Giue your best images the exposure they deserve.
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of capturing a head-turning shot. While you’re learning the ropes of photography, that feeling will occur more and more often as your skills constantly improve. But it’s a huge shame to get so much satisfaction from taking a photo without sharing the beauty of it with other people. When you’ve got something to shout about, why not tell the world?
This is where the photo-sharing website SlickPic.com can help you out. It’s completely free to sign up to and provides you with a versatile and intuitive platform on which to showcase your growing photo talents. You can upload albums, compile them into collections and share these on all manner of social networks. You can also create your own personal photo blog alongside your image galleries and interact with the SlickPic community at the same time. Or, if you prefer, you can keep your shots private and share them with family and friends, or even simply use SlickPic as an online storage and organisation tool.
If you decide that you like SlickPic, download the free apps for iPhone and Android. You can also upgrade your account to take advantage of extra benefits such as more storage, video uploads and no pesky adverts. A yearly Plus account will cost you approximately £16/$25, and a Pro account is about £65/$100. Here, we’ll show you just a few of SlickPic’s brilliant features.
