One of the things I really wanted to do this year was to find a better way to get clients their photos. I’ve had a few instances over the years where clients have gotten their CD’s but were unable to get them to work on their computer and now I have a few MAC users who don’t have CD drives. And so I started exploring options and I am super excited to announce that I am now offering clients their galleries through PASS. Here are just a few reasons why I’ve fallen in love with PASS:
– PASS offers beautiful online galleries that stay active for 30 days.
– You can download your images directly from your gallery. This means no more waiting on your CD to arrive in the mail!
– Selections for your prints and albums are also made easier because you can select photos to include in a Favorites folder. No more selecting by image number!
– You can share your photos on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and via email with just one click. And friends and family can leave you a message on your guestbook.
– PASS also offers professional, lab quality prints at affordable rates in three sizes: 4×6, 5×7 and 8×12. Yes, 8×12 is not 8×10 but it can easily be trimmed to fit into 8×10 frames and although 8×10 has traditionally been my standard crop, I will be switching to 8×12. It’s a difference that you won’t notice but it will make printing through PASS easier. Honestly, there is no place that is comparable to a professional photo lab for prints and PASS can give you affordable prints without having to upload your photos to another site.
– Any gallery can be upgraded for $29. Upgrading allows you to download your photos all at once vs. one at a time and it will also keep your gallery active for one year. In addition, your photos will be backed up by PASS for 10 years.
-PASS also offers a free mobile app. Your photos will be at your fingertips so you can show them off no matter where you are!
I’m really excited to make this change! I will be offering thumb drives by request and for larger galleries (events, etc.), but I think clients will prefer to just download them directly to their computers. Check out PASS for yourself and tell me what you think!
