We currently have a website that runs Drupal / PHP.
It dynamically creates a website for our customers by masking the input from the various databases and building dynamic sites.
We need an ecommerce addon that handles price and things, and an efficient image handling system.
our site is [url removed, login to view]
Here's the short of it. ? We have a site based on Drupal, that dynamically creates websites for our customers. ? We want to up grade the functionality and add an improved image handling mechanism and an ecommerce solution.
Attached are page by page mockups of the addons I wish to have added to my existing dynamic customer portal (PHP/DRUPAL)
Slide one... Manage Photos page
Slide one... Manage Photos page
This is a centrally located place to view a list and edit/delete the existing folders.
Click> Create New Gallery (slide 2)
In the first box you can name your folder.
In the second box you upload your files.
In the thirds you set a password, leaving it black for a public folder
In the packages button, you can choose which packages are available for this folder ( a list generated later)
Then, a button to control the water mark
Last, a done button or a back button
The files list by showing a thumbnail, with links to remove. ? Leave all file names the same.
Click > Upload photos (Slide 3)
Here it is important that entire folders can be selected.
Also, files should be automatically cropped to no more than 600 x 600
A max upload should be set to 2 GB, this is for all combined folders for one user
Click done to go back.
Click > Watermark (slide 4)
simply adding text and choosing where it goes. ? I should be white at 70% opacity
click done to go back
On the control panel Click > Price list (slide 5)
The top part are user created pacakges (groupings of photos with one set price)
The bottom is a static list (rarely changes) with products and their base price.
Since the prices are fixed based on print costs, photographers can change the mark up by adding a percentage and clicking the button
Then all the prices are marked up together.
Some may be deselected, this prevents the cart from selling this item. ? (only needed to separate large prints that the photographer cant sell due to digital photo size)
Click > Edit Packages (slide 6)
Packages are listed in alphabetical order.
any item from the previous list can be added to a package. ? Then the price is set for the whole group of photos.
Each item will be associated later with a photo.
Packages could contain long text items, multiple of the same items, or even no items
Click done to back up.
Click > Manage website (slide 7)
This single page should control everything on the website.
The first section chooses the template and colors and stuff.
The second are the files for the intro page.
The intro photos interact with a CMS drive flash .swf front page.
The blog... well, a blog. ? Simplified to list the posts right there, edit to change, etc.
Manage Website page 2 (slide 8)
Edit Contact and About us pages...
Here is sample of the shopping cart feature (slide 9)
This similar layout should exist on all template pages
Selected photo should dominate the page
the listed thumbs are neatly on a scroll bar
The cart exists on the right toward the top...
first field: selecting a packages, clicking here gives a list of available pacakges, from the packages page
To add a photo to the cart, all you have to do is have the photo as the display, then click the size you want and the photo should be added to fill that space.
To delete a photo from the cart, double clicking should get rid of it or clearing the cart all together.
The box in the bottom right corner has all the sizes from the price list, with the marked up price.
To purchase a photo a la cart while shopping with a package, you put the photo you want in the browser, then find the size you want in the bottom corner, then double click it.
When your package is filled and you are done, the cart should process the credit card using our Linkpoint merchant account.
Finally, when a sale is made,? an email to the photographer and the recipient stating
1. Photographer name and info?
2. Package Purchased
3. amounts paid
4. image and products listed like this
"IMG_5658 ? ? 4x6 metallic"
"IMG_5588 ? ? 5x7 Matte"
5. total paid for tax and shipping
6. all Recipient info., add, state, phone number
And that's it.

mistype in project specs.. in regards to the Image handling system and the uploading function. Uploading an item should not crop an image, but resize it, keeping all proportions intact. Crop, bad. Resize, good. Thanks
