PLEASE NOTE:
If the Event Scheduling feature is being used for a gallery, the price list/shipping selected for the Event Scheduling will override any other price list/shipping association.

Changing a gallery's price list using the event schedule feature causes a different price list to be activated for the gallery when the gallery is accessed. The price list associated to the gallery is not actually changed. Keep this in mind if you are attempting to use the event scheduling feature to change a gallery's price list multiple times. 

SimplePhoto 2.0 Users now have the option to customize timezone and expiration/change hour. To update this information, click on the Photographer Information link under the My Account pane from your Dashboard.
Timezone:
Photographers can now choose a Timezone in the Photographer Information setting screen.  This timezone setting determines the timezone used when calculating gallery and discount expiration, and event scheduling. Also the time shown on customer receipts is based on the photographer's timezone setting.
Expiration/Change Hour:
The expiration/change hour would be used to determine the time of day when expirations or changes take effect. Valid values are 0 (midnight) through 23 (11pm).
