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...
