  • You will be more mindful and authentic - Tookapic is designed for you to focus on YOUR story. Not to keep up with influencers. There are no push notifications or company profiles. On Tookapic you’ll be sharing your photos mostly with your future self. At your own pace.
  • You will start to appreciate everyday moments - What you see on Instagram is a curated highlight reel, not the real life. By documenting every day, no matter if it’s good or bad, you’ll learn to appreciate your mundane daily moments.
  • You will create a memoir you’ll be proud of - Would you show your Instagram profile to your grandchildren? Yeah… that’s what I thought. Me neither. On Tookapic you will create a legacy. A photo album you’ll be proud (and not embarrassed) to show.
  • You will present your photos in style - Tookapic is a perfectly proportioned, chronological photo album. Your images will display in high quality with little to no compression. Neatly organized in custom galleries.
  • You will be the best photographer among your friends - Whether you want it or not, you will improve your photography skills. It’s impossible not to get better when you practice every day. Your friends will be jealous.
  • You will actually browse your photos regularly - Take hundreds of pics every day. Never sort. Complain phone is full. Fill hard drive. Never look at the photos again. Sounds like you? Well, no more!

Tookapic makes me stop and look around and see the beauty right in front of my eyes, whether I am at home or travelling around the world.

We believe every day is worth celebrating. This is not Instagram. This is life. Unfiltered.

We strive to change the way people share their photos online because we believe photography is more than applying a vintage filter to a snapshot.

By sharing one photo a day we tell our stories. The good ones. And the bad ones.

We don’t pretend. We don’t brag.

We document. We improve.

One day at a time.

In a world of oversharing and overdoing it, we’re embracing simplicity and cultivating a refreshing revolution.

Forget what others are doing online and embrace the evolution of your own life. There’s more to life than likes, followers and influence.

As you share one photo a day for a year, you’ll watch your own chronological timeline come to life with simple and spectacular memories that have shaped your story.

An album for your "not-to-be-forgotten" family photos that don't belong on Instagram

Do you ever ask yourself: "Where did the time go? It wasn't THAT long ago since we came home with out first child, was it?"

There's so much going on in your kids' world. And you know that without a proper album all that will be forgotten over time.

Tookapic is a warm and friendly place for photos like that. Not only the Instagram-ish highlights, not only "the best of" reel, not only the Disneyland trip photos but also the candid shots of precious moments, unposed "slices of life" kind of album.

Tookapic distills the essence of our family life. It’s the only photo album me and my wife revisit everyday. Tookapic is like a self-creating family photo journal. Love it!

Boost your photography skills. No fancy camera needed. No experience required either.

You might be disheartened because of your lack of experience and expertise. That's normal. We've all been there.

With Tookapic's photo-a-day challenge you'll make your photography intentional. You'll go from "spray and pray" mode to shooting with a purpose.

The self imposed requirement to take, edit, and post a photo every day will do more for you and your photography than anything else.

During my first year on Tookapic I learned how to set proper exposure for different situations, how to use manual mode, how to get results I want, how to edit photos and so much more...

Why is Tookapic paid anyway?

To keep the lights on. Tookapic is just two people team. What you see here was bootstrapped from scratch. There is no big investor behind this project. And that’s good. Nobody will make us sell to a big company and leave our users with nothing.

Besides that - Tookapic delivers value. Every single user who paid for Tookapic said it was 100% worth it.

And last but not least...

Tookapic is a job for us. A job we love, but still a job.

Sounds good, but you're still not sure if Tookapic is right for you? Please read this.

As attractive as Tookapic is, I know that only a fraction of people will take up the challenge. Although that's ok with us from a business standpoint, it still bothers me personally.

You see, I know how much our users benefit from Tookapic. I read their emails, their comments, I talk to them in person and hundreds each year tell me that Tookapic has proved to them they can stick with a resolution. It boosts their self-confidence. It improves their photography. It helps them live a better life.

Because of this I just hate the tought of someone not trying photo journaling due to some error in our explanation above.

That's why I tried to figure out why you might say "no" to our free trial. I listed all the questions you might have.

Funnily enough, the answer to all of them is yes.
