Introducing a New Mico Uploader for Magento

New Uploader for Magento Released Shortly

We are gearing up to release a new uploader for Magento. We took all the customer feedback from our first upload module - Ajax Flash Upload Pro - and created an entirely new module. The new uploader supports multiple browser runtime formats and is far superior to our previous extension. In fact, the entire front-end Magento Uploader experience has been enhanced.

All customers who purchased our first uploader module can request an upgrade code which will provide a significant discount. Notifications will be sent via email. If you do not receive the upgrade email and would like to upgrade to the newer module, please send us an email. Be sure to include your original order number and email address of the original purchase.

HTML5 Uploader for magento

That's right folks. The new uploader has built-in support for HTML5 upload along with Flash and other upload runtimes. Our focus was on keeping it simple so we scaled down the admin config area and scaled up the thumb creation and post file-handling features.

The new uploader for Magento will come in 3 different packages - Basic, Pro, and Ultimate. Basic is just what it sounds like - basic file upload support for Magento enhanced with the Mico Upload functionality. Pro and Ultimate have more features that are useful for Magento stores that deal with printing and who require special handling of the image files that are uploaded by customers. Pro and Ultimate come packaged with a new thumbnail controller (mico engine) that uses ImageMagick to support thumb generation for various types of image related files and image editing source files (e.g. PSD, AI, PDF, TIFF).

More details and full specifications released soon. Please email us if you have any questions. We also have 4 new Magento extensions to release, all of which were designed for the Digital Printing and Large Format Printing industry. These modules will also be released soon and full documentation will be release shortly.

Stay tuned.

    We're currently working on a canvas printing website in Magento. Which module do you recommend for our image to product needs? I see "Basic" and "Bronze" modules. Will they be updated to "Basic", "Pro" and "Ultimate" or were these two versions the latest releases?

      Hello Luis. We will be replacing the current uploader modules with our new uploader soon. We are finalizing the packages and should be releasing them next week. Of course we would have to recommend the Ultimate version for serious Magento printing stores because it has the most features that most print shops need. For example, multi-file upload capability per custom option and also custom file handling to organize the uploaded files outside of Magento's default way of handling file uploads.

    We're also working on a custom printing webshop. Looks like a really good extension! Just missing one point: For our products we need to define and proof the required proportions of uploaded pictures (eg 150 x 30 cm). Is this possible?

      We have a module called Advanced Proof System that enables proofs and customer comments within Magento to avoid having to email customers artwork proofs. I can send you more details if you are interested. We also have other, full web to print solutions that can meet your requirements. Email us for more info and demos if you like.
