        I looked at PhotoShelter for their stock photo sales ability, but their interface is just not good. Plus, Zenfolio is much more customizable. I truly hope Zenfolio can do something with this for commercial photographers who sell stock.

        Since you don't have this I'm actually going to look at some of the other providers mentioned here

        We are not getting this feature. I asked about FotoQuote integration a year or two ago and was told that FotoQuote has an exclusive partnership with Photoshelter. Zenfolio is not pursuing a partnership in this area with anyone else. Too bad Mpix doesn't offer it!

        Zenfolio definitely does not cater to commercial or stock photographers. It's a nice looking site to display your images, but the sales part of the site obviously caters to wedding and portrait photographers, and their refusal to partner with any labs other than Mpix show that they aren't serious about meeting everyone's needs.

        Seriously this is not happened yet? Photoshelter has had this for ages and this is a Dealbreaker for a lot of photography colleagues with Zenfolio, PLEASE FIX THIS!

        I think this is a great idea and would make Zenfolio a much more rounded platform for image selling. The portrait/wedding slant is fine, but there are so many ways the service could benefit those sellers that are not primarily working the aforementioned photography sectors

        This idea could be the game changer for us. We hate using a different site for our stock photos, and often have thought about switching from Zen.

        I'm on the fence right now but this feature alone has me leaning towards Photoshelter. If Zenfolio had this option it would be a no brainer.

        I too am thinking of moving from Photoshelter and not being able to offer Rights Managed images is a big thing for me.

        This could be something of a deal breaker/maker for me, this while looking to move on from Photoshelter and maybe to Zenfolio. PhotoDeck - the new kid on the block - has an interesting implementation of its own licence calculator - may be not as comprehensive as PS's but it's in there nonetheless.

        Plus add the ability so an image only has to be uploaded once, not two separate uploads: print/product, then digital products. I've uploaded the file once, don't make me do it all over again. Too many hoops we don't want to jump through. Like Photoshelter.

        Another vote (well 3 actually) for a rights manged calculator and license generator.

        It is the way the industry is going and not offering it will soon become a very limiting factor for anyone selling outside of the one client per shoot market.

        The Zenfolio print service is brilliant, however like many others report a digital right managed calculator it is a compelling reason to move to photoshelter.

        Or is this the dividing line between Photoshelter and Zenfolio. Digital Rights Management verses brilliant print delivery options?

        This would make commercial and stock so much simpler. I'm in the process of setting up digital products / licensing options on Zen and it's so unwieldy to create all the different licensing scenarios and related license details/text (print only, print & web, unlimited, limited, time-sensitive etc).
