Welcome to the launch of our new site, built with the power of Pro Photo 6!
I’ll be going over a few changes and a small road map we have in place so you can see where we’re headed over the next few weeks.
We’ve updated the post and just decided to make our roadmap a page instead. Check it out here – https://www.lalunecreative.com/roadmap we’ll be updating it regularly.
I know a few of you are going to ask where our Brand Kits are since you’re not seeing them in the store. We’ll be discontinuing anything but web design from this point on until we feel comfortable with doing those again. That means, brand kits, header templates, and any other non web design or websites, we’ve discontinued for the time being. There’s a huge reason for that, but one we can’t really talk about until after we make some new exciting announcements about where we’re headed! Our 12 month road map is much MUCH larger than what we’re showing here. We’re super excited to get moving in 2016!
We’re working on getting our most popular designs brought into 6 right away. As you can see we plan to have most of our current designs done by the end of March and then we’ll start doing new designs starting in April. I know some of you were looking for something new, but in fact some of our older designs we’re carrying over, probably won’t actually look the same and even some of our newer designs from 2015 are getting ProPhoto 6 upgrades so those are going to be a bit different as well. Case in point, designs like Shepard, Urban, Express, and Skyfall were all built on legacy ProPhoto before even 5 came out. Those designs are all due for a major redesign. So for 6 they’ll look completely different or be retired. Our hope is to have them ALL finished by April. That’s a tough goal to make, but we believe we’re going to make it. If for some reason we can’t, then we’ll be more open and transparent about what’s going on with releases from here on out.
USER REGISTRATION / FREE UPDATES!
We have a brand new store with user registration! So why do we require user registration now? For the FREE updates of course! Everyone loves FREE don’t they? So our plans from here on out are to offer all clients who purchase designs through us, get updates for their design for free.
We’re not allowing cross platform updates however, so you can’t have a prophoto 5 design and get the equivalent of the prophoto 6 design. ProPhoto 5 updates are for 5 and ProPhoto 6 updates are for 6. So you’ll have to purchase the design you want for the platform you want to get the updates for it.
At this point it isn’t likely we’ll have too many P5 updates, but if you’ve purchased one of our designs before we’ll have a system in place to notify you through an email list if there’s an update. Just remember that any update we do to the designs break any customizations you make, so you’ll have to do the customizations over again if you choose to get the updated version. When we have an update we’ll detail the changes and process to get your update right here on the blog.
If you’ve purchased a design through the ProPhoto store we’re talking with them to allow you to download your original file at any time, from the original purchased email you receive. Thus would allow you to download the newest version. Until they get that implemented however, I believe they want you to send in a request through the contact form for the time being. Again that process will be detailed on the blog once there’s an update for the design.
So that’s one long winded post! That’s it for now, we’ll have some more updates incoming! Keep an eye out soon!
