Upload & Sell: Off
I'm curious to know what the prevailing thoughts are among this wedding photographer community regarding the sales of digital downloads vs. prints.
I use Zenfolio to proof my images and handle any print sales. Zenfolio permits us to offer digital downloads under various license types (i.e., print use, web use, royalty free personal and commercial use) and we control the image resolution. I think there are positives and negatives to this model. As I see it, the positives include: I can price the files to net more profit than a print, there are no shipping costs for buyers, and they get the file immediately. The downside of this model is that you no longer have control of how the image is used.
Am I overlooking something? I'm wondering what others think about this. Thanks for the input.
