    do u have domain name & hosting service? setup an online gallery with these...

    http://coppermine-gallery.net or http://gallery.menalto.com

    then add shopping cart scripts / plugins into your gallery.

    Or if u have Photoshop, read this.

    Or if u know PHP, Joomla, Mambo, then I recommend using this module extension.

    hi, thanks for the reply. i have yet to get a domain adn server. visited the coppermine website. so if i get a domain and server i can just use the software to do the uploading via ITP? like frontpage?

    thanks. pardon my ignorance on IT matters

    easiest way if u know Fronpage will be setting up a photo gallery with FP , then sign up with Paypal and add Paypal "buttons" to your pics. Paypal scripts are easy to use, but if u have hundreds of pics then will be very troublesome u know PHP?

    u can find some free web host but i would recommend getting a paid one.

    tried using frontpage once but nearly died linking thumbnails to full res.

    and dunnot PHP. are there any hosting sites that i can purchase doamin off the site and have template to start selling photos. i think i would not have the time to learn PHP! need this up by 4 weeks!

    Found one which is easy to use and free, excluding domain name and web host of course.

    - Get JAlbum.

    - Add in any of these 4 skins with integrated shopping carts, 3 of them are using Paypal for credit card payment.

    - Start customizing.

    just reg a .com, get a hosting, preferably local hosting...

    then change the nameserver to the local host.

    then inside local host, you can ftp your works in...

    if u wan a simple to use gallery, i suggest using lightroom to make your gallery... its simple yet look very professional.

    coppermine & gallery2 need to have knowledge about php and stuff... sometimes it gets really complicated.

    Do you need domain masking? If you don't need, then Photoshelter will do cos you can do domain re-direction.

    If you need domain masking, try www.squarespace.com.

    It means that if you key in the URL www.yyy.com for example, if you have re-direction service, you would be brought to http://www.flickr.com/photos/xxxxx. If you have domain masking, you should see the address as www.yyy.com still, instead of the flickr's address. Some other service providers call it by different terms.
