Favourites

Hi..have been using lite version for a while and have now upgraded to pro. Am trying to configure it so that customers can choose "favourites" from the album to view before they purchase. (500 pics is a lot to wade through and most clients only order 20 or so prints) As far as I can tell the easiest way to do this would be through a virtual album but what search criteria do I use? Would like to use ratings but obviously that wouldn't be specific to the person logged on, it would be everyone's rating. Any ideas, or is there another method they can use?

It's probably staring me in the face but am still a bit new to this

Thanks for any help you can offer

Nick

Just want to clarify that it'll you displaying the favorites folder and not the user creating the favorites themself.
1. Tag images with the keyword 'favorites' (Keywords metadata) using any IPTC editor tool (to the original images used as source by Jalbum).
2. Define virtual gallery with Title as 'Favorites', search text as 'favorites', source as 'Image Tags'.

No it will be the user generating the "Favourites" themselves. not me via a tag/Virtual album.
That would be quite easy to set up as you rightly pointed out.
I just need some way of users being able to input something to create a favourites list/gallery.
If that is indeed possible

It's already in my wish-list and will likely make it to the next release!

Hi there - Is there any news as to whether this feature has been implemented?

I just discovered jAlbum and I am thinking of making the switch as I would really like to host the photos on my own web site.

But - I really MUST have a feature in which users can select favorites. It is essential part of the process in which I do business.

Thanks!
