I started using PhotoShelter when Digital Railroad shut down at the end of October. I am impressed with the many features of PhotoShelter and the ease of use. It's working well as a way to provide clients with photos and let them download high resolution files.
I haven't had any sales yet from people who have just gone to PhotoShelter and searched as they would a regular stock agency/portal, but I haven't expected any since PS doesn't currently have any marketing promoting itself as a source for stock (or fine art/decor prints).
In addition to being an effective means of delivering photos to clients, it is also an online backup for image files. The owners assure everyone that the business is solid, generating a profit, and that they are in no danger of having to shut down like Digital Railroad did.
I have no hesitation about recommending PhotoShelter.
