Fullfilment of your products is a very important thing to consider, and services such as the said ones above manage your photos, fullfilment and workflow best. Photo shelter is very professional looking with a fairly good UI, but lacks some features others have, and is pricey for gallery integration (design matches your site's design...etc). SmugMug has great support and a decent system but again misses some advance features. One major plus about PhotoShelter is it's Aperture plug-in. MorePhotos has good features but has a pricey subscription cost. The major benifit of MorePhotos and PhotoShelter is that they do not take commision. I just started using EM, and have been working on my site. So far I don't have many photos up yet... just two events. Ultimatly I'll probably be selling more nature/scenic photos than event.http://photos.imcgallery.com
P.S. What do you think of the logo? I designed it myself from scratch. Thats technically only a slice of it... you can see a small version of the full logo here: http://www.imcgallery.com
. I'm working on renovating my main link into a flash based intro/about area.
P.S.S. - Great photos!
