Getting your images on the web
Many graphics packages like Photoshop, ACDSee, CompuPicPro etc can automatically generate a HTML photo album from your photographs, creating an index page of thumbnail links, with some offering free server space to upload your images.
An even easier way to get your work online is to use one of the many free photo sharing sites like www.zing.com, http://www.photopoint.com and www.myfamily.com.
These let you post up your photos and create your own online interactive photo albums or online multimedia slide shows
Of course, if you really want your work to stand out, it's best to create your own individual photo gallery using your preferred HTML editor or totally free editors like Arachnophilia and the excellent 1stPage.
