  SportPics - add images

fotoshow pro makes populating your database as easy and efficient as possible.

The fotoshow pro administration tool kit allows for batch processing of multiple entries -- and you can apply a saved set of attributes to all the images in a batch at once.

Image attributes includes date, caption, photographer, keywords, subject, format, release status, etc. The tool kit dynamically generates a series of drop-down menus for each category, based on you library structure. SportPics, for example, uses a sport -> team -> season -> player hierarchy. Once keywords and other relevant information is added to a particular image, this set of information can be applied to the batch of images, and saved for use on future sets of images. Using these two tools together - the Batch List and Batch Attributes - allows you to quickly build your image library within a cohesive structure.

  The fotoshow pro custom development process


The first stage of custom development of a fotoshow pro client site and administration applications is to create a site flow. This diagram graphically represents every page of the application, and shows the different navigation paths and indicates the type of content and functionality of each page. This is how the structure of the applications are defined. It is also where the different types of areas of the applications are defined, as well as defining at a high level how the applications will function.

Wireframes - an interactive prototype:

This is where we design and build all the functionality for every page on both the client side and the administration side. Once this interactive prototype is constructed, it can then be subjected to usability testing. During this process the functionality and interface design can be modified and refined to make your application as user-friendly as possible.
