    After re-reading it, it does make sense: you want to sell pictures online. It's a very high-level question, though, that involves many things coming together to work in harmony while avoiding piracy. Somebody will likely be along shortly with more detail.

    This could be approaced in a few different directions.

    In one hand you could custom write a full web application that would run the show for you. It could be quite involved from implimenting an some sort of antipiracy scheme to lightbox intergration and shopping cart/checkout functionality.

    However this could also by done by hand writing some static html pages that lists images you have, maybe metion that you have them in various sized or whatnot and give them an email they can contact you on. You would handle payment however you so choosed, Check, Money Order, Paypal, etc.. You would then email them back the photos.

    Both have their advantages and drawbacks. The first example would be more professional and almost totally automated but would require alot of back end work that maybe would have to be contracted out and a bit time consuming. The second example would require very little backend work but it would hardly be automated. The question resides in what method would you prefer implimenting.

    Have you done any research into sites for photographers?

    I'm not 100% sure how they work, but I think you pay for hosting & membershp and what not, they take care stuff that isn't stolen, and keep track of the financial aspect.

    I have an eye for detail like you'd never believe.
