It was a first I’m sure for me to a group (and not just interns one on one) and it was a first for all that came.
Lots of pleased individuals when I left… I heard a lot of positive responses to what SmugMug has to offer.
My way of saying thanks to SmugMug for being great and dealing with me and all my massive amounts of pictures.
There was a suggestion by a couple people at the end of the evening that perhaps we could all write a comment if you were there. Everyone was passing around business cards and perhaps felt this was a good way.
I of course wouldn’t mind at all the comments… and feedback would be great, as well to show SmugMug how good a time we all had. haha
I have written posts in the past.
One on my yr (1TB) anniversary with the company. A review
Another to do a review and a wish list for their new coupons system

Trick I learned
You can send a link to someone that will pop open the Slideshow version (and a couple other styles too)
When in gallery go to Share-Links and there are lots of options there.
I discovered while teaching some easy customization how to get rid of the SmugMug bar on the top and make it pure JarvieDigital
I also discovered while teaching how to change the Rt-Click protect message. (Not that I use that function much)
We also learned lots about the new stats system that’s in Beta.
If you go to the old stats and change the URL to say “newstats” intead of “stats”
A better stats usage is something I’ve been looking for, it was fun to look at it for the first time with everyone else around.
My stats are way skewed because I use SmugMug to host everything for the blog – meaning it shows up with Tons of hits every day.
So personally I still don’t know what to make of it all… but the usage of analytics programs is great.
