Can anyone suggest a free photo album for puttting on my Family History Website. I downloaded the excellent Web Album Generator last month, but it is incompatable with my four year old nvidia graphics card.
Rob, I have downloaded Porta, but have a few queries. I emailed Mike Stegman, but it didn't get through. My message read: I have downloaded Porta and put it in the image folder of my website in Expression Web. It deleted all the other images which I had there, which I wasn't expecting, but I have replaced the important ones, I think.
Also, can I rename the index.html file to fargusgallery.htm?
Presumably I can then upload it useing the ftp method in EW in the usual way? Your help notes sound as if I can, but confirmation appreciated.
"I have downloaded Porta and put it in the image folder of my website in Expression Web. It deleted all the other images which I had there, which I wasn't expecting, but I have replaced the important ones, I think."
I'm a little confused by this. You should have run Porta and pointed it at the folder containing your images. It should then produce a folder containing your gallery in the same folder as your original images. It shouldn't delete the originals.
I haven't used Expression Web, but to add the gallery to your site, insert the entire folder, you could rename the folder fargusgallery, so your link would look like this: click here
You dont need to rename the index file, as the browser will automatically find it, if you point it at the folder.
Actually, I have also tried AAA which looks good. But one question on this - I want to edit some of the 'labels', but it seems to me that if I go back to the last image set and right-click an image, the box show ALL the images with the old labels so I have to go through the whole lot of images again and relabel them. Is this correct, or what have I missed?
Hi Sheila, To edit the labels in AAA, you need to create a Gallery Project, before you press the final Generate button. Then edit your album by opening the gallery project, rather than the last image set. Note that if you move or delete the image source files, the gallery project will no longer work.
