeting card designs now shows the front and back view of the card.

Cards and Gallery Bug Hunting

Galleries
Bugfixes

We did a lot of bug hunting in the gallery for this round of updates!

Images:
  • Fixed watermarks not showing on all the photos.
  • Fixed logo watermark not uploading in some cases.
  • Fixed client-side gallery images being stacked oddly in certain instances.
Product Ordering:
  • Fixed gallery card pricing with no volume discount tag. Since cards come in packs, you're clients are getting a volume discount and we don't need to show them that!
  • Fixed Stripe checkout for gallery cards that were not loading in some instances.

Today we launched a few major features that will improve your experience with Picsello: Greeting Cards, Standalone Galleries, and Custom Payment Schedules!

Greeting cards are available for your clients to create and order directly from their gallery! (Super fun to create and mobile friendly!)

Greeting cards are a very popular way for your clients to use their photos–don’t let them go to another card printer! We make it easy for them to design and order cards directly from their gallery. Don’t forget photo cards are for more than just holidays–you can suggest that your clients use their photos to make birth announcements, save the dates, change of address, personal Valentines, or simply because they want to send a unique card to family and friends.  Again, we make it easy for clients to order their photo cards from your gallery.
