Digital Photographer launches a bigger, better, faster website to meet the needs of modern photographers

Digital Photographer is celebrating the exciting new launch of its website: www.dphotographer.co.uk. The brand new design and functionality promises to bring users a faster, easier and more interactive experience, enabling them to showcase their photographs to the world.

The gallery-based website is super speedy thanks to an all-new image database developed in-house at Imagine Publishing. Users can now make the most of being able to upload bigger images up to 2,592 x 2,952 in size. All users need to do is register to create their own free gallery, which is then viewed on the website via the Galleria photo browser.

Mat Toor, head of Digital at Imagine Publishing said, “With over two million lines of code and one million pieces of metadata, the new Digital Photographer site is bigger, better and faster than it was before. It’s practically bionic!’”

Visitors to the site can make the most of the slideshow and full-screen viewing options and share their images with the world via the instant Facebook and Twitter update buttons. DPhotographer.co.uk also collects and displays metadata, including image thumbnails, so that images can be shared across social network sites like Facebook, Twitter and Flickr in an instant.

DPhotographer.co.uk goes live with over 170,000 images in its database uploaded from over 15,900 personal galleries. A newly enhanced search function enables users looking for photographic inspiration to find tagged images in no time, and all photographs are also categorised according to popular genres.

The tutorial section has grown too, with an abundance of handy Photoshop tips and tricks to help edit images like a pro. It’s constantly updated so visitors can learn something new every week.

Digital Photographer editor, Rosie Tanner said, “This new website is a huge step forward in the way fans of Digital Photographer can share their photographs with their social network of friends. There’s a real buzz about this new site already and I can’t wait to see how it grows from here.”

Debbi Allen, editor in chief, said, “The whole team has been working hard over the past few months to create a website that users will love. From bigger images and full-screen slideshows to instant social networking links, your DPhotographer.co.uk profile page can now be the central hub for all your online photo activity. Beware though – this new website is highly addictive!”
