Pixagogo has been storing all your original pictures safely for years now. This means that we need a lot of storage.
Even though energycosts have kept rising, we chose to keep our prices the same over the last years.
Now we have come to a point where we have to change our prices to meet with our higher costs on infrastructure.
Our apologies for any inconvenience.

New database servers
This morning we have installed our new database servers. To make sure all your data is stored securely we stopped all our services to do this. Please excuse us for the small maintenance window and we hope you enjoy our improved services.

Pixagogo performance gain
Last weekend Pixagogo underwent a performance boost to give all our members a better user experience. Some of our most loyal users pointed out that they were experiencing some delays when uploading photos. This should be fixed now and we wish to thank all of them for their patience.

Telenet acquires Pixagogo
It's official... Telenet has acquired Pixagogo. Telenet is the largest provider of broadband cable services in Belgium, its business comprises the provision of basic and premium cable television, high speed internet and telephony services, primarily to residential customers in Flanders.
This acquisition will allow Pixagogo to reach a larger audience and we hope to improve the Pixagogo service and add new features such as video sharing in the very near future.

Please be aware that this is new to us... we will be making changes over the next weeks and months and you probably shouldn't build mission criticial applications with the Pixagogo API.
The first application is a Pixagogo Screen Saver. This application allows you to turn one of your albums in to a slide show screen saver. You can download the Screen Saver from the tools page and edit the screen saver settings from the Windows Display Property window (right click on your desktop, select properties and click on the screen saver tab).
Photo Maps released
After test driving the Photo Maps service, we've integrated our geotagging service in the standard Pixagogo offering: on the album lay-out page you can select your photos and add geo coordinates to your photos.
It's really simple to create a Photo Map:
- Select an album;
- Go to the album lay-out page of that album;
- Select the photos you want to geo label;
- Add geo coordinates (you can find them by clicking on the "find on map" button, browse to the location and hit the "use coordinates" button);
- Click on the "view Photo map link".
A small globe will appear under the photos that you've labeled with geo coordinates.
You can turn every Pixagogo photo album in to a Photo Map: you just have to add "maps/" to the album link:
This (http://www.pixagogo.com/2110365858) is a Photo Album of a "Paris Shopping trip". You want to see a few photos on a photo map of Paris? Go to this Photo Map (or to this link http://www.pixagogo.com/maps/2110365858).
Click on one of the photos to browse the geo labeled photos on the map.

Your albums on your website
Replace the album pin with the unique number of one of your albums.
This code will display your album in your website with your header and your stylesheets.
You can customize (background, width, description, title, ...) your album in the Pixagogo interface. All these settings (1 exception: paging) will come through: so if you want a 500 pixels wide album with a black background: simply change your album layout and settings in your Pixagogo studio and voila! your website will display your photos 500 pixels wide and with a black background under your websites headers, footers and sidebars.
Please note that this is a test service subject to improvements and changes. We will officially release this new feature during the next weeks.
You can find an example here.
Your feedback is much appreciated on the Pixagogo user forum.
