Sometimes you may have a client from out of town or an extremely busy buyer who wants a digital preview of homes prior to physically touring. Maybe it’s not a buyer, maybe it’s a seller who has already moved across the country and you need to send 100 pictures of the aftermath of a storm.
Enter GalleryHosted.com which is a free website that allows you to bulk upload pictures and gives you a URL to share. Users can see all of the pictures on the unique URL or can download them all with one click. After you upload the images, you are given HTML code to embed the gallery on your site (great for sharing a lot of pics on your blog without having to manually upload each) and the HTML code to embed individual images so you have options. Click “go to the gallery” and you’ve got your URL to share.
This solution replaces the FTP and zip options of the past. We tested it out and uploading was ridiculously fast, at least twice as fast as uploading pics to Facebook. The unsexy news is that there are ads on the page, but the tool is free so I guess you get what you pay for.
