1. JPEG Mini

JPEG mini is a great place to compress your photo to the smallest size possible, without losing detail. This is perfect for photographers who want to increase the loading speed of a website or save space on your hard drive.

It’s not a free service, but for the current price is worth the money if you take a lot of photos. There are also plugins available so you can use the software directly in Photoshop and Lightroom.

3. Narrative

Narrative is a clean and simple online tool to help you narrow down your photo selection, similar to Lightroom. With built-in AI features such as automated removal of images with closed eyes or blurry shots, Narrative can help you skip the duds before you reach them. You can also build a blog using the Narrative Publish feature too.

4. Photo Joiner

We love Photo Joiner! It’s such a simple website to use to create collages of photos. It’s free, which is another bonus. Select up to 8 images to blend into a template and download them to your device hassle-free.

5. Shoot Proof

Shoot Proof is one of the best online tools for photographers who want to grow their business. It simplifies the hassle of building a gallery that your clients can view with their own private passwords. They can mark their favourite shots and even download selected images.

Though this makes the sales process less face-to-face, it’s potentially easier for both parties. Wedding photographers for example, find online gallery services great for guests to purchase images without having to meet directly.

7. Loom

If you’re liaising with clients, showing off how you do your edits or wanting to make a photography tutorial then Loom could answer all your prayers.

Loom allows you to record video messages alongside screen captures which gives you a visual (and potentially more helpful) answer for your audience. It’s free to use and there are also paid levels to increase the features.

Canva is massive, probably one of the best online tools for photographers who want absolute consistency in their social media posts but without spending ages designing templates.

You’ll find hundreds of free templates to drop your photos on and they’re all optimised for different social channels. If you’re not a graphic designer but like a stylised look to your Instagram stories or Twitter fleets then Canva is packed with solutions for you.
