All images submitted to Painet will also appear on a free website of your own, hosted by Painet... for free. Any images you already have on the Painet website will automatically be transferred to your website. This website has all the features of Plan B below. 100% of the sales revenue from this website will go to the Photographer/Agency. Any orders from your website will go directly to you. If you are not able to fulfill orders, for any reason, Painet will fulfill your customer orders for a 20% fee. To setup your website, read and follow the instructions for Plan B below. If you have studied Plan B previously, we have added several important features. 1) The ability to change prices. This can be done once each year. 2) Increased search capabilities. The default search is now AND with stemming. The previous RELEVANCE seach is still selectable. 3) New, improved cosmetic additions, such as on page preview with mouseover close, thumbnails more centered on the page.
