Top Ten FusionMLS Enhancements #6: Multi-Image Loader

Photographer with a BIG lens pointed at youWe’ve already talked about a lot of the enhancements that have been made to FusionMLS that set it apart from MLXchange, but this one takes the cake (at least so far.) Multi-image loader is something that will not only save you time, it will save you a lot of headaches in the process too.

Think about how you add images to your listings now. You put them all in one folder, click upload, select one, click open, label it, save it and then rinse and repeat. It’s a tedious task that takes far longer then it should.

Enter, FusionMLS. The next generation of MLS comes complete with the ability to upload multiple images at once. In fact, you can upload all 25 of your images for the listing your adding in one fell swoop. Then you can sit back, relax, take a sip of coffee, send an e-mail and FusionMLS does all the heavy lifting for you.


Does it sound too good to be true?

It’s not. Take a quick look at this video which outlines many of the enhancements you’ll find in FusionMLS and you’ll see the multi-image loader in action.

But wait, there’s more. Let’s say you’ve already added your Connecticut real estate photos, but you didn’t have time to give them each a complete description. Now you can edit all of the descriptions in one easy to use viewer. Simply adjust the description of the first photo, hit the arrow to move to the next photo and change the description for that photo.

Bulk uploading of photos. Bulk description changes. What more could you ask for when handling photos for your listings?

    Although it sounds good, and is a step in the right direction, the fact that it loads them in totally random order mitigates the time savings as now you have to go back and re-order them the way you want them after the upload. Less clicking to upload, but more clicking after.

      @Fred thank you for your comment. I will make sure this gets back to the development team.

    Are we going to get the map search feature where you can zoom out to a circle or a rectangle, etc. on the map and come up with all the listings in that area radius? I think this is an essential feature. I use it in 99% of my searches.

      @Susan this functionality is already in place in Fusion. If you’re having trouble with it please feel free to call me or our trainer Lauren at 203-697-1006. Thank you.

    In Fusion, you are not able to right click on a photo to copy it, you must “saved image as.” As an administrative assistant, this is sometimes how we get a photo of a property.

      @Kathy, it is against our Rules and Regulations to download and also a personal property issue as well. Thank you for your comment.

    Way Faster!!! A great improvement. Sorting them later is no big deal (and faster now with drag and drop.

    Looking forward to an improved CMA platform with Fusion – mls exchange cma getting old in the tooth.

    I’m dealing with a seller and would like to be able to send them images of similar house on their street that sold for much more than expected due to it’s excellent staging. You mentioned in an earlier reply that downloading images was against Fusion’s rules. Is there a way to access these images lawfully for download? Who owns them after they are posted but the house is now sold to new owners?

      @Sarah – sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Here is what the CAR Legal Hotsheet in January 2008 had to say about this very issue:

      1. “Solds”. “Solds” from the MLS are not the equivalent of a public record and therefore cannot be used for advertising. Information used must come from the land records and not from the MLS and must carry a disclaimer in at least the same size font as the advertising indicating that display of a property does not constitute a claim that the REALTOR® sold the property.

      2. Photographs. When using photographs in advertising, obtain permission from the current owner first. CAR has seen two complaints filed by property owners who had photos of their properties displayed in post-closing ads without their permission.

      I hope this helps. If you have further questions about this topic, please feel free to contact CAR for more legal advice.
