It is now possible to use the scripting to import new files from new directories. This adds a lot to the possibilities for itegration in other programs.
The Setup for Windows now includes a launching executable which makes it possible to execute different scripts within fotoARRAY by calls from other applications. Each copy of the launcher executable uses its own set of parameter. This method works around the problem, that many applications cannot pass other parameters to the called applications other than the name of a file. The launcher exe can optionally can also call another program and pass the image file names. read more
Updated User interface:
fotoARRAY Broadcast got the ability to save a HTML image gallery. The user can select a gallery template which contains the required HTML, JS and other support files and a theme.xml file which controls the conversion. This feature is only available in the registered version of fotoARRAY.
The Userinterface has been further enhanced and problems with shortcuts (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V) have been fixed.
fotoARRAY Broadcast got the ability to upload images from smartphes to the desctop. Using a sepcial template the user can select files on the mobile device and send it to fotoARRAY. This feature is only available in the registered version of fotoARRAY.
The main window of fotoARRAY has been redesigned and modernized. While the symbols on the buttons were only marginally updated, they have been now implemented as vector graphics. Now scaling of the user interface also scales the buttons without loss in quality.
We show the new fotoARRAY Broadcast. It is a tool implemented inbto foto array to bring your images to your smartphone.
Improves the synchronization by loading data from XMP files after pressing the key F2.
You can press F8 to create or update XMP files to include rating and keyword information. The export has been improved. You can now select from a combo box how color numbers should be converted to color label names. We have included predefined templates for different languages, but by editing the included XML file you can also create new templetes.
We have optimized the support for color labels which are loaded from XMP side car files. You can press F8 to create or update XMP files to include rating and keyword information.
The new release fixes some problems with import of images: JPEG files were not imported when they were accompanied by XMP files.
Further more the synchronization was enhanced. New keywords, rating and color labels are now synchronized. When an external XMP file was changed, the next time when synchronizing, fotoARRAY can detect the change of rating, color or keywords and update the settings in the database. If those values were not change, changes made in fotoARRAY itself should remain.
This release fixes the problem that a newly created database inherited the "no import" setting of the demo database. It includes some improvements in the UI and translation.
The data base export now skips albums and keywords which are hidden temporarily. This feature makes it easy to create a reduced sub-catalog from some selected albums in the main catalog. The catalog can be given to somebody else an bde viewed with the free-edition of fotoARRAY.
Fix: This edition also solves the problem with message boxes to be inaccessible behind the current window.
Please download fotoARRAY to experience your images in a whole new way.

We created a fast bootstrap based site. It also includes the new manual in english and german language. You can access the manual from any page using the Documentation button in the upper right corner
It solves some stability and performance issues
The edit module of fotoARRAY now offers much enhanced layer support. The layers are created as needed using mathematical formulas which guarantees smooth transistions. Using control points the center of a layer can be moved, the gradation can be changed and its size or rotation can be modified.
I now imported a total of 1.000.626 to create a stress test for the data base. I did not have that many images, so I re-imported the same images from a renamed path. Having that many database entries to test, I was able to to improve the database. So the upcoming new version will be even faster than the previous version.
I am really pleased to finally be able to introduce FotoArray photo software. This software has, in certain ways, been a lifetime in the making. Julian Ziersch started taking pictures about the same time he started programming and throughout his life, they have both remained a passion of his. But only recently, when he realized that he had over 300,000 photos did he start dreaming about software that would make it easy and intuitive to locate specific photos, group photos together, assign them key words, import them from wherever they were, view their data and much, much more.
