picu – WordPress Photo Proofing Gallery

Description

Online Photo Proofing with WordPress

Send a collection of photographs to your client for approval.

  • With picu you can create galleries with images from your photo-shoots.
  • Send a link to your client via email as part of the workflow.
  • Once your client approves a collection, you will automatically be informed via email.
  • You can then easily retrieve your client’s selection to use in your photo administration software of choice.

All from the comfort of your own WordPress installation.

Install this plugin and say goodbye to overcomplicated communication with your clients. Shoot, upload, get Approved!

Go Pro – Our premium add-ons enable even greater functionality:

  • Brand & Customize lets you add a custom logo and adapt the client gallery to match your branding.
  • Mark & Comment allows your clients to add comments and markers to individual images.
  • Selection Options allows you to define the number of images your client needs to select to approve a collection.
  • Download enables your client to download all collections images as a .zip file.
  • Import gives you the ability to upload large amounts of images via FTP and import them directly from your web server.

Priority Support: We try our best to provide support and answer questions in the WordPress.org forums, but please be aware that one-on-one priority support via email is only guaranteed to people who bought one of our add-ons.
