https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/7A/yL/QD822X81JLDF.PNGCincopa Brings Quick, Easy Gallery Options to Any PlatformMy marketing agency was hired to build a catalogue site for an audio equipment dealer. Over the course of discovery, we settled on using BigCommerce as a platform. One issue we didn't realize was the difference between page designs on the website and product pages versus the internal blog pages. We decided to utilize Cincopa to offer a gallery on content (blog) articles that would allow for a quick solution that worked better than writing custom software or intricate CSS files to facilitate multiple images in BigCommerce blog pages. As much of our client's website relies on multiple high-quality images, we needed a solution that loaded quickly, looked great, and was easy to embed or integrate. We found that in Cincopa.,Set-Up: Setting up the galleries is mostly a drag-and-drop process that makes it easy for laymen (or interns) to easily format and put together, without a lot of coding knowledge or experience. Integration: With multiple options for integration, Cincopa allows you to control how the calls are made. Since it is a script-based import with its own container, it actually makes it easy to drop into nearly any webpage with little to no additional fussing. Options: Cincopa offers a great deal of gallery templates that can be used for images, videos, playlists, etc. The templates offer unique presentations and functions, and each template gives you additional control over the appearance of each gallery.,In my experience, the drag-and-drop functionality when re-ordering a gallery has a tendency to break. This is either a complicated lock-up (something to do with the visualization) or being treated as text and only highlighting instead of moving. Many of the tool tips (?) don't explain the option well, often just repeating the available option. This isn't a major factor as some of the option effects can be figured out through trial and error, but it was something that I noticed during my first set-up.,7,For the client, Cincopa offered a great way to add attractive mixed-media galleries that fit into a blog post. It also is easy enough for unskilled (or at least not highly skilled in JS, CSS, or HTML) For my agency, it offered us a quick solution that integrated well into a website without additional coding or fussing. Cincopa allowed us to develop the site on a platform that didn't offer native galleries in the content sections. This saved plenty of time for the development team and reduced the cost of the overhead for the project management team.,,Google Ads (formerly AdWords), Google Analytics, Facebook for Business,Setting up a video, image, or mixed media gallery is quite easy. It can look a little daunting because of the number of customization options, but setting up a good looking gallery from the template is very simple.,Rearranging images in the gallery is a little wonky or difficult. There are a lot of customization options. This is a positive thing; however, it may seem like there are more options than necessary.,9Cincopa: User Friendly and Fantastic Options!I use Cincopa to create photo galleries of events the LBA hosts. These photo galleries are then posted on our website and shared on social media and in our weekly e-newsletters so our members and potential new members can see what goes on at the LBA. The communications department solely uses Cincopa. Our website is not set up to host large photo galleries, so it allows us to post dozens of photos in an easy to use photo gallery on our website.,Cincopa has many templates to chose from. This allows me to chose exactly what I need for a particular gallery and I don't worry about all of my photo galleries looking the same and boring. Cincopa offers responsive photo galleries that are easy to view on both desktop computers and on mobile devices The customer service at Cincopa is fantastic. Someone is always there to help.,The website is a little difficult to navigate at first.,10,Cincopa has allowed our members to see photos from events they attended or could not attend.

