    Anyone use these services?

    What I would like to be able to do:
    -take a bunch of pictures (actually our photographer will do that - I'm just learning)
    -host online in a photo gallery so people can see them (sports action shots)
    -offer them for sale
    -don't want to have to hassle with processing the orders, printing or shipping

    We don't expect a huge volume, so I can't justify the cost of this entire production on own, so I am looking to use one of these services.

    Anybody use these before? Feedback? Other suggestions?

    check out smugmug or zenfolio

    allow you to set-up your own site and set your own prices.

    They are very similar, smugmug allows you to create your own website if you know how to do that sort of thing, otherwise they both have templates to set up a site.

    I use zenfolio, you can check out my site here: www.chiclephotography.com

    Is your site hosted by zen? Or can I buy hosting from another provider, but use Zen's templates?

    hosted by zenfolio. I have the pro plan so basically all of Zenfolio's logos are removed from my page.

    I like how Zenfolio gives you the option to crop the photo the way you like it.
