We imagine there isn't a single ShutterCal'er out there who hasn't logged on today to realize the site is 100% redesigned. After so many long long nights of preparing this for all of you, we loved waking up this morning (afternoon really) to "Wow new ShutterCal!" tweets and Facebook exclamations. The heart of ShutterCal remains the same, but the architectural advancements to the site have opened us up to offer the very best features of moden web design. :)
ColorsWOW! These may take a bit to get used to (believe us, after 5 years of grey it was quite the change.) We listened and worked with many of the Digital and Print members to deliver a bright new pallet. Who's ready for spring?! ;)
NavigationThe core areas of ShutterCal's community remain the same. Calendar, Explore, Forum, Store - But they've been simplified into four defined sections. Right now these areas are exactly the same as they've always been, but in time will be evolved and upgraded to suit your personal connections. Friends photos will rise to the top, and ads will be replaced by stats, faves, and features that add a lot of fun and discovery to the community.
Responsive DesignThis is fancy designer speak for saying the entire sight adjusts and resizes to fit any screen or web browser perfectly. A perfect experience for each devise! You get more room and images on your computer, the perfect layout on your tablet, and a simplified easy to navigate and read version on ANY smart phone. (Can you see me - aka @DefaultArtist jumping for joy? Because I'm totally geeking out about this!)
Digital & Print MembershipThis is the lifeblood of ShutterCal. Everyone you see with a support badge is making this community possible. We've added a ton of exclusive features for members, and we're working with them (and you?) to offer much much more. So if you're not a digital or print member yet, come learn all about it. It's pretty awesome.
Enjoy & keep shooting!
