Online Licensing via Photoshelter

I have recently completed an online image archive powered by Photoshelter. I am reluctant to send my "A list" images into a stock agency I use since I need to retain control over how they are used, and this is not possible with stock. Many of my licensing clients want rights managed usage and exclusive use for a certain time period and format. I found a good solution to manage this using Photoshelter. I have a new licensing site integrated with my main web site that allows key word searches and online purchase of rights managed licenses. I think it will also help me manage the various requests for hi resolution images since I can authorize clients to download them from the site, saving me time and expense of mailing dvds. The new site can be accessed from the "Image licensing" link on my home page, and from the photoshelter link.
