Link Downloadable slideshows and other new features

We recently completed a release that includes a bunch of new features.

  • Show your slideshows offline, when no network connection is present
    Ever want to show a Phanfare slideshow at a party or outdoor event
    where no network connection is present? Now you can with our
    downloadable slideshows. You will notice that the new album and
    image options menu on the web includes a downloadable
    slideshow. This slideshow can be played offline and shows images
    edge-to-edge on your computer. Music and videos are retained, as are
    the Phanfare slideshow controls. Fow now, the slideshow can only be
    downloaded and played on a PC. Mac support is coming very soon.
  • New web album layout
    We introduced a new clean album layout that makes starting the
    slideshow easier to find, accommodates larger captions, and
    consolidates all of the features that were previously below the fold
    into one easier-to-see menu on the right. Here are more details on using on
    the new layout.For Phanfare purists who don’t want to lose the screen real estate
    to the new album option menu, you can opt to have album and image
    options appear in a context menu over the image
    for all of your
    albums.Regardless of whether you choose to hide the album option menu, this
    new album view includes a full screen image mode when you click on
    the image; repagination of the thumbs and auto-sizing of the image
    if you resize your browser; better looking next and previous
    buttons; and the ability to add HTML to your captions.
  • Bulk download whole albums from the web
    Often requested by all of you, you can now download the entire
    contents of an album, including original images and archival videos,
    as one very big zip file from the web. This option appears on your
    website in that album option menu. You can only download the whole
    album if downloading of originals is on for the album.The ability to download the whole album from the PC client is coming
  • MyPhanfare gets updated
    Several new improvements to MyPhanfare, including the ability to
    access your Phanfare address book and the ability to play videos
    from within MyPhanfare. As a reminder, MyPhanfare is meant as a lightweight control panel
    for your Phanfare account when using the Windows or Mac organizer is
    not convenient. You can login to MyPhanfare at
  • We repaired the Christmas lights
    Just in time to put up holiday photos and videos, we fixed the
    Christmas style. Previously the lights on the style were not working
    (no joke). They should display in most browsers now.For a quick summary, here are the release notes.
