Photo Stork is a web application created at Pacific Software Publishing for uploading, managing, and sharing photo galleries. It allows users to share them with the general public, but what differentiates it from other photo sharing tools it it's ability to privately share photos with friends and family.
My role on this project was to work with the Programming team to do all necessary UI/UX production. Starting with the initial concept, I was to come up with wireframes and prototypes. Using Balsamiq I began with developing a sitemap and wireframe prototypes. Upon approval we moved on to initial mockups using Adobe Photoshop. The project was developed using the cakePHP framework to streamline the development process. My role was to integrate all of the HTML and CSS into the template system.
Through user interaction testing we were able to quickly identify elements of the service that were not entirely intuitive for users. At that point it was my responsibility to quickly adapt the process of the service to assist users in properly uploading and sharing their photos. Currently we are working to schedule, design, and develop updates to the website to make the service to improve the user experience and to enhance it's usability across tablets and mobile devices.
