Automatic Contact Images
By SlipFire | Published January 7, 2010
With RoloPress we wanted to make it easier to display contact image information. Most contact managers make you upload an image for each contact, which can be tedious. So, we decided to use an existing service millions of people use everyday; Gravatar.
When you enter an email address for a contact in RoloPress, and that email is associated with a Gravatar, it will automatically show up. If not, the default RoloPress contact image will display… which we understand is not the best option.
Future versions of RoloPress will probably incorporate something similar to Twittar, where RoloPress will first check Gravatar, and if no image exists then it will check Twitter. Another benefit would be company logo’s, since many companies already include logos in their Twitter accounts, they would automatically populate in RoloPress.
Of course, we should also probably include a manual option as well…
