    Chaps

    Simple question, what is the best way to display digital pictures on the web ?

    Would it be better to upload all of the images, if so, how do you get a thumbnail image for the viewer to click on to see the full picture ? Or would it be better to upload something like a powerpoint photo album for people to flick through the pages - can these be printed by the viewer ?

    I have an Olympus Mju410 and have access to Powerpoint, Word, Frontpage, Camedia, Photoshop etc...

    Looking for some ways to display our wedding photos - any advice welcome.

    Cheers

    If you have your own webspace I would suggest using jalbum (jalbum.net) to make a gallery - there's loads of skins to choose from, you can make your own and it also has an ftp function built in to automate the upload procedure.

    Best of all it's free.

    Alternatively as you have Photoshop that has a gallery function (files..automate..web gallery or something like that) although I've found it quite restrictive of image size unless you want to redesign one of it's own skins.

    The other option as keaneyboy suggests is a dedicated online gallery. A list of options is here...

    Downsizing the original always helps, but so did £1000 of lens and D-SLR. :) Throw in some good fortune, a steep learning curve, and 1000 photos taken in 2 days, and you'll get there in the end :)
