Big Site Update

As a part of our ongoing efforts to improve everystockphoto.com, we made a big release today, detailed below.

Source Drop Down
In the past, you could select which sources to choose from a list in the advanced search (pictured below). This still works, but we have added a multi-select drop down beside the (always visible) sorting options, so that you can always see and modify the sources available for search, without having to open the advanced search.

Hint: if you are having relevance problems with your search, but get lots of results, try removing Flickr! Flickr is the most over-tagged / mis-tagged source that we have.

 

Sources Choice in Advanced Search Panel

 

New Sources Drop Down Feature

 

License Drop Down
We have added upgraded the license chooser in the same fashion as the source drop down. In the advanced search panel, you can choose specifically which  licenses to search. We have also grouped custom licenses (which are typically site-specific) into one choice.

Hint: To search a single custom license, you can target that source in particular with the source drop down.

Facebook Like & Tweet Buttons
We have added the Facebook and Tweet Buttons to the photo pages, as well as a Like button on our homepage! We hope you Like us!

New Blog
You’re looking at it! We are using wordpress now, and we will use this along with our twitter account (@evrystockphoto) to keep you up-to-date with everything going on.


Behind the Scenes
Our users don’t get to see the architecture changes we make, but you feel them! Today we rolled out a better re-caching scheme that will result in faster response times. We have also implemented a more sophisticated load balancing set-up, some DB and stats optimizations, and cool graphs.

We hope these new features are useful, please don’t hesitate to give us feedback! We have some excellent additional things in the works, stay tuned!
