Due to changing technologies, the Image Wizard could no longer be upgraded. In addition to the technology limitations, the previous wizard did not work optimally, causing slowness and other issues. Many of you requested updates to this vital tool. We heard these requests, and now a new image uploader has replaced the old wizard in TREND.
Easily Upload Photos from Any Device with a New, Responsive Image Uploader
Photos are an important part of a listing, and with phones and tablets being used more frequently, you may be taking listing photos on mobile devices.
Upload photos while working on your computer, tablet or smartphone with ease with the new image uploader. There will be no sacrifice in the look and feel of the uploader, even when on devices other than your computer, thanks to the responsive design.
Easily navigate to the new image uploader
With the addition of a new menu item, you are able to easily navigate to the image uploader through Add/Edit Photos. With just a few simple clicks—or taps—you can launch the new image uploader, choose the listing and get your work done. Snap photos on your smartphone and add them to your unpublished or published listing without having to boot up your computer.
Increased Image Resolution for Higher Quality Photos
As technology continues to advance, there is a need to accommodate higher quality photos. With the new uploader, you are able to upload larger photo files that will display with a higher resolution. This will allow you to better highlight the qualities of your listing.
Upload Images from Your Computer or the Cloud!
In an increasingly technological world, it is important to have options when it comes to uploading photos. Previously, photos could only be uploaded from your local computer or copied from an existing listing. Now, you can also upload photos from various cloud storage: MS One Drive, Google Drive and Dropbox.
Add or Remove Multiple Photos at Once
One of the most requested features for photos has been the ability to delete all photos from a listing, with fewer clicks. With the new image uploader, you can add and delete multiple photos at once. If you accidentally add the listing photos to the wrong listing or go back to the property and get better photos, simply select all the photos you want to delete and remove them all at once.
Edit Photos with Built-in Tools
The new upload tool also features editing capabilities, allowing you to adjust the photo right in TREND without having to use a separate photo editing program. Edit brightness and contrast. Crop and even rotate the image all while working in TREND. This will save you time and make it easier to add photos from any device.
Your Photos Uploaded with the old Wizard Were Not Affected
The addition of the new image uploader does
affect the way you upload, edit and delete listing, office and agent photos, as well as company logos. It did not
, however, negatively impact any photos you previously added to your listings.
The new image uploader is compatible with IE 10 or higher and the latest versions of Google Chrome or Firefox. If you are using a different browser, you will not be able to access the new image upload tool. Please update to a compatible browser to avoid disruption to your work.
