picu - Client Proofing for PhotographersWe finally announced our upcoming WordPress plugin “picu” today. It’s a client proofing solution for photographers, which intends to bridge the gap between the photo shooting and the following selection process with a client. The idea initially came up during the development of a photography website, when the client told me that he was searching for something like this for a very long time and wasn’t satisfied with any of the options available. After a bit of back an forth, Florian and I decided to give it a try and started with the development soon after.

Right now we just started with a closed alpha phase in which we will gather some further feedback from a broader range of photographers in different fields and soon we will launch a public beta. Everything’s still a bit rough around the edges and we have tons of ideas how we can improve and make this thing even more useful for photographers. But as Reid Hoffman, the founder of LinkedIn, once famously said:

If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late.

Let’s see how embarrassing it will be. Exciting times, stay tuned!
