We get it. Clicking stunning photographs and exploring the world is much more interesting and requires free time. But if your career, self-development, earning cash while taking photos and reaching the Pantheon of photographers is important to you, you'll need one hell of a web builder to do that.

A great idea and a great platform. Still really clunky. Needs more investment in user adaptability

Pros: Wonderful platform for showcasing travel photography. Striking. Sliders are very effective. Map interface is a great way to present the galleries. Lots of ways to interface information with imagery.

Cons: Still a number of glitches and user issues. Lack of user adaptability and control. Text fonts are really random and not changeable which spoils the overall look. Mobile device compatibility and presentation issues. Text often trails off the screen and when scrolling in galleries the selected thumbnail goes dark which detracts from the image. Photlr need to employ a proper English editor for their website and help pages.

Overall: A much better showcase for my travel photography

User feedback helps us handle the issues and improve. That's why it's good to explore Photler to check if we added new features you need and might not be aware already exist - e.g. changing fonts - it's available in 'design' in your user panel and it's totally up to you which one will you use in your portfolio :)

Pros: I like the idea of making some content manager specific for photographers that trip around the world and want to match geography with photography

Cons: The blog is not fully functional, it's quite complicated to use, slow and a little buggy. I wisha simpler and more complete system.

Overall: I make my personal website in a very simple way and the result is beautiful and professional

Comments: Photler is an interesting website to help you create your own journal and showcase at best your travel photos.
Share with others, but also get featured on their main website.
It'd be good to have more templates to become more original from one to another.

Hey Ludovice! :-) Thanks for letting us know your opinion! We're working on new themes - 5th will be horizontal (you can scroll from left to right all website) and 6th will be in the minimalistic style. More more more and even more to come! :-) I'm glad you appreciate our support and ease of use! We won't let you down, that's for sure!

Soon to be a household name!

Comments: I am a new user to Photler so I am still learning my way around. I've had questions along the way but the customer support has been outstanding. Everyone is so lovely to work with and always so eager to help me problem solve. As a new company, they are still working out a few kinks, but they are such a proactive, hardworking and genuinely happy team that I have no doubt that they are on their way to becoming a gold standard in the industry.

Pros: unique platform with incredible design. the BEST platform for travel photography

Cons: can be buggy, ease of use can be frustrating. the watermark being glued to the photo once uploaded is a major con, and has me procrastinating rebuilding from the ground up

Overall: Photler is amazing, and has the potential to be even more amazing. It is unlike any other photo platform I have encountered, and look forward to even more features and functionality as they grow. I look forward to having my site grow with them.

Finally a valuable home for my pictures!

Comments: What I like the most about Photler is that I managed to create my personal website without too much effort :-) Just a few clicks to customize it, upload my pictures and my website came alive - that's fantastic! I definitely fall in love with the interactive map: a simple and brilliant feature to easily travel from a place to another :-) Photler team never leaves you alone if you need some help with technical stuff or anything else - they are really unique :-D in a nutshell, highly recommended to all passionate photographers!

Pros: The design theme

Cons: not as customisable as I wish it could be

Overall: I don't think I have ever met such a fantastic group of human beings running a business as good as these guys. The journey has been amazing since day one and is on for a lifetime! Photler has the humour, kindness, professionalism and perfectionism than any big company can beat. And because they are a start up they still have the luxury to call you by your name (or even nickname) and follow your adventure as excited as you personally are. You are not a ticket amongst millions on their customer support dashboard you are you, unique. And they are so proud of all of their users that you just want to hug them all. On top of the amazing customer experience but they have the expertise of the digital world and are very up to date with the latest trends when it comes to digital so you will be the first in the know when a new functionality is up and running. Basically to cut it short, they grow as fast as you grow and that's where the magic begins. Thank you /

Truth to be said, there is no such thing in the world that can give a company better recommendation than a friend who at the beginning of this journey was a customer. And that's the way we like to keep relationships at Photler - as personal and human as they can be. No formal language, no 'wait till we find some time', no stodgy messages. We stand by you, encourage to dream and develop and we teach you how to build your own personal brand. Thank you, Marion, for those words, they really mean a world for us.

A great way to show off your adventures!

Pros: The geo-location feature on the photos.

Cons: Still needs a little bit of ironing out, but that's what you would expect from a Beta!

Overall: An awesome website builder that helps you create a unique online space to share your travels and to also sell. I really love the simple, yet unique, templates that you can customise to your liking. I especially love the World Map feature! The team at Photler are also an amazing bunch. Whatever problem there is, big or small, they always are there to help in the best way they can. I highly recommend the team at Photler to anybody looking to share their world adventures to the online world!

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it out!

Pros: + design
+ interactive world map
+ inspirations from blog
+ the best support team ever
+ easiness
+ low price

Cons: - no multiple administrators
- no podcast integration

Overall: I tested near 20 web builder before I finally decided to settle down with one of them. Photler won because of the OUTSTANDING support team and the most beautiful design I've ever seen. I love my personal interactive world map where I can pin all destinations I've been to. I love how visitors engage with my journey and my photos, moving from one place to another. And I'm irrevocably in love with blog creator - this is powerful tool, my blog posts look like an online magazine, I can do whatever I want with the size of my photos, divide text into columns, add videos... simply make it look fabulous :-)

I received so much help, encouragement and valuable feedback from the team, that I feel like the part of the family.

I was afraid to start creating my own website, but I managed to do it in two evenings. They have on Photler this import tool that allows you to import your photos from Instagram, Dropbox, Flickr and any other website... so basically, I was having fun while creating :-) Now I regulary add new stuff and I'm so proud of my own website... <3

The pricing is very fair, and I have to admit, I cannot imagine my online presence without Photler. I would pay the double price for such beautiful portfolio.

Thank you so much Ann! Making the experience of creating own website easy and enjoyable was crucial for us. The own website is for photographer one of the most important marketing/business tool, so you cannot ignore the benefits of having your own. But, in the end of the day - you have to love what you do, not only the creative part of being a photographer, but also the technical part - postprocessing and managing websites. Our goal is to make this part absolutely painless. Thank you for your words - they show us, we're on a right track! :-)
