This weekend we may some significant improvements to our checkout process.

Specifically, we had been having some problems with our email server (hosted by Google) not immediately sending out purchase receipts. That has been fixed now.

We also streamlined the order confirmation messages themselves, making our texture product download links more prominently displayed (so once a customer purchases, it is easier for them to download their purchased products).

The final improvements were to our texture map descriptions, especially our Trees Vol 1 texture package.

Last month was our best month ever for sales and I hope that some of these new enhancements will make our site even more useful for our customers 🙂

Today we revised our help pages. Previously the main help page was rather sparse, now we fleshed it out a bit and things are looking better.

We are also working on some new texture map packages and new additions to our Tree texture package and our Tropical (palm tree) texture package.

Later this month we’ll be introducing our first Architectural Elements texture package. This package will include materials for realistically texturing buildings.

Since Spring is in the air, we’re looking forward to plenty of new flower textures and even some new shrubs/grasses 🙂 It’s an exciting time of year!

Our thumbnails and full size previews look better now.

Previously our texture thumbnail listings were cluttered because alpha channel thumbnails were displayed alongside the normal thumbnails. After changes made last night, only regular texture thumbnails are displayed and then when you click on a thumbnail you get a full size preview with the alpha channel displayed as well. This makes navigating our texture map products and samples much easier.

The changes are visible on the following pages:

Currently I am regenerating our large product preview images. That should be done in an hour or so.
