Automatically allow individual downloads for events
Instead of having to manually allow downloads for each category of an event, I'd love to see an option where you can check to automatically allow downloads for the whole event or for all categories. This gets very tedious to do!
Thank you for this suggestion, Tara! There is currently an option to allow downloads from ALL categories when you are defining download permissions for individual email addresses; will this work for what you are hoping for?
No, I do use that feature thought since that's currently my only option. I have a lot of clients who send the galleries to their family/bridal party/etc, who want to download the individual images for facebook and so I always have to go in enable the individual downloads within categories. I don't enjoy having to add all the email addresses and wish there was a checkbox or something to just automatically enable full event downloads for everyone as well as category/individual image downloads. It gets tedious to adjust all the categories for every event and it still doesn't have the full download functionality I would like. (with weddings I like having lots of categories to make it easier for my clients to find particular images)
In general, I'd love to see more flexibility for the download options. In the past I've used Shootproof and Pixieset, and personally, I like their download options much better. I've considered switching back since I am primarily a shoot and burn photographer, but I really like how instaproofs allows for customization of sales and emails attached to specific events.
Specifically, I'd really like there to be an option/checkbox to automatically enable downloads for the entire event or individual images without it being tied to a particular email address or category.
Also, it would be really nice for clients to be able to download their favorites images or individual categories on their end. I know I can go in and send an email for them if they send me an email request, but it would be much more user friendly for them to do it themselves. I love how shootproof allowed for the favorites folder download on the client's end.
Thanks for looking into this, I really appreciate it!
