New ZenSync2 released!

This is the release of the brand new ZenSync2, a utility that transfers images from your local image library to your Zenfolio galleries.

In May 2009 I searched for a new way to transfer my images to my online galleries on Zenfolio. Finaly I found ZenSync and was really impressed how fluently it fits into my workflow.

During heavily uploading images I had some ideas to improve the tool even further and started coding. After some nights of coding and a lots of coffee the basis for ZenSync2 was finished.

ZenSync2 is based on the idea of Dan Richardson, who developed the first version of ZenSync. I’m in heavy contact with Dan to be sure to understand the basic ideas of the tool and we have exchanged further ideas about improvements.

Now ZenSync2 is ready to be offered to the public. The most important new features are:

  • Support of international languages in titles of photos, galleries and groups.
  • Support of all image types that can be uploaded to Zenfolio (JPEG, TIFF, PNG, GIF)
  • Support for other image types such as PCD that are converted to JPEG before uploading to Zenfolio.
  • Generating and uploading of thumbnails for AVI- and MPEG-videos.
  • Copying of a configurable metadatafield to the title field of photos.
  • Configurable default sort order for galleries.
  • Synchronization session report containing information such as number of uploaded images and average upload speed.

You find further information on the ZenSync2 page here and also can download the current version of ZenSync2 from this page.

You can also visit the blog of Dan Richardson for more information on ZenSync here.

Thanks a lot to Dan for having the idea for this great tool and doing the hard job of the first version! Enhancing it was easy.


I’m happy that finally my blog is online and I find the time to write some posts. What can you expect to find here now and in future?

My very first idea for this blog was to use it for announcing news about my online photo gallery and write about the workflow, equipment and tools I use for photography. Maybe someday I will also write about photography itself. Photography in general is a wide spread topic and got even more complex with digital photography.

I am really gald that I started taking pictures in the age of analog photography. Many aspects of photography are common to analog and digital photography and light is “analog”. Anyway I am totally in digital photography now and for me this is the future. We always have to consider that the technology of digital photography has just started to evolve. Sharing knowledge and exchanging experience via the web is the best and most efficient way to learn and stay uptodate.

I will write about my current projects and works. Especially I want to announce events in the areas of theater and acting, concerts, shows, exhibitions, tutorials, marketing and sports as well as celebrations, festivals and parties. I will write short reports and post pictures about events I attended.

Reading this blog is free ;-) All I want to earn is your feedback. Whenever you read a post leave your comments at the end of the post.
