About YouPic.com

YouPic.com is a new website designed for photographers with the goal of providing a place where they can share their work, find new and different inspirations, and "dramatically improve" their photography.  

How Does It Work?

Using your email address, your Facebook account, or other social networking account, you can create your own portfolio of photographic work and begin searching through those offered by other members.

This company believes that offering a place for photography enthusiasts to share and discuss their work, and the stories and details behind their photographs, will help them become better photographers over time. 

In addition, the best shots uploaded to their website will be awarded with exposure, awards, and honors, through their system of photographic sharing and voting for "favorite" photos. This site also plans on eventually expanding the services and features they will offer to their users.  

Cost/Price Plans

It seems that at this time, signing up for a YouPic.com account is free. It is unclear if membership will remain free once they expand their services or features, or if some of the future offerings will have certain charges. 

Refund Policy

Because this company does not currently charge any costs or fees they also do not publish a Refund Policy at this time. In the future if they do decide to add fees for the services they offer, they will either publish a Refund Policy or an explanation of why refunds won't be provided. 

Customer Service Contact Info

Customers who would like to contact their Customer Service team with questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by email at [email protected] or at [email protected], depending on your reason for contacting them.   

Reputation

While there are not really any user or customer reviews available at this time, there do seem to be some positive reviews from other websites and sources. 

Competitors and Alternatives?

There are many different websites that offer people the ability to share their photos, like Instagram, or those that are more focused on professional photography like Flickr.    

If you have any experience with this company or their products, please leave your YouPic.com reviews below.

Got a DM on IG



January10, 2019

I just joined YouPic a few days ago. Someone dm me on instagram and it looks like a spam because she wants me to send her my profile link when I join. I still joined 'cause YouPic looks really decent. Just didn't send my link to that girl.

Navel Gazing is alive and well



May30, 2018

If you like navel gazing, and accumulating "favorites" ( akin to likes on facebook), "repics" where someone saves your photo to their profile, and maybe getting lucky and having your photo selected as an "inspiration", then you might like YouPic. I joined free for about 10 days, over which I posted 145 ofmy photos, which were viewed over 45K times. I also had almost 4,000 "favorites", almost 2,000 "repics and 2 inspiration stars. I was at Level 11 when I deleted my account. Why did I delete, you ask? Well, Youpic takes a lot of work to advance levels, get fav's and repic's, and inspirations. I started out only going on the site each morning and evening, but quickly found myself checking it more and more during the day. Keeping up with the comments left by others becomes a real chore. You can also buy a premium membership, which gives you perks including supposedly better exposure, but I didn't bite. In the end, all it is boils down to hitech "navel gazing" You might like it, but not for me...

I am a YouPic member...I started out level one and a year and half later I am now a Level 25 and my ranking is around the 195 mark out of I don't know how many actual members. It was free and not only gave exposure to my art but also gave me an idea how others viewed my works of art. I've been a professional photographer for most of my life and I'm pretty old. Wernda, sounds like she didn't want to compete so to speak, either with him/herself or others. I really doubt he/she really got 4,000 favorites and 2,000 re-pics as claimed. I am now a premium member by choice but have not noticed any advantage of being one except to support this fairly new and growing inlet/outlet for fine art and other artistic photography. I have had issues a couple of times but they have always been addressed and resolved with little fanfare. I certainly would not consider the art I produce to fit the navel gazing category and though I am in love with my own art/photography, I spend literally hours enjoying those works of other artists. If you just don't feel like your art ranks good enough to be a part of this site, then you are missing the point that art is in the eyes of those viewing it. God created the Heavens and the Earths and His art is the ultimate example of those wonders. The many talented artists of the world capture those explicit moments in time that remind us of His love.

Pay to View



April25, 2018

This is a 500px clone, plain and simple. Like 500px, they try all kinds of ways to monetize the site, but the main way is to sell packages that "increase exposure." It is what it sounds like.... you're basically paying money to have more people see your photos so that you can get higher ratings. You get some other stuff like tutorials or whatever, but youtube is better. So if you like stars next to your photos, paying helps get you there. I can pay for views on Instagram, and it's more useful.

Really desperate for new users



February2, 2018

They have spammed me on my instagram DM multiple times about signing up for their services. I've told them time and time again that I'm not interested in signing up for their service nor do I want free publicity as I'd rather get payed for my work or sign up for a service myself.

I've blocked I think about 50 or so of their accounts, it's starting to really piss me off, really unprofessional of them.

They did that to me twice. The first time, some members objected to my posting too many sports photos (while others were giving the same photos likes and relics). YouPic enforces their site rules with a lynch mob mentality. If a few members want to get somebody banned, they complain to the site, which then banned me, without giving me any warning or asking to get my side of the story. My account at the time was JWGalleries.

After that banning, using a secondary email address, I made my return, account name JWBannedBack, in which I shared the news of my ban with other YouPic account holders. My work and message was seen by over 2000 peopled before that account was banned.

There are worse things in life than being banned by YouPic

Premium YouPic



May9, 2017

I am a Premium member of YouPic and since upgrading from Free to Premium, my profile and photos has got a great jump in exposure. Just easy to use and fast with HR photos. I always have trouble using large HR photos on my own website because it takes like tons of time to load. And we all know that speed is a killer! :-) But they seem to be having some nice technology they created, that solves this nicely.

Scammy



November23, 2016

I never signed up for their emailing list, yet keep getting emails from them inviting me to try YouPic. The unsubscribe button doesn't work, it simply takes me to their site. There's no email address or anything listed on the website. I don't know who these people are or how to contact them.

I was a member for close to a year. A couple of weeks ago, I got banned. They offer unlimited uploads, which I used. One or two members objected to the sports photos I was posting, accusing me of spamming the site. Meanwhile, a lot of other members liked what I was posting. That was never taken into consideration. They never issued me an warnings, never gave me an opportunity to speak up in my own defense; they never looked to see if any of their members liked what I was posting. To sum it up, YouPic.com polices their site with a "lynch mob mentality."

In order to communicate with YouPic about my ban, and to let other YouPic members know what happened to me, I set up a new account from a secondary e-mail address. I called my new account, jwbannedback. That account was also banned, but not before my photos were seen over 2,000 times with the announcement that my original account was banned in the photo descriptions. After both bans, they still sent me e-mails trying to sell YouPic Premium to me. Please help me spread the word.
