Default OT: Web Publishing Software

Dear Friends,

I want to spend time on DIY, not web design, but I want to share my projects with you in an eye-pleasing way. What software do you recommend to publish a page full of thumbnails of my projects which link to larger, higher resolution pictures?

I have my own webspace; I'm looking for WYSIWYG software into which I can just dump my pictures, then upload them all with a single click.

And it ought to be affordable ($free-->$50US)

Thanks,
Dave

Check out:

You can post 240 full size, not compressed like yahoo, etc. pics for free.
Small rant from an IT guy. Many times their servers are soooooo slow to take the uploads, the images except for the advertising can take a loooong time to open and no one answers your e-mail questions, ever.
And since it is free, lots of nagging e-mail to sign up for "premium service", but free is free. With service this bad, I can't imagine paying for it. My boss would have a cow. Rant closed.


Prosit

Here is a very easy to use solution. You may need to transfer your domain name to this site, but the prices are very good, so it may be a good thing to do anyway.

Ok this is not pretty, but its simple, banner free and was a way for me to get out of doing some work for 10 minutes You can use it if you like. You just edit the html file and add your thumbnail filename, your full image filename, and a description. Looks very basic, but I thought I'd offer it on the offchance that its simplicity may appeal to you

Vikash,

It will certainly do for the immediate future.

Thanks,
Dave

PS--do I have to "make" thumbnails"? I'm assuming yes.

It sounds like what you really need is one of the many free PHP-based online gallery scripts and a simple FTP program to upload all the pics. Something like picKLE will automatically generate all the thumbnails for you and optionally allow you to add captions to each picture. Tiny sample gallery here.

This is really not difficult to setup and use, but presumes a couple of things:

- your web host uses a unix/linux variant and supports PHP (most do)
- you know how to make directories and such on said host
- you are willing and able to edit some lines in a text file as part of the initial setup, and possibly to set the permissions on a directory or two (easily done with most any FTP client).

Once picKLE is configured and uploaded, making a new gallery would consist of creating a new directory on your host and uploading all the pictures to it. picKLE then handles the rest.

If this sounds like a useful solution but you are unfamiliar with FTP programs, I can recommend some free ones which would make the uploading process easy and transparent to varying degrees.


edit: oops I see I typed too slowly and you have already found a solution. Well, maybe something like this would be useful down the line.

No, no, not too late at all. All the things you've described are a go for me; I can FTP stuff to my webspace and create directories and Unix and Linux, the whole works. My domain provider supports PHP and whatnot. I'll look into it.

And thanks.

Dave

The key word I did not know until introduced to Pickle: Gallery System. That's what I want. A Gallery system.

Thanks.
Dave
