Dropmark lets you create simple galleries of images, videos, audio files and websites (the full live site will display within your gallery). You can create a gallery and just drop stuff in and share it with other people. It's got a super simple interface, it's web-based and it's free, which makes it a breeze to use. At Hyperakt (design studio) we use it to collaborate amongst ourselves and with clients on creating mood boards for projects, to present sketches to clients, and to make youtube video playlists (which automatically play one after the other). Super simple. Super useful.
Dropmark offers super simple drag-and-drop file sharing, like a number of web apps before it, but if you want to use it for more you can create presentations, slideshows, and collaborate with others just as easily.
You can see the basic functionality of Dropmark in the video above, but here's a rundown. You create a collection of files, drag those files right into your browser, wait for them to upload, and then decide how to share that collection. You can make it public or share with individuals. Depending on what you upload, you can use a collection as a (full screen) photo slideshow or presentation. You can even add video and entire web sites. You can also add music from SoundCloud and Vimeo and YouTube videos. If you'd like to see an example of a web site collection, the folks over at Dropmark created Choose Your Ipsum to demonstrate.
In the event you don't want to visit the Dropmark site to upload your files, you can just install abrowser extension that'll bring up a sidebar you can use to quickly add files to any collection. Currently Chrome, Firefox, and Safari are supported, but you can add a bookmarklet to other browsers as well.
Overall, Dropmark is a really fun and simple way to put together online collections of all sorts of things, whether that means files you've uploaded or various types of content from the web. When you sign up you get 250MB for free, but you can pay $48/year for a 25GB upgrade.

Dropmark combines a web-based interface with a Mac menubar item for quickly collecting & sharing. Dropmark’s web interface offers a sidebar for easy uploading, and a bookmarklet. Dropmark is great for creating, sharing, and collaborating on scrapbooks full of related stuff.

Dropmark is simply amazing and I predict in the next few months it will become big. Right now Dropmark has not hit the mainstream but with all it's features and it's beautiful design, it is only a matter of time

Dropmark is a great resource for anyone who needs a simple way to collaborate online. Users can collaborate with team members or get clients involved in the project planning process. The drag and drop interface works for anyone, even novice computer users. Dropmark makes the entire collaboration process fun, interesting and extremely practical. Free and economical paid memberships are available and can work with almost any budget.
