It’s just over 2 years since Mike Browne introduced our unique, world first, free to use, paid per view photo hosting platform to the World on his Youtube channel. 90% of online tech startups rarely last 18 months, OK we’re not that much older than that but we have got passed it! ClickASnap, since it’s first public launch has been through massive changes. We have completely redesigned the site, beefed up our servers, introduced user shops and added a whole plethora of features as well as our own proprietary image display technology. We are currently in discussion with several Venture capital firms in Silicon valley and who knows where we will be next year! To keep our users and investors updated Mike Browne interviewed me again and this can be seen in the video below. If you have any questions, would like to invest, or just want to say ‘hi’ please reach out and contact me at [email protected]

In this short video Mike Browne explores the mistakes most commonly made by beginner photographers, why not post your most comment mistake in the comments below?
One of the many things i love about building this platform is the amount of technology available to us. Today we launch Amazon Rekognition integration into our free photo hosting platform. Why are we doing this? Well, it turns out that 95% of our users do not tag photos properly, if photos are not tagged properly then they can’t be found either by our users, or by search engines. This then of course means we are hosting a lot of content that never sees the light of day, this in turn drains our resources. What does Amazon Rekognition do? It takes your image, dissects it and recognises objects in the photo, it then sends us a list of tags which we then allocate to the image, then, add into the on page SEO ensuring that if you upload a photo of a turtle next to a tree and some grass, then the search engines see, that it is in fact, a picture of a turtle next to a tree and some grass! This of course then reflects in higher organic traffic rankings and more people seeing your content, you get more views, and in turn earn more revenue for your […]
