Displaying Photos: Premium Gallery or Deluxe Web Site

So, you think you haven't a clue whether your gift-recipient has his or her own Premium Gallery or Web site? Hmmmmm. If you don't know, then the answer is "no". For example: Five minutes (OK, it was closer to 1 minute) after my own online gallery at BetterPhoto was activated, everyone - I mean EVERY ONE of my friends and relatives - knew about it! That's true of all photographers ... you are sooooo excited, you just want to tell the world!

Best yet, BetterPhoto makes it so easy for a photographer to get a gallery or Web site up and running ... no tech know-how required! There are three excellent choices to satisfy any budget. Check them out at:
