|What is Preview Gallery?|
Need to display your images on line to enhance your sales?
Photographers today need to display images and sell products on-line, and if they don't, potential clients will just find someone who does. Don't know how to get started? Let us help! We can make it possible for your customers and their friends to have the opportunity to buy prints and other products from you, on-line with your own Preview Gallery. Created by award winning Master Professional Photographer Bob Kahn, this unique system provides you with all the tools you need to gain control of your digital work flow and sell on-line.
We do not charge setup or membership fees and we do not take commissions on your sales.
We proudly offer a service which will enable you to increase your sales through on-line image posting and streamline the order process. It includes a basic Preview Gallery website with 500 image capacity, complete with a PayPal enabled shopping cart and order fulfillment system. You can try this great sales and marketing tool free for 60 days. You 'll pay as little as $4.95 per month after your trial period is over for the basic 500 image gallery. We offer several monthly subscription levels with as much image storage as your business requires, so you pay only for storage as needed. There are no long term commitments, so you can modify or cancel your subscription at any time without further obligation. We do not charge a setup fee, annual membership nor do we take any commissions on your sales as some others do. Our system is built to provide a Total Solution for the photographer who would prefer to spend less time with image organizing, ordering and studio management. The Preview Gallery was designed by Professional Photographers and Experienced Studio and Lab Managers.
We include easy to use PC Windows Software to make Beautiful Photo Books!
MAC and PC users can access the Preview Gallery on-line Dashboard to securely upload images to the Gallery without any additional software. This easy to use interface provides the tools to manage events and web page content, make price and product changes or track your sales with detailed reports. You can place orders for prints and other products with the integrated FTP ordering system, or create incredible composite album pages with the fabulous new on-line Freestyle Album Designer. Have your clients select their favorite images, and then direct them to the site where they can review the album design you have created. Images displayed on the website can not be copied or downloaded. Changes can be made in a snap without re-doing entire pages. We can color and density correct your images, if necessary, and print the composite pages, ready to be bound in the album and company of your choice, or we can create beautiful and affordable custom photo books for you in-house.
Our Dashboard utilizes custom Java applets to manage files on the Preview Gallery and create print orders. When creating a new gallery, you can choose to use the Express option, and the full resolution files will be uploaded and stored on our local server. This way, when your clients place an order, it will be automatically transferred to our production system and be ready for printing without any intervention on your part. For a small additional fee, we will drop ship the order directly to your client. If you have a Pay-Pal account, you can collect payments directly from your client. We will bill you only for the cost of the print order and shipping.
If you are a Windows PC user, the stand-alone PC software provides easy access to your Preview Gallery for image watermarking, uploading, event management, print ordering, image adjustment, and includes a complete album page design program. The PC application is called Presentation Gold, and also provides users an easy way to transfer files from memory cards and quickly rename and organize images. In addition, you can color correct, rotate and crop your images, all without making destructive changes to the original file. TIF or JPEG images, or scans from roll film can be used with this system. The Preview Gallery is also accessible on-line so you can securely manage events, upload images, track sales, order prints and design album pages with the Freestyle Album Designer from any computer with internet access.
Print orders are created by the client, and transferred to your computer where Presentation Gold automatically retrieves the necessary files, and prepares them for transmission to Uphoto. You can review, crop or retouch each image before making a few mouse clicks that will send us the order. The easy to use album page designer, which is included with Presentation Gold, will greatly reduce the time needed to create composite pages. Additionally, the composites are produced in a format that allows each image element to be individually color corrected, cropped or replaced before printing. Hundreds of templates are available free of charge, and templates you may already be using can often be imported into the program for use with the album designer application. A template utility tool is provided to enable you to create your own designs in any size or configuration.
By entering your studio’s pricing information for each print size, an order summary report and invoice can be generated for each job. Orders prepared with Presentation Gold or Preview Gallery Dashboard qualify for discounted pricing on many services.
