    I paid $300.00 to have my website designed by the same company that host the site. Great service and they maintain the site for a monthly charge.

    I would add that clikpic does have built in payment gateway for paypal although its not used in this example and they don't take a cut for providing the service. i.e. the transaction remains between you, your client and paypal which is not the case with some of the online photo site hosts.

    cheap alternative

    a paypal equipped site for photographers can be purchased for $40 at

    http://www.flashcomponents.net/compo...te_paypal.html

    I'm using it and it's pretty easy to setup and maintain. trouble is, if it's not exactly what you want, you have to talk to the creator.

    There will be a lot of photographers winging and moaning that their beloved website doesn't work on IPads. He said, rubbing his hands together with glee at the prospect of many photographers having their sites rewritten in css and html so that they work on an IPad.

    Excellent point about Flash for websites.

    Apple doesn't support it, seems intent on abandoning it and IIRC Adobe is working on a non-Flash software. Given the increasing prevalence of Apple, that should tell you which way things are trending.

    And Apple bought & own Macromedia, the originators of Flash.

    I think apple will support it but not until adobe produce a less processor intensive version. The issue for IPads is the battery consumption and flash will use that up pretty quick at 24 frames per second. The battery in an IPad would get much shortened useable time when playing any video so its not really a flash issue at all, its a battery issue for apple to sort out. But if you want super light and slim that's a problem. But having said that flash has been getting more processor intensive in the last couple of major releases (9 and 10). This likely due to a big increase in the use of actionscript which is like javascript in that it can be very processor and memory intensive if not written well.

    No they didn't. Adobe bought Macromedia.

    SimpleViewer is easy and free, with the Pro version very inexpensive so you can customize it. But as others have said, since it is Flash based, Apple handheld devices will not support it. I currently use SimpleViewer Pro, but am looking at abandoning it and moving to HTML5 to change my site.

    My first photography site I created myself using html/css. However, I found updating pictures was quite laborious and I was spending too much time at the computer making changes to the site. I've also considered a custom site done by a Web Design company, but found them quite expensive especially with the on-going costs for hosting/support. Since then, I've used ifp3 with great affect, they are reasonably cheap and provide an admin interface which is pretty self explanatory. They have lots of different templates to choose from and also they support Ecommerce, SEO, site stats which is neat. My only gripe is there is a limitation on the customisation of your site such as adding ads etc.
