    Question Web Site Photo Store Script/Program?

    I'm looking for a script/program for my Web site that will allow my clients to log in so only they can see their portraits (password-protected gallery with shopping cart) and buy them via credit card (direct online, not saved into a database for off-line charging) on the site - but I also need a public area of the site where anybody can buy (via credit card, direct online) prints offered to the public.

    I'm not looking for a site host, a monthly subscription site, a shopping cart that looks like an amateur built it fifteen years ago, etc.

    I will be doing the paper prints myself to a certain size and outsourcing giclees and extra large paper prints to a local company, so I don't necessarily need a cart that will send orders to printing companies (gift items like mugs and such sound like a cute idea, but are definitely not priorities or deal-breakers).

    I have seen a few monthly-fee sites that otherwise have some good features (but I don't want a site host and don't want to pay a monthly fee), but they look terrible and far from professional.

    Any recommendations?


    ETA: To clarify, I am talking about no monthly fees for just the shopping cart script/program itself. Obviously credit card abilities are a whole separate thing and require fees!

    I've been using Gallery2 and have been pretty happy with it. If you're not looking for hosting then I'm guessing you are at least web-savy enough to install it on your server. This program is very stable and highly configurable with several thousand templates and plug-ins available including a dozen payment processing options (I had been using Coppermine, but like this FAR better)
    I would probably stay clear of Gallery3 for the time being as it's targeted more to the casual user that doesn't want to configure/modify or be confronted with a lot of choices.

    Re: Web Site Photo Store Script/Program? has a full feature store and you can password protect your events. They use a very high quality lab out in L.A. that services Hollywood. Been with them for 3 years now. Great stuff.

    I have been using and been really happy with the service and TLC. Password Galleries if you want them, watermarks(your own or use theirs) I been with them for a few years now, signed up in 2006. You have two labs to work with there. Lots of things you can do to customize your site. I am a little rusty but I could build my own site and figured why bother when I like what they have to offer me as a photographer.
