The idea of creating a WordPress proofing photo cart was born about 18 months ago, and after a few months of brain storming and interviewing different photographers we had decided to start the project. It took us about 6 months of development to realize that the finances we initially pledged were not enough to continue the project and so had to put it away for a while until we could afford to continue. That being said, we need to thank you all for your interest and for the continuous inquiries and support, which led to us looking for an investor or a business angel to relieve us of the financial burden of the project. So, in August of 2012, Zilman Media, an Irish based IT company took over the project’s pecuniary needs that gave a boost to this start-up.
And today, we are finally announcing our first public beta release. We know that there’s a lot to improve and we are committed to adding as much useful functionality to ProofPress as physically possible. It’s just the beginning.
