Protecting your images

  1. I probably cannot build a website from scratch but there are templates that I could use. I want to post my art nude images for sale and don't want to use other sites because they limit the choice of papers you can use does anyone have any suggestions as to how to proceed?
  2. Any photo posted to any site on the internet can be stolen!
    The best form of protection is to not post any photos, but that's not real practical. So 2nd best is big image-spoiling watermarks across the middle of the photo. That might not be too desirable from a marketing point. The third best way is to make your photos too small (in pixel dimensions) to be desirable to steal, but they might not be desirable to purchase either.
    You have to figure out which solution(s) best fit your needs and your degree of risk aversion.
  3. I can't tell if this question is about selling prints on non-standard papers, or protecting images from being lifted off of a web site.
  4. It's a bit of both naturally I don't want images to be stolen but I am also trying to find a way of selling images on quality paper like hahnemuhle
  5. Zenfolio provides you with templates and some security features that you can enable (or completely customize depending on technical knowledge). It also handles commerce, as well as fulfillment via print partners -- not sure what paper they use. If none of the print partners provide what you need, Zenfolio also allows you to self-fulfill each order.