I think the service is easy to use. I haven't had any issues with video hosting so far!,10,The video that we uploaded to our website will show prospects in the area around our apartment community and hopefully give them a good idea of how close they can be to work/school. Our video will result in more apartments being rented which will have a positive impact on our ROI. Our video will give residents and prospects a positive image of our community.,Wistia,Wix, Adobe Photoshop, CanvaCincopa has answered my prayers!We use Cincopa as photo galleries on my personal resume and other blogs and entertainment online outlets I freelance for.,Ability to choose different formats Ability to categorize content Seamless installation Easy to upload Easy formatting,Have a better warning for users who went over the upload allowance for their specific plan,10,It's easy for clients to see my work all in one place It's easy for the user to go to each of the categories,Wistia,Wistia, BombBombCincopa is the best all-in-one tool for visual asset hosting in a creative and customizable way!I am using Cincopa to manage large photograph slideshow decks across multiple website pages. It is a terrific tool that allows for beautifully customizable slideshows. Cincopa has a variety of templates to choose from that do well to match the style an format of any web page. Each template gives a different user experience as well, providing different levels of interactivity to best suit web designers. I think it is a great tool and I will continue to use it to build other slideshow-based components on the Girl Scouts of Western Washington's website.,Customized slideshow templates Easy HTML embedding for any CMS Multiple integrations with Wordpress, Moodle, and social media platforms. Reliable image hosting and display without sacrificing an ounce of quality,Making users aware of the amazing video tutorials and other educational resources that they have available.,10,Improved user experience Increase pageview duration Increase webpage engagement (clicks as tracked on a heatmap)Cincopa video hosting is exactly what we needed!Currently, we use Cincopa for video hosting for our clients. When we develop a webinar or other short video, we host the video on Cincopa and add HubSpot forms over top for lead generation. Cincopa is an easy way to create a better user experience with video sharing. It is completely designed for the user so we don't lose potential leads in the process. HubSpot has recently added video features to their integration list, but it doesn't compare to what Cincopa currently offers (and the price is right!).,HubSpot Integration - This is done really well. So easy and doesn't require much work from us, the administrator. The sync is seamless. Reporting - The dashboards are really easy to read and provide insight into total number of views (daily, weekly and monthly) and total traffic to the video. Then with HubSpot, we can actually track the conversion metrics. Setup and Implementation - Cincopa is really easy to set up. From uploading the video, to design elements, to embedding the video back on your website, it's all very simple.,I honestly don't think I have anything I really dislike at this point. It does exactly what I need it to do.,10,It's too soon to tell right now. We've just started using Cincopa for a new client so we are still nurturing the current leads we have received from Cincopa, but it is very promising.,Vidyard,HubSpot, G SuiteCincopa helps us make our web content dynamic and visually engagingOur editorial department is using Cincopa as an interim solution to provide a multimedia experience to users on our existing site, while we gear up to building a site that will allow us to do this natively on the site. Cincopa has helped us create more dynamic, engaging experiences for content that has the potential for visual richness.,Cincopa is user-friendly from the upload process of slideshows to the editing process. Cincopa embeds work well on our site. Cincopa allows us to add calls to action right on the slideshow itself.,Sizing the embeds for iframe use can be tricky — the photo menu along the bottom doesn't always appear and it takes some playing with.,8,We've seen generally positive responses in our traffic from using Cincopa but still need to do more testing to say anything too definitively.,CanvaReview of Cincopa for a newspaper website photo galleryWe're a newspaper, and we use Cincopa to host photo slideshows on our website. Our site by default could not do slideshows, which had been a problem for several years, and Cincopa worked nicely to make that possible.,Ease of use: Just upload photos and then paste the link onto your website. Design is good and flexible if you want to try different looks. Support has been good for me in limited use with it. No problems.,Vertical photos are handled funny in the slideshows I've done. They increase the size of the whole slide instead of fitting into the same width as horizontal photos with black around the edges, which is what I'd prefer.,10,I suppose a small but positive one. Web galleries are a small part of our overall business, but it's nice to be able to do them when we want to.,Adobe PhotoshopCincopa is great for marketing agencies!I manage hundreds of websites. Every now and then I have a client who has some very specific needs for the website. Specifically requests for specialty photo galleries and file storing. I have found Cincopa to be a super easy tool to manage dozens of galleries for dozens of different clients with one login. Additionally, Cincopa provides simple iFrame embed code to easily add to ANY website.,Connects to Zapier Great customer support Massive photo gallery templates to choose from,The majority of the time I get immediate response when I have a question, but sometimes it can be a couple hour delay.,10,Huge ROI. Major Time Saver. Easy Integration.,,Amazon Cognito, Stripe, GoDaddyA Teacher/Researcher's Use of Cincopa for the Dissemination of Video DataI am an Associate Professor of English for Academic Purposes and I do cognitive linguistics research on the way students make meaning while brainstorming for essays, complete sentences, and write summaries and responses. This is all formal research covered by Federal Guidelines and the Institutional Review Board (IRB) that approves or disapproves research. I have been using Cincopa to post these videos from papers on discourse analysis and the study of the way students make meaning. We have also begun work with math word problems. I show these videos to students and at conferences to study ways to improve metacognition (i.e., thinking about one's own thinking). The entire goal is to improve students success with reading, writing, and critical thinking. I have not yet explored more options for using all the features, as I have the technical side very simple.,Cincopa is a seamless way to upload videos and post them anywhere The quality of the different skins is outstanding. The time to upload is superb.,I don't have any ideas for improvement because I am doing very simple work with this wonderful tool.,10,I don't use this for business; just research and teaching,Cincopa helped our Community website in so many waysWe have been using Cincopa for a Community group that we are running the website for, and found Cincopa to be fantastic in providing access to tools that previously we would have had to employ a developer for. The range of tools is fantastic and the results are great.,The ability to email images into a live webpage Scrolling images from a library accessible by non techies Video hosting without the hassle,I can't think of anything here at present,10,We would have had to forego some of the features that websites have on some sites because there is no budget for it.

