Photographers today have loads of digital options for improving their operations, services, and business: everything from online proofing options to make things easier for their customers, to social media sites dedicated to photography to help them find new clients!
Since we work with many different photographers, from around the UK, we decided it would be helpful to offer a round-up of some of the most helpful tools around the web.
Some of the best digital tools for photographers
1. Design photo albums online
Looking for a simple way to order a high-quality photo album for your clients? Look no further. Colorworld Designer Pro is our own software which allows professional photographers to easily design photo albums, coffee table books and wedding photo books.
This software features simple drag-and-drop ease to move images around and preview different layouts, but also offers 100% flexibility with content, and customisable options like layouts, fonts, overlays and spreads. With built-in proofing tools and a quality assurance feature, your clients will be over the moon with the stunning album you provide after using Colorworld Designer Pro.
2. Photography tutorials

3. Order (high quality!) prints online
Claim access to hundreds of different printed styles and sizes with an online print ordering software: Colorworld Studio Partner. Edit, crop, and rotate the images to ensure that your print is spot on, and then place an order as a batch or for single prints easily online.
4. Market your business
Mums-to-be, brides-to-be and pretty much everybody else is now ‘shopping’ online for a wedding photographer or newborn photographer. If you’re not promoting your photography business online, you’re missing out! We recommend Facebook and Instagram for simple ways to display images you’ve taken. Find us on Facebook for inspiration: https://www.facebook.com/ColorworldImaging/.
5. Professional online image stores
Allow your customers to view all proofs online – and then order their preferred prints with the click of a button. The Image Partner site automatically watermarks images to protect copyright, adds a custom logo, lets you create tailored links from your website, and allows customers to receive the prints directly to their door once they’ve placed an order.
Digitise your photography business with a small, one-off set up fee of £22.50, and easily automate printing with an added four per cent commission of sales.
