Selecting Favorite Photos Made Simple

Photos can be selected by viewing gallery thumbnail pages and using Zenfolio’s powerful multiple-selection functionality, or selecting large images one-by-one. Images can further be sorted using a drag-and-drop interface to create an organized sequence list, such as for an album or a slideshow. Photographers can then convert their client’s favorite selections into Zenfolio Collections to create virtual galleries, giving them a streamlined flow for communicating effectively with their clients.
This Premium feature allows photographers and their clients to collaborate in real time over the favorites’ lists which are useful for refining purchasing selections, downloading original files, deleting undesirable photos, and a lot more.
