SeeFile Introduces Software for Making Online Image Catalogs Easy and Cheap for Designers, Photographers and Labs
At the Photo Marketing Association’s (PMA) annual conference booth 1659, SeeFile, a Boston-based start-up, introduced a software package that not only simplifies the process of creating online catalogs, but makes the process and maintenance quite affordable. The Macintosh-based software is aimed at photographers, designers, and smaller graphic arts shops who seek a means of displaying their work and interacting with customers on the Internet.
Traditional solutions have cost as much as $50,000; the SeeFile system is being introduced at PMA for an early adopter"s special price of less than $1,000.

The company“s latest development brings online technology well within the reach of most small and midsize photo labs, as well as individual professional and even pro-sumer photographers. John Harrington, a successful pro photographer based in Washington, DC, with customers as diverse as the Washington Post and XM Satellite Radio, has been an early adopter of SeeFile for his office. ”The product is amazing at what it does, and the company is always adding new functionality. With SeeFile, my sites just update when I save files to my server, and my customers can browse thumbnails, view previews, download and even post comments for me from any Web browser. Clients download high-res images while I“m off to the next photo shoot. SeeFile closed the gap from several stopgap measures.”
“For many photographers, designers and service shops, the key to success lies in showing their work on the Web, and in receiving large file uploads the same way”, noted SeeFile President Sam Bogoch. “Our aim was to create a solution that just about any graphic arts pro could adopt and use without investing heavily in both time and dollars. SeeFile 1.5 does just this, while providing the features that allow users to go beyond just posting their work online.”
SeeFile 1.5 Features
SeeFile 1.5 software allows users an easy pathway to online catalogs while also offering:
- Images can be drag-n-dropped into the website for easy set up and updating.
- Control of access to defined image and file groups, so that viewers only see the images and files the owner needs them to;
- Messaging capabilities so service providers can easily message clients about job status, guide clients to specific images on the system, or alert clients to new updates;
- Search features that allow clients to search the complete website (that they have access to) for images, text, and other updates;
- An easy expansion path for users to grow the system to larger workgroup and corporate configurations, without retraining or reinstallation.
Special Mac mini Bundle
SeeFile and its dealers worldwide are pre-installing the software on Mac mini systems and delivering the turnkey solution to customers. For PC-based networks, the Mac mini offers a simple solution which can be easily used to host the SeeFile software. Clients can access the website from any platform.
