Customer Upload

Hey guys I'm sure this has been asked but I am wondering if anyone has figured out a clean way for customers to upload photos to Sytist without going to an ftp program. I have actually seen many photo sites where there is a simple upload button that the customer clicks and can select the folder or files to upload.

Any chance anyone can point me in the right direction?

There is not an option for customers to upload their own photos. I may add it at some point, but don't know for sure if or when.

Thanks Tim. I have a workable workaround by sending the customer a link after the order is made that goes directly to the new Dropbox requests page. (They don't have to have or install Dropbox to use it). I'm going to try and set up my order confirmation email to have that link directly listed for them.

Love Sytist. Thanks for all you are doing.

Just in case anyone wondered how this can be done I came up with a way to kinda do it. I created a folder in our dropbox using the new "Request" feature and copied the link. In the default email customers get when they place an order I added the code with a "Upload your photos here" text. When the customer gets the order confirmation email there are the default values (order#, link to order, etc. but also the "Upload Your Photos Here" link. When they click on that link it takes them directly to the upload page. They upload the photos and that's it. The site will let them know that your company will be notified of the upload. On my end I get the email from dropbox with a link. I click on the link and there are the photos. Simple.

Was anything ever done with this? I was just searching the archives to see if it was possible to do this with sytist and saw this post .

Hi Tim

Do you have plans for this in the future? I'm looking for a solution where other photographers (5-10) can upload their photos to my website, and where they can admin their own photo's/(sub)galleries. Or maybe there's a workaround for this? It's not possible to create an admin for a category or gallery?

I don't have need of this very often, but I found I needed a feature like this last week.

Sytist makes me look slick and way more professional than I probably really am, sending clients off to dropbox exposes the fact I'm not really this slick!

I found this searching for this feature. Another +1 for this request.
