Slick Pic offers its members a range of membership packages to help them upload, edit, store and share their photos. Its free membership offers a generous 1000 photo limit, whilst its paid packages provide a range of additional features. Whilst it’s a solid platform, it lacks personality, and can feel over priced in comparison to some other sites, particularly as you cannot use it to sell or produce products.
The site itself is easy to use, and, once you open an account, you’ll be presented with a handy dashboard. From here you can upload pictures, organize them, view them in a web gallery, edit images, share them or explore the rest of the site.
There are a few little community features on the site, including the ability to comment on a photo. This allows you to share your thoughts and build up a bit of a repertoire with other members. If you like someone’s work enough, you can also follow them, so you get updates when they post new snaps.
Upgrading opens up a few more opportunities, including additional storage space (up to 500GB for business packages). Business and Pro account also allow you to create your own themes and utilize your own branding, so they are ideal for large corporations who want to share images with colleagues.
In fact, it does seem as though SlickPic.com has businesses in their crosshair. Their packages allow multiple users, with a wide range of devices, to use a single account. This makes for a useful in-house sharing system.
The site lacks a bit of fun, although it does encourage beginners to sign up. Exploring the galleries is enjoyable as they’re well presented, but it’s not that easy to find a specific photo or theme within the community’s photographs.
“Show and Tell” allows you to broadcast a live presentation with narration, explaining your photographs. This might also be used as a kind of web conferencing or broadcast system within a company, although it has far fewer options and features than a standard web conferencing suite.
Overall, we were impressed by what Slickpic offered, particularly to its free members. Upgrading is going to be useful for organizations which want to share and brand their images, but not for making money per se. It’s worth registering and checking out what’s on offer, even if you only intend to maintain a free account for personal use.
