Parade allows you to create and share a scrolling photo album from a variety of sources.
Parade is a photo-sharing service that integrates with existing storage technology like Dropbox in order to make things simpler and more streamlined. Uploading photos to Parade is extremely easy, and it’s the first thing that you’re prompted to do upon arriving at the site. You can upload photos via a Dropbox or Box URL, or by dragging and dropping a file from your own computer. Parade then creates a scrolling album featuring your images (so it’s best to upload multiple photographs at a time, preferably in some sort of sensical order that tells a story). After your photographs are uploaded, Parade allows you to add text on top of every image. The images are arranged in a way so that they fill up the entire width of the browser, and you can scroll through them easily. The text captions can be placed wherever you’d like.
After you finish editing your Parade, you can publish it either publicly or privately. The site then gives you the option to share your Parade across several social media platforms. It’s easy to be creative while making a cool product on Parade, and it’s definitely one of the best ways to share images online. The site also has Parades made by various users that are worth browsing, such as two users’ photograph collection of a trip to Cape Town, South Africa. Because the pictures are presented in such a large manner, with easily readable captions laid directly on top of them, it mimics the feel of scrolling through a traditional photo album (with features enhanced by web technology, of course). The site offers a great way to organize your photographs, and sharing them couldn’t be easier. If you’ve got a story to tell with your images, Parade is the place to tell it.
