What sites do you guys use to show clients proofs?
Do you have your own website? If so, is there a way to have an online proofing gallery? That's what I have, I give the client a secure login and they can view their proofs for 2 weeks....
I'm experimenting with imp3.com which I found out about on this forum. So far I like what I'm seeing, I will try and show you a sample next week if it works out.
I've just recently started to do online proofing with my new photography business. Currently I am creating a photo gallery with Adobe Photoshop 5.0 and pasting the link on my website for the client to click on and view their proofs in a slideshow presentation. It's free for now.
imp3.com doesn't look like anything - just a static links site.
I just make a proof CD, with small pictures on it.
Recently used this to make an online web gallery. It will convert to lower resolution jpgs automatically. What you end up with is a single folder with everything needed.
I then burn it to CD and use that to present proofs using a web browser.
It includes templates with various styles that include adding a style frame around the photos.... Some of the frames are a bit abnoxious but it further prevents people from using the proofs to make prints.
The only gotcha is that it runs on mac OS only.
I like to sit down with them and show the images in projection or widescreen.
