    Hi there.

    I am looking to create a website and my Foliopic account is up for renewal, so looking at the options.

    I have been directed to the following ..

    Foliopic, I feel the templates could do with a bit more creativity and livening up. Certainly doesnt look to have many new ones added in the past 12 months. Maybe its me looking with my eyes shut, but a freshen up wouldnt go un noticed.

    Smugmug, they dont appear to allow print ordering in the UK unless you go for a higher priced package, and even then its expensive. The templates look nice though and the customization options look fairly broad.

    Clikpic, I like, but its complicated and not easy to navigate the customisation options. I find it difficult to understand whats the custom fields refer too.

    Zenfolio, seems to be my preferred option at the moment. Templates are good, price is right and the customization process seems to be easier than Clikpic. Prints from the UK.

    I would love to be able to design my own using Wordpress, Dreamweaver or other tools of the job, I can get the software easily enough via work. But I dont really have the time, let alone the skill.

    Anyway, I guess I am after some input, suggestions and direction from other peoples experiences.

    As always, thanks for the help.

    Phil.

    Send a link to a style you are after and the guys may be able to create something in a similar vein

    Why not go for a normal web site?

    Don't discount Joomla and Wordpress

    They're not dedicated photography frameworks, but there are many many photography "themes" available.

    Not that familiar with wordpress but looks to me like something requiring more skills than I have
    Hence looking at the world of ready made templates
    I will certainly look into Wordpress though as its not the first time the name has come up

    Thanks

    It would be wordpress for me and there are some great themes available. Its not too difficult to learn the basics and there are no annual fees except yout hosting plan.
