    website engine

    i'm just curious what do most of you guys use to publish your photos online? There are a lot of ways to do this and i'm considering investing in a photoshop utility that allows drag and drop publishing.

    What kind of publishing do you have in mind? A personal website? A web gallery/portfolio?

    For a simple gallery, you can just use something like Picasa. It comes with simple post-processing tools, and ability to upload to your Picasa Web album.

    It's not really drag and drop though. More like clicks to choose and upload.

    If I use Flickr I just use the dialogue box.

    If it's my own website then I build the folder on my desktop then upload using FileZilla.

    Unfortunately, Photoshop costs $800. So if you don't already have it, or you're just starting out, it's better to use a free gallery service, such as Photobucket, Flickr, Picasa, etc.

    For my personal web photo gallery, I use Pbase. I've been using it for since 2006. $23 a year for 500mb. I currently have around 5,000 photos online and I'm only using 100mb I was able to customize it using CSS.



    To create HTML/flash format web photo galleries for a business site, I use Lightroom's built in Web module. I've downloaded free Web presets from The Turning Gate (TTG): http://theturninggate.net/lightroom/

    Example of a flash web gallery you can make with LR and a free TTG Autoviewer flash preset: http://theturninggate.net/galleries/...ViewerGallery/

    TTG SimpleViewer gallery: http://theturninggate.net/galleries/...ViewerGallery/

    TTG HTML Gallery: http://theturninggate.net/galleries/...TGHTMLGallery/

    LR and the presets does all the work and coding for you. Simple interface and customizations. I was able to create a flash based gallery without knowing anything about coding flash
