  • I’ve been using Viewbook for a while and honestly I feel Squarespace is better now. Viewbook is slow to make changes and IMHO is getting behind on the curve. Also, there is a major issue when mobile with Viewbook where in the midst of a gallery the “X” to exit back to menu is so tiny that nobody who isn’t familiar can find it. I’ve brought this up to them numerous times over the past year and still it hasn’t changed. Also, SEO integration is much easier with Squarespace now.

    I keep intending to switch over ( I already have my corporate website on Squarespace ) but switching domain and organizing images for the transfer isn’t something I look forward to doing. And besides what I’ve mentioned above the platform is, I would say, fine.

  • I have found them to be a good platform and helpful when I have issues. I am finding the standard program (I don't think they offer this any more) somewhat restrictive. It just allows you one page. I am upgrading at the moment to their pro package so that I can show more written documents like my C.V. , Artist's Statement etc.

    I am not great with this stuff but managed it fairly well over the years!

  • I use Viewbook for my website. To be honest I use it because I haven’t got time to change it. It was great when I built my website quite a few years ago but is quite limiting compared to others out there now. I use it together with STYIST by pictures pro, and that takes care of my shopping cart etc.

    I like the look of view book but I don’t think they have been as fast as others to keep up with advances.

  • i recommend it,

    Went i build my web site viewbook are the best for the price and for photographer. But now, I think they have a other better solution, but i don’t change because my référencement on google with the years are very good.

  • I definitely would recommend view book! Its platform is very “usage friendly” and allow me to make fast change.

  • I would recommend it, the design of the templates are often changing which gives more options, plus the price I think is quite reasonable compared to others.

  • i'm happy with Viewbook. They are very responsive when there are any issues or questions. Only thing I wish was they had more options in customizing the look, maybe I just need a web coder for that? Not sure, but that's the only reason I've considered switching. Otherwise i've ben happy with them.

  • Viewbook is easy to use & is enough flexible for me to build a nice portfolio.

  • I’m very happy working with viewbook.

    It’s limited in the option about lay out but it’s not a bad thing because you don’t waste hours of searching for the right template.

    It’s very easy to use.

    Helpdesk is also very quick in answering questions.

  • I recommend it

  • if you want a simple layout for showcasing a portfolio I would definitely recommend it. In the beginning it takes a while to figure out how everything works and to set it up. But once you've got it set up it is easy to update.

  • I like Viewbook very much - it was a good price and easy to use (after figuring out it's eccentricities) and they have good support

  • I am happy with viewbook. However, as you can see, it's like a photography website, so you can just upload photos and I don't know whether you can have user's engagement as well or not. So if you want to. have just photos, its great. I have another website on Square space, which is more user-friendly.

  • Viewbook is a great portfolio site. I have been using for 3 years with this site and a few years with another one.

    It is very well designed & easy to send to clients for download and gallery links. I think it is a great portfolio design

    that can be changed to the photographers uses. They are very able to help if needed. Viewbook are great!

  • I would recommend it. The service is very good and it is not too difficult in use. If I would make the website more as my own and more distincitive, I am not completely sure if a standard template will be sufficient. But I think there will be option for that within viewbook as well.

  • Not super happy but I’m too lazy to move somewhere else. They don’t have a mobile app, if you share your albums, clients can’t like the pics they want, etc. It’s ok if you just want to display a portfolio. If you are a photographer that needs to interact with clients so they can chose the pictures they want or buy them from you, you are better off with a service like SmugMug which I have for my portraits page.

    If I had to rate viewbook, from 1 to 10, I would give it a soft 5. In my opinion, they are quite expensive for what hey offer.

    Last thing, I have not updated my site in several months so they may have added new features that I am not aware of.

  • I think that their site is very easy to use and really geared to creative professionals.

  • I really like Viewbook! Very clean, simple, easy to use.

  • I think it's a great site to showcase your work with minimal effort in site building as it's almost all plug and play. However, my only complaint is that it's fairly limited as far as features are concerned. Sites like Squarespace make it easy to add forms to contact pages and other little things to make our lives easier but that's not always the case with Viewbook. If you want those extra features you still need to know some coding which kind of defeats the whole purpose of a DIY vendor.

    Otherwise, I think it's really clean and easy to use and they have great support as well.

  • I like this plateforme, it's creative and intuitive And simple!!!

  • It’s just ok. You can tell I haven’t done much with it. It needs a responsive design so it looks good on the desktop web and mobile, which it doesn’t

  • The team is really cool and reactive, available to answer quickly, But they miss some things, like, It difficult to post gifs... So, there some good, and some bad, but more happy than unhappy Let’s say I would rate 7 on 10!

  • Yes, easy to use.

  • I switched my Viewbook site to Squarespace recently, where I have another site. I had a couple of small aesthetic issues that I had a hard time resolving on VB. It was a tough choice because I was really happy with VB. In the end, a little more customization and a lower price won.

  • Viewboook is easy and works well. The minus is the customisation not so flexible. At the end I am satisfied.

  • I’ve been using viewbook for the last five years (I think lol) and I found their interface to be the easiest to use, especially for a person who looks at a webpage and feels super overwhelmed lol. The staff is super helpful and their response time is fantastic. However, this was before I knew about square space. I have also made an account with square space... because I really like the idea of having layout options without having to creat them myself, and they seem to be a bit more contemporary . just waiting to find someone who can look through my images.. organize what should go up.. etc. :)

  • I’ve been using it since 2011. It’s really clean, simple and intuitive. It lacks a blogging feature but they have a solution of linking your tumblr account with it. But other than that, it’s a great tool for online portfolio.

  • I like Viewbook so far. It might be because I’m lazy to look for another/better website but I like the simple design of Viewbook. It fits my aesthetic.

  • I would not recommend it. It can be kind of hard to navigate things and the help that you get when you contact them can take a while.

  • I am happy with most issues with Viewbook except of the price… too expensive

  • I would surely recommend it and did already a few times Very easy to use and manage yourself.

  • I would not recommend Viewbook, they do not offer enough flexibility and I am currently looking to move to another platform or have my own website build.

    With Viewbook there is very little flexibility to work with text and photos without making your own slides in photoshop etc, there are no dropdown menus which could be very useful for me since my work is fairly diverse.

    Overall Viewbook seems like an outdated platform and I think the developers have gotten a little lazy.

  • I would think viewbook is nice and straight forward to use. The range of the layouts are a bit limited but as long as it does what you want then its not a deal breaker. They have added a couple new styles since i joined which is nice but it's a shame that support of the ipad offline portfolio app doesnt appear to have continued.

    That was a nice feature of the site. Other than that it appears to have a nice mobile version that scales well and organisrs your site in a logical and clean manner.

    Cost wise. I dont know how competivitve it is anymore and as Ive not tried other types of competitiors i cant comment on the relative ease of use.

    For me it seems easy and quick and i can smash out a wedding client site or new project album in no time.

    Recommend. Sure but i dont know if they are as cutting edge as they used to be.

  • Viewbook is ok, could be better, especially tekst layouts, but it is not expensive. I don’t do al lot with it.

  • I have used viewbook for 4.5 years, it seems to work just fine. Easy to make, simple to upkeep, no bells and whistles but, gets the job done. I bet there is better out now but viewbook works fine enough.
