Control image downloads and download sizes, publication dates, slideshow settings and much more.
Client Panels & Lightboxes
The FolioLink Image Archive gives your clients a full featured lightbox to maintain their image selections.

The Image Archive version that comes with the PRO Account includes a comprehensive client request workflow making it easy for you to keep on top of inquiries and quotes.
Create Many Client Only Areas
Your registered users gain access to a client panel where they can manage their assigned folders, saved lightboxes, orders, inquiries, quote and update their account information. You may setup private folders that require an existing user account (username and password) or group folders that require a passcode to access contents.

Large Content Delivery
The FolioLink Image Archive allows you to deliver content in a variety of ways. With folder permissions you can control whether your users can access download and enlarge view links. The pricing module allows you to specify the content delivered at the time of sale (sell by pixel dimensions, send original size, etc.) Lightbox permissions let you control the size of image downloads inside a lightbox and much more.
Our current storage implementation uses a hybrid model. Large and original files which can be made available for download are stored in the cloud using Amazon's scalable and highly redundant S3 storage architecture. Image Archive website display content such as thumbnails, and web images are stored in a tier 1 data center for fast and redundant availability.

Our system even allows you to meter large content such as video or sound files - perfect for people creating video or sound archives.
Cloud Benefits
Upload up to 500MB uncompressed files such as videos, TIFs, PDFs or MP3s. Deliver content using one of the most sophisticated content delivery networks in the world. The FolioLink Image Archive file duplication feature allows you to create a snapshot in time. Not only can you rely on the cloud's redundancy but now FolioLink's Image Archive also allows you to take a snapshot in time.

The FolioLink Image Archive with Amazon Cloud integration can manage sites with up to 30,000 distinct items. JPG files can range up to 12 MB and other file types can go up to 400 MB . The standard Image Archive that is part of the Pro Account allows up to 5,000 files at 3.5MB each.
Christopher Barr Photography
Featured Story

Christopher Barr is has been a professional photographer for over 20 years. From the jungles of the Amazon to the studios of Hollywood, his portraiture and commercial photography is published and syndicated world wide.

My web site is the heart of my business‚ marketing effort. It is more than just a place to park my portfolios...it is a reflection of me as a artist and as a businessman. I thought my needs could only be met by a custom web site and the substantial investment of time, energy and money that required.

I was wrong.

FolioLink has proven itself to be a far better solution. The intelligent design, creative flexibility, ease of updating and responsive support turned me from skeptic to believer very quickly.

Switching to FolioLink feels like one of the best decisions I've ever made.
