I own and run Professional Photo Lab in NJ. I have been looking for a serious solution for my internet site I have in mind. There seems to be one giant hurdle in the way of this and most, if not all solutions do nott allow a customer to upload multiple images at once. The best solution thus far is zencart which has to be the best out yet (Magenta looks reeeeaaaallll good so far)! The lack of template options with zen is a real bummer too but most of all, it seems to be real difficult for people to produce what I am asking for. I basically need to create a product called “Proof Prints”. If a customer selects this item they can then select attributes such as paper finish, various borders and so on. Then they can upload a folder of images to the order right to my server with a corresponding identifier of the order so I know what it is when I need to print it here. A java uploader or something of the sort.
Then they continue with the order and pay only upon a successful upload.
Anyway, how possible is this? I think since this is the infancy of this system maybe there cound be a “Print Shop” version or addon somewhere down the line.
I look forward to trying Magenta when it becomes stable.
