With an ever-expanding selection of community-based services and subscriptions to choose from, it can be difficult to find a platform that feels like your own and where your rights as a photographer are respected and protected. Let's dig into dig into why YouPic has grown into one of the most trusted home for photographers, and why celebrated and respected names such as Steve McCurry, Joel Meyerowitz, Adam Hinton, and David Yarrow utilize YouPic Pro's subscription in their photography work.
Once you visit YouPic.com, you will instantly feel the love on the site with a community that currently consists of over 3.7 million users from all over the world. It is the perfect tool for professionals as well as beginners as it offers the possibility to get international exposure for your work, grow your brand, find clients, learn key skills, meet new people, be inspired, and evolve as a photographer, both professionally and artistically.
YouPic offers the ultimate platform for those who want to fully embrace the art of photography without being interrupted by advertisements or worry about your personal data being sold. It seems like there's intentionality behind each picture that's shared rather than mass postings that are common on other photo-based social media platforms. It seems like YouPic takes its users seriously as well, which is reflected on Trustpilot, where YouPic is rated higher than Flickr and 500px.
One of the many things that reflects this trust is that YouPic views copyright as the most important issue of all photography-related questions. You do not have to be wary regarding the rights to your work when posting it to YouPic since they never claim the rights to your images. Your work will always be yours.
One thing I appreciate about the site is that is solidly designed and is one of the strongest technical platforms for images. You can upload and display high-resolution images faster than some of the largest companies in the world (tip: try Google images vs. YouPic and hold the space key to compare image load times).
With YouPic Pro subscription you gain access to features that are essential for the professional photographer. The subscription allows you to build your own custom domain, website, create a shop to sell you work and prints of your photos. The beauty of this is that it is connected to your YouPic account which means you can update your site very easily or set it to auto-update content for you. It will also boost your website with the organic traffic coming in to your personal website via YouPic. Additionally, you will keep all of your earned profit since YouPic has a 0% commission policy on all sales from your shop, the way it should be.
