A new image uploader is coming soon! Google is phasing out support for Java applications in their Chrome browser in the coming months. Since our current Auctiva Uploader is powered by a Java-based application, we had to build a new image uploader that will work across all browsers.
Today we’re excited to give you a sneak-peek at the new image uploader we’ve been working on! The uploader will allow you to select larger batches* of images to upload, drag-and-drop from desktop functionality, and, most importantly, no more need to constantly update Java/ActiveX to use it! The only requirement is that you have an up-to-date version of any modern browser (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer 10+ or Safari.)
You will still be able to upload your images to folders, set them to auto-delete, choose their size and rotate or flip, plus we’ve added the ability to rename your images before uploading so you can find them easily on your Manage Images page.
We value your feedback, so please take a moment to check out the new uploader here (must be logged in to your Auctiva account first) and post your comments and concerns on this thread.
You will find that the new uploader looks very similar to the current Auctiva Uploader but operates slightly differently:
1. Click the Browse (in Firefox or IE) or Choose Files (in Chrome) button to get started when the new uploader appears.
2. Select the image(s) to upload:
To upload a single image, just double click to add it to the uploader;
To upload multiple images: Ctrl + click to select multiple images or Ctrl + A to select All images and press the Open button to add them to the uploader.
3. Once all of your selected images are moved to the Auctiva Uploader, the Upload button will be clickable, and when pressed, the upload process will begin.
4. Successfully uploaded images will be displayed at the bottom portion of the uploader.
5. You can choose more images to upload, or click the Done button to close the uploader.
Leave any comments or general feedback on this thread, as well as any issues you may experience when using the new uploader.
* The amount of images you will be able to upload in each batch will depend on several factors, including your image sizes, internet connection speed and your own system performance.
