Management toolkit for photographers

photographers

Photography is an art of observation and capturing life; more than a medium for factual communication of ideas and above all it’s a creative skill. While there are plentiful of words and statements for its description, it is one of the fastest growing passion and profession around the world these days.

People who are fond of capturing beautiful and unique things, moments, places, etc. are drawing well by selling their art online. However, earning from your art is an art in itself. A number of factors contribute to this and customer satisfaction being the most crucial one, determines whether one is able to get full reward for his skills or not.

Why proofing is important?

Whether it is about creating a wedding album, crafting posters or making collages in different sizes and styles; photographers must ensure that their designs and patterns should match with the preferences of their clients. This makes proofing a necessary part of the job. You need to get your clicks and captures reviewed by the client and make changes according to the suggestions.

Sending a few photographs through your email can be done easily, but receiving feedback from the client and sending it back after moderation can create a hassling back and forth of emails for both parties. This is where a proofing tool for photographers comes as the handiest option. This tool is a central space wherein sharing and reviewing photographs becomes quite easy.

Streamline the proofing process

ProofHub offers three simple ways to get your photographs and images proofed from the clients:

  • Upload images and pictures in the central files section and can proof them from there itself
  • Raise a discussion wherein you can attach the files and your clients can directly proof the files using the available options.
  • Obtain the “copy proofing link” by right clicking the image you’ve uploaded in the files section and send this link to your client via chat or any of the preferable medium. Opening this link in a browser, your client would be able to proof the file.

It maximizes your efficiency and saves time that gets consumed in sending images to clients and receiving feedback through disparate tools. For example: If you need to make a wedding album, then you can create a folder giving an appropriate title and upload all the pictures in it. Now invite your clients to have a look and let them give their suggestions. Your clients can select photos that they want in their album and can suggest changes required in any of the photos by commenting.
