We're looking forward to attending Peers Conference in Chicago this coming week. Looks like a great line-up, and we know a bunch of old friends will be in town. If you're planning on going, we hope to see you there!
New Add-ons This Week
Make sure to take a look at Photo Frame from Objective HTML, released this past week. The execution looks top-notch.
MC Country by Michael Cohen (ProImage)
Uses the IP2Nation module to detect and output a visitor's country (the ISO country code) from their IP. Can optionally display content or redirect to a URL if a visitor is from a specified list of countries.
Photo Frame ($) by Objective HTML
Photo Frame is a robust module that allows you to upload and manipulate photos using a clean and simple interface. Photo Frame has a plethora of settings and configurations and is compatible with many of the best add-ons, so it can be used in exactly the way you need it. The possibilities are endless and your users will love it.
Photo Frame Effects Pack ($) by Objective HTML
The Effects Pack adds a new button, and new effects preview window to the Photo Frame Toolbar. There are 10 effects in this package, 4 are completely original. The following effects are included in the package: grayscale, sepia, emboss, edge detections, mean removal, negative, aged paper, newspaper, storybook, and midnight.
Photo Frame Button Pack ($) by Objective HTML
The Button Pack adds 9 additional buttons to the Photo Frame toolbar. The following buttons are included in the package: blur, brightness, contrast, flip, pixelate, rgba, sharpess, smoothness, and vignette.
Link Vault Limiter by Masuga Design
This extension enforces member download limits for the Link Vault add-on.
Just Resize ($) by Isaac Raway (Airways)
Just Resize does one thing - it just resizes images. It does not fetch remote images, it doesn't do sepia tone effects, it just resizes and returns a URL to the saved image. This combined with copious amounts of debug output make it the best choice for simple image resizing tasks - it just works.
Better Category Layout by JCDerrick
Better Category Layout allows developers to easily arrange their category groups on a single line, where all the fieldsets have an equal height. It's plain and simple, but it works.
