Hotfolder 1.8 adds Gallery Uploader

Breeze Hotfolder Prints 1.8 (released on Monday) includes a new Gallery Uploader, and the ability to add logos to prints.

What is Breeze Hotfolder?

Hotfolder is a  suite of invaluable tools for event photographers and photo booth operators. From tools that help format images, to specialist hashtag monitors and image uploaders, each tool is designed to save the user time and stress when it comes to managing a large batch of images.

Hotfolder monitors a folder for incoming images (JPEG and PNG), then automatically formats them for printing, saving and/or emailing. Images can be sourced from a tethered camera, a cloud drive (Dropbox etc), shared network folder or a folder on your PC.

Add logos to print layouts

Logos provide a quick and easy way to add graphics to prints without using an image editor such as Photoshop. PNG and JPEG logos can be imported,  moved,  resized and rotated just like photos in the print layout.

For a quick video tour of the Print Layout Editor look here.  NB To find Hotfolder’s Print layout editor start the program, go to Preferences, then select Custom Layout Settings.

New tokens

  • {dateLess8h} prints today’s date less 8 hours
  • {captionNoURL} is used for extracting Twitter captions without the trailing URL

Why ‘date less 8 hours’? Use this token when events run past midnight, but you don’t want the images created after midnight to be stored under a different date. 

SmugMug Uploader improvements

  • Improved handling of login access tokens 
  • New option to save settings to file

Try for yourself

Hotfolder Prints 1.8 is a free upgrade for all registered users who purchased Hotfolder after 9th September 2018. Customers with older licenses need to buy an upgrade license to use this release.
