7 Reasons To Switch to Squarespace 7

Does your site - your major presence on the web - need a make over? Do your images look as good as can be - on your web pages and in your on-line galleries? Is it easy and fun to update your site? Does your site look original and creative? If you have a technical problem, is customer support there to help - 24/7?

No? Look no further: check out Squarespace 7. A free trail is only one-click away.

(Speaking of clicking: Click on the images here to enlarge - another cool feature of  Squarespace.)

Here are my top 7 reasons why I use and recommend Squarespace 7. (Squarespace 7 will the default interface beginning on December 8, 2014.)

1) Live editing - you see what you get. In other words, as you create/edit, you see your results as the viewer see them. How cool is that!

2) You have quick and easy access to creative and customizable templates. Several new templates were added with the introduction of Squarespace 7.

3) Sites look great on any device – so your work is presented in the best possible way on desktops, laptops, iPads, iPhones, or any other device. You can even preview how a page will look on a device.

4) There's a free app – Portfolio - that lets you move your galleries from your desktop to your mobile device simply by downloading the app. You can customize you galleries, too!

5) Galleries look awesome. A screen grab of my Memories of Myanmar gallery is shown above.

6) It's an all-in-one site – so your blog, galleries, events, store and so on are all in one easy-to-manage and updatable place. Checking stats is easy, too.

7) Customer support is 24/7 – so if you need help, it's away there.

Of course, there are more reasons to choose Squarespace. Those are just my top seven.

Thank you all for following along during my most recent blog post series: Six Days of Canon EOS 6D Images from Route 66. You can scroll down to see the individual posts. Each post includes photo tips that will help you make better pictures.

One of the reasons why I was able to post every day for the road: the ease in which Squarespace is designed.

Squarespace lets me (and you) quickly and easily drag and drop photos into a post and even edit the photos within the platform. Editing, moving pictures up and down, and adding links are a snap. What's more, all this is fun!I

Above is an image from Chloride, AZ that I did not include in the series. I enhanced the image with the Polaroid Transfer filter in Nik Color Efex Pro. All my plug-ins are listed on my Plug-ins page.

Tip: Adding a creative filter can remove some of the reality from an image. When you remove some of the reality, your picture can look more creative.
