Pros

I love the ease and price of using this to set up your own artist portfolio. Compared to other platforms this is a great affordable option.

Cons

Setting up can sometimes be tough to understand. I am an novice at web design so I would love some more video tutorial's to help me along.

Stuck with Zenfolio & Unable to Escape

I wish I had never switched over to them. The features are nice and shiny, but other services are available now.

Pros

Zenfolio was easy to set up and seemed clean. My clients liked it. They have an easy import tool to bring in your photos from other systems. I’ve been using it for over a decade with relatively few hiccups. Early on, I met one of the founders and he seemed nice. Things slowly changed after they were acquired.

Cons

There is no way out. I have messaged customer service for years asking for a bulk export feature. They repeatedly claimed this was coming and it never arrived. They have a “gallery” export tool, but even that is a challenge. I have wanted to leave zenfolio for the last 5 years, but with over 300 galleries on the platform, I just don’t have the 150 hours available to download them. They claim that there is no limit on their image download speed, but it’s regularly capped. I have a dedicated gigabyte line here and the folders download very slowly. Run. Do not start with them. You’ll never be able to leave.

After not knowing what to do at first, I was able to schedule a call with one of their reps to go over some of my goals I wanted to achieve with Zenfolio. The rep was very knowledgeable and helped me shorten my learning curve with the product. I now have my team using zenfolio, uploading our photos, categorizing them, and it's now part of our workflow.

Pros

We do real estate photography and love the fact that we're able to repurpose our photos. We position ourselves as marketers that happen to know how to use a camera, but haven't found a way to repurpose all of the beautiful photos we shoot. Zenfolio opened a new opportunity to take the photos we have and put them on their site so we can sell them and license them out to agents and potentially add more revenue to our business. The opportunity Zenfolio adds to our business could be game-changing.

Cons

Zenfolio is a bit slow loading from page to page and the navigation isn't the easiest. I understand that there's so much you can do with it and it provides some amazing features, but the load times and user experience does need improvements. With all that it offers, it's not a big deal.
