It requires no additional equipment—just download the app to your phone or tablet.

We designed the Dashboard App to help you be free. Not just from tethers, paper order forms, and data entry, but also from feeling tied to your desk. With the Dashboard App (iOS, Android) for both your mobile device and watch, you can step away from your computer without disconnecting from your studio—let us tell you when you’ve made a new sale!

Looking to achieve consistent head sizing when exporting images for yearbooks and service items? Enter: the auto-crop feature. Auto-crop is a service offered by PhotoDay to help streamline your export workflow in private galleries. It uses AI (artificial intelligence) to recognize a face in a photo, then crops the image so that all head sizes are the same.

Ordering and Personalization Made Easy
Each gallery type allows you to sell 100% online (no more order forms) with PhotoDay’s customer storefront. Customers can access their photos and buy packages and products with ease right from their phone or computer. They can then customize themes, text, crops, and more during the checkout process! The best part? As soon as your customers place their order, it’s sent to the lab for fulfillment, leaving you free to focus on what you do best—taking amazing photos.

FaceFind is PhotoDay’s facial clustering technology that makes finding, matching, and grouping photos together a breeze. It’s a game-changing tool that is sure to save you countless hours of paperwork and keeping track of who’s who. FaceFind functions as a customer-facing search tool in Group and Public Galleries. In Private Galleries, FaceFind works behind the scenes with the Capture App to help you leave manual data matching in the past.

Customers expect to see a preview of their products before purchasing, especially for products like memory mates, buttons, and other various themed items. These previews display any theming options, background choices, photos, text, and crops selected during the customer’s customization process. Live preview offers peace of mind for customers and fewer reprints for labs and studios.

Sell products branded specifically to the organization you’re photographing with custom memory mate themes. While PhotoDay provides our own collection of beautiful custom theme options, studios are also able to create and upload their own designs. This is a great addition to woo and wow both customers and organizations alike.

Looking for extractions? PhotoDay’s knockouts service has you covered. We already know image is king when it comes to selling online, and offering a variety of images matters when it comes to keeping consumers happy. You won’t have to pick and choose which poses to knock out and offer to your customers. Let them choose the ones they love, instead!

The backgrounds feature enables studios to upload multiple collections of custom backgrounds, allowing customers to mix and match poses and backgrounds for packages and products with a simple swipe and preview. Studios can also upload a combination of JPG images and PNG images to the same gallery. This encourages multipose purchases, higher AOVs, and overall happy, creative customers.

Retouching is a feature that magically softens skin, reduces acne, unwanted blemishes, and more. Studios can add retouching to any price sheet, and it will show up during the checkout process for customers to add on to any or all of the photos in their cart.

Automated Marketing from Beginning to Delivery
AdvancePay (AP) is PhotoDay’s answer to traditional pre-pay. Whereas with paper forms, parents would select their photo packages and pay before photos were taken—with AdvancePay, customers can purchase credits before picture day that they can apply to their photo order after picture day. For photographers, this means you can lock in early sales without limiting future sales. For customers, they get to buy in with an AP purchase, sign up for text notifications, and receive an offer specifically for AP purchasers.

PhotoDay’s smart text marketing is a free, automatic feature using SMS (short message service). All you have to do is instruct your customers on how to opt-in to a gallery by texting their access code to 90738 and/or by clicking “Subscribe” in the gallery. Once opted-in, customers receive various notifications including when the gallery is published, special offers, reminders to order, order confirmation, shipping info, and more!

Drop + Bulk Shipping
PhotoDay offers 3 types of shipping options. Drop shipping is a direct-to-door solution and the default shipping option within PhotoDay. Customer orders are shipped directly to their door once fulfilled by the lab. With direct delivery, customers can enjoy their photos even sooner. We also offer a bulk shipping option for private galleries. Studios can offer free overnight bulk shipping (which ships all orders directly to one chosen address) or let the customer choose how they would like to receive their orders via drop shipping (which ships as fast as they want to their own address).
