Has anyone used Jalbum. and, if so,could you tell me how to integrate into my web site? There is an explanation but I find it too difficult to follow.Thanks

do you know how to make the album in the first place? If so, you should end up with a folder where all the necessary stuff including photos is enclosed. You need to upload that folder to your site via ftp and then you make a link to the file within the folder that is named index.html. It will then open up the whole slideshow as a kind of mini-site. Look at the url of this (not particularly good) example. It is a folder called ALBUM (you could call it anything) and within it I have linked to the index dot html page click here

Thanks for answering.yes,I can make the album.If I upload to my site how do I know where in the site it would go? I like your album.

I don`t know if you specifically want the album on an existing web site, if not, JAlbum offer free hosting if you sign up:

To see an very personal example, (made only for friends about my holiday in Crete), look here:

Uploading was very easy, using their facilities.

Sorry, I linked to my album twice.

yes, if you want a simple way I'd imagine anchor's suggestion would suit - you just upload to their site and then paste in the hyperlink on your site. As for where you put it if you ftp it up to your own site - that is up to you. If you plan to have many albums you could set up a folder called 'albums' and then upload each new and named folder into that. Then you would get url like www dot mysite dot com / albums /holiday/index . html
It's up to you really. Then on your page you would say something like 'Holiday photos click here ' and hyperlink to them

Thanks for answering, all. I'm afraid you are dealing with a pea brain.

Firstly I managed to upload to my website but it over wrote everything.Then it suggested doing it to a sub-directory which was well beyond me.
I then, as suggested uploaded to their site quite easilly but how do I hyperlink from IE?
Thanks for taking the time.I'm afraid some of us struggle but would like to know.

Do you have your own website back in order and ok now? And you have uploaded to the J-album site your photos - and you have saved the address of your photo album on their site so you can look at it again?
You need to go to your website - what website editing program are you using? If you say which, it will be easier to explain. It will be something like...
on a page of your site where you want to point people in the direction of the photos, type in something like : Have a look at my holiday photos here. Then you select 'Holiday photos here' - it should be highlighted - then you find on your webdesign program a button that enables you to make a hyperlink (if you say what you're using to make your site that will help) A box should come up and you then type in or paste in the address where you can access your photos on the j-Album site. Save, upload that page again to your site and should work.

I use Shozam which is very similar to JAlbum.
I upload my album to my host under index_html/gallery then hyperlink to the precise page in my web site.
