PixProof – Easy Photo Proofing for Photographers


PixProof is a custom WordPress plugin that is meant to ease the way photographers interact with their clients. It allows you to have a protected straight forward environment to discuss and proof photos from photo shootings, all in a interactive, AJAX based, interface.

PixProof Gallery Demo #1 (use ‘demo’ as password)

It is a simple to use plugin that uses a Custom Post Type called Proof Galleries to help you manage your «clients» galleries separated from other post types you may have around (like regular galleries or projects).

These can be either public galleries (you will use the fact that the URL is not public and provide it only to your client) or password protected galleries (this is the recommended way) and you will provide the URL and the password to your individual clients (you can even make them private galleries – it is up to you).

Apparently this is designed to only work with specific premium themes from the same developer and explicitly designed to not work with all wordpress sites.

Use a different plugin as this one has some major issues. – Created galleries display as 404 Error – If you can ever get it to show the gallery the layout is broken and doesn’t appear like it does in the demo. I tried this with multiple themes and the results are the same everytime.

Installed PixProof because the demo of it looked perfect. Unfortunately, permalinks to the proof gallery I created don’t work. I just get a 404 error. It’s a shame, but it seems the developers have abandoned this project.
