LUMIPro Spotlight!

**** Walks into the LUMIPro sales room followed closely by five men carrying very large frames.  Directing them as to where to place everything I nod and smile to myself as they finish their work.  ****

Oh hello again.  It has been awhile since we chatted last and I am excited to announce that we are changing things up here at the studio.

**** Walks over to the light switch and flips it on.  Turns back towards everyone with a bight smile on my face and my arms thrown wide ****

We are happy to announce that we will be featuring these wonderful works in the studio for the next few weeks.

****Smiles with glee and excitement****

Are these not just fabulous! I can not wait to show you all more! I want to remind you of a few things before I go. 

Don't forget we still have the customer survey going until September 10th. If you fill it out you will entered for the chance to win an interview on the LUMIPro blog and 1000L. You can find the survey here.

Also do not forget that the exclusive customer appreciation and LUMIPro release party is coming soon! So get your dates lined up and dust off your favorite photos. We will be doing a flash gallery at the event.

**** Turns to watch the nice view as the men file out of the show room.  Wiggling my eyebrows as a huge smile spreads across my face. ****

Oh look at the time I have to go

Hear Ye Hear Ye One and All!

**** walks into the room and throws her arms open wide with a huge smile on her face **** 

Welcome one and all to my very first official LUMIPro blog post.  

**** Leans in close as if to confide a secret and whispers ****

There are so many exciting things coming up for LUMIPro I just could not wait a minute longer to tell you all.  
**** Places her finger to her lips ****

SHHHH just don't tell Stefan

**** Rubs her hands together in glee as the smile spreads across her face once again ****

Okay the first thing, and probably the one I am most excited about, is the release of Beta 3! It came out last night, and it should automatically update when you wear your old hud. On the off chance that it doesn't, or you don't have a copy of the Beta yet, you can pick one up at LUMIPro World Headquarters. We are still looking for your feedback or any bugs you might find. To report a bug or give Beta feedback visit LUMIPro Beta or send Stefan Buscaylet a notecard in-world. We are hoping to have the official release out very soon, and we all know what that means... party time! Details soon to come!

The next exciting thing happening right now is our new customer survey! This is a chance to tell us some more about you. Oh and let's not forget a chance to win an interview on LUMIPro's blog and 1000 lindens! It only takes about 5 minutes, and it's super easy! Contest rules are simple you must be a LUMIPro owner and you must fill out the whole survey, Simple right.  You can find the form here

We have much more exciting news to come, but I think I will save that for next time.

**** Wiggles her fingers in a good bye gesture as she grins wickedly and backs out of the room **** 

Happy Shooting!

Best of Luck Colleen

So in July 2011 I had this amazing opportunity to meet with the business manager of Second Life’s biggest photo studio system.  At that point LUMIPro had only sold about 10% of the units we’ve sold so far today and I propositioned her with the idea of working together on the development of LUMIPro.  Colleen immediately saw the value in it and started what ended up being an over 3 years collaboration.  She was responsible for building the lumipro SL group, the LUMIPro Flickr group, gallery sponsorship, the LUMIPro blog as well as front line customer support.  We debated features for countless hours.

Colleen is moving on to other projects inside of SL and I wanted to wish her my very, very best.  She’s been an awesome colleague and my BFF.   Please wish colleen well in her current projects with blogging, Babenco & Criss, BUSTed magazine, and other projects I’m sure she’s going to start working on.
