Zillow's new photo viewing on map page = important to include many photos

This is VERY COOL!  Another reason why photos are so important!

Original content by Spencer Rascoff

We changed the user interface on Zillow for looking at photos on the Map & List page the other day, and it's pretty slick. The new site design makes it more important than ever to include all of your listing's photos -- we allow up to 50 photos.

Hello Sara, this is a very nice feature for home shoppers.  However, as a single/team agent user (no bulk upload) it is quite cumbersome to load photos one at a time.  We usually reduce our photos down to about 1200x800, and the other on-line sites we use, including our home MLS, will re-size to their maximums from there -- and still give us swift upload times.  Even with a current speedtest.net rating for uploads at 5Mbps+, I sometimes have a photo stall out when loading to Zillow.  Thus, if the Zillow upload interface for single user accounts can be addressed next, this will be a nice 1 - 2 combo.  Thanks!  John
