Why do I need a FolioSnap portfolio?

Even if you're a hobbyist, an online portfolio can help to identify and strengthen your creative skills by turning your musings into a cohesive and presentable body of work. It's also an easy and impressive way to share your images with friends, family, and colleagues all over the world.
Does FolioSnap work with both Windows and Mac OS?
Yes. FolioSnap is 100% compatible with both the Windows and Mac OS platforms. It's also 100% compatible with every major web browser. That goes for your website administration tools, as well as your actual website, since universal compatibility is an essential part of FolioSnap's long-standing commitment to professional usability and presentation standards.
How long does it take to set up my FolioSnap portfolio?
Your portfolio website is created and published to the Internet the moment you sign up for a free trial. You can then log in immediately to start customizing your website design and building your image galleries. We've found that most of our clients have a complete and professional website up and running in just a few short hours. Of course, you can continue making unlimited updates to your website and galleries whenever you want, and every update is as easy as point-and-click!
Do I need to download any software or know HTML to use FolioSnap?

That includes high-speed managed web hosting in our world-class datacenter, daily redundant data backups, and 24-hour network monitoring to ensure 100% uptime for your website, e-mail, and other hosted services.
