from AP Images:
As part of our effort to improve your experience while maintaining a safe searching environment, we will be launching an upgrade this weekend. The upgrade features a streamlined navigation toolbar that enables our ability to add more categories like the “World Elections” and “Beijing Olympics” spotlights. Also, changes to photo navigation make it easier to access features like the slide-show and make it easier to identify your search terms.
The first phase of the upgrade will be conducted during the early morning hours of May 30, 2009. During this time, AP Images will be fully functional and available for your use, though clients that authenticate with a username and password will see a slightly different screen. Clients may see a screen that will ask for your email address, please disregard this. Please enter the username that you have used in the past in this area. Most users, however, will not be affected. Phase two of the upgrade is tentatively planned for June 2, 2009. This phase applies a service pack to address items identified in the latest round of testing and to update the login screen.
Should you have any questions about this upgrade, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Issues of a technical nature can be directed to email@example.com, or 800-249-5389.
