New website to be launched soon

It’s been a hectic few weeks here at Visited Planet. So far I’ve uploaded about 30,000 images to the new database site hosted by Smugmug. You can see these images at http://visitedplanet.com/wordpress/

Here’s a taste of one of the galleries on Road Trains in Australia:

However soon the entire site will be moved simply to http://www.visitedplanet.com

In the meantime please check out the new site and feel free to send in any comments or suggestions.

Cheers!

New database via Smug Mug

I have just opened a  new account to host my images here – http://visitedplanet.smugmug.com/
This is under development and I’ll play around with it over the next few weeks.

In the meantime still use the database on http://www.visitedplanet.com/ and I’ll notify you of further changes.

This is an exciting time as I make some radical changes to the site that are much needed!

New site design for Visited Planet

About two weeks ago I visited my original webmaster, Ben Van Klinken, for tips on how to reorganize my site. So you may well see weird changes to the blogs and site as that’s being sorted out – someone has already pointed out they don’t like the blog (and I don’t either so it will be changed before long).

Anyway Ben wrote this incredible program for the database years ago that has functioned without a glitch for a whole decade. Even he’s been amazed by that.

Anyway the long and the short of it, is that within a month or so there should be a new look Visited Planet that is far less klunky and old fashioned. If you’ve been checking out the site for awhile–thanks–feel free to send in some ideas.

It will have much better social media, a far easier shopping cart and the possibility to order prints, books, cards etc directly off the site. The main issue will be finding time to do all this but I’m hoping to stop doing so much editing work and return to my first loves–writing and photography–hopefully pretty much full time like I used to within the next few months. With that should hopefully come all the products I used to do – cards, calendars, maybe even some exhibitions.

So please stay tuned til then…
