How do you sell your photos online?

Update: Sorry, the poll wasn’t working over the weekend. Problem is solved now (I think). Please give it another go. Thanks!

If you sell your photos online I’d love it if you added how you do it to our quick survey below (you may need to click through to see the poll). Do you use a service or do it yourself? Which service do you use? Leave some details—a mini-review, concerns, or praise for your service—in the comment area if you like.

  1. I clicked through to the page from my RSS reader, but I still don’t see anything clickable, just the survey results. Am I doing something wrong?

    Anyway, I fall into the “haven’t sold any yet but would love to someday” category. I have no dreams of making a full-time living off my camera, but would love to make a bit of income just to fund new toys.

  2. I use Gallery2 with a Paypal plugin and it works really well. However, though Gallery2 has a very nice administrative backend, there can be problems. I wouldn’t recommend it unless the photographer has development experience and knows how to trouble shoot problems.

  3. Like the excited enthusiasts above, I would use it for automatic incremental nightly backup for all my pcs and mac. It would store and share media, allowing pics linked to facebook (my wife is smiling), and music, video and pics streamed on demand. Because it data duplicates and balances, a failed disk will not lose my data!

    1. Or it could mean that many of us just upload them to the many photo sharing sites out there. Flickr,DeviantArt,Panoramio,Pbase,Photobucket,PhotoSynth, which ever you prefer says otherwise about you stating that many of us do not wish to share our photo’s to the public.
