More and more you’ll find yourself not being the only photographer at an event. Divvyshot offers a simple way to not only share your own pictures, but to create open albums others can contribute their event photos to.
Divvyshot has a painless one-step signup process — it’s right on their front page, no annoying email confirmation! — and a polished and easy to use interface. Nearly all the settings for your albums are represented as icons across the top of your album page: click the padlock to lock the album so only friends can contribute to it, click the person icon to lock viewing the album to friends, click the globe to share your photos on Twitter, Facebook, Divvyshot and with email notifications.
You can easily view the photos in the album in a variety of ways like by who uploaded them, what activity is going on at the event, or view the whole album. Uploading is fairly standard unless you’re sporting a browser that supports HTML 5 like the new version of Firefox, then you can — as the screenshot above demonstrates — drag and drop pictures right out of folders on your computer and into the album.
The strongest selling point for Divvyshot is the ease-of-use factor. The interface is simplistic, the next step needed to complete a task is clear, and it definitely passes the non-techie relative test — if Uncle Bill can check his email he should have no problem uploading pictures to Divvyshot.
