Helping to make it easier to post photos to classified listings

Have you ever wanted to sell something online?  You know that adding high quality images will help you sell that stuff faster.  The problem is craigslist and ebay’s built in tools allow you to post only a few images and worse they scale them down and lower the quality of what you upload.  For some things you want to sell this is fine but for others not being able to see the details means the difference between a sale or not.  Or worse wasted back and forth asking for higher quality photos.

We are excited to announce the latest from Sargent Labs to solve this challenge: Powrlisting.com, a tool that lets you easily add high quality photos to classified listings.  

It’s as simple as uploading your original images to powrlisting.com and copy-and-pasting the automatically generated embed code to your posting.  We take care of all the boring image resizing behind the scenes so your posting looks great and you don’t have to do a thing.  Also, get some insight on how many times your posting is viewed with built-in analytics.

Check it out and let us know your feedback.

Our next project: s.ynap.se

We’ve just released version 0.1 of s.ynap.se, a service that let’s you send what you want simply & securely. We’ve been using this with our friends and family for about a year now and are really excited to see others start using it.

Some keys to s.ynap.se:

  • Share any type of file photo, video, zip, etc. - Up to 2GB files
  • Share URLs - High-res screen shots are captured of the content 
  • Totally secure - The things you share are only accessible by the people you share them with.
  • Friends from your social network - All your Facebook friends are already on s.ynap.se
  • Collaboration - Comment on anything you or your friends share
  • Private - No way to make the things you share open to the world, or Google for that matter
  • Accessible - We have an iPhone app and other platforms are coming soon
  • Fast - We create optimized previews for everything shared so things are snappy

The first question we get is “how is this different or better than…?”.  Well we took a look at what was out there and quite frankly found a lot.  However, what we found were services that facilitated sharing of file type A but not B, only one file at a time or broadcast everything to everyone.   S.ynap.se is a visual, private social network built to share and not to broadcast.  We feel that is very different from the other offerings and we like that. 

We’ve put a lot of energy into this app and we’re really excited about it. We hope you find it valuable and useful.  Get in touch with us for suggestions or issues.  We will follow up with some more posts in the future that outline individual features.  

Enjoy!