I am a photographer and have struggled with organizing and displaying my photography on my web page for a long time. As I grew and added more and more photos it bogged my website down. It ran slow and the images took too long to load for my customers to see. Cincopa gave me everything I needed to organize and let my website run fast! I was able to upload all of my photos to Cincopa in one step, and quickly organized them. Then I could select amazing photo galleries to show on my website! They look amazing and are super-fast and responsive! This was very important to me because a lot of people view my photos on their phone or tablet. My website is not that responsive but using Cincopa I did not have to worry about that. The entire process was simple and fast. Cincopa let me do everything I wanted for my gallery and slideshows without any branding to seamlessly blend into my webpage. If you are a photographer and need a simple fast way to show your work, Cincopa is the best choice.,Responsive - if your platform is not responsive it will display the gallery this way across all platforms. Fast - if you have slow uploads it will increase your load speed. Easy - you can upload all your photos at once or one at a time. Then use a preset gallery to display them.,If they could have more options for photo galleries. They have great options but more may appeal to others.,9,Cincopa has allowed my customers to view my photos more easily and faster. It is a better experience for them and me.Cincopa for image hostingI use Cincopa to host images on my website. There are small images which customers then click on. They expand and they are able to choose a suitable design. It allows me to easily edit and change the images my customers can view. I paint personalized watercolors, so they need to be able to see lots of different options.,Easy to set up and change galleries Simple and clear images on my website Mobile friendly,I would like to be able to change the gallery background to white or transparent It would be nice to be able to keep the settings for any new galleries without having to manually do it. It's a shame the old package is no longer available. The Plus package is more than I can afford,9,It enable my customers to see all designs available quickly and easily Makes website much more visual - I sell paintings, so customers need to see designs Unfortunately the package that I did have is no longer available, and the next option is more than my business can afford to spend.,Dropbox,Canva,1My Cincopa ReviewOur corporate communications department uses Cincopa to host photo galleries and audio files, which we turn into podcast playlists. Cincopa allows us to easily drop an embed code into our CMS, rather than code original galleries ourselves. It's a plug and play.,I like that Cincopa has many gallery design options. I've never had a problem with a Cincopa embed code. It works every time. Omer, at Cincopa, is always responsive to my emails.,Cincopa only allows for one size of photo. For example, if I want to include a vertical photo and a horizontal one, I have to have the Cincopa team custom-code this feature for me. It should be an out-of-box feature. Our designer had to put some parameters in Cincopa, so that the galleries fit in well with our website. It's not intuitive to the average person. The analytics are very lacking. We have a podcast page where about four to five podcast series live, but the analytics are the same for all of those series because Cincopa only records when someone sees the first slide of a gallery, not individual slides. So, there's no way to know if one podcast is more popular than the other. And, since Cincopa is an iframe, we can't gather this data with Google Analytics either.,5,It's helped us get our slide shows and podcasts off the ground.Cincopa, easy to understand and user friendlyWe use Cincopa within the Online Marketing department. With the picture gallery of Cincopa we publish a large amount of pictures, which are submitted as part of campaigns with us. For all images we can use the file names or separate titles, store descriptions and/or tag them. Cincopa offers a variety of templates that can be customized. The integration of the search function is another advantage for us. This allows the images to be searched by file name, title or by assigned tag accurately, which is very important for our customers. Another advantage is that the template and all settings can be changed later. The tool is very easy to use and very easy to understand.,A large amount of templates that can be customized. Photos and videos can be viewed within the same gallery. The integration of a search function including tagging.,The number of pictures for the upload should be slightly higher. The previous calculation of the traffic is difficult. If many pictures have to be deleted from a gallery, that does not happen so fast, because only 50 pictures are loaded. Then you have to scroll all the way down and wait until the next 50 images are loaded, in order to be able to mark them for deletion. This takes a while with 800 pictures for example.,10,We use the tool primarily as a customer loyalty measure. Customers can view all submitted images and videos, also from other people and share with other people. In addition, the tool serves to promote the image of our company by giving the customer pleasure. The residence time of the customers on the page with the picture gallery is very high.,How Cincopa helped Peaceful Gamers present their user generated media galleryCincopa is used to run a user-generated image gallery on one of our organisation's public web pages. We use an internal discord server to submit content via Zapier, which is then uploaded for public consumption.,It looks great on the website. It's one of the few solutions that integrates with Zapier in the way we wanted It's fairly easy to use and set up,View limit for the free plan could be higher to improve testing It would be good if there were even more options for the gallery layout,8,It saved time for our team as we could upload content to our site without training members to use the regular site builder It increased user engagement from our audiencePerfect Image GalleriesWe use Cincopa to store and display image galleries on our website. This helps us to advertise events sponsored by the department and promote the impression that it is a social, inviting place to work (which is vital to the recruitment of qualified faculty and staff). As de facto head of marketing, I constantly struggle to create an appealing website within the confines of our academic institution's content management system. Cincopa allows me to easily create a fun, interactive experience for our website visitors.,Easily upload images and captions Customize gallery types and viewing options The display on any website,Lacking ability to combine and navigate through albums,9,Improved website experience,Increasing The Productivity of Staff With CincopaWe are using Cincopa to supplement a content management system required for use by a business partner that isn't very robust in terms of features it offers. The CMS we are using offers specific marketing features but does not include anything to support rotating banner images. Cincopa fills a huge void with us being able to take existing and new images and implement them along with messaging into our organization's website.,Cincopa provides an easy to use interface that allows or efficient creation of projects. Cincopa interacts with a variety of content management systems including the two primary systems my organization uses and allows smooth transition from creation to implementation. Cincopa allows for the creation of multiple projects with varying styles to fit our specific needs.,Cincopa offers a few different styles of transition and presentation but I would like to see more. The creation of projects flows fairly well from design to viewing a preliminary snapshot, but I would like to see an easier way to have an updated view of my project in process. I would appreciate a library of sample images to choose from with a basic subscription.,9,The ease of use of Cincopa has allowed for creative time for projects to diminish so more work can be completed and projects implemented. Cincopa has allowed us to create more projects associated with our new brand and increase the amount of time it takes to get old branded items off our website. Cincopa allows us to create projects that can be used across platforms rather than specifically for one or the other.,Bicore FLIGHTMAP and BrandYourself,Brightcove, Adobe Marketing Cloud, Edge ImagingThe best photo and video gallery online , CincopaWe use Cincopa at our real estate office. It is a great tool for the photos and videos we create for our real estate listings. I use it myself. The thing I like most about Cincopa is that it has an incredible amount of features and options when you make a photo or video gallery or playlist. It is easy to organize, edit, and manage the photos and videos online. It is easy to navigate, control and when it comes to organizing and managing I couldn’t ask for a better system in place. You can always see what you are working on, and check on the look and make edits with ease. It is very practical for those who like to constantly check on the results. Among the other features that I really like is that it has an incredible amount of templates, both for images and videos and it works great on websites whether your on a laptop, computer or cell phone.,It is easy to use. From uploading your photos, videos and then choose a template, make edits if needed and then copy your code. Managing photos- once your photos are uploaded, it is easy to move them around and make edits. Until your a completely happy with the gallery look, you can try lots of templates and see the changes in real time. You can add keywords to your photos which I have not seen on other platforms.,We have uploaded thousands of photos and sometimes I want to find particular ones, and it takes some time to search and find. With thousands of photos uploaded a large amount of storage is needed.,10,It has greatly improved our customer satisfaction. Our clients love the photo and video displays . We have grown over the last 3 years to 50+ employees. Keeping and adding new customers has been a cheat because of the look of our websites The other options out there are very limited not as easy to use. Their system is also very time efficient. They have made it very easy to build a gallery or playlist and embed it into our websites saving time has also allowed us Focus on other areas.,Wix,Adobe Flash, Adobe PhotoshopCincopa - Higher Ed UsageThe New School uses Cincopa as the delivery system for our university slideshows. We utilize their API to deliver the images to our own custom built and designed slideshows tools. We love the simplicity of the upload process and how we can assign different users to manage their own uploads.,Image Uploads Robust API for import and export purposes Image titles and captions are supported,Analytics on individual images Easy mass delete tools,8,Cincopa has provided great value. For us, simplicity was a key factor in its selection and use.,Adobe Illustrator CC, Adobe PhotoshopCincopa great website effects, Easy integration!I am a professional musician and wanted to implement a full page slide show, video and some roll over effects on my website. Unfortunately I am not a web designer and have very limited skills when it comes to writing HTML codes or scripts. (I needed a program that was user friendly for someone like myself.) While doing a search I came across Cincopa, which seemed to offer everything I was looking for. I signed up and with in 30 minutes I had a working full page slide show and some videos on my website. This is by far the easiest web software I've used. Simply upload photos / videos and drop and drag into a gallery of your choice. Cincopa has many templates to choose from each with it's own unique look. The next step was to just save your gallery and it automatically creates an html code. You just copy and paste the code into the header of your website. (Seamless Integration) Cincopa has been a life saver and I now have a website that has all the features you'd expect to see on a website costing thousands!,Seamless integration User friendly Great templates to choose from,More templates,10,I use Cincopa on my personal website as an information resource. Website looks much more professional. Website is more user friendly.REVIEW CINCOPA: the best gallery easy to embedOur company uses CINCOPA on the website to view multimedia content in an agile, light and efficient way. It is very simple to implement and allows us great versatility and fast integrate different graphic content. Additionally, it allows us to obtain a better SEO through keywords and descriptions of each gallery.,Responsive galleries easy to embed Automatic and efficient SEO Upload photos by email very easily,The only drawback is that if you have the free account the monthly traffic is scarce. Everything else in cincopa is great.,10,We believe that Cincopa is an investment that could bring us new clients thanks to its characteristics,Why I would recommend using Cincopa for a photo gallery or video gallery.We use Cincopa on different websites. We wanted an easy way for our clients to be able to use different photos galleries on their websites and be able to maintain them on their own. I have used different programs for this before but find that Cincopa is very easy for people to use and understand.,Very easy to learn and figure out. They already have templates to use.

