Gallery shopping system for photographers

Post by Redneck » 09 Feb 2011, 00:30

Hi there,
I hope I can get some advice on the following issue.

I'm a photographer and I would like to set up a Joomla website including photo galleries and shopping system. I have experience with Joomla, but not with any gallery components or shopping cart systems. But I hope I've come to the right place anyway.
This is what I want to do.
* Joomla website with a good looking template (I've pretty much already chosen one)
* unlimited galleries with the option to password protect them for clients, slideshow of gallery images
* shopping cart integration. so the user should be able to buy one or more pictures from within the gallery with different characteristics (like photo prints 5x7, 8x10, image file downloads, canvas etc.)
* of course the design/layout (template) should cover website, gallery and shopping cart system

Any ideas how to get this done? Is this possible at all or am I expecting too much? Any help is very much appreciated.

Thanks, but the Simple Caddy won't do what I need. I need different options and different prices for every single picture and I need to have this done automatically whenever I add new pictures to a gallery.

Hi, there is some addon to add the products automatically.

For now I don't know any other solution than the simple caddy :-(

Thanks again but it looks like none of the "Joomla solutions" is really suited for professional photographers with their specific needs.
