Sell Photo Plugin Usage

Create a new post/page and upload your photos by clicking on the Add Media button. Once you have all the photos uploaded you can select them and choose to create a gallery (on the media uploader window). Insert the gallery and switch to Text mode to view the shortcode. It should look similar to the following:

[gallery link="file" ids="687,688,689,690,691,692"]

All you need to do is add a “sell_photo” parameter and the plugin will create a payment button for each gallery image.

[gallery link="file" ids="687,688,689,690,691,692" sell_photo="1"]

By default the price specified in the plugin settings will apply on a gallery. But you can choose to specify a different amount.

[gallery link="file" ids="687,688,689,690,691,692" sell_photo="1" price="6.99"]

Publish/update the page to view your e-commerce photo gallery.

  1. Is there a watermark option to protect the photos otherwise they can right-click and save without the need to buy making this plugin obsolete.
