How to send photos to a customer or proof photos online
With Arcadina you can now create client galleries on your website with username and password, this is what we call the private customer area. You'll get your customers to proof their photos and send you their selection easily. Creating a proofing gallery is very simple. You can also create a photo slideshow with music. Or create a gallery with photo downloads.
Take your business a step further with the private customer area, which is easy to use and requires no technical knowledge. Plus you can create as many customer galleries as you need, there is no limit.
There are several types of customer galleries that can be public or private (with password access). And you can add pictures and videos. Below we explain the different types.
Photo proofing galleries
Your client will be able to proof photos comfortably from his computer, tablet or mobile.
Proofing photo galleries allow you to create pages for your customers to select their favourite photos from a computer or mobile phone. Just create your proofing gallery, upload your photos and notify your customer to access your customer area, review their photos and choose their favorites (with the Favorites feature).
Once your client has proof her photos online you will instantly receive an email with the list of selected photos. And you will always be able to consult this selection of images, and the rest of your clients' current orders, from the admin panel of your website.
Private proofing galleries are ideal for photographers and videographers like you, who don't have the time to make an appointment in the studio with your clients to make the photo selection (because it will take up a lot of your time). This way your customers can choose their photos comfortably from home, and you can continue working.
In addition, the private galleries for proofing photos from home have an important marketing effect, because many times customers often make the selection of photos in the company of other friends or family. And that's an ideal way to let new potential clients know about your modern way of working, and your magnificent work of course.
Multimedia slideshow gallery
Prepare your clients, in a few minutes, a private selection of photos with music to leave them speechless.
With the multimedia slideshow gallery you will be able to show your clients a slideshow with music (optional) or a video. Ideal for showing a summary of a finished project. You can also assign permissions so that it becomes a private photo gallery.
Private Photo and Video Sample Gallery
It's a simple way to show your customers their photos or videos privately.
For photographers who simply want to show their photos and videos to their customers as quickly and professionally as possible, and safely. For example, you can show the photos to a couple only a few days after their wedding and when they are still on a honeymoon. Or a company or professional model who wants to have their photos available online but privately. You can also share with other photographers some private photos that you want them to see. It's an easy way to show your customers your photos in private.
The private show gallery allows the display of photographs but without the option to select, download or sell them.
Private photo gallery to sell photos with print formats
Offer your customers the print formats you use in your business.
You can sell photos in different printing formats: photo paper, canvas, methacrylate, wood and much more. They are now available with Arcadina Labs.
You can create private sale galleries for a wedding, photos of guests, photos of the end of a course, images of a studio session, photos of a social event, photos of a sporting event and anything else you want. The private photo galleries will also allow your customers to buy their photos from anywhere.
You can create a photo gallery with a general price list if all the photos are going to have the same price. Or if you prefer a gallery selling images with individual price list if each photo is going to have a different price.
The payment methods allowed for the sale of printed formats are Paypal and Stripe (payment by credit card). And you can also pay by bank transfer, cash payment with collection in store and cash on delivery.
Furthermore, the shipping costs are established according to the type of product and the destination.
We live in a digital age where people don't have time, and online shopping is becoming common and natural and can increase your sales and business opportunities. That's why it's essential that as a photographer, videographer or creative you have an page to sell your photos.
Private photo gallery to sell photos with digital download
Sell your photos online with secure payment and digital download of files.
It works in the same way as the gallery to sell photos with print formats, in fact the same gallery can include print and digital download formats.
The big difference in the sale of digital files is that once the payment has been made, the client will be able to download the files directly. The forms of payment allowed for the sale of digital files are Paypal and Stripe (payment by credit card).
Private photo download gallery for customers
This gallery allows you to download photos. Very useful for customer agreements and marketing. And much more.

Image download galleries allow your client to download their photos in digital format with a single click. It's a very convenient and effective way to deliver photos to your client.
The photo download galleries are also widely used for private events with many attendees or guests. For example the photocall of a wedding, private parties, business openings, promotional events, conferences of all kinds, institutional events, end of school year, etc…
They are galleries with an added value, because they allow (optionally in each gallery) to request, to whoever downloads the photos, their data, with a small contact form. And this is a powerful marketing tool that will allow you to grow your list of contacts and emails. To which you will be able to send your news and offers.
In addition, some photographers create this type of private photo download galleries with a previous economic agreement (with the bride and groom, the party organiser, the school principal,...). These clients pay a one-off fee to have their photos available.
