Clients usually want to be able to add photos to their websites, so it is easier to have albums on Facebook that show off projects. This way, clients can add photos any time in the future. The website can link to the Facebook albums for free.
Photo galleries are time consuming because each photo needs to be sized for the spot on the website for consistency and optimization, which assists load times. You want fast load times because people are impatient with a 3-second attention span and search engines rank partly based on this factor.
Fully customized, hard-coded websites like our landing page and the unique ones shown in the gallery are still available from ikan-ikon.
PHOTO GALLERY PRICING
$5 per photo, per type of gallery or page
The price includes perfecting the photo with retouching, removing blemishes and things that don't look good, and resizing per location.
Custom websites require a lot of coding and set up, so the fees are higher for custom sites than CMS sites. Additional benefits of each are:
- Custom galleries can be formatted in any style and positioning almost any way you like.
- You can add photo to CMS galleries yourself or add more easily, which is cheaper to maintain.
Static Photo Galleries
These are photos that sit on the page in their spot and are not clickable or moving.
Multimedia Photo Galleries
These galleries have a video effect that automatically goes through pictures without needing to click on them.
