    Default PicFair - any good?

    We've done some photography on a few events recently and it usually falls to me to upload photographs to Google Drive and then manage payments for these images.

    It's beginning to become a lot of work - we did an event at the weekend, where I only managed to get out and take around 100 photographs because the rest of the time I had a queue of people wanting to buy photos. My wife took well over 1000 and to be honest, managing that many was a lot of pressure on what, for us, is still a hobby.

    What I'd like to do is set up a page, upload the images, Picfair will watermark them, we point the customers to said page and it'll do all the rest of the work. As far as I can tell, Picfair looks like it'll do the job, but has anyone used it and if so, what's it like?

    Obviously more complex editing will have to be done off-line, but that's OK.

    I've not used PicFair...I use zenfolio...it costs about #100/year but you can set up your own price lists....its worked for me for several weddings, and sold the odd set of specific shots from the general gallery.

    Thanks Brian - I had to ditch PicFair in the end - it just wouldn't do what I needed - it took over 24 hours for them to put the images up - no use to me.

    I've now settled with PassGallery which seems to do what I need - not found any major issues yet at least - and I'm still on the free version which seems to be pretty good.

    Picfair were quite quick in refunding my subscription once we determined they couldn't do what we needed.
