Creating a photography blog is not a big deal these days. There are various platforms that Photographers use, like WordPress, Joomla etc.. However, you need to add your best photos manually, that waste lots of your time. Some Photographers also use Facebook, Flickr or Instagram to upload their photos. It’s easy to upload your photos there, but when you are asked to show your best photos, you get lost among so many photos you have uploaded. This is where Siftr can help you.
