Updating mobileme gallery
You can elect to show the title of each photo, allow your visitors to download your images or upload their own, and even allow photos to be uploaded by other computer owners using an e-mail client or a web browser!
By default, any visitor to your Mobile Me website can see your gallery.
Chambers i Photo ’11 includes a feature called Mobile Me Gallery that does for images what podcasting does for audio: You can share your photos with friends, family, business clients, and anyone else with an Internet connection!
(Your adoring public doesn’t even require a Mac Book or other Mac; it can use That Other Kind of Computer, or one of those crazy Linux systems.) i Photo automatically uploads the selected images and leads you through the process of creating a new web page to proudly display your photos.
The goal in one sentence is to create an exact replica, feature-for-feature match of the Mobile Me Gallery using 100% Silverlight.
This project began as a way to experiment with and learn the new features in Silverlight 3.
All services were being gradually transitioned and replaced by i Cloud and the service ceased as of June 30, 2012, with transfers to i Cloud available until July 31, 2012.
Again, mobile push updates are all over the air rather than requiring an i Tunes sync via the the i Phone or i Pod dock.
Friends and family can scrub albums for previews, view home movies online in better than DVD quality, download printable versions of photos, upload their own shots into an album, or view Gallery albums using Apple TV (just as they can right now with the low profile .
Check out the blog post that introduced the idea: Recreating the Mobile Me Gallery in Silverlight 3 In addition to learning the features in Silverlight 3, I also wanted to experiment with using Expression Blend 3 as a compliment to Silverlight development.
Therefore, all graphics (rss button, image slider, etc) and toolbar items were created/styled using Expression Blend 3.
Improvements cited in the report include improved localization for all of its web apps and better "membername suggestions when attempting to sign up for a membername that is already taken." In the accounts section, the Mobile Me update addresses accuracy of data transfer details, fixes an inaccuracy in reporting used storage on Group i Disks, improves the storage allocation menu on family pack sub accounts, and corrects account logout so that it properly logs the user out of the entire Mobile Me session.
Under Mail, the update fixes a problem with performing a 'reply all,' fixes some keyboard shortcuts that weren't working properly within the browser, improves performance when using Internet Explorer 7, improves the performance of junk mail filtering and on initial login, fixes a problem with adding contacts within Mail, and it now displays a loading graphic as an email loads rather than just presenting a blank page.
