If you were having trouble uploading large images before, please try again! We just fixed an issue where large photos were getting blocked.

The new Snap.as is here! 📸

If you've been with us for a while, you'll want to migrate your photos and data to the new system. Just log in and click the "Update" button to do that!

You'll notice just a few minor differences between the old and new Snap.as right now. But we have a full roadmap we're building out now, and we can't wait to share those updates in the very near future!

An update on our upcoming @snap_as migration -- in short, no planned downtime, and you'll be able to kick off the update yourself starting tomorrow (Monday, October 26).

This means a much more seamless process for everyone, where your photos and Snap.as pages stay online, and you can choose to update your account only when you're ready.

We're finally leaving the "alpha" development stage! As part of this, we'll need to move everyone to our new infrastructure.

Previously, we mentioned this could involve some downtime. Instead, your photos and galleries will become read-only this coming Monday (Oct. 26), and then you'll simply log in and start the migration yourself.

This week we announced that @snap_as is getting ready to leave its "alpha" status: we.snap.as/leaving-alpha

Initially we thought this would involve some downtime for everyone. But instead of that, we'll probably let everyone simply migrate whenever they're ready.

That means everything on the "old" Snap.as will remain live, but to upload or modify anything, you'll first need to kick off a migration for your account.

We also need fully-functional photo hosting to support people migrating to the platform, which means we need to update @snap_as.

I wrote a bit about the kind of re-architecting this required in early September: m.abunchtell.com/@writeas_dev/

All fixed! You can upload photos to your albums again now.

Right now, there are some issues with adding photos to albums that we're investigating. Will report back when fixed.

Sorry for all the downtime -- we're actively working on restoring the web application.

Just fixed an issue with photos not showing up with the correct rotation (especially if they were taken on a smartphone). If your photos are still incorrectly rotated, try a hard refresh ✨

A few things coming this month: basic API docs (developers.snap.as) and standalone accounts, i.e. no need to have a Write.as subscription.

Now gallery navigation works completely without Javascript 🎉

The app still requires it while logged in, just for the nicer, snappy experience of an app that makes asynchronous requests and keeps photos loaded in memory. But anyone viewing your galleries no longer needs it enabled 👍
