seen it, done it, fixed it....

used to do it for a living...

hated it....


pricing... now that's exciting and cheeky, how much can you get away with Wink

Start high... they may just go for it, or they may disappear
Too low.... you're working for bugger all and that's not a good vibe

Database.... you're getting paid, no rush, just bang out those queries till you suss it out... Wink

avoid clikpic.

i have a site with them and it was stupidly unintuitive to build.

serves me right for going at the cheap end of the market.

Anyone mind if I hijack this for a second? I hear a lot of good about Will and Photium. We're looking to launch a website for our equine business, nothing to do with photography. Is Photium purely a photographic template site or would it be suitable for more general stuff (no shopping cart involved..)

(I'm asking on here instead of looking as at the moment my connection is going at snail's pace...)

I can't speak for Photium, but foliopic is pretty flexible.

Does any one know any good sites to show images I am currently with Clikpic and looking to find somewhere new to show my work.
Any pointers would be welcome.

I have been using foliopic for a few years now, and it seems fine, easy to set up, a range of mobile friendly templates, and at a reasonable cost. It does slide shows and you can pick the cost appropriate to the level go functionality that you want from the site, you can also link it to your own domain name. It's probably not the best example but feel free to take a look at mine, www.searlephotography.co.uk

foliopic also has an easy template designer which means your site can be completely custom without any knowledge of code. Click 'Create a Template' and choose Template Designer.
2000 is a very good budget and you can allow yourself a not big custom website. Why don't to use WordPress - it's a very good solution by price-quality ratio. Or do you still want to use website builders? Check this review of website builders for photographers, perhaps it's exactly what you're looking for.
Give Creative Motion Design a look if it hasn't already been mentioned? Lots of great templates, great customer support and very reasonably priced. Save your cash or spend it on equipment instead Smile

I use a full screen wordpress theme which is very easy to use....


I've got 4 which use it

Dead simple really - though it's one I use to sell a service, rather than market photos for sale. If you're selling lots of photos, maybe look at piling your photos into FLICKR then using a wordpress plugin to pull them on to your site - you get 1TB of free space on there, if you put them on your own site, the disc space may cost a fortune!

Don't worry Jodie. I think some people have Lucian on the brain............ you'll soon come across him on here - he's a slightly, er, controversial character! Wink

Is he still about? Not been around myself for a while.
