    I've been wanting to get a way for people to purchase prints directly from my site for a while, but most of the software and services for this were either geared toward someone selling a lot more than me, or just didn't have the look I wanted. I ended up finally sitting down to do it myself last night. I wanted a really simple layout, which I think I achieved. I ended up using the Paypal shopping cart since I will only have to worry about fees as I sell something, and I don't have to worry about the cc gateway and all that mess. I also used Shadowbox to be able to see a larger version. I had thought about having links from my gallery pages to a where they could buy the print, but for now decided to keep it separate because I'm using Autoviewer for my galleries, and haven't quite figured out how to do all of that.

    It would be great to get some opinions on it, or let me know if stuff is showing up weird for you. I know there's a few on here that will peek at the code, and yes I know it's not pretty. I used DW to do everything, and I know it kind of makes things hard to read.

    Anyway here is the link.

    One thing that I would like to see is the ability to transition page to page at the very bottom of the page I am viewing.

    Yea, I noticed towards the end that it needed that but spaced it out getting other things to work. I'll be fixing that shortly.

    Does anyone know why the hell the paypal buttons cause the window to exit the maximized state and go to a smaller window? I've noticed it on other sites that use the paypal cart too.

    Yea some lady in PA has dlmphotography.com, which is what I would have wanted. This was second choice. The lady has it registered through 2014, so I don't see myself snagging it anytime soon either.
