Get easier proofing and faster approvals on your photos.
Receive feedback on any file type — from images to audio files — from your own branded, mobile-friendly dashboard.
Free online proofing for photographers really can be a reality. Ashore’s online proofing platform finally gives photographers the tools to collect the feedback they need and approve proofs faster. You’ll no longer lose valuable feedback in your inbox or waste work time sending follow-up emails to nail down approvers. Ashore automates the entire process for you! Ashore is incredibly intuitive to use. Our streamlined design and functionality only takes minutes for you to master, and your approvers won’t need an account or login to get started. All you need to do to begin proofing is upload your files – Ashore supports all major file types for photos as well as videos, documents, HTML and more. You can upload as many photos as you need to in a single proof, too.
Once you’ve chosen what to send, you can configure your workflow. Workflows can be saved and reused in the future, considerably speeding up the setup process. Ashore automatically takes your proof through the workflow in the sequence you’ve specified. You can also send to a single approver or a group of approvers at once for unstructured collaboration. Set automated reminders to occur as frequently as needed until your approvers do their part in the proofing process. When it’s their turn, each approver has several tools to help them best communicate their feedback.
Threaded comments and markup tools are made directly on your photos, reducing confusion and putting feedback in context. Conversations can now stay right where they need to be: with your photographs. Our users have an enormous amount of flexibility to customize the approval process for their own purposes. You can opt to prohibit approvers from downloading photos or from seeing other approver comments. Email templates allow you to customize the emails sent from Ashore, and they can be saved for quick retrieval later. Custom checklists help you help your approvers be better proofers and feel more confident in their approvals.
And we can’t say this enough: Ashore is free! Photographers already have a lot to juggle, and with Ashore, you’ll finally have a system that manages some of these processes for you. Sign up today and start getting your proofing process in order!
Projects get approved faster in Ashore! Our automation tools allow your team to set up and save flexible workflows for every kind of proof. Just add your approval stages, select approvers, and append your white-labeled email templates.
When you start a workflow on a proof, every approver in stage one will receive an email asking for their review. When all users have approved the proof, it will automatically be sent to the next stage. If anyone forgets to review the proof, we’ll automatically remind them!
Your approvers don’t need to know who we are. Ashore allows you to white-label every part of our software that interfaces with your approvers — custom domains, logos, integrated email, and custom styles on your review dashboards. Now you can truly make the proofing process your own and give your approvers a curated experience from start to finish.
We track everything automatically. You have a beautiful (exportable!) audit log of every approver’s decision, comment, email and new version. Keep your proofs color-coded, taggable, and well organized.View More
Require your approvers to sign off on your custom checklists before they can submit a decision on a proof. Add requirements like, “I approve this to go live” or “I have checked for spelling and errors.”View More
If your approvers forget to review your proofs, Ashore will take care of that. Easily integrate your email to Ashore and email signature, then set your reminder settings for your approvers.View More
