Less than one month after we implemented new slider in Altima Lookbook Professional, our team released free version of this popular Magento eCommerce extension with new great slider – Camera by Pixedelic.
So now Lookbook Free has same great features that were available in Professional version only:
Almost an year after the 1st version of Altima Lookbook was published, we have completed major update of our extension: jQuery slider library used in Altima Lookbook is now replaced to new one that provides much better functionality: more transition effects, better performance on mobile devices, ability to use thumbnails of images instead of dots in pagination and tons of other small but nice features.
Altima team did a lot of research with different sliders and one we selected and use now is Camera by Pixedelic. This guys did really great job and so far it is the best solution we found.
Five months after 1st LookBook Pro release we have prepared new version of our popular extension for Magento eCommerce. New functionality added is the result of invaluable feedback we got from our clients.
So, what functionality was added? Here is the list:
It’s possible now to add sliders as snippet or widget added, so there is more flexibility in the ways you can use to incorporate Lookbook to your store;
Now it is possible to use any URL from hotspots (not only to products in store as it was before) ;
minor improvements and bugfixes;
We thanks all our clients who provides us with feedback and hope that new version of the extension will help your or your clients Magento store works even better
Two months ago 1st version of Altima LookBook extension for Magento was uploaded. It is the 1st commercial extension that Altima created for public distribution ( there are 2 versions of the LookBook – free and enriched paid) and we are happy to see a good level of interest from Magento merchants and developers: the extension was downloaded over 100 times from Magento Connect.
Somebody can count that number as quite modest, but taking into account that this is our first product published at Magento Connect, we consider the result as fairly good, especially taking in account that the extension got number of very positive reviews.
All our team thanks customers for their interest and support!
Lookbook extension for Magento eCommerce developed by Altima (both free and professional versions) is checked by Magento and available at Magento Connect.
LookBook extension allows online merchants who run Magento store to create an interactive gallery with photos of the good they sell in environment. Each photo can have several clickable hotspots that link the images at the photo with products available at the store.
For several years Altima has been developing customized online stores based on Magento Ecommerce platform. We feel a need in the solution that allows Magento merchants to showcase products they sell in a better way than plane product pictures. That’s how Magento Lookboox extension was born.
Magento Lookbook allows to show big beautiful images with the references to your product (hotspots) right from the image. For example you may see the photo of leaving room with different pieces of furniture and each piece has a special mark. When a user roll-over to this mark he/she see small window with product name, price and direct link to product’s page.
The product is in the stage of beta-testing now and we plan to release it in late April-May 2012
According to official press-release published today at eBay web site, auction giant acquired rest of share in Magento Inc, the creator of Magento e-commerce – one of the most popular open source e-commerce platforms. Last year eBay already bought 49% stake in Magento and today announced the full ownership purchase.
According press-release, Magento will be used to build new product from eBay, X-commerce:
X.Commerce, eBay’s newly created integrated open commerce platform group, is focused on leveraging the company’s assets and partner technologies to build a strong, robust developer community as a resource for merchants and retailers of all sizes
It’s interesting to track how the situation will develop and what happen with Magento open-source solution. It would be pity if eBay decides to shut it down.
