About Format

Format is a cloud-based website designing software for photographers, artists, designers, illustrators, models, architects, and businesses having specific teams for graphic designing or website building. Key features include portfolio management, website creation, photography enhancement, search engine optimization, and data protection.

The Format dashboard allows photographers to manage activities, such as building websites, creating and promoting portfolios, uploading images and videos, updating live portfolios, and developing an online store on a centralized dashboard. The Format design editor automates the process of developing websites with custom templates and mobile responsive themes, eliminating the need for technical coding.

Videographers and influencers can benefit from the gallery page, which provides a consolidated space for uploading and storing the photos and directly sharing it on the online store for promoting or showcasing among clients. Format offers integrations with Adobe Lightroom and Capture One to facilitate data sharing. It offers an iOS app to let users manage websites and cater to the clients’ requirements, even from remote locations.

I've recommended Format to all of my photographer friends. It would be awesome if it were cheaper but I understand all the costs associated with running an interface like this and I'm happy to oblige with the cost!

Pros

Love the simplicity and functionality of the user interface. But my absolute favourite thing is the Format customer service. No waiting on the phone to get help from someone across the world needed... you message them over the website and they get back to you so soon! And they really do listen... if you ever find something you don't like or wish they had, they will most likely include this feature in their next update!

Overall I’ve had for Matt for years and I’ve never had an issue with a customer support is speedy I haven’t gotten to meet up with any issues I may have

Pros

What I like the most is that it is extremely User-friendly. Setting it up your self explanatory. Nice modern layout

Cons

What I find most difficult is using it on a cellular device. On the computer it is quite easy to maneuver. However on his cell phone somethings need to be changed as far as downloading pictures

Easy to make a simple website

I was able to create my first website for my business without hiring a professional.

I was able to create my first website for my business without hiring a professional.

Pros

Building a website takes all of 10 minutes. Lots of customization options and with my package I can upload as many images as I'd like to show off to clients. I also love using the proofing options so my clients can view and pick out there favorite images from their person session.

Cons

There is no automatic slideshows for my website. I'd love to have my main page have pictures that fade in and out automatically.

Fantastic and amazing website builder that within a few clicks its professional.

Reviewed on 2017/09/12

Pros

My friend told me about Format after i needed to find a decent website builder to show my work and they weren't wrong. Three months later of hard building I had the best possible site to show my art and the hits have been amazing.

Its easy, fast and so clear and shows all styles for everyone that wants a professional website.
Text fonts, tones and unlimited pages and amazing colours and templates.

I would not suggest any other website builder then Format.

Cons

I do wish it would also offer a free usage for beginners or students who cannot afford to pay a month charge.

A beautiful professional website

A beautiful professional website

Pros

The ease of use and functionality - beautiful templates! I was able to quickly figure out how to select a template, alter the template, etc. even without any type of quide. I've used Squarespace and Format is so much more intuitive to me. Also I love the simplicity of most of the templates and amount you can alter them. The Proofing site is a HUGE plus as well.

Cons

Was missing a type of template that I really wanted that most photographers use (via Squarespace). They had all the pieces separately across other templates but didn't put them together.
