Take advantage of a limited special offer that could net you five times the normal DPNow photo gallery storage space during November only!
We haven't really publicised our new free photo gallery system that much since it was launched just less than two months ago. Based on the leading PhotoPost photo gallery system (currently version 5.5) and integrated with our new discussion forum, the new service has proved popular with nearly 500 photos uploaded and several tens of thousands of views recorded to date.
Until a few days ago the storage limit for gallery photos on our server was 4MB per user account, but in response to demand we have now increased this to 10MB, enough to store and show 60-70 screen resolution pictures. But for this month only you can claim 50MB storage for life - enough to store over 300 pictures. 50MB accounts are instantly granted to all existing registered members and we have over 300 50MB accounts waiting to be claimed by the end of November, after which the standard limit for new accounts reverts back to 10MB.
What do you have to do to claim your special 50MB account? You simply have to register on the discussion forum. It's a much easier and simpler process than the old discussion forum. As the gallery is integrated with the forum, as soon as you are registered with the forum you can start uploading photos to your gallery space.
Features you can make use of on the DPNow photo gallery system include:
Use the space for convenient and free storage of photos for inclusion in forum posts.
Create subject-specific albums, including password-protected private albums.
Upload several images in batches using multi-image Zip files.
Display EXIF shooting information (camera settings, etc.) if preserved in your image.
Be eligible for selection in a forthcoming photo of the day feature we'll be launching soon.
Rate each other's images.
Images can be titled and annotated.
Key word search images across the galleries.
And there is much more to discover - try it and see.
Don't forget our thriving new discussion forum
Register now, it's free and let's you join in the discussions
Based on one of the most powerful discussion forum platforms, vBulletin (currently version 3.6.2), the new DPNow discussion forum is better than ever. Join our members from the UK, France, Iceland, Canada, USA, Australia, Germany, Japan, Italy, etc. in friendly but lively discussions about photography as well as non-photo topics. The DPNow forum is moderated and we do our best to keep it spam-free.
At the heart of the forum is a vibrant photo critique section. No matter how good or bad you think you are, post your pictures and you'll be pleasantly surprised by the level of useful feedback you could receive. And of course your feedback is most welcome to others in return.
We also have a small ads section; draw attention to that eBay item you've got running, for example. The DPNow forum is a great place to help solve your photography problems or to share your expertise with others.
All recently published DPNow news and feature articles are automatically highlighted via RSS on the forum too, making it a convenient place to keep up to date. The DPNow forum, itself, has its own RSS feed if you prefer to monitor new forum posts this way.
Advanced DPNow forum facilities include:
Edit your messages even after they have been posted (time limited) to correct typos and other mistakes.
