Our ImagePress campaign is now live on Indiegogo! You may have seen updates lately regarding our ImagePress and Cinnamon Users plugins as we’ve decided to merge them into one bundle. Read more below and stay tuned for updates!

ImagePress Plugin Bundle Campaign

Short Summary

ImagePress is a WordPress plugin used to generate user galleries. Users can upload image, categorize them, tag them and add a small description. Images are grouped into separate sortable and filterable galleries.

Some of the features of ImagePress include:

  • Image upload
  • Image editing
  • Image variants, detail shots, progress shots (à la Behance)

Cinnamon Users is a WordPress plugin used to generate user profiles, user portfolios and user cards. Also, the plugin allows for frontend login, registration and password forgotten forms.

Some of the features of Cinnamon Users include:

  • Author profiles, custom avatars, cover images (à la Facebook)
  • Frontend profile editing
  • Frontend registration and login
  • Author portfolios (white-labeled, unbranded, custom template pages)
  • Custom slugs (/profile/, /u/, /p/, /i/, etc)

What We Need & What You Get

For easier maintenance, faster updates, reliable features and performance optimizations, we decided to merge ImagePress and Cinnamon Users. This would allow for faster feature implementation, more frequent updates and a more performant codebase.

Based on heavy use and alpha/beta testing on, we have identified the bottlenecks and we created a merge strategy.

  • We need coffee, cappuccino and dark mocha to continue working on these plugins.
  • Get early access to the plugin, and get a discount when purchasing the bundle.
  • Each contribution will be rewarded, so no funds will be lost if the goal is not reached.

The Impact

The new ImagePress will be able to create standalone websites, like CGSociety, ArtStation, DrawCrowd, LayerPaint, 3DTotal, Blender Cookie, CG Hubs or Poster Spy.

The level of customization will include colours, fonts, templates, dimensions and switchable features. No two websites will be the same.

Risks & Challenges

We release alpha/beta features every two weeks, and, based on beta level, users will have access to these features when they are released. We value our customers feedback and strive to fix any outstanding bugs or issues.
