We became photographers because we love the art, we love creating, and we love to capture memories, but we also have to make a living from this crazy profession. There are only so many hours in a day and only so many days in a week. Between editing, booking clients, marketing, and running a business, the number of shoots you can do is always going to be finite. Photo albums have become a staple source of income for many wedding photographers, and for good reason. They’re an easy upsell; couples want a physical memento of their special day. They’re a great way for newlyweds to share their memories with family and friends, as well as relive the magic themselves.
Any photographer who includes photo albums as part of their product offering will know how frustratingly time consuming they can be. Sometimes they can seem like just another admin task to use up your precious shooting time.
For Daniel Usenko and Alex Prykhodko, photographers and co-founders of Pixellu, this frustration led to the birth of SmartAlbums. They wanted to create a solution that allowed photographers to earn more money while living more meaningful lives. For the two of them, that meant spending less time in front of their computers, not more.
Nine years later, SmartAlbums 2019 is here. Driven by the feedback of users and photographers, the latest version of their drag and drop album design software is their smartest and most powerful yet. The simple and intuitive interface delivers powerful performance allowing you to design a stunning photo album in 15 minutes.
SmartAlbums has grown in popularity, helping wedding photographers to save hours designing albums—increasing profit margins without wasting valuable time. The powerful drag and drop interface allows you to quickly cycle through beautiful layout options, re-organize your spread, and quickly add text.
For those already familiar with the power and simplicity of SmartAlbums, the 2019 version makes it clear that Pixellu want to continue to grow and develop. Their latest update incorporates many features that their customers have requested, in a simple, beautiful, and intelligent way.
