picu – WordPress Photo Proofing Gallery


Online Photo Proofing with WordPress

Envíe a su cliente una selección de fotografías para su aprobación.

  • With picu you can create galleries with images from your photo-shoots.
  • Send a link to your client via email as part of the workflow.
  • Once your client approves a collection, you will automatically be informed via email.
  • Recupera entonces fácilmente la selección de tu cliente para usarla en tu programa de administración de fotos preferido.

All from the comfort of your own WordPress installation.

Install this plugin and say goodbye to overcomplicated communication with your clients. Shoot, upload, get Approved!

picu uses its own, independent design for proofing collections, instead of the theme’s templates. This ensures a consistent, user-friendly and easy to understand workflow for your clients and prevents a lot of compatibility issues between themes and plugins. Customization and branding options are available with our Pro modules.

Images uploaded through picu are separated from the the regular media library. This is also by design. We separate them, because proofing images are usually not finished and are not meant to be published.

If you have any questions or suggestions take a look at our documentation or ask via email. We are here to help and love to hear your feedback.

Go Pro – Our premium add-ons enable even greater functionality:

  • Brand & Customize lets you add a custom logo and adapt the client gallery to match your branding.
  • Mark & Comment allows your clients to add comments and markers to individual images.
  • Selection Options allows you to define the number of images your client needs to select to approve a collection.
  • Download enables your client to download all collections images as a .zip file.
  • Import gives you the ability to upload large amounts of images via FTP and import them directly from your web server.
  • Theft Protection helps you to prevent image theft from picu collections by adding a watermark to your uploads and more.

Priority Support: We try our best to provide support and answer questions in the WordPress.org forums, but please be aware that one-on-one priority support via email is only guaranteed to people who bought a Pro license.

  • picu in the WordPress Admin: Simply create a collection of photos and send it to your client.
  • This is how the client sees the proofing gallery. (You can choose between a dark and a light theme, btw.)
  • Once the collection is approved you'll receive an email like this.
  • Collection overview, with status indicators for approved, waiting and draft.
  • View approved images in a list or grid view. Conveniently copy filenames of approved images with one click.


  1. Upload the picu folder to your /wp-content/plugins directory.
  2. Activate the «picu» plugin in the WordPress administration interface.

This plugin ignores complete my design.I shows the pics on a plane page. No menu or something else will shown. And I cannot use the already uploaded images.

It's really almost all a photographer need for photo proofing. Waiting for watermark image to be perfect! Pro price should be lower in my opinion

Yearly subscription in order to access to the most important feature. If it was a one time payment it would still be ridiculously overpriced, but this on top of that a early payment. Get a theme with built in photo proofing for half that price and you're set for life with a one time payment. Even the free version is buggy or missing vital features like deleting photos from collections... Can't be done... Have to delete entire collections and start over.
