  1. New CPS Program - Anyone Signed Up?

    I have been a CPS (Canon Professional Service) member for a number of years and have found the service to be pretty good.

  10. Websites to host your pro gallery

    Currently I am using Photoreflect.com There are several things that I am not happy with. 1) Customer Service 2) Propriatory Software required to upload and manage you photos. They require Darkroom. It is free or at least the Web edition is. 3) they take 18% of all sales. Now the plus...

I am on the fence between a Smugmug Pro account or staying with PhotoReflect which I've had with my current biz. The big difference is that now I won't be...

  13. StockPhotoSpot

    Anyone tried StockPhotoSpot? I see they are advertising heavily in our header banner via Google. I'm just curious if anyone has tried them out.

  14. Walmart Studios

    I've always been baffled by how the operators of Walmart's portrait studios can sell for what they do... I think there was a sign the last time I was in Walmart for something like $3.99 and you get a whole package of pictures... 8x10s, wallets, etc. Is this good for the industry? I don't really...
