Watermarks and passwords can help protect your professional work from unauthorized access and downloads. These options are controlled by the account holder. The account holder can also set the size, text and style of the watermark. The marks show on screen and prevent high-res downloads but do not print. This makes the site ideal to use as a proofing site for event and professional photographers, with easy fulfillment at the host retailer. Sharing tools allow photographers to send out direct links to protected albums, or prepare ahead of time with a static account link and password.
Photo retailers, if you offer printing services to your pros, you can offer them their own custom Photo Finale website for a low, one-time fee. The photographer can have his or her own logo and branding on the site, set the prices, and the orders come to you for printing. Or, use the same kind of subaccount site for your own studio or portrait work…the site can have a different product mix and different pricing for your professional shots.
