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.
Do you have a website, personal web page or a blog? Why not add your Pixagogo photos to your website!
Adding your Pixagogo photos to your website is as easy as counting to 3:
1) Go to the album lay-out page;
2) Copy the Sticker code;
3) Paste the Sticker code in your website's html.
You can easily customize your Sticker for horizontal or vertical use: simply change the rows and columns to easily fit your website's design (Don't forget to change the frame sizes).

photo labeling made easy
We changed / improved the flow for labeling (a.k.a tagging) your photos.
Select your photos in the timeline or on the album lay-out page and add labels by typing your comma seperated labels in the label box.
Your newly added labels will appear in the "Your Labels" Cloud on the right side of your screen. You can click on one of your labels to show all photos with that particular label.
Suggestions for improvements are always welcomed on the Pixagogo support forum.
Photo Maps: Google Earth Feed
With this label feed, Google Earth users can view the photos of that particular label in Google Earth.
Once you've downloaded and installed the Google Earth application, you only have to click on the little Google Earth button and... Google Earth will start-up and it will zoom in on the photos.
Coming soon... KML feeds on every Photo Map.

RSS feeds update
We upgraded our RSS feeds to full fledged PhotoFeeds!
A PhotoFeed is a RSS 2.0 feed with image enclosures. A photofeed provides a standard and easy way to reference a list of images with a title, a date and a description. It can be used as the input of any program/service that works with images.
If you wonder how to use PhotoFeeds...
Coming soon... Photo Maps
Pixagogo Photo Maps will be launched very soon! I wish I could start sharing some screenshots... Unfortunately, you 'll have to wait for the the official beta release next week.
I can tell you this: Pixagogo Photo Maps will be a cool mixture of Pixagogo Photos, Google Maps and... YOUR WEBSITE or WEBLOG! And the best part is: it will be absolutely free... you don't even have to register.
Creating a map is be really simple:
- choose a title and description,
- upload photos,
- add labels and geocodes (don't worry Pixagogo will even provide the tools),
- create and start sharing your Photo Map
Pixagogo users will be able to create a Photo Map from their existing albums without having to upload their photos!
We will even provide ready made html code: simply copy-paste the code into your web page or blog.
The digital photos in this gallery are organized according to the labels (tags or keywords) that the Pixagogo users have applied to their photos. You can check out the most popular labels or look for a particular label by clicking on the letters. The size of the label name will get bigger as more users apply the label to their photos.