My marketing agency was hired to build a catalogue site for an audio equipment dealer. Over the course of discovery, we settled on using BigCommerce as a platform. One issue we didn't realize was the difference between page designs on the website and product pages versus the internal blog pages. We decided to utilize Cincopa to offer a gallery on content (blog) articles that would allow for a quick solution that worked better than writing custom software or intricate CSS files to facilitate multiple images in BigCommerce blog pages. As much of our client's website relies on multiple high-quality images, we needed a solution that loaded quickly, looked great, and was easy to embed or integrate. We found that in Cincopa.
  • Set-Up: Setting up the galleries is mostly a drag-and-drop process that makes it easy for laymen (or interns) to easily format and put together, without a lot of coding knowledge or experience.
  • Integration: With multiple options for integration, Cincopa allows you to control how the calls are made. Since it is a script-based import with its own container, it actually makes it easy to drop into nearly any webpage with little to no additional fussing.
  • Options: Cincopa offers a great deal of gallery templates that can be used for images, videos, playlists, etc. The templates offer unique presentations and functions, and each template gives you additional control over the appearance of each gallery.
  • In my experience, the drag-and-drop functionality when re-ordering a gallery has a tendency to break. This is either a complicated lock-up (something to do with the visualization) or being treated as text and only highlighting instead of moving.
  • Many of the tool tips (?) don't explain the option well, often just repeating the available option. This isn't a major factor as some of the option effects can be figured out through trial and error, but it was something that I noticed during my first set-up.
I would say that Cincopa is a first-stop for any dev project without an internal gallery option. This is especially true if the person in charge of content or building the galleries is not a coder. Cincopa makes designing a good looking gallery and inserting it into nearly any webpage a pretty simple process, so it is a great starting place. There may be other options that would fit a different development project better (internal gallery functions or a full-scale DAM with importable galleries), but for our purposes Cincopa was (and is) a perfect fit.

