Leaving The Nest: Upload Your Pictures From Your Computer

screenshot of the new Picpack upload feature When we started Picpack, it was an easy choice to pick Instagram as our photo service partner: it was a fast growing platform with a huge user base and pretty easy to integrate with, and pictures are already nicely pre-squared.

We’re pleased to announce our new “artist packs” – magnets featuring the work of talented illustrators and photographers around the world.

“We’re friends with many photographers, illustrators and artists – people who create amazing work and deserve a wider audience,” says Thomas Albrecht, co-founder of Picpack. “By printing their work on magnets, we hope to share our favourite art with the world.”
