My clients know, I don’t deliver photos on DVD’s or by email anymore. I use a website called Pixieset, which offers private, password protected galleries for my clients. The great thing about Pixieset is, not only that it is modern and easy to use, it’s also great for viewing, sharing, downloading as well as ordering professional prints and canvas.
All from the comfort of your personal computer, smart phone, or tablet. This blogpost is how to download your digital files.
Step 1: Go to your Pixieset gallery. You will receive an email with the link and password once your images are ready for viewing or downloads.
Step 2: Click on the Download icon. It’s the icon between the Favorite (heart) button and the Share button; it looks like a downward pointing arrow on a rectangle.
Step 3: Enter your email address and the 4 digit PIN that was sent to you. This way you can download the full gallery or individual photos.
You can also select where you would like the download to be sent when it's ready - to your Computer as a .ZIP file, or directly to yourr Dropbox or Google Photos account. The email address provided will only be used to notify them when your .ZIP file of images is ready to be Downloaded (in case you do not wish to wait on the Download page for this to be completed). The email you receive will also include the link you will need to access your images, and Download the .ZIP file to your computer. Piexieset does not email you for any other reason.
Step 4: Choose what size you’d like the images to download in. The choices are Web Size – perfect for sharing on social media! These files usually have a logo on the bottom side. Or High Resolution – for printing even large files! Make sure that you order your prints with a semi professional lab, like MPix. But I would be happy to tell you more about the printed products I offer, to get the highest quality prints and wall art.
Once you’ve decided which size you’d like, click Download! The next screen will pop up saying that your photos are being fetched and soon another download button will appear.
Step 5: You will receive the Gallery Download in a .ZIP file format on your computer, which you can unzip/extract to get the .jpg image files inside. If you select Dropbox or Google Photos, the images will be available to view directly from your account. If you are using Single Photo Download to Download select individual images, it will save the .jpg file directly to your computer or mobile device.
Enjoy your photos!!
