I used the inbuilt web album from iView Media pro - its great as you can actually create your own templates as well ...... I use Dreamweaver to edit any templates I create.

I understand almost no html and am very much a what you see is what you get (wysiwyg) designer so Dreamweavers ability to do both is cool.

iView is great for cataloging - albeit a bit hexy on $ its still cool.

My example .....

Bill, what are you after?   To just have a location where people can see images on the net or integrate it as part of an overall website?   Lots of options out there.   All depends if you plan on hosting the site yourself, or perhaps you want to just upload images to a site hosted by someone else.

Front Page2003..
very easy too
Front Page is from a company that is very incompetent in it's internet software (IE) and can't code pages worth a darn. The code that comes out of FP is an awfull mess and does no good other than suck up unneccesary bandwidth loading worthless code and make it difficult to impossible for the disabled to access your site. If you want a WSIWYG (What you see is what you get) editor, DreamWeaver is a far better product for only $10 more and won't load your site's code with nearly as much repetative jarble.

If you want to hand-code, all you need is NotePad or any basic text editor (no word processing software!) but I'd recomend TopStyle wich is geared for web-standards and the use of CSS. It makes hand-coding pages much easier.

I built my site with Topstyle and hand-coded my gallery using XHTML Strict and CSS 2. The benefit to this is that the actuall page contains very little code and is easy to find info in it and edit. All visual mark-up is contained in the CSS. Both markup languages are simple and easy to understand.

I'd like a automated PHP based gallery, but so far I haven't seen anything that comes close to what I can make by hand in terms of simplicity, accesability, integration into my site design or speed of loading.

Another option is to use PC CS web gallery under the Automate menu. I've also heard of a way of customising WordPress or MoveableType to be an easy photo gallery management sytem but I haven't looked into that deeply yet...

I echo what Daniel Neeley said concerning Front Page, there is actually one worse, by the same vendor, Publisher..... If you think Front Page is bad, you ain't seen nothin.......

I have done a fair amount of page development over the years (for myself, and under contract), and I like to develop nice easy to maintain pages that are not loaded with lots of java glitz. Most 'by contract' sites I have done - after completion I turn the code and the maintenance over to them, and work on a consultive basis, giving help whenever it is needed.

Anyhow the product I like for page development is Adobe GoLive. It allows WYSIWUG mode, and a very easy transition to work directly in HTML source, with an internal browser. You can bounce back an forth as much as you want between the modes. Since I 'grew-up' doing it all in HTML, I find GoLive to be an outstanding product. For doing the photo pages themselves, I believe the BreezeBrowser Pro product provides the best bang for the buck. It generates all the HTML needed for thumbnails and larger images that you can just cut/paste into your pages. The strong feature - you can develop templates with specialized HTML code that become part of the generated code.

That's my .02........

I found a useful little flash widget for displaying photo galleries which I integrated into my site.

Tanzo Website

Unfortunately my ISP has turned off FTP upload for a week so the website isn't quite fine tuned yet but should give an idea of what the widget can do (multiple galleries, slide shows, caption text, etc...). Its very easy to modify the structure of pictures and galleries using XML.

The widget can be found here : Slooz Expose

The rest of the site is hand coded HTML...I didn't get the hang of the page layout tools.

Neil - if you are responsible for the main website, how did you end up with such a grim colour scheme and bizarre layout for the main menus? I'm not trying to knock your skills, as your main web site is quite nice - though like michael's too overloaded with information to be an effective marketing tool.

Perhaps we can have a discussion on what makes a good web site to complement our discussions on composition (perhaps opgr can kick of with a couple of rules for us  :D  :p  :D ).

I have no experience with it myself, but hear it's good.

No better way to find out than to try it out.

Has anyone had any experience with Adobe GoLive?

I'm on day two of the trial. After a few false starts I'm starting to get the hang of it. I don't know anything about HTML I'm just hacking it together and learning as I go. I should have the new site up in a few days. So far, I like it a lot more than Front Page. That was an exercise in flustration.
It's nice to have the Adobe forum where you can get some answers.

The best place to start learning HTML is WebMonkey.

If anyone is interested in more, just email me and I'll send you a long list of additional resources.

I got an introductory book on writing html from scratch, and turned out a basic photo web site without any web page program at all, in about a day or so:

You can do a heck of a lot more from scratch than I did, too.  For me, I just wanted to keep it simple and let the pictures do the talking...

I too use Dreamweaver, but I'm a software developer, which helps some.
