Sites such as PhotoBox and RedBubble let you to customise your galleries, and you can also set your own prices.

Web galleries

Though, most photographers will want to have their own website, and as any serious photographer knows, you will have to put your hand in your pocket at some point. You can create your own gallery in Photoshop as well as in most other editing software, and insert that into your personal website. Building your own website Building your own website though does take a certain degree of knowledge.

There are many sites where you can go to, that are easy to use, but contain fully customisable templates for a small fee.
