December 2016Yes, we've started our own blog! Check it out here: https://www.slickpic.com/blog.
We are very lucky that many talented photographers in our community are contributing to the blog. This new blog covers all photography related topics, from How-To's to the Art of Photography and tips for Professionals. Please visit the blog, read, learn and leave comments.
November 2016SlickPic was accepted in to Verizon’s early adopters program and completely switched over to the HHTP/2 protocol. We are the first photo sharing company to switch to the new protocol. The benefits - speed and security and freed up browser resources which is great for our clients!
October 2016Switched from Akamai to Verizon CDN (Content Delivery Network). What's a CDN? It's a worldwide chain of local servers that cache photos so they are delivered as fast as possible to a user's computer or smart phone. We're seeing a overall 10% speed improvement over Akamai CDN and our speed of loading photos in computer browsers is faster than any of our competitors. Excellent!
March 2016Switched to a new billing system. It has advantages to our users, including option of changing payment methods, when needed. All new account upgrades are now going through the new billing system. The old premium accounts will keep using the old system - no need for users to make changes, however if they do, they will be switched to the new system.
August 2016We've made our galleries even slicker. We've minimized the menus that cluttered the screen, leaving most of the screen real estate available for your photos. The scrolling of photos and albums has become easier, too. Check it out! We hope you like our new Gallery.
We've been working on the overall system optimization to make SlickPic even faster and completely error free.
May 2015Custom domain names
Every premium customer is already enjoying domains personalized with their screen names, but now you can forward your personal domain to your gallery, so your web address could look like this: YourPersonalDomain.com.
Create your own graphic watermark, upload it, and set it any way you want. You’ll have the option to add your personal watermark to your photos during upload.
New premium memberships
We’re introducing new premium memberships with even more features. Don’t worry, if you already have a membership plan you like, you’ll be able to keep it for as long as you want. (We mean that.)
March 2014We've introduced the new Portfolio. The Portfolio is a place for your best photos. You can manage them the same way you manage albums and collections.
We've optimized the Organizer. It loads much faster and looks much better now.
We've modified our upload by email. In addition to the one we've always had in Accounts, we've added it as an option to Group Upload. Just go the Album Menu in Organizer and select Group Upload. An email address that allows you to send photos to a specific album will become available. If you have an event like a wedding or a party at work, just print out the email address and put it on the tables. Your friends will be able to email photos from this event directly into your album.
February 2014We've stopped showing ads in the galleries of Free users but to compensate, we've had to limit the number of uploads for Free users.
We've added the new Wallpaper View. Now you can see large photo thumbnails in the correct aspect ratio. This is a good addition to the Square view for albums and collections.
We've added an option to invite friends to SlickPic. After logging in, you'll see the "Invite Friend" card on your Dashboard.
January 2014Introducing Show and Tell:
Show and Tell is like getting your friends together in your living room and showing them a slideshow. Only instead of trying to gather everyone together, you just send them a link to view your live presentation. And unlike a video conference, Show and Tell doesn't require a good internet connection, so you can invite anyone to view it — even on their phone! You can narrate along with your photos over the phone or via Skype.
December 2013Put it into print!
SlickPic has just partnered with KODAK to provide our users with in-store printing. Just submit your print order to the store nearest you and pick it up the same day. While this service is currently only available in North America, more stores worldwide are coming soon!
Need help printing? Check out the How to Print via the KODAK Photo Service here.

August 2013SlickPic released its new Exhibit feature, allowing users to showcase their best work like never before; Explore, which lets users browse public galleries in beautiful quality by clicking on the Explore button at the top of the page; and Portfolio, which gives artists individual public profile pages for their Exhibit work.
