Thank you for visiting the new and improved online home of Kroll Images. Many changes have occurred behind the scenes in the past month, I hope you will like what you see!
The biggest and most obvious change is the look and feel of the site and it’s new home page. We have a new host (local and green Acorn Host), and new software (WordPress). These allow for the introduction of many new features, some of which are highlighted below. One thing that is not changing (although I’m doing some relaying) is my gallery host (Zenfolio) that I have been very happy with.
A major new feature is the Blog. You will read about where & what I’m shooting, new things on the site & the web, tips & tricks, and photo related news. The most recent full length posts will be featured on the home page, along with the quick posts in the ephemera on the lower left. I’m most excited about a new weekly feature; every Thursday there will be an Image of the Week post where you will learn the full story behind favorite and interesting images. Posts will be categorized and tagged so you can quickly find the kind of information you are looking for (like Image of the Week, or Sports & Action) on the right edge of the blog page. You can read it on the site, subscribe to it in your favorite reader, or have it delivered straight to your email. Comment forms are available on any blog post for your feedback or commentary.
If you are interested in specific types of images you can head straight to one of the new landing pages. These pages are a great shortcut to topical images, blog posts, and galleries. The current pages are for the Scenic Pacific Northwest at nw.krollimages.com, Sports at sports.krollimages.com, and Longboarding & Skateboarding at skate.krollimages.com. There are a few more on the way.
Kroll Images is now getting started on Twitter and Google+ in addition to the established Facebook presence. You will find buttons in many places around the site to share content via social media, please help spread the love if you see something here you like! There are probably buttons off to the left or above what you are reading right now, why not send word out that you are here?
Enjoy your time here. I love photography and it is very gratifying when others enjoy the results as well. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments, or use the comment forms on any blog page.
