What is the history and popularity of the app?

Sharypic was founded in 2011 by Fracois-Joseph Grimault, Martin Fourcade and Christian Blavier. The application was designed to make it much easier to share personal photos take at special events. Users can share photos easily online without having to pass around a disc, file or actual photograph. The current version also includes handy privacy settings that can prevent unwanted viewing of images that the user wants to keep private within a smaller group.

What are the differences to other apps?

Photo sharing websites seem to be a dime a dozen these days, however Sharypic has a little more to offer the average user. The website caters to users who are uploading images of events. This is a great resource because of the many times internet users turn to the web as a convenient way of sharing photos taken at weddings and other momentous occasions. The user can control who views their images, leave comments and see all photos uploaded by everyone that took pictures at the event rather than the album of just one or two people.

Every step is accessible from the dashboard, whether the user wants to invite friends, add photos or access past photos.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can start a new album by clicking the green “Create Your Event” button along the lower, right hand side of the Sharypic homepage. The user is asked to provide a name for the event and their email address. After submitting the form, the user can pull images from Facebook, Picasa or Flickr or upload them from their computer. This step can be skipped if the user is not ready to begin adding photos yet.
