I like the fact that Cincopa stores pictures/video on servers that are quick loading and delivers them in easy to use galleries. You can choose how the galleries are displayed and the code is automatically generated for several platforms. I use WordPress and it works like a charm through several updates. I have been using the service since 2009.
People are always asking for content pages with more photos and less writing. In today’s online society, an organization is judged by the “freshness” of content (whatever that means). It’s a constant battle to keep a website looking fresh. A new code is often untested, unstable, frustrating to learn and work with on your own (especially if you are a small organization with no IT department). There are many available WordPress plugins for adding photo albums to your website. Some plugins bring them in from Google or Facebook, but with updates, they always seem to break (even the ones you pay for). Being a non-profit organization, we have used the free Cincopa plugin for many years now. There was only a hand full of times when I had to react to an update breaking the way the albums were displayed. Fixes were as simple as choosing another gallery template from the Cincopa plugin.
Bottomline – Cincopa is a great way to store media off-site and easy to add galleries to pages via built-in plugins for several web building programs. You don’t have to be an expert webmaster to make really nice photo albums on your website. Technical support staff is available to answer questions when you need them.
