One of the most important tools for a photographer—and also one of the easiest ones to leave until later—is an online gallery platform for sharing images with your clients. After all, that’s how your clients will view, download, and purchase their beautiful new photos! 

There are many different options out there, such as Pixiset and ShootProof, and it might take some trial-and-error to find the one that works best for you. Through some research and the help of a few trusted recommendations, I settled on Pic-Time—and I never looked back. Here’s why!

  1. Stunning visuals. For me, the overall appearance and aesthetic are exceptional. Not only is the site as a whole visually pleasing for the user, but it also offers additional design options for each gallery. You can change the color of your album cover, alter your cover text, switch between light and dark modes, and take advantage of a variety of options. And even with all those customizations, the photo-loading speed is reliable and fast.

  1. An easy-to-use app for uploads. Most image-sharing sites require you to upload photos through their site, but another bonus of using Pic-Time is the ability to upload photos into a gallery when you are on the computer and when you go off somewhere and come back, the Pic-time will start uploading where you left off. This allows you to back up your work while avoiding the hassle of potential computer crashes or browser freeze-ups—plus you’ll be able to maintain an incredibly fast upload speed. Not to mention, you can change the cover photo and switch the photo order… the options are endless.

  1. A handy slideshow feature. Not only are you able to customize the photo gallery, but you’re also able to create a slideshow with all the same customizations (and more!). You can choose the image layout, change background colors and text, add music, and even make sure that the beat of the music matches the speed of the slideshow. Your clients can purchase and download images from the slideshow as well. I love the slideshow! 
  1. Amazing customer service. I promise I’m not employed or sponsored by Pic-Time in any way—but I must say that their customer service is one of the best that I’ve ever experienced. On the rare occasion that I run into an issue or have a question, I simply contact the customer service, and I always walk away with a solid answer and understanding of how to proceed. 

Whether you’re just starting out as a photographer or have been in the business for a while now, Pic-Time can be a great asset for all your photo-sharing needs. Use this code KRISTENLISAPHOTOGRAPHY for a free month-long trial to test out how amazing it is!
