I am currently running an online shop using Zen Cart (http://www.snugabugbabies.com/hp_zencart). I am considering a switch to Magento. That said in testing/playing I am trying to determine if the following functionality exists within the Admin:

1) custom forms for products by category (e.g., birth announcements require name, dob, length, weight, etc., Party invites require name, age, party location, date, time, etc...)

2) can a customer upload a file/photo to be added to their custom card order?

If these are not available in the current version (1.1.6) are they planned for a future release?

Thanks in advance…

I am also looking for image upload functionality, perhaps under custom options. We sell retail packaging.

I think the way Magento handles images in general could use some work. The fact that different products can’t share images is one issue. Another is that if you go to a product page and view the image url, it is VERY ugly, and being pulled from cache. Google images will run into trouble because that url will change. This happens even if cache is disabled.

Hello

Have some ideas on this point:
- You can use WEB TO PRINT: INSTAGRAM PHOTOS extension to allow making Instagram prints to the customers
- Also customers can be encouraged with a possibility to upload their photos to your site with this CUSTOMER SHARED IMAGES extension
