This has been quite a year for CatalogIt- we’ve grown substantially, with nearly six times as many accounts now than we had at the beginning of the year! There was also a tremendous amount of new and improved functionality added to CatalogIt over the course of 2019. We expect to grow even more dramatically in 2020, including increasing our engineering staff with an eye towards an array of product enhancements. We especially want to thank all of you- you’ve helped us get where we are now and your continued support will help to propel us forward. Here’s to a great 2020 for us all!
In our last newsletter we announced that you can now upload TIFF and RAW images to CatalogIt- the list of image types we support is extensive: JPG, TIFF, RAW, PNG, GIF, HEIF, WEBP, and more. CatalogIt safely stores those image files for you in their original format and size-- completely unaltered. We’ve also done some substantial work on the backend to allow for more efficient processing and soon we’ll be adding support for video and audio files. Now, when you upload an image file, it is routed by Amazon Web Services (AWS) through the closest AWS data center, anywhere in the world. This serves to significantly reduce the time it takes to upload an image.
Tags can be really helpful in managing your collections. You can think of them as placing “post-it” notes on your Entries. They are Profile fields so it is easy to see all of the items that you’ve tagged with any particular Tag. I’ve created Tags such as, “Needs Photos” and “Needs Dimensions,” which I find particularly handy.
The CatalogIt Support Wiki has a short video on Creating Tags- check it out!
Once you've created your Tags in Profiles they will be available to you when you are creating or editing an Entry- just click on “tags…” in the upper right corner to access them:
When you are viewing the Entry, you can click on the Tag (like any other Profile) to see all of the other Entries that share it. When I’ve got my photo tent set up I’ll open the “Needs Photos” Tag and fill in some of my missing photos!
Historic Whitesbog Village near Browns Mills, New Jersey, is truly an amazing place. It includes a historic company town with 25 historic buildings and 3,000 acres of producing blueberry fields, cranberry bogs, pine barrens and reservoirs. It is home to the first cultivated blueberry! Stop in and visit the Cranberry and Blueberry Museum, hike one of the many trails through the farms or forest, and stop at the General Store for handcrafted items and artisan foods. The grounds are open 365 days a year!
