Gallery software offered by market leaders Coppermine, Gallery Menalto, Plogger and Simple Picture Gallery simply don’t offer prospective gallery site owners enterprise-class gallery site software with the following key features:

  • Comprehensive nesting category system, where uploading photographers could suggest new categories and new subcategories with their image uploads.
  • The ability to offer participating photographers a means to sell 4X6 and 5X7 colour photos of their uploaded images with profit from the sales shared with the gallery site owner.
  • The ability to offer various levels of site membership to uploading photographers.
  • A highly versatile admin system where the website owner can control all elements of the website, including photo prices, revenue share ratios, account balances, site membership fees, and multiple banner ad locations to name but a few.

We spoke with the owners of several leading custom gallery sites about the cost to license their software and we were quoted in the range of $20,000.

So we decided to build Gallery Ultimate from the ground up, incorporating all these desirable features, and to offer it at an affordable price.
