NEW: even faster downloads

We have always been very proud to offer you super fast uploads and downloads at PicDrop. However, that hasn’t stopped us from taking another step forward with today’s update.

The exact speed advantage of ZIP downloads of whole galleries or selections of images depends on the gallery size, but for most galleries there will be a significant speed advantage, especially when the gallery is downloaded for the first time.

NEW: Intuitive downloads on iPhone

We are silently improving PicDrop every day, to improve the experience of PicDrop for your customers. Our main goal is always to make you look good.

PicDrop.de goes PicDrop.com

From November, 28th 2019 onwards PicDrop.de will be PicDrop.com.

That way you will finally be able to use PicDrop with international clients and your galleries will use a .com domain link instead of the .de domain link.

The change will affect new galleries only. Existing gallery links will of course remain accessible and will be automatically redirected to the new address. You don’t need to do anything.

New on the team: Paula

Hey Everyone!

My name is Paula and I just became a part of the PicDrop Support team as of July 1st.
Good customer support is really important to me and I want PicDrop customers to experience just the best. I am already looking forward to putting a smile on the faces of all PicDrop customers.

Aside from providing exceptional support, I am also a nurse (so PicDrop “accidents” aren’t the only things I can patch up!). I have a Bachelors degree in Healthcare and Nursing Management.

I like to travel around the world and I’m fascinated by Asia and the US. I love the sun and fries are my spirit animal.

I’m really looking forward to being part of this team and support you in any way possible! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at hello@picdrop.com!

PS: Looking for a new job opportunity? Want to work with a very nice and friendly team? Fancy a shiny new office? You’re in luck, we’re hiring!
