Your product base are all the products you might want to offer for sale. When you create a price list or collection, you will add the products for those from this product base
You have 3 different sections in the product base:

Adding / Editing Products
Product Display Name
This is the name of the product that will be shown on the website. Example: 4x6
Your Reference Name
This name will be shown on the order to you. This might come in handy if you want to have an standard 8x10 and a canvas 8x10, but don't want to name it "8x10 canvas".
Select from Print, Download or Other.
This is the default price for the product, but you also have the option to override the price when you add it to a price list.
An optional description you can enter for the product. Best not to be too long as it can clutter up the price list.
Print Dimensions For Prints
Enter in a print dimension will allow the customer to custom crop the photo. Example, if it is an 8x10 print, enter in 8 & 10. Doesn't matter if you enter in 10 X 8 or 8 X 10. The crop will be determined by the photo.
If you don't want to offer the option to customer to crop their photo, enter in 0 & 0 in the print dimensions.
Do not allow discounting
With this option selected, the product will not be discounted by a coupon or early bird special.
Download Size For Downloads
With a download product, you need to enter in the maximum pixels of the download photo. This will be the maximum pixels on the longest side of the photo.
Example: if you want it to be a web size photo of around 1200 X 800, enter in 1200 for max pixels.
To offer the largest size available, enter in 0 for max pixels.
Do not allow download until I upload a replacement file or manually approve it.
When selecting this option for a download photo, the download file will not be immediately available when a customer places an order.

To offer a free download where the customer can download the photo from the gallery for free, check the Free Download checkbox. This will create a download icon when viewing the photos (not shown on the actual price list).
