I’m primarily a family/newborn photographer, but I have done some photos of animals and landscapes and am considering offering those as prints to the general public. Is there a way to do this through Shootproof? I know I could create a public gallery, but I want to make sure those visiting (to order prints through my lab) DON’T have the option to download (which I know I can set in the gallery settings) or screenshot my work. I’m just not sure if this is possible through Shootproof right now, or if I should look into a different platform for the general e-commerce aspect.

Hi @KarissaJohnson! Great question. ShootProof is designed to deliver image to a specific client and isn’t optimized for general sales. That being said, you pretty much hit on the settings that other photographers use to make ShootProof work for general sales (disabling downloads). The only exception is that ShootProof has right-clicking disabled, but not screen-shotting. 

One of the notable differences for general public sales is that ShootProof does not have a marketing platform to draw in customers the way that Society6 or other platforms do. This is the way ShootProof was designed - to send links to a designated client group. It’s not better/worse, it’s just designed for different purposes and you get to choose which suits you best!
