Eddie Clayton runs a successful business as a pro photographer.
-> Take a look at his photography (http://www.eddieclaytonphoto.com) and you'll understand why the word successful is in the above sentence. Eddie is a new jAlbum user, but quite familiar with photo and website services.
How did you get in contact with jAlbum?
I have created websites using many methods. Everything from scratch html, standalone apps, expensive Photoshop plug-ins, and Lightroom webmodule extensions. Although these methods all created professional looking websites, they were all difficult to tailor to my taste and tedious to maintain. Just as I was becoming extremely frustrated while trying to update my site (with a well known Lightroom extension), I came across the jAlbum article in Shutterbug. I previously thought that jAlbum was just a photo-hosting site like Flickr or Shutterfly, in which I have no interest. The article excited me and I went immediately to your website and downloaded the jAlbum trial. Well, it took me about 10 minutes of experimentation to realize that this was just what I had been looking for. I re-connected and purchased the Pro version immediately.
How does jAlbum help in your work flow?
I spent maybe 6 hours with jAlbum generating my site. I then spent another 10 hours refining my photographs to look the way I wanted them to look for the site. I am ecstatic. My site has a professional user-friendly interface and appearance. I am currently reviewing additional photographs I plan to add to the site. I get to spend my computer time tweaking photos instead of fighting with site software. Bravo jAlbum!
Tell us about your customers
I make a substantial portion of my income selling prints. I have discovered that my best customers are Doctors, Dentists and other professionals with "waiting rooms". Its important to have a professional and user-friendly site to service these buyers.
