The Basics of Event Photo Software

Dec 23, 2007
Taking photographs for people can be a great way to make a living. For the person who has a passion for photography, such a career can be a dream come true. There are a lot of well paying fields within photography, though one that is often overlooked is that of event photography. Event photography is a field in which people can make a great living taking photographs. However, it's not a field for the highly inexperienced photographer, as it does take some work to master, as well as organizational skills. Event software can make event photography much easier for the beginner, as you're about to find out.

What is Event Photo Software?

If you know what event photography is, you should have a pretty good idea of what event photo software is. If not, you'll find out now. Event photo software programs are programs which serve to make event photography a bit easier. They help with organizing the photos (which is very important because event photos need to stay in a certain order so that they "flow" well), naming pictures and much more. To put it simply, event software speeds up the process of actually managing event photographs. It's like having an automated software do all the repetitive, mundane work for you.

Should I Use Event Photo Software?

That's an excellent question that many curious event photographers wonder about. The question of whether or not to use event software is heavily debated in photography forums. Most of the time the answer to this question is that yes, you should use event photo software. We'll give you 5 reasons why.

Reason #1: Professional Looking Photos

Professionalism is of the utmost importance in event photography. People are paying you to take high quality event photographs, so it's important to make sure your photographs adhere to this high standard. Event photo software can actually help you do this. That's because you can use event software to edit pictures and make them look better and more professional. For instance, there are event photo software programs specifically created for wedding pictures. These help a photographer to make this type of image look its absolute best.

Reason #2: Slideshows

A common bonus event photographers offer to their customers is that of the slideshow burnt to a DVD. Believe it or not but event photo software programs also help with the creation of slideshows. You can use such a program to quickly and easily create a great slideshow complete with animation and transition effects. These will be very appealing to customers, making event software a great choice for this reason alone.

Reason #3: The Ability to Create a Gallery

When you are showcasing your photos to the customer and letting them pick which they want printed out, it's a good idea to have them arranged in a gallery. Obviously, doing this manually can be a bit of a chore. First you have to get all the photos together. Then you have to create a great looking gallery. Finally, you add the photos in and arrange them. For the busy photographer (and most of them are busy), this can be a daunting task. Event photo software automates the process and creates a gallery right away. The nice thing about event software is that it not only creates the gallery, but also allows photographers to choose between several different designs, thus allowing them to customize their gallery.

Reason #4: Online Photos

As you can tell, there are many great things about event photo software. Yet another one is that some event software programs will automatically upload the photos to a web site for you. This definitely saves a lot of time as uploading photos manually can take hours, depending on the size, not to mention all the design work involved in putting up a web site and online photo gallery. That's why using event photo software is a good idea.

Reason #5: Organization

Yet another reason to use event software (which is something we already mentioned) is that it helps to make things more organized. You can use the software to keep track of a lot of photos. Have you ever had to keep track of several hundred event photos at once? It's quite a chore, isn't it? Event photo software can do this for you. It can keep a lot of photos organized, and also make naming and captioning photos a breeze. This is the single greatest reason for using event software. It just plain makes the job easier.