Cincopa is great for small businesses that need to post photo or video galleries on their websites. Cincopa can do many other things, however, I have only used them for photo galleries. Cincopa also makes it easy to post a video on websites.

  • Have a better warning for users who went over the upload allowance for their specific plan
Anyone who has a website or blog can use Cincopa! It's easy to use and super user-friendly. The free plan even works for some depending on how much content you want to upload. I love that it is free as well unlike some of their competitors. All around great product.

  • Reliable image hosting and display without sacrificing an ounce of quality
  • Making users aware of the amazing video tutorials and other educational resources that they have available.
Cincopa is well suited for embedding a variety of visual elements into virtually any CMS. This is a great alternative to multiple WordPress plugins or hard-coding components yourself.

Currently, we use Cincopa for video hosting for our clients. When we develop a webinar or other short video, we host the video on Cincopa and add HubSpot forms over top for lead generation. Cincopa is an easy way to create a better user experience with video sharing. It is completely designed for the user so we don't lose potential leads in the process. HubSpot has recently added video features to their integration list, but it doesn't compare to what Cincopa currently offers (and the price is right!).
  • HubSpot Integration - This is done really well. So easy and doesn't require much work from us, the administrator. The sync is seamless.
  • Reporting - The dashboards are really easy to read and provide insight into total number of views (daily, weekly and monthly) and total traffic to the video. Then with HubSpot, we can actually track the conversion metrics.
  • Setup and Implementation - Cincopa is really easy to set up. From uploading the video, to design elements, to embedding the video back on your website, it's all very simple.
  • I honestly don't think I have anything I really dislike at this point. It does exactly what I need it to do.
Cincopa works great for any video recording, specifically sales videos and evergreen webinars. With both of these, we can add CTAs or we don't have to and either way, we'll get good reporting on who's engaging with the content.

