LightRocket users can now create and publish portfolio websites, access 5GB of storage, take advantage of photo management tools, and send files – free, forever.
SINGAPORE, Nov. 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Popular online photography platform LightRocket has announced that it is heading into the freemium sector. The company says its users can now instantly create and publish portfolio websites, access 5GB of storage, take advantage of world-class photo management tools, and send files – all completely free of charge and with no time limit. . “Some people find it hard to believe, but it’s a free deal forever. There are no expiration dates and no ‘give us your credit card’ clauses,” the CEO confirmed and LightRocket co-founder, Peter Charlesworth.
Founded and led by professional photographers, LightRocket aims to create a community of users able to develop, share and promote their talent.
“We don’t want our members to think first and foremost about subscriptions and payments,” Charlesworth said. “Initially, we created this service to promote photographers of all levels, from experienced amateurs to confirmed professionals. And you can’t get better value than free.
The change means users can now sign up, choose a model, upload photos and create a live website in minutes. “You can jump right in and promote your work without spending hours fiddling with a complicated website builder,” Charlesworth said. “We emphasized clarity and simplicity. The interface is quick to use and the end result is a sleek portfolio website that puts your work in the spotlight.
Like other freemium services, there are upgrade options for those who want to go further. LightRocket’s paid plans allow users to customize their templates, apply personal watermarks, use their own domain, and access larger storage (25GB for a Portfolio plan and 250GB for a Power plan) , among other benefits.
“When we looked at many of the services already available, we felt there was room for a professional level of service that included a freemium option,” said co-founder Yvan Cohen. “Everyone loves creating images, but ultimately we all need an audience for our work. Portfolio websites are still one of the best ways to display your work.
LightRocket says its style and approach, blending professional tools with accessible blueprints for all skill levels, sets it apart from others in the industry. “We have deep roots in the photography industry,” Cohen said. “We believe these roots define the way we work and the nature of our service. We hope our members will feel the difference.
