    I'm looking for software to create web pages for my
    photographs - it has to look reasonably professional, but
    allow drag and drop into an image directory and rebuild
    without major complexity. Any suggestions?

    iPhoto definitely rocks, if you own a Mac. You might also want to try
    Frontpage 2002's web photo album building tool. It offers several
    different ways to setup the navigation, and it does auto-thumbnails
    with links to the full size images if you just give it a folder of
    pictures to work with. Frontpage, being a WYSIWYG HTML editor also
    offers more flexibility than say an iPhoto in terms of custom design.

    Well, the truth is that I use and have used a whole range of
    machines (from S/370 way back then to iMacs occasionally at
    work now) and I like to see what's around on any platform.
    However I am currently looking for a Windows based web album
    creator. I should have been more specific...

    you might look at ePhoto Album: http://www.picturegear.com they have a free
    trial and reasonable price. The interface is a bit clumsy, however, it is
    the only one I am aware of that sets captions, allows hierarchical trees,
    and displays the site as it evolves.

    I would love to hear there are others that offer these capabilities.

    JAlbum - Sometime back someone posted about it on this newsgroup. It's free.
    Great software and easy to use. I use it often in addition to Adobe
    Photoshop Elements. Although Photoshop Elements too can create web albums, I
    like JAlbum's interface much better. So I end up using Elements to do image
    manipulations and then create albums using JAlbum.

    I'm sure it's a nice program, but the same thing can be done with html
    and tables. Once a basic template is made up, changes are no more
    than substituting one <img= > for another.

    Arles is $49.00. Another poster has suggested jalbum, a free program
    which seems to do the same thing. However, the advantage of learning
    basic html is that the user can go *beyond* the menu of pre-formatted
    templates when the need or desire arises.

    Using just web sources and examples, I learned enough html to
    duplicate the Arles page in about a week of evenings. Lest the reader
    think I'm some kid that grew up with a computer in his bassinet, I was
    born before they were trying to crack the Enigma code at Bletchley

  9. Jim,

    it's easy to overlook that IrfanView can do it too.

    I've already used it once and then modified the result by doing
    global search and replace operations on the resulting HTML.

    IrfanView is very good for pictures that are relatively small,
    i.e. no more than 640 x 480 pixels. It automatically creates a
    thumbnail page with clickable thumbnail pictures and one simple
    HTML page for each of the big photos with previous and next
