Export Contacts

At this time you can export your contacts for mailers, etc by using the Offline Reader. You can export in either CSV or XML. In the future you will be able to use StudioCloud CRM for doing targeted marketing mailer and email campaigns.

Online and In-Studio Gallery Updates

The new In-Studio gallery does the following:

1. Supports Ordered images when uploading
2. Redesigned publish page to get more space
3. You can now get a personalized url for your online gallery. Go to
the support section of the In-Studio gallery to select your url.
4. You can open an album by double clicking on it. StudioCloud albums have the extension .scq

The new Online Gallery does the following:
1. Has a favorites tab/folder (can order directly from favorites)
2. Has shopping cart tab/folder
3. Has an improved look and feel

The new Online Gallery is only available on the personalized url. The url will no longer be used. Instead, customers can either select a personalized url or they will get an auto generated url which will be their login name.

Let us know if you have any questions. Also if you do not currently subscribe to the Online Gallery but would like to try out the new version, let us know and we will set you up with another trial run.

ProSelect and Lightroom Integration

To help reduce your workload the Basic Suite now integrates with both ProSelect and Lightroom. You can now export your catalogs from Lightroom directly into the In-Studio Gallery or publish them online. Go to
to download and install the exporter.

You can also import your invoices from Proselect directly into the Basic Suite. You will find the option under the orders menu, Export Orders. At this time you will need to select one of the other programs until StudioCloud is an option. They all use the same export file.

Tutorials will be coming soon. Let us know if you have any questions. Stay tuned for many new features being released soon!

Gallery Update

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and fun New Year. Just a little update for the In-Studio and Online Gallery. Some of you may have occasionally experienced a problem when uploading albums. It would ask you to retry and then it would freeze and you would have to repost the album. This problem is now resolved so make sure you upgrade to the latest and greatest Gallery. It should ask you if you would like to update and install the newest version. A few people have received an error or misconfiguration when trying to update. If this happens, just uninstall your In-Studio Gallery (on a PC) or drag the application in the trash (Macs) and download it from the website at

Please let me know if you have any questions about getting updated or need help with anything else. Thanks!