Our editorial department is using Cincopa as an interim solution to provide a multimedia experience to users on our existing site, while we gear up to building a site that will allow us to do this natively on the site. Cincopa has helped us create more dynamic, engaging experiences for content that has the potential for visual richness.
  • Cincopa is user-friendly from the upload process of slideshows to the editing process.
  • Cincopa embeds work well on our site.
  • Cincopa allows us to add calls to action right on the slideshow itself.
  • Sizing the embeds for iframe use can be tricky — the photo menu along the bottom doesn't always appear and it takes some playing with.
If you have an outdated website where it's not easy to create dynamic, visual experiences natively, and need to do something to interrupt the "wall of text" experience for your users, Cincopa is a great, user-friendly way to do it. It's cost-effective and easy to get team members excited about trying.

We're a newspaper, and we use Cincopa to host photo slideshows on our website. Our site by default could not do slideshows, which had been a problem for several years, and Cincopa worked nicely to make that possible.
  • Ease of use: Just upload photos and then paste the link onto your website.
  • Design is good and flexible if you want to try different looks.
  • Support has been good for me in limited use with it. No problems.
  • Vertical photos are handled funny in the slideshows I've done. They increase the size of the whole slide instead of fitting into the same width as horizontal photos with black around the edges, which is what I'd prefer.
If you need a gallery on your website, this is an easy way to do it.

I manage hundreds of websites. Every now and then I have a client who has some very specific needs for the website. Specifically requests for specialty photo galleries and file storing. I have found Cincopa to be a super easy tool to manage dozens of galleries for dozens of different clients with one login. Additionally, Cincopa provides simple iFrame embed code to easily add to ANY website.
  • Connects to Zapier
  • Great customer support
  • Massive photo gallery templates to choose from
  • The majority of the time I get immediate response when I have a question, but sometimes it can be a couple hour delay.
When you or a client has specialty photo gallery needs and you want a VERY easy way to create, manage, and publish galleries on any website.

I am an Associate Professor of English for Academic Purposes and I do cognitive linguistics research on the way students make meaning while brainstorming for essays, complete sentences, and write summaries and responses. This is all formal research covered by Federal Guidelines and the Institutional Review Board (IRB) that approves or disapproves research. I have been using Cincopa to post these videos from papers on discourse analysis and the study of the way students make meaning. We have also begun work with math word problems. I show these videos to students and at conferences to study ways to improve metacognition (i.e., thinking about one's own thinking). The entire goal is to improve students success with reading, writing, and critical thinking. I have not yet explored more options for using all the features, as I have the technical side very simple.
  • Cincopa is a seamless way to upload videos and post them anywhere
  • The quality of the different skins is outstanding.
  • The time to upload is superb.
  • I don't have any ideas for improvement because I am doing very simple work with this wonderful tool.
It is great for sharing conference power points and videos for academic papers. I don't know where it would be less appropriate.

We have been using Cincopa for a Community group that we are running the website for, and found Cincopa to be fantastic in providing access to tools that previously we would have had to employ a developer for. The range of tools is fantastic and the results are great.
  • The ability to email images into a live webpage
  • Scrolling images from a library accessible by non techies
  • Video hosting without the hassle
  • I can't think of anything here at present
Cincopa has been great for us in deploying features that we couldn't do on our own

If you are looking for a great way to organize and optimize your photography for your website Cincopa is it. I am a photographer and have struggled with organizing and displaying my photography on my web page for a long time. As I grew and added more and more photos it bogged my website down. It ran slow and the images took too long to load for my customers to see. Cincopa gave me everything I needed to organize and let my website run fast! I was able to upload all of my photos to Cincopa in one step, and quickly organized them. Then I could select amazing photo galleries to show on my website! They look amazing and are super-fast and responsive!

This was very important to me because a lot of people view my photos on their phone or tablet. My website is not that responsive but using Cincopa I did not have to worry about that. The entire process was simple and fast. Cincopa let me do everything I wanted for my gallery and slideshows without any branding to seamlessly blend into my webpage. If you are a photographer and need a simple fast way to show your work, Cincopa is the best choice.
  • Responsive - if your platform is not responsive it will display the gallery this way across all platforms.
  • Fast - if you have slow uploads it will increase your load speed.
  • Easy - you can upload all your photos at once or one at a time. Then use a preset gallery to display them.
  • If they could have more options for photo galleries. They have great options but more may appeal to others.
Using Cincopa for an online gallery will increase your speed and ease of use.

Cincopa for image hosting

I use Cincopa to host images on my website. There are small images which customers then click on. They expand and they are able to choose a suitable design.


