    Dropping Photos on the Web

    I have my own web-site and from time to time drop photos on the site for friends and relatives from all over the country to view. I have been creating pages in Front Page but am looking for software that allow photos to be dragged and dropped onto pages (using templates for example) and then with a click of the button, create web-pages that I can upload to the site.

    I'm probably pretty naive or lazy (one or the other) and it could exist in Front Page but I'm looking for something that I can rush to publish rather than spend lots of time in preparation. You know, drag, drop, publish. Does software exist that makes it this simple?

    Which version of FP do you have? FP2002 has a new 'Photo Gallery' component:
    <hr>Quickly and easily create a Photo Gallery to display personal or business photos or images. Select from several professional-looking layouts. Add captions and descriptions, reorder images, change image sizes, and switch layouts when you want.<hr>
    I have not used it myself so cannot comment further.

    (You can drag photo's into FP from Explorer.)

    I only have FP 2000. Looks like this provides the answer - I'll have to check it out, thanks

    The JASC people (Paint Shop Pro) have a program called Media Center Plus that does what you want. It's $29 bucks if you download and you CAN download a trial if you like. Take a look here Media Center Plus if you think you like their products.

    I didn't care that much for their product, but that's 'cause I'm already set in my ways! I have a lot of pictures all over my web pages, so if you go to my web site and start by clicking on the photo of my grandson, you can take a look. I use a javascript that works pretty easily (view source). The slideshows are a completely different topic, so come back here if you want to know more about them.

    Sorry, John! When I said I didn't care that much for their product, I was talking about the MEDIA CENTER software.

    I couldn't live without PSP! Besides some MS junk, the only other I've used was...... uh, I can't remember! I'm an old guy!

    Sorry for the grammatical corn-fusion.

    Thanks, Al
    I had a quick look at Media Center Plus and I tend to agree with your diplomatic review. I also don't care that much for this product. Frankly, it's a little clunky for my liking.

    Your website is very impressive. I'll spend some time this coming weekend looking at your source code, although I must admit to not being anywhere near as proficient as you appear to be. Thanks for responding...

    Re: Dropping Photos on the Web

    Nah, I don't know what I'm doing! <grin>

    The javascript is only a few lines and I don't even remember where I got it. From that point on, the only thing I do on my display of photos is construct the tables to decide if I show one, two, three or four pictures on a line. It's not really complex and whenever I have some new photos to add it only takes a few minutes to create an additional table.

    Have Fun!

    Re: Dropping Photos on the Web

    How did you copy that snipet of a screen image to your page? There's alot of times I wish I could've done that when posting to the Excel board. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words, you know...

    Hardcopy

    Please bear in mind that although a picture may be worth a thousand words, it may also be worth a lot on someone's telephone bill. Make sure you use the optimum format and/or compression when posting illustrations. . .
