    creating a new downloadable, browsable and embeddable photo album for
    the web

    Here are the easy steps to create your own browsable photoalbum (which
    you can share with your friends and they can download back full res
    images if required):

    1) Get a FREE AIM account and login to http://pictures.aol.com (This is

    the only site that i know of which allows you to upload unlimited
    number of pictures - also you can download back your pictures - no size

    and space restrictions).
    2) Upload all your pictures by clicking "Create Album" link once you
    login
    (Tip: Use IE and download the prompted activex control to do drag and
    drop).
    3) Select the pictures you want to be in slideshow and Click on share
    and give your own email .
    Logout of the aol pictures (this is very important)
    4) Next, you get an email. Click the link. Next, click "View as Guest"
    link
    5) Now, copy and paste the url in the browser address bar to anywhere
    you want to publish
    pictures for your friends - in iframe in email etc.,. - no login
    required. The link looks like
    http://pictures.aol.com/ap/viewAlbum.do?user=guest&mode=guestView&sha...

    6) Next, to get slideshow, just change the words in the above link from

    viewAlbum.do to slideshow.do
    So, above url becomes,
    http://pictures.aol.com/ap/slideshow.do?user=guest&mode=guestView&sha...

    Take this url and publish it in any webpage you want.
    7) To embed this slideshow in your web pages, you can use the iframe
    trick.
    For instance, the sample html looks like
    <iframe marginwidth=0 marginheight=0
    src="http://pictures.aol.com/ap/slideshow.do?albumId=51266.1218.1134857437..."

    width=800 height=830 frameborder="0" align="center"/>

    Download pictures to your computer Click on the browsable link,
    selecting "Actions..."->"Save to My computer". Note down the url in
    the address bar. This can be sent to your friends or used as a direct
    link to download the pictures back to your computer.
