    I've been using a smugmug pro account for 18 months now. Yes people can, and will buy your shots if it's something they want.

    My only complaint with them is it takes forever to upload a lot of shots, but I guess their about like the others I use.

    I like the idea of an image hosting service that allows people to purchase my images but a quick look at the prices on Smugmug has me running. Theirs are at least a third higher than other online print services.

    I like Zenfolio.com. Like Smugmug, you can set prices and sell your work with their premium account. I preferred the look of zenfolio's gallery and slideshows, which is why I went with them over Smugmug. Otherwise, the two seemed very similar. I was also looking into ExposureManager.com, and their support most impressed me - but their galleries are blah unless you design your own, and I didn't want to have to bother with that.

    I can propose www.clikpic.com
    Generally it's the platform to create a portfolio. But with opportunity to custom your own design and sales.

    I'm selling my prints on zazzle.com
    I get 17% of the profit (have it set up to be donated to charity, not really interested in trying to make money just wanted to do something productive with my photos)

    If you sign up you get 10%, then if you become and associate you get 17%. I am an ametuer and not sure if my photos would be accepted to the big professional places, so I started using zazzle (started on 5/29/08 and have sold 6 things so far)

    Thanks Lori, I needed a boost! Yesterday after reading this thread I submitted some of my stuff to Shutterstock and got rejected (sob sob). I will recover, haha, but it did hurt a little.

    Oh well, I am here to learn and hopefully will get better.

    I forgot to make the zazzle link clickable... here it is if anyone is interested (any other ametuers in here)

    I have been using www.zenfolio.com for personal use for years and am extremely pleased with it. They have a pro option as well, that allows selling your work. I plan to try it out shortly.
