New intro video



You may or may not have noticed that our homepage sports a new video to help introduce some of the many features found within Digital Pigeon.

Spoiler Alert: This is the first time Digi has been animated, and for the curious, I do all the Digi related graphics with 3D Studio Max (with V-Ray renderer) and for this video a little compositing with After Effects.

So that’s how my weekend was spent but, despite my insistance, we didn’t get to put a little motion capture suit on a pigeon.

New beta feature: previews

We’re excited to announce we’ve added media previews to Digital Pigeon. It’s a pretty awesome feature that allows you and your recipients to view images, video (and soon audio) files without having to download them.
 
If you’re working on a project and sending a lot of files back and forth, you don’t necessarily want to have them taking up room on your own hard drive, so this feature gives you the convenience of great online sharing services like Vimeo, Flickr and Soundcloud but all the content is delivered over our secure network with your branding, delivery notification and all the other features you love about Digital Pigeon.
 
Pretty cool.
 
We’ll be turning this feature on by default in the coming weeks but if you’re interested in helping us test it out you can enable by checking the ‘Display media previews to recipients’ checkbox under the options section on the send page.

Mac desktop app v1.3

We’re pleased to announce the availability of version 1.3 of the Mac Desktop app. This release includes the ability to quickly view files you’ve attached to a message, much like Apple’s Finder.

The quick view feature makes it easier to keep track of which files you’ve attached to a message. For example, if you’ve attached a bunch of images (IMG_20012, IMG_20013, etc) and can’t remember which is which, just highlight the file you want to view, hit the space bar and a quick view of the file will appear. You can also double-click a file to open it… 

If you’re already using the Desktop App you should get the update automatically, otherwise you can download it here: https://digitalpigeon.com/a/#/tools

If you have any feedback we’d love to hear it!

Taking care of business

Digital Pigeon - taking care of business

Did you know that Elvis called his band ‘Taking Care of Business’? He’s pretty much the coolest guy ever…and something else that we think is pretty cool and that we’re super excited about is the addition of our new Digital Pigeon Business Plans.

It’s our new top-of-the-line plan specifically designed for creative organisations that need to have multiple users on the same account.

With full design customization capabilities, it allows multiple employees or users to share the consistency and professionalism of your company’s brand with the personal touch of the individual’s profile.

So if Mary from accounts registers your plan, it means all the files you send aren’t going to come from Mary, whom your clients may not know, nor have a relationship with. Not that we have anything against Mary. She’s lovely.

It also means that the upload and download notifications will go to the specific sender of the files and not a generic email address, so the individual can monitor the progress of their own files and stay on top of their specific projects.

Business plans start from as little as $30 per month. But you can check our the pricing options here: https://digitalpigeon.com/pricing

You’ll be sending files like a boss in no time.
