The app still requires it while logged in, just for the nicer, snappy experience of an app that makes asynchronous requests and keeps photos loaded in memory. But anyone viewing your galleries no longer needs it enabled 👍
If you had problems creating a Snap.as account in the past 4 days, we've fixed the issue that was causing it. You can try again now and everything should work!
Now you can get an overview of your albums on Snap.as, with the number of page views for each (the counter started today).
With this change, you can also delete albums!
Here it is! The official Snap.as browser extension. Just open it, drag a photo in, and the Markdown will be copied to your clipboard. Paste that in any Markdown-enabled editor (like @write_as) and there's your picture!

Profiles just got a lot better 😍
One minor change and a new feature tonight:
- Navigation bar now sticks around when you're logged in and navigating profiles and albums
- Users now have an RSS feed of their recent public photos! Right now, "public" means any photos added to an album; in the future, per-album settings will let you choose exactly shows up in the feed.
To access your feed, just add /recent.xml to your URL, e.g. https://snap.as/matt/recent.xml
What other feeds would you like to see?
Snap.as photo albums are live!
Just open the uploader and click the "Create photo album..." button to learn more, including what's coming next. If you'd like to unlock photo albums, it's just $10 -- a one-time purchase that will include all updates to this early feature.
I'm excited to launch this to everyone, and if you try it out I'd love to hear what you think so far!
Do you have any favorite quotes or sayings about photography? Would love to hear them for a tiny feature I'm adding in the app.
