My experience with Picsquare


A week back I ordered photo prints with Picsquare. I have heard back from my parents that they have received the prints. I’m extremely happy with their service and I will give thumbs up to them. Well done guys. The photo quality was good and they have met the delivery time as well.

Here is my feedback with Picsqaure.

  • Order process is simple
  • Good Service and Nice quality prints
  • Nice promotional offers (like referral benefits and gift coupons)
  • Prompt with delivery; they made within estimated delivery date.
  • Integration with Flickr

Improvements,

These are the possible area where they can improve on and these points are based on my personal opinion.

  • The site response time is comparatively slow; they need to work on it.
  • Tagging, it doesn’t solve the purpose in Picsqare. Tags are meant for managing things easy. With Picsqare managing tags itself it pretty hard. They need to come up with niche tagging interface and make managing them easier.
  • Multi upload feature allows you to tag photos but it tags all photo with only single tag. I don’t get an option to enter tag for each photo.
  • Overall interface can be changed; didn’t meet Web 2.0 standards
  • Few photo management options can be added like cropping, rotate etc.
  • More customization is required when it comes to Photo gifts.
  • More integration with other photo sharing service like Picasa etc.

I might have left out few; I will keep updating the list. If Picsqare is able to overcome its shortcomings, it can capitalize over its competitors like itasveer

Good Luck guys!

Most of the investment advisor’s suggest to apply. However, the issue is overpriced for short-term. Investors looking for long-term benefits can apply.

Update: The issue is over subscribed already in QIB segment. The retailer segment also would get oversubscribed so be choosy in investing small amounts.
