Web site software packages

lynnetteSeptember 9, 2004

Most of the software to design a web site are geared toward a small or large business. Then you have the one or two personal pages. I need one for mainly botanical type photos. There will be about 500 photos, thumbnails to go to full screen. I do get some space with my ISP but it is only 5MB and I will need much more. Can you reccommend software for a beginner. Here is what I have done so far on ZDNet SiteBuilder. Thanks for any help.

Hi Lynn Looks like you've done a very good job so far, but I realize you were probably using templets provided by znet. I recommend you learn to do your own html and you will have more control over the way your pages look. Infact you can see what they look like now by simply going up to "view" in your browser and then to "source". Copy it and then paste it in Windows Note Pad. This will give you a visual look inside what your pages real look like. There are so many great tutorials on the internet to learn html and the need for confussing and restricting software is unnecessary. As far as finding a place to put your website, there are quite afew out there, but I would stay away from free ones. They are very resticting and usually your pages are filled with adds and popups. I recommend Boomspeed.com where you can get 100 mgs of storage for $6.00 per month and there are no adds, no popups, no bandwdth limits and you get a guess book and free email. Another plus is a terrific support forum where people will help you with the html too. Thats always a plus as far as I'm concerned.

Good luck and if you have any questions just email me......another rose lover ;o)

Get JAlbum ... it makes "albums" of thumbnails with links to larger pictures, and can even upload them for you.

best of all, it's FREE!

I have never heard of jalbum, but I looked it up. Sounds like it might be ok for someone who wants to have an online photo album, but still very resticting for someone who wants a website IMO. I'll stick to my advice above and recommend learning HTML.

BTW, if you have Photoshop it has a similar program for creating web pages without having to insall another program on your computer. Also keep in mind that "free" programs always come with an advertisement attached. Maybe even spyware due to downloading it off the internet.

JAlbum does not have ads attached, nor is it spyware. It's a Java-based web album creator. It makes it much easier to create a large photo-heavy site because it does the thumbnail creating and linking to make the pictures show up.

It was written to handle the sort of problem the OP needs to solve:" I need one for mainly botanical type photos. There will be about 500 photos, thumbnails to go to full screen."