It allows me to easily edit and change the images my customers can view. I paint personalized watercolors, so they need to be able to see lots of different options.
  • Easy to set up and change galleries
  • Simple and clear images on my website
  • Mobile friendly
  • I would like to be able to change the gallery background to white or transparent
  • It would be nice to be able to keep the settings for any new galleries without having to manually do it.
  • It's a shame the old package is no longer available. The Plus package is more than I can afford
Good for creating a Pinterest style gallery of images where you have a lot of images you want to display. The small images, when clicked on, expand to a much larger slideshow image.

Also good for putting in a video. You can choose the dimensions and size. When clicked, the video will play. I have only used this feature a little bit.

Our corporate communications department uses Cincopa to host photo galleries and audio files, which we turn into podcast playlists. Cincopa allows us to easily drop an embed code into our CMS, rather than code original galleries ourselves. It's a plug and play.
  • I like that Cincopa has many gallery design options.
  • I've never had a problem with a Cincopa embed code. It works every time.
  • Omer, at Cincopa, is always responsive to my emails.
  • Cincopa only allows for one size of photo. For example, if I want to include a vertical photo and a horizontal one, I have to have the Cincopa team custom-code this feature for me. It should be an out-of-box feature.
  • Our designer had to put some parameters in Cincopa, so that the galleries fit in well with our website. It's not intuitive to the average person.
  • The analytics are very lacking. We have a podcast page where about four to five podcast series live, but the analytics are the same for all of those series because Cincopa only records when someone sees the first slide of a gallery, not individual slides. So, there's no way to know if one podcast is more popular than the other. And, since Cincopa is an iframe, we can't gather this data with Google Analytics either.
Cincopa is great if you need a photo gallery embed. If you want robust analytics, slide shows with multiple sized photos and an intuitive plug-and-play option, it'll work but not perfectly.

We use Cincopa within the Online Marketing department. With the picture gallery of Cincopa we publish a large amount of pictures, which are submitted as part of campaigns with us. For all images we can use the file names or separate titles, store descriptions and/or tag them. Cincopa offers a variety of templates that can be customized. The integration of the search function is another advantage for us. This allows the images to be searched by file name, title or by assigned tag accurately, which is very important for our customers. Another advantage is that the template and all settings can be changed later. The tool is very easy to use and very easy to understand.
  • A large amount of templates that can be customized.
  • Photos and videos can be viewed within the same gallery.
  • The integration of a search function including tagging.
  • The number of pictures for the upload should be slightly higher.
  • The previous calculation of the traffic is difficult.
  • If many pictures have to be deleted from a gallery, that does not happen so fast, because only 50 pictures are loaded. Then you have to scroll all the way down and wait until the next 50 images are loaded, in order to be able to mark them for deletion. This takes a while with 800 pictures for example.

The tool is very well suited to presenting a large amount of images to a large number of people or even the public. The images can be searched for filenames or specially marked. So that customers, e.g. quickly find their own image (for example for a competition) and share it with friends via social media.

Furthermore, the tool is very well suited when launching a campaign where ideas for a project can be submitted. Whether pictures or videos, all content can be presented within a gallery.

In addition, several galleries can be created within an account.

Cincopa is used to run a user-generated image gallery on one of our organisation's public web pages. We use an internal discord server to submit content via Zapier, which is then uploaded for public consumption.
  • It looks great on the website.
  • It's one of the few solutions that integrates with Zapier in the way we wanted
  • It's fairly easy to use and set up
  • View limit for the free plan could be higher to improve testing
  • It would be good if there were even more options for the gallery layout
It works very well for displaying a media gallery on a website with content that's updated from elsewhere. As mentioned earlier, it's very useful thanks to the integration with Zapier. It's good for applications that require regular content updates. However, it might be unnecessary if you only want a basic solution (a static web page with permanent content, for example).

Perfect Image Galleries

We use Cincopa to store and display image galleries on our website. This helps us to advertise events sponsored by the department and promote the impression that it is a social, inviting place to work (which is vital to the recruitment of qualified faculty and staff). As de facto head of marketing, I constantly struggle to create an appealing website within the confines of our academic institution's content management system. Cincopa allows me to easily create a fun, interactive experience for our website visitors.
  • Easily upload images and captions
  • Customize gallery types and viewing options
  • The display on any website
  • Lacking ability to combine and navigate through albums
Cincopa is perfect for organizations (such as academic institutions) that have strict, limited-feature content management systems. It allows you to create and embed attractive photo galleries on any type of website. I would not be able to create pages that look half as good using our local CMS by itself.

