Please see attached document for more details, expectations. Ready to move...need this done as soon as possible.
We are an automotive photography company for car dealerships. We transfer images from the field (eye-fi card to iPhone to SmugMug / Zenfolio). We do use another app on the iphone to resize the images prior to saving to the camera roll. This reduces the size to 1024 prior to sending to save on data usage / speed up the push process.
We are looking to have our own iPhone / Android app that will resize / re-name images prior to saving them to the phone. OR, not save them to the camera roll but relay them to our site (similar to ShutterSnitch). OR, have the photographer upload directly to the site from their iPhone. The site would replace SmugMug and ZenFolio to increase speed and images loss.
Images do NOT need to be stored for long periods of times - only until the office can download them and upload them to our other software. We display each photographer's folder on a screen that refreshes every 10-15 seconds.
Multiple companies, departments will use and would like their photographers grouped together on a page. Each Photographers folder has a name and the most recent image uploaded (reverse order) so that we know when the upload is complete (image keeps changing as they are pushed to the site). Due to cellular connection, sometime image push gets interrupted and they need to be re-pushed. We would like identical file names to overwrite the previous - so that we do not have duplicates.
OK for preview to have square thumbnails - similar to what we currently have. Images are actually more rectangle so it is fine for the thumbnail preview to be centered on the image - cut off on the left and the right. Last image uploaded should be the thumbnail. Thumbnail will change on page refresh if images are still coming in.
Images will retain image name and be displayed under image. In case the upload does not complete, we can tell what the last image uploaded was. Do not allow duplicates - If an image name / number is already on the site, either skip or overwrite - do not rename / duplicate.
Allow Galleries to be custom sorted (default alphabetical). Responsive site. Allow to adjust to multiple screen sized (computer, large TV, Smart Phone, Tablet)
Edit: Batch edit on the website. Option to have auto batch or manual. Ability to perform additional edits on selected images.
Download ZIP folder of images. File names will be the original file name - retain EXIF data so images can be sorted easily and we can review date and time the image was taken.
The website will not necessarily be forward facing (public). However, we have no website building experience so would need to have a basic site created as well. We would like to be able to duplicate on sub-sites for other companies that may want to use our system in the future (keep their images different from ours - assign downloads to different teams).
