Using page passwords to share your clients’ photos

Recommended Posts

Did you know that you could add a password to any of your Squarespace site’s pages? That can come in handy if you’re a photographer and need to share a set of photos with your clients. 

Let’s say you’re a wedding photographer and have a bunch of photos to share. You can create a page on your site, add all of the photos, and style it how you’d like. Then you can password protect the page and share the URL along with the password to your clients. They can then log themselves in to enjoy and download their photos. Here’s some more information about adding page passwords

Have you tried this or something else to share photos with your clients? Let us know in the comments!

This is a great feature. What I would like to see in addition is the ability to inherit the password protection of a page to its subpages (as is currently the case with Blog and Portfolio, at least on one sub-level). Currently you have to password protect the subpages of a password protected page individually and the user/customer has to enter the password for each subpage separately.

If you need page in similar group then it is the use case of portfolio right?

I just discovered this feature when looking for an option to password protect certain areas for my photography. I find the squarespace set up a bit clunky and found this in an article online as well.

What they should improve: While you can password-protect pages to create private client galleries, Squarespace doesn’t offer any client proofing features or the ability for clients to order gallery prints. Faster page loading speeds would also make for a better user experience.

I..e it would be good to have a member area for your subscribers that is password protected and then you can upload any images they bought this way.

May I know how much storage is allocated per user for this purpose?

Squarespace does not limit "storage" in the way that other platforms do. There are no limits in data sizes (such as gigabytes). Instead there are limits on the number of pages, sections, and video storage (in minutes, not gigabytes). 

You may find it helpful to read the Page Limits guide.

I was referring to photo galleries for the purpose of clients to download.

On your Squarespace v7.0 sites, you can add up to 250 images to a Gallery Page or a Gallery Block. (Users on Squarespace v7.1 can add up to 250 images to each Gallery Section instead.)

Galleries are ideal for portfolios, but as @NadjaK mentioned above, they aren't designed for client proofing or for downloading or ordering images. For that purpose, you may want to consider using another platform alongside Squarespace, such as Pixieset, as it makes it much easier to share, deliver, proof and sell photographs online. If you give the proofing site a subdomain of your main site, it can be seamless for users to transition between them.

I'm using another platform alongside Squarespace to help with that via a subdomain.

Out of interest, which platform are you using?
