->> I am presently using Zenfolio. Not only is it very good, but it keeps getting better.

Before Zenfolio I used Exposure Manager. I think in 3 years with EM I had only one order where there was a problem with printing or delivery and they fixed that beautifully. I switched to Zenfolio because at the time Zenfolio offered more options for customizing my site, but from what I've seen, EM has made some very nice upgrades to what they offer.

Both Zenfolio and EM will do a great job for you.

->> Eric:

Does it concern you that Donovan Janus and his developers are no longer involved with Exposure Manager (the original owner and developers) and that there will be no more future upgrades. EM was sold to Simply Color Labs over 3 years ago. Donovan and his crew are on to other business pursuits

Also, is Simply Color filling your clients orders? They use a much different process for prints than labs like MPIX, Bay Photo, WHCC, etc. I believe they are using ink jet printers.

The reason I left EM:
1. No future upgrades or application improvements.
2. Print Quality
3. Ordering Processing - Too many errors with clients orders.


Would appreciate your thoughts!!!
