Wow. Some great advice and plenty of options to check. Thanks to you all.
Francois, RapidWeaver looks good so I will download that this weekend and have a play. Thanks for the link.
Lois, thanks for the idea of using a blog page. It hadnít occurred to me. There might be a problem with being able to arrange the images I want but itís certainly an option I will explore.
Mark, thanks for your detailed reply and the links. The workflow seems attractive, especially the ďREAL EASYĒ bit! As Iím aiming for a minimalist feel, I really donít think I need bells or whistles so I will try your route as well. I do have Lightroom and played with the gallery bit but I wanted to be able to move text around and couldnít see how to do that. Maybe Iíll look again because youíre right about how easy it is to create a gallery. By the way, I like the images on your site, especially the London pubs. I think I have probably sampled most of themÖ
Wolfman, thanks for your link. Your site is fairly simple, in a positive way, and the sort of thing I will probably do. Some great product shots there.
Tom b, isnít it great when teenagers show you how to do itÖ but I guess thatís ageist. Thanks for your link and Iíll also give it a look.
Thereís a lot to check here but I will plough through as fast as possible. Thanks again everyone and if I happen to come up with a site that looks like any of yours, I promise I wonít have copied you Ė itís quite difficult to be very different when keeping it simple. When the thing is finished Iíll include the address in my posts. To be honest, I havenít done so up to now to save my embarrassment!
