Well, I would recommend this site first. ;) Discussing the editing and post-processing of photos is one of the primary purposes of this site, and as a strong support here, I can't help but promote it. It may be rather slim right now, but given the overall success of StackExchange sites, I do not doubt that this site can become one of, if not the, top ...

Get involved in things. Comment on photos, add contacts (such as Flickr) you are interested in and get involved in forums. If other people see some interesting and well shot photos of yours lying around the net, they may be interested to see more. As such, if you interact with people about yours and their photography they may be curious about what your stuff ...

Send emails to friends and family when you update your gallery. If you sell photos through your gallery, send your customers emails as well. Forum posting is nice, but then you end up with other hobbyists, rather than a good 'target audience'. Find, instead, people who might be interested in the photo and will post to their facebook pages or twitter, and ...

I haven't used it before, but I have heard good things about pixelpost: http://www.pixelpost.org/ Pixelpost is an open-source, standards-compliant, multi-lingual, fully extensible photoblog application for the web. Anyone who has web-space that meets the requirements can download and use Pixelpost for free!

I believe you could use flickr for that. You can set a group there, post those photos in this group - this means they are all reachable from a single place. Although Flickr doesn't support voting on photos directly, in stackexchange style - "upvote"/"downvote" you can post the votes in the comments. Just my $0.02 Edit: I believe it also wouldn't be ...

Piwigo is an open-source photo gallery you can install to a subdomain of your site. There are many themes and extensions, access control by password, and editable CSS if you really want to make heavy customisations. I use it on my site and I can definitely recommend it.

Your two main choices are Gallery 2 and Zenphoto. Both offer plugins that offer shopping cart functionality. Gallery has more sophisticated choices, but unfortunately, the Gallery developers have a habit of throwing everything out and starting again — Gallery 2 is a total rewrite of Gallery 1, and Gallery 3 is another total rewrite. And, the latest version ...

There are some "film" group on flickr where you can see pictures taken with it. I'm administrator of a french one, and force users to tag their pictures with the film used and camera; and then I've created a front-end website to explore the pictures of the group: http://www.e-cerveau.com/argentique/ It's in french, but go to the "Films" page, choose a film ...

I've been using Photoshelter for the last few years, it isn't the cheapest solution out there, but I believe it is the best. The customer service is great and it makes it easy to sell your images as both prints and electronic files.

I used to have my own CMS, which I wrote specific to my purposes, but ultimately decided to go with Wordpress in combination with the NexGen gallery plugin. I've been happy with it and, if you don't have the hardware to host your own, Wordpress offers hosting. I'm running directly myself, easy as pie to maintain.

I use Piwigo, it's dead easy and has many plugins, themes, and options. It's also free and open-source if that matters to you (if not it certainly won't get in your way). You can use it with your own hosting, or pay Piwigo to host and manage your site. From their website: "Piwigo is a photo gallery software for the web, built by an active ...

Gallery, from http://gallery.menalto.com/, makes another good option. The 1.x versions had some scalability problems, and the 2.x series was a bit over-complicated, but the current 3.x version aims to be just right (and looks to do a pretty good job of it). If you want to do more than just display photos, Gallery 3 isn't a great choice — the interface for ...

If you don't mind a bit of coding, I can personally recommend Pwinty. They have a simple RESTful API for ordering prints that you invoke from your site. You are responsible for billing etc. and they then invoice every month. This gives you complete control over everything and is very professional. Your prints can be shipped with your invoice and branding so ...

If you can't find a gallery, you could trial one or more Photoshop/Lightroom plugins that have filters for simulating different film types, and run them on a neutral digital image of your own to get an idea. DxO Film Pack Nik Color Efex Pro Both have filters which cover a range of Agfa, Kodak and Fuji films and try to reproduce the contrast, colours, ...

How many other similar services can you name? they're really few. So, no, I don't think that flickr is dying, considering that they're relatively unique in this business. truth is there are not many online services like flickr. If you don't want to pay for it, flickr is still the best available service IMO, it lets your visitors to interact with you and ...

(I was meaning to post this answer right after making my post--but didn't have the privileges to do so. In the meantime, there is a good answer posted by AJ Henderson that I want to take a look at.) Here is the best solution I've developed so far. Resources Windows 7 platform for tagging .jpg images Access to a hosted server on bluehost.com Part A -- ...

Have a look at Trovebox. It's a hosted service but you can use your own subdomain. https://trovebox.com/feature/whitelabel In addition to being 'skinnable' you can share using password protected albums or even create groups with signins.

Check out Peecho they have what they call the Simple Print Button. It is a simple snippet of HTML which you can add to your site. This generates a Buy Print button and handles everything else, from selection products, shipping information, payment, customer support, printing and delivery. You can set a margin on each product to earn some profit. There is ...

You can do this with Shutterfly through the Shutterfly API. However, this may run into some of the same complaints you have with Fotomoto — credit cards required, for example — and, worse, if you have a Shutterfly account, you get promotions and deals almost every week, and those can't be applied to prints purchased in this way. Also, in this case, all of ...
