    I've never really had the patience to get into a flash site but my stuff is extremely outdated and I have almost NOTHIN from this year in galleries to see, etc...


    My 3 big questions about flash sites:

    How hard is it to add new photos or sets?

    How hard was it to setup passworded access?

    Did you set it up yourself? and if you did how much experience with flash did you have prior to doing so.




    Thanks :wavey:

    bludomain.

    You buy a pre-made template.

    Everything is easy to understand, upload and change content at your hearts content.

    so link off to another site for your customer stuff. Zenfolio lets you rebrand, and it works pretty well.

    YEah I link back to SmugMug for customers to go into their private galleries and print at their leisure if they don't want to use me and my options through Millers.

    I have a client proofing section in my Blu site with a shopping cart and intergrated paypal. I'll get an order emailed and do the printing for the customer is they didn't buy a cd to do their own printing.

    The thing I like about having customers going to SmugMug I guess is I don't have to charge them sales tax through the business if they buy the prints themselves. If I do the printing for them, then I have to.

    i built mine myself, so it doesn't have a back-end, meaning i have to actually edit the files to add pictures. It's not drag and drop unfortunately like the template sites.

    best thing to do is, find something with a CMS / Admin. or XML.


    good cheap templates can be had at www.activeden.net
