DeviantArt is a good option for a lot of people - submit your artwork, make sure to include a good handful of "tags" so people can find your artwork, go through the process of signing up for a print account during the artwork submission, and when people want to purchase the artwork - DA handles the rest. You get to sit back and relax while they worry about sending everything out correctly.

Print on demand sites such as redbubble, zazzle and cafepress. I wrote a squidoo lense all about How to Sell your Art or Photography - http://www.squidoo.com/selling-artwork-photos

Basically you upload an image of your work which can be made into cards, posters, magnets, shoes, skateboards, mugs, calendars, tshirts... tons of items available then every time someone buys it you get a percentage. The POD site take care of the making, shipping, payments.

Yes, the secret to making money with art/photography is to use several sites and in themed and seasonal ...that way you don't sell just one at a time but may sell a couple at a time. Use several sites maybe for each package and that way you are generating money from different sources. Never put your eggs in one basket as they say.  Undecided a few other sites also ...
-- shutterstock, Fotolia, Flashden, dreamstime, revostock, turbosquid, istockphoto, vectorstock and scoopt. Let us know how it goes for you.  Smiley

Since everyone owns a camera these days the competition has gotten really wild. People like prints, but they also enjoy photos on things they use and wear. With Cafepress, Zazzle and the like, along with stock photography places like iphoto.com, you can go beyond prints and a chance for a wider audience for your photography.
