    Add photo gallery to Dreamweaver created pages

    Joan in MA
      Hi. Please accept my apology in advance if there has already been a forum on this subject.

      I am very new to Dreamweaver and trying to not mess things ups too badly. I am trying to maintain a website for a local non-profit and I don't want to have to buy Fireworks in order to create photo gallerys of our fund raising events. I can easily create a gallery in my Adobe Photoshop program but can't figure out how to link it to my events web page. Can someone help me do this in easily understood non-techie terms please? >^..^<

      Thanks! Joan

          Could you use something like Google's Picasa?

            Hi Murray,

            I'm not familiar with Picassa but I will check it out tonight and give it a try. The problem I am having with using my Adobe Photoshop program is that the photo album doesn't come up as one single file I can link to like I can to a PDF. (I've finally gotten the hang of linking to my PDF's so that I can post entry forms and event posters.) I will have to wait until after work tonight to play with it but I will let you know how I make out.

            Thanks!

            Joan

              Hi Joan,

              I've started using the galleries that photoshop uses on my web site. It's pretty easy to link to them. After you've created your gallery in PS, look in the folder where you saved the gallery files. You should see an index.html file. This is the file you need to link to from your events page. Copy the entire galley folder to the server, then link to the index page from the events folder and that should do it.

              I'm using one of the flash gallery templates from PS and they look great. Check it out at:

              Click on any of the first four galleries to see how they look.

              Good luck,

              David

                David,

                Thank you so much for your help!. It really is easy to do once I remembered how to put the gallery from my local file onto my server. Now I have the photo's from our two latest events up for everyone to see. This forum is really great for non-techie beginners like myself.
