PhotoShelter transforms the way image makers and businesses communicate their stories and manage their visual assets online. With over 80,000 professional photographers and 70 brands hosting 200 million files, we accomplish this through two image management solutions: PhotoShelter for photographers and Libris for enterprises.
In 2005, we were pioneers in launching the first cloud-based product for individual photographers to showcase, archive and sell their work. It offers beautiful websites, secure storage, plus over 100 professional-grade features to help photographers take their businesses to the next level. Our latest product, Libris, is a centralized image management platform that helps businesses quickly, easily and affordably harness the power of their visual content -- anytime, anywhere.
