First of all - a wunderful product you gave us with FancyProductDesigner!
As we plan to do some automation for order processing, it would be nice to have the following possibilities:
- automatically export FancyProduct with completion of an order
- therefor it would be nice to be able to define default export settings for a product
- exclude layers or images from export (like Paddaman requested earlier)
- callback hook (to do further processing like converting RGB-PDF to CMYK-PDF and so on..)
Is it possible to add (at least some of) the requested features?
If not, any suggestions or workarounds?
Thanx a lot!
I would happily pay for this plugin. Ideally I sell downloadable print files so it would be great if the file that was available for them to download was also re-sized correctly.
Thank you all for the feedback. I understand that the need for this plugin is high enough to continue the development.
What would help me a lot is get an better understanding of how you are using the plugin now.
Also what export features you think are minimum "must-have" requirements from your point of view.
Currently the export works for the JPEG - IMAGES - CURRENT SHOWING. See screenshot.
I can imagine you want to extract layers or other to make the export work for your products.
To manage the BETA group I will setup a page with a short survey with questions.
Completing the survey will automatically register your for the beta and testing.
Sounds like a plan?
Good news, and good plan!
JPEG to us, is probably the least used of the supplied formats, due to lack of transparency-support. I think that applies to most people doing screen printing. High resolution PNG (300 dpi) works well. We could also use PDF or SVG, but have had some troubles with the fonts, mostly that information about line height and letter spacing is lost when exporting.
yey that's cool! I think it would be nice to select elements you want to exclude from export (like in admin solution for fancy product designer) as well as set the basic settings like output file, image format, View(s), scaling etc...
I'd love to test the beta.
Would really like to use something like that! I'll definitely register for the beta.
Sending an e-mail with all attachments to an admin would be great, optionally in a zip file. If PDF/SVG's are well supported (i.e: troubles with the fonts) it's probably best but like Andreas said a hi-res PNG works too. Support for multiple views and the possibility to remove the background layer, or a layer with a specific name, is critical.
When multiple layers are used and we export all layers, the resolution of the source file should be used. Currently, if you remove the background layer and export all layers at once with a scale factor of x2, FPD takes a snapshot of the staging area and increase the size of the snapshot by 2, effectively loosing quality.
Looking forward to test the beta!
Hi swouden, I think it's great that you want to improve the workflow. I print all kinds of photo gifts, and I am very interested in helping you with the development.
My magento-shop you can see here: www.geschenk-mit-foto.com.
I co-developed the designer for magento, but I need too a performant workflow for the wp-shop.
How can I get a beta pass?
Please add me as a Beta tester
