I’ve been told about a new photo sharing web application called Folio.ink founded by Michael Connors which I think might be interesting to readers of this blog. Michael Connors was also the original creator of Morguefile.com
Folio.ink allows users to upload images and automatically creates a polished photo gallery housed in a shareable URL—all without a login. There is no sign-in or membership required to use the free platform.
Michael built Folio.ink to help him send images assets to his coworkers, and soon realized the many uses for a simplified photo sharing platform.
“Folio.ink is a straightforward, elegant, design-based solution to a common problem, with tremendous potential,” says Michael Connors, founder of Folio.ink. “Think of it as a micro portfolio platform.”
Because users of Folio.ink don’t need to register to upload images, it makes sharing photos and images between people easy without the need for both parties having to register to do so first. All files uploaded can only be viewed and accessed with the URL for that specific album. Folio.ink creates a presentation deck with a unique URL that can be easily shared.
Users are also given the option to rearrange the image order, delete images and share the presentation by email or text. A special url is provided to return to the gallery to edit at another time. The gallery expires after 90 days and is limited to 50 images.