We are using Cincopa to supplement a content management system required for use by a business partner that isn't very robust in terms of features it offers. The CMS we are using offers specific marketing features but does not include anything to support rotating banner images. Cincopa fills a huge void with us being able to take existing and new images and implement them along with messaging into our organization's website.
  • Cincopa provides an easy to use interface that allows or efficient creation of projects.
  • Cincopa interacts with a variety of content management systems including the two primary systems my organization uses and allows smooth transition from creation to implementation.
  • Cincopa allows for the creation of multiple projects with varying styles to fit our specific needs.
  • Cincopa offers a few different styles of transition and presentation but I would like to see more.
  • The creation of projects flows fairly well from design to viewing a preliminary snapshot, but I would like to see an easier way to have an updated view of my project in process.
  • I would appreciate a library of sample images to choose from with a basic subscription.
Cincopa is well suited to content management systems that allow for raw code to be inserted. I would like to see it partner with recognized platforms like Weebly or Wix to have an element created that would allow creation of the projects from within the content management system. This would reduce the time needed to create projects with one stop as it were.

We use Cincopa at our real estate office. It is a great tool for the photos and videos we create for our real estate listings. I use it myself. The thing I like most about Cincopa is that it has an incredible amount of features and options when you make a photo or video gallery or playlist. It is easy to organize, edit, and manage the photos and videos online. It is easy to navigate, control and when it comes to organizing and managing I couldn’t ask for a better system in place. You can always see what you are working on, and check on the look and make edits with ease. It is very practical for those who like to constantly check on the results. Among the other features that I really like is that it has an incredible amount of templates, both for images and videos and it works great on websites whether your on a laptop, computer or cell phone.
  • It is easy to use. From uploading your photos, videos and then choose a template, make edits if needed and then copy your code.
  • Managing photos- once your photos are uploaded, it is easy to move them around and make edits. Until your a completely happy with the gallery look, you can try lots of templates and see the changes in real time.
  • You can add keywords to your photos which I have not seen on other platforms.
  • We have uploaded thousands of photos and sometimes I want to find particular ones, and it takes some time to search and find.
  • With thousands of photos uploaded a large amount of storage is needed.
Cincopa is great for our real estate websites. We need different sizes and styles and Cincopa allows us those options. I have not had an issue where I would not think Cincopa is well suited.

The New School uses Cincopa as the delivery system for our university slideshows. We utilize their API to deliver the images to our own custom built and designed slideshows tools. We love the simplicity of the upload process and how we can assign different users to manage their own uploads.
  • Image Uploads
  • Robust API for import and export purposes
  • Image titles and captions are supported
  • Analytics on individual images
  • Easy mass delete tools
Great if you just need a storage service that can output slideshows on demand.

I am a professional musician and wanted to implement a full page slide show, video and some roll over effects on my website. Unfortunately I am not a web designer and have very limited skills when it comes to writing HTML codes or scripts. (I needed a program that was user friendly for someone like myself.) While doing a search I came across Cincopa, which seemed to offer everything I was looking for. I signed up and with in 30 minutes I had a working full page slide show and some videos on my website. This is by far the easiest web software I've used. Simply upload photos / videos and drop and drag into a gallery of your choice. Cincopa has many templates to choose from each with it's own unique look. The next step was to just save your gallery and it automatically creates an html code. You just copy and paste the code into the header of your website. (Seamless Integration) Cincopa has been a life saver and I now have a website that has all the features you'd expect to see on a website costing thousands!
  • Seamless integration
  • User friendly
  • Great templates to choose from
  • More templates
Well suited for someone with limited webdesign knowledge.

Our company uses CINCOPA on the website to view multimedia content in an agile, light and efficient way.

Additionally, it allows us to obtain a better SEO through keywords and descriptions of each gallery.
  • Responsive galleries easy to embed
  • Automatic and efficient SEO
  • Upload photos by email very easily
  • The only drawback is that if you have the free account the monthly traffic is scarce. Everything else in cincopa is great.

We use Cincopa on different websites. We wanted an easy way for our clients to be able to use different photos galleries on their websites and be able to maintain them on their own. I have used different programs for this before but find that Cincopa is very easy for people to use and understand.
  • Very easy to learn and figure out.
  • They already have templates to use.
  • You can use images and videos.
  • I don't have anything negative to say. I really like the product.
If your looking for a simple photo gallery or video gallery that is easy to understand then Cincopa is the right choice. Its easy to embed the code into your website or blog and with the 40 different templates already made, there is always something that will work.

  • Various gallery templates and the ability to customize them
  • Easy to embed into our website's implementation
  • Ability to use for photo and video
  • Fickle at times with saving caption information, ordering correctly, and updating to reflect changes
  • Capacity limits can be frustrating
Cincopa is a good solution for individuals wishing to have nice-looking photo or video galleries embedded on their site.
