We are delighted to introduce you to a whole range of new options now available within our standard service.

Here are the NEW features you can benefit from with immediate effect -
FREE interactive plans ...
That's right ... PicturePlus plans are now included as standard in every subscription! This means you can showcase your high-resolution photos from within the floor plan on your own website and on most portals, as well as delivering a full-screen slideshow of all photos, all at no additional cost.
It's quick and easy to upgrade your classic plan to PicturePlus, simply click onto 'Upgrade Now' from your 'My Plans' page (or 'Order Upgrades' from the plan view), click onto PicturePlus and then follow the prompts to upload your photographs and associate them with them with the appropriate room.
Click on the button on the right for more information about PicturePlus and detailed 'How To' instructions.
NEW shading options ...
Use either the 3D or the Drop Shadow options to give your floor plans extra pizzazz. Select the option you prefer in 'MY ACCOUNT' - 'CHANGE PREFERENCES' - 'FLOORPLAN APPEARANCE' ... then click your chosen shadow effect from the drop-down menu. Here are a few examples to inspire you :-
NEW plot feature ...
This nifty addition to the portfolio allows you to show how the house and any outbuildings relate to the plot. And that's not all ... you can even define specific external areas such as lawn, decking, concrete etc. Simply select 'PLOT EDITING MODE' from the Options Menu - define your external areas using the normal drag-and-drop method and then drag in any features you'd like to include from the symbols menu on the left. (You can define your colour or monochrome preferences from 'MY ACCOUNT' - 'CHANGE PREFERENCES' - 'COLOUR FLOOR PLANS')
Introducing PLAN STUDIO
Yes, there's even more. The new PlanStudio has been introduced to help you enhance your floor plans quickly and easily after you've created them. For example, you can reposition individual floors, specific text such as your disclaimer and additional features such as the direction arrow. You can also save individual floors into separate files where required.
PlanStudio is still in it's Beta (or Test) mode meaning you'll see loads more functionality added in the coming weeks and months. It also gives customers the opportunity to provide direct feedback and make suggestions about what YOU would like us to add. When you access the Feedback screen you'll be able to see the features that other customers have requested and you can rest assured that we're busy working on them.
Existing customers will notice many other small tweaks we've made - each of which is designed to deliver all of the bells and whistles you need to impress your customers, more quickly, more easily and more affordably. As always, we eagerly await your feedback
