The past month has been particularly busy, with a good number of new early access users and lots of product work. A warm welcome to all you new users! We continue to make great strides in advancing CatalogIt towards our upcoming commercial launch and would like to tell you a bit about what’s new.
We’ve recently added basic photo editing features. Many of you have requested this functionality and we're delighted to be bringing it to you. Now, when you select or take a photo to create a new Entry, or edit an existing Entry, you’ll be able to rotate, crop, and set the portion of the photo that appears on your thumbnail screen. Many of you no doubt have existing photos you'd like to edit. To edit an existing photo, simply select the Entry, go into edit mode, click on the photo, then click the pencil icon in the blue toolbar that appears (as in the example below). The Edit Photo screen will open from which you can rotate, crop, zoom, move and recenter the image as you wish.
CatalogIt will continue to store the original, unedited image for you to re-edit or download later. When you edit a photo, CatalogIt creates a derivative of your original uploaded photo and NEVER modifies the original - your original photo is safely stored and unmodified.
Make sure you’re using the most recent version of CatalogIt. If you don’t see the new photo editing features, and if you are using the app in a Web browser, close and re-open the app to refresh. If you’re using the app on an iPhone or iPad, visit the App Store to update to the latest version (0.22.0).
The Concord Historical Society has a truly impressive and dedicated staff of volunteers. In addition to maintaining the historic Galindo Home, built in 1856 by descendants of some of the earliest Spanish settlers in Northern California, the Concord Historical Society has managed to take over and MOVE an entire historic Masonic Hall. A portion of the Hall is now an event center while the rest is gradually transforming into a new museum. On December 8 and 9, they’ll be hosting their annual Gingerbread House Boutique, featuring a variety of arts and crafts, delectable treats, as well as Christmas at the Galindo Home- see this magnificent beauty decked-out for the holidays.
