We have added some great new content to the Inspire page of our website! In our ongoing quest to make running your photography business easier, H&H has released a new initiative to help make sure photographers stay current with their websites. Using our video tutorials, you should be able to have a professional WordPress website ready to show the public in less than an hour!
H&H has also created four unique (and free!) WordPress themes developed specifically with photographers in mind. The themes are minimalist and geared toward displaying a portfolio, letting your photography shine. Each theme is extremely simple to install and use, and did we mention free?
Keep an eye out for new, photography-specific WordPress plugins from H&H in the future! Check all of our WordPress tutorials for photographers in the INSPIRE section of our website, or get more info from our blog post announcing our WordPress themes for photographers and let us know in the comments if you have any suggestions.
We have made a change to our press printed posters. The pearl paper has changed from from 100# cover to 110# cover, and the satin has changed from 80# cover to 110# cover. This results in an improved look and feel to all of our posters.
eZevent 8.0 is the latest and most feature-filled version of eZevent software in a long time. We hope you’ll take a minute to read through these features.
Automated class composites – Use studio-designed backgrounds and avoid per class setup charges when class composite designs fit this predefined layout
New Project Setup & Reports option: “Subject images and data” report assists the studio in visually verifying subject data.
HiRes Preload feature provides:
One upload of High Res images from a project. Once images are preloaded to H&H from an eZevent project, orders are only a zipped up text file for faster uploading of orders
Retouching is archived and used on all following orders – including Yearbook CDs
Green Screen – Simplifies green screen order management to take advantage of paying for knock out once but using those knock out PNG images on following orders. Following orders that share images with an order being knocked out are automatically held at order entry and released when the knocked out PNG images are made available after assembly so you can send multiple orders in at once
