Zenfolio is a photo management service launched in late 2005. Their photo management service includes photo hosting, drag & drop image uploader, theme and layout editor and print ordering. Zenfolio distinguishes itself from other photo management services by focusing on helping users create professional photo galleries that have individual flair.
|Launch Date||January 15, 2005|
The one thing you’ll notice immediately when you start using the Zenfolio service is that they have absolutely no ads. This is refreshing since most Web 2.0 services have ads. However, in very un-Web 2.0 fashion Zenfolio has monthly subscription costs.
You can easily upload your photos to their hosting service using an uploader tool like Flickr’s Uploadr. Once your photos are uploaded you can create clean pages for photo gallery viewing. They also have a photo downloader that is great for mass downloads.
Zenfolio lets you mess with themes, designs and colors so you can create a really individual page. For all Zenfolio’s focus on gallery page individualization, they should let users get rid of the Zenfolio branding or let them embed their Zenfolio page into their own sites.
Zenfolio’s Premium service, which costs $100 per year for unlimited use, allows the user to remove the Zenfolio branding. And they have detailed instructions on their website to allow the user to redirect the user’s domain to their Zenfolio site.
