No Web skills are needed and photographers can be selling their work as digital downloads or prints within minutes of signing up. Easy to use browser-based editing with video tutorials and set-up wizards ensure that even the most non-technically minded can use Luxipics.
There is no limit to the number of photographs or galleries, plus any gallery or category can be secured by password and custom watermarks. Music can also be added to galleries during slideshows. More advanced tools are also available at no additional charge, for those that want to extend the design parameters even further.
Luxipics software even provides a built-in shopping cart allowing customers to buy photographs, downloads or even book studio time using all major credit cards securely via PayPal.
