Dropmark: Create Simple, Gorgeous Collections

Dropmark is a gorgeous, dead-simple way to create online collections. Of course, there are innumerable ways to share collections of images, files, and the like on the web. A couple of built-in features make Dropmark stand out from the crowd.

As I said, it's simple. Dead simple. After creating an account, you'll be presented with a screen that looks like this:

To create a collection, either click the "+" button on the page, or simply drag-and-drop "photos, videos, documents, websites, text snippets, and more" into the window from your desktop or web browser, and voila! Your collection is automatically backed up in the cloud, and presented in a clean, uncluttered, and seductive interface:

From here, you can choose to keep your collection private (handy to simply keep collections backed up and easily accessible from any web browser), or you can share the collection via the drop-down menu in the top right corner. This is an especially useful feature. Many sites allow you upload photos or files and share them, but none do this so simply as Dropmark, and few give the personalized touch when you share a collection. Sharing on Facebook, Flickr and similar sites allow you to upload and wait for your friends or followers to find the items. Dropmark makes the process more personal, as you must choose specifically who to share collections with. Collaborators can then add items to a collection if you give them permission to do so, an incredibly handy feature for things like group trips or events. Instead of everyone having so many photos scattered across their various profiles, you can put them all in one place. They also have a built-in url shortener to easily post your collection via social media or email.

There's not much else to say about Dropmark, and that's the beauty of it. It's simple and gorgeous, two qualities that will always get our seal of approval. Currently, Dropmark is in private beta. If you'd like an invite, just send us an email.
