Reading your feedback

Ok, as you all probably noticed, today we rolled out new version of tookapic. We've been working on it for last two or three months. We wanted it to be an evolution, rather than revoltion.

To be honest, we mostly focused on the stock part of the site and made it much more buyer friendly. We really need to start selling more of those pics to keep the servers up and running. So the stock part is basically done from scratch. It looks much more inviting and makes buying easier.

As for the regular tookapic site, the part you all use we made some tweaks here and there. First of all, you need to know that updating a site like tookapic is pretty big challenge. We're surprised we didn't break a lot.

Of course, we made some changes that are not 100% good changes. We had to see them on a live site to acknowledge that these may not be the best changes. I've already listed all the fixes, and guys should be working on them now. The site should look fine and work with no issues by the end of tomorrow.

Oh, and please give it a week to get used to the new layout or new features. Most of us don't like changing something we know very good and are used to. Even if the changes are good.

Thanks for your patience and enjoy the new site.

    Massive change - initial confusion but so much info and so clearly laid out. Well done, seemed seamless to a novice like me. Sleep well tonight!

      Looks great to me. I love the additional thumbnails between the arrows that make it feel more like slideshow navigation. And with so many new members, it will help me remember people ("Oh, this is the guy that has been doing all those fancy artificial daylight shots"). I hope all the work and costs to keep tookapic going isn't becoming too much of a burden. You know how I worry.

        Great, this version is much better 😀 Much more information available at a glance. One thing - the "heart" icon is red when the pic is *not liked*. I think it's a bit confusing. I know you wanted to direct the attention to that button, but maybe there's another way, like putting it higher / on an overlay?

          And thank you for all your work!

            Thanks Paweł, looks good to me too. I especially like the previews below each photo, the information density on wide screens, and how it renders just as well on my iPad.

              Thanks. We've already fixed some of the issues with new version. I hope to get fixed most of them by the end of the day.

              I guess I'm getting used to all these incremental changes 😀 Who remembers what tookapic looked like a year ago? Hint: dropbox.com/s/wb4fxe5lg054pt8/...😉

                Paweł, is there a way to implement fast double-click to like photo? Instagram habits never change... 😀

                • Paweł Kadysz

                  no, but you can try pressing "L" on your keyboard to like a photo. "Z" to zoom it. And you can also use arrow keys to navigate to next or previous photo.
