Well built all-in-one tool for running a photography business

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: I started out with just the Client Gallery Hosting version of Pixieset, but added the whole suite later as my business grew. I was swayed to the complete suite when they offered the Studio Manager feature, which allows you to schedule photography shoots and events.

Pros:

Pixieset's interface for managing its 5 applications is very well made and easy to use. It allows total control of the customization and upkeep of all aspects of your business from Client Gallery, Website, Store and Studio Manager.

Cons:

The larger Pixieset app packages for all applications can be a bit of an investment for photographers starting out. But the time you save by using Pixieset and its tools, can be applied to photoshoot and making money.

Perfect for me!

5.0 3 years ago

Pros:

I’ve used pixieset for years and can’t be more pleased with all the features it’s offered and continues to add to. I’ve never had any issues and it’s affordability is an appreciated asset. I suggest this software to anyone in my business. As a technologically challenged individual, I assure you, you can’t go wrong.

Cons:

I really have no complaints other than the lack of mobile features and capabilities on the photographers side.

Great platform for sharing and collaborating on content

5.0 3 weeks ago New

Pros:

Very intuitive and features are very handy to help speed up processes. Collection (galleries) are aesthetically pleasing with many templates to offer. Collaboration with clients and team members is simple.

Cons:

Navigation when uploading content is not the best, especially when you are uploading a lot of content in different sets. Lots of auto scroll ups after completing a set and max character limitations.

My Favorite Gallery Software

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: I have used Pixieset for almost 7 years. It has been my go-to for delivery of client images and I plan to use it for many more years to come. I know the images are safe on the pixieset cloud and easily accessible to clients.

Pros:

I love how professional pixieset looks and how easy it is for my clients to access their full resolution digital files. They can also order prints and download images. It's great for proofing and reviewing images as well.

Cons:

Sometimes clients have a difficult time downloading the images.
