Save time with the Desktop UploaderTip of the Week
Did you know we have a separate tool to upload photos to ShootProof? If you’ve solely been using the ‘Add Photos’ button in your browser to upload, stop right now and download the ShootProof Desktop Uploader! It’s quicker, more efficient, and you can even queue up multiple galleries so that when one finishes, the next gallery starts uploading right away. The Desktop Uploader works wonders if you have a slow or intermittent internet connection. Instead of stalling the upload, the Uploader will pause and resume the upload as soon as the connection is restored. But the best part about the Uploader Tool? -- It’ll organize your galleries and sort the photos into albums based on how they’re organized on your computer. So, if you have a folder called “The Smith Wedding” on your computer, and in that folder, you have subfolders like “Getting Ready,” “Family Portraits,” etc, the Uploader Tool will automatically create albums within the ShootProof gallery. The albums will be named to match the s
Save time with gallery presetsTip of the Week
Are you editing each of your gallery settings individually when you create gallery? Don’t do it! Save time and energy by using gallery presets. Gallery presets are one of the most under-used features in ShootProof. So what is a gallery preset? It’s a way to save your settings for common gallery types that can be applied before the gallery is created. So grab yourself a cup of coffee, set aside 15-20 minutes, and let’s create a few gallery presets! First, go to Photos > Galleries > Gallery Presets. If you’ve never created one before, you’ll notice that you have a Default Preset already created for you. If your galleries are mainly the same, use the Default Preset but it might make sense to create a few based on the types of galleries you traditionally create. To create a new preset, select New Preset. Give it a name. This will be internal to you and not visible to clients. (Pro tip: keep them name simple so it’s easy to reference on the fly.) When you’re in the pre
I have had several of my clients blocked this past week because the website is compromised due to “malware and phishing”. I am sure it is due to the recent email scam that went out, but now legitimate clients can’t get to their galleries. Anyone else have this problem??
Hello all! I know that SP is used mostly for individual customers, but I am also doing Volume photography for sports teams. at the moment I am only doing 2 leagues but have multiple teams.Are there any tips / tricks to upload each job as a gallery with individual folders per player and assign a contact? I have been using another service for volume and would like to keep everything in one place in my SP. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
For sure on IOS devices, people are telling me and I confirmed, that the “DOWNLOAD” button for an image disappears once it’s pressed, without always going to the page to enter their email and download. So far every time clients have used the Digital Downloads features, it’s been troublesome. Are others using this feature without issue?
I agree with this, to disable screen shots it stops the ones who only want your work to show off but have no intention to buy.. high school students buy nothing only parents buy same for my sports, players just take and share parents are the ones who buy.This has been a 15 year journey for me and being you are forced to do all online that one small thing available by others should be available by shootproof. While there are other things disabling screen shot is one item that makes me think in should move to another vendor no matter the cost.. if I picked up a few more clients that could not just steal items and actually buy, it would pay for itself.
Hello! I am starting into school photography. I would like to find a way to offer the pictures online as well. Is there a way to send pictures to each parent, but only have it so that they can see their child? I would be working with school with about 300 kids, so hopefully something easy and convenient. Also, how will taxes work with schools? The schools in NY state are tax exempt. Does anyone here work in NY with schools and know how to deal with taxes? Thank you!
On the page that shows all the thumbnails of images in a gallery, across the top of the page is a bar several icons (HOME, INFO, AND FAVORITES). Nothing happens when I click on HOME. In fact, the cursor doesn’t even show it’s linked. With the other two icons the cursor changes to a hand with a pointy finger. What can I do to make that active? Thanks!
When I upload images to a gallery they never ALL add to the successfully. I always have to go back and figure out which ones did not work and try again to add those photos to the gallery again. I usually have to do this a few time before ALL of the images are finally added to the gallery. I find this very frustrating! How do I fix this?
I want to limit my linked contact to only be able to download all the free social size images one time. But I dont see how to do that you can limit number but that doesnt make sense since they could not choose all and download one image several times then not have enough to choose the others. But now i have the client downloading images several times ..Isnt there a way to do One complete download and done or is that up to me to turn it off? Im sure they are downloading then sharing with family...they are social size so printing wouldnt look so good.. but many just share digitally.
Please can someone help me? I want to make prints for a client but the entire portrait cannot fit on the canvas /print preview on my print store. The crop I am seeing on my own end is cropping off clients’ family members and their heads. I tried to rearrange the crop but it is not allowing me to fix the entire picture into the frame. There is no way I am going to buy a print that has cropped off some very important details. Please can someone help me figure out what to do please?

When I preview a gallery, the quality of the images is not good. I know they are tack sharp on my end but the gallery my clients see are not high quality. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a setting somewhere I need to change?I need my clients to see the quality of my work and right now that isn’t happening.
I literally can not deal with this any longer this has been a long while that I have been dealing with slow upload 90 percent of the time. it was never like this when I started a few years ago. looking to switch companies. high volume photographers can not be dealing with this. I have angry clients waiting because the upload is so slow and not going through and some images missed everytime I upload so have to re run it to catch a few
Hi! Is there any way to control the rooms that are seen during the preview/mockup view with the canvas item group during client purchase? Is there a way to disable this feature or use our own background templates? I’m not a fan of some of the walls that are shown. Thank you,Cristina Seal
Does anyone use Fundy Designer for Wall Art and Album design and integrate it in their workflow with ShootProof? I currently use ShootProof for galleries and am thinking of beginning to do in person sales (or Zoom sales). Need a robust wall art and album design software so I can sell more to clients. I don’t want to invest in studio management software yet, but wonder if I can still make use of ShootProof for contracts and email to clients, then use Fundy to design and show during my sales consult. Fundy would produce a detailed invoice for me to take client payment and give them copy of invoice. Then could I go into ShootProof and produce just a one line item invoice to take payment? I would place print and album orders for Millers Lab directly through Fundy, but wall art orders would be placed manually, as Fundy doesn’t have a direct order relationship with the lab I use. Any suggestions?
I started galleries for everything and had categories they were in. Now learning the home button doesn’t work to get my clients back to the main page I now need to move all my galleries into albums so they can actually get back and not give up and leave the website frustrated as I’m losing potential sales due to the lack of the “home” button being actually a HOME button.Is there a way to move all the photos from one gallery to an album that is under another gallery and not have to reupload them from my computer?
