One of the things that first caught my attention about PhotoDeck is the 0% commission fee. It has cost us over $2000.00 in the past few years with the high processing fees charged by other proofing sites. That's not even including the monthly fees we were being charged. The money we will save using PhotoDeck this year alone will pay for our Pro PhotoDeck account for the next 4 years - Matt Hobbs
