Why Nomadcitizen decide to go to Darqroom !2
Today, I will discuss about Darqroom website.
I received a certain number of emails recently regarding the small photo plugin from Darqroom, inserted at the bottom of my blog. In order to give you some clarification, I wanted to write a brief post about it.
But first, let’s step back for a minute so I can give you some background with my story.
For several weeks, I was looking for a place where I could store all my pictures but also organize them by portfolio or theme. Of course, I could carry on by just publishing post and add pictures at the bottom of each posts. As you can imagine, in terms of organization it’s not the best right ?
Another option was to set up some photo-album with wordpress plugin, but again, I was not very satisfied by the result, yes I agree with you I’m very picky !
Finally one of my friend recommended me to have a look at Darqroom website and I was immediately seduced by the format of their site and the list of features offered.
What and who is Darqroom ?
Darqroom is a new company, they started their activity in 2008 in Nantes (France), and want to focus on providing a platform for serious photographer (professional or not) who like to expose their work in the best conditions.
Again, I don’t want to preach simply by telling you this is the best product and you have to use it. However I found important to share my experience with you when I come across something useful and that has an added value (well at least in my opinion heheeh).
Today, I’m still playing with the plugin, well it’s a way for me to tell you bluntly that I’m not an expert and still learning but hopefully within a couple of weeks I will have a better expertise and control of the darqroom features.
*Unlimited storage picture: I have around 200 pictures, but at the end of the month this number should reach 500 or 600)
*Online gallery: I found this feature very interesting and useful specially when you want to show your friends your latest series of photos.
*Possibility to print picture/instagram with different type of papers
*Share your pictures and galleries with your friends
*Ability to sell your picture online (if you are interested to commercialized your photos).
In summary and the least I can say is: feel free to have a look at their website and get your own opinion.
Finally,if you are interested about the different portfolios that I included in Darqroom, you can click here or if you go to the bottom of my blog page, you should see the Darqroom plugin, you can click on Nomad Citizen, it will bring you directly to my portfolio page.
