Beng,

Drupal UK held a 1/2 day event about Drupal for Publications this week. You may be able to see video of it at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/mysqluk

A few interesting things came out of it:

Publishers are integrating Drupal into their work flows. There were a few people who explained how they are using Drupal as part of a larger system, either using legacy datat, or data from a live system where stories are entered.

One company - a large magazine publisher - is using Drupal. They have built some custom components, to work with their legacy data sources.(Perhaps it would be worth building hooks into ProsePoint to help with data import/integration.)

Components and things that were important for them include:

  • An image gallery creator - used to browse image libraries, and assemble images into a gallery. Their gallery sizes reach up to 200 images - for example with Michael Jackson.
  • A custom image cropper: for every image, they required a custom crop for different image sizes. This is so that they get the best shot possible. Their system works through the browser: the traditional drag to crop javascript mechanism. By this I mean thumbnails are created automatically, but are usually changed by the photo editor to get a better crop/resize.
  • They separate out image and caption because the caption depends on the image context.
Thought this would be useful stuff to know.

Hi,

Thanks for this information. I'll file it into my 'list of things to think about'.
