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 ✨

Snap.as boosted

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 👍

If you had problems creating a Snap.as account in the past 4 days, we've fixed the issue that was causing it. You can try again now and everything should work!

And now you can choose which albums show up on your profile by going to snap.as/me/albums, clicking "Visible" and changing it to "Hidden".

This way you can still create shareable photo albums that aren't showcased on your personal page.

Now you can get an overview of your albums on Snap.as, with the number of page views for each (the counter started today).

With this change, you can also delete albums!

Here it is! The official Snap.as browser extension. Just open it, drag a photo in, and the Markdown will be copied to your clipboard. Paste that in any Markdown-enabled editor (like @write_as) and there's your picture!

Get it for Chrome:
chrome.google.com/webstore/det

or Firefox:
addons.mozilla.org/addon/snap-

More about it on our blog: we.snap.as/uploading-from-anyw

Coming very soon: a browser extension! Will make uploading photos and adding them to your @write_as posts much quicker.

You'll now see a preview of your profile / album / photo when sharing a Snap.as link on Mastodon! 🙌

Tiny recent fix: now albums link back to your profile in the header, instead of the Snap.as landing page (e.g. snap.as/matt/rules)

Now you can change your album titles and add a Markdown-enabled description — and the same for your profile.

Just like this! snap.as/matt/holden

Now albums come with RSS! 📖

Just add /feed to the end of your album URL (e.g. snap.as/matt/doors/feed), or enter the plain album URL into an RSS reader and it should figure it out.

Now you can share a nice short link to individual, anonymous photos by going to snap.as/a/{photo-ID}, like this: snap.as/a/MLIug2d

for navigating your Snap.as photos — use the keyboard!

Left / right arrow keys: previous / next photo
Escape key: leave a photo, back to gallery

One minor change and a new feature tonight:

- Navigation bar now sticks around when you're logged in and navigating profiles and albums

- Users now have an RSS feed of their recent public photos! Right now, "public" means any photos added to an album; in the future, per-album settings will let you choose exactly shows up in the feed.

To access your feed, just add /recent.xml to your URL, e.g. snap.as/matt/recent.xml

What other feeds would you like to see?

Snap.as photo albums are live!

Just open the uploader and click the "Create photo album..." button to learn more, including what's coming next. If you'd like to unlock photo albums, it's just $10 -- a one-time purchase that will include all updates to this early feature.

I'm excited to launch this to everyone, and if you try it out I'd love to hear what you think so far!
