I was going through my Microsoft’s OfficeXP Special Edition exploring its new features. One, which I found very intriguing, was the new and improved FrontPage for creating your own websites. It has the ability to create photo albums for the Internet. I could not believe how easy it was to do. Basically, you take your folder of pictures and paste them on the web page - Way Cool. If you want to see how my little test album came out, go to: Great Smoky Mountains Internet Photo Album Sampler
But I digress. What really got me going after this discovery was the potential of what we have here. Image this for a moment - a live photographic album that you can share instantly with your family and friends, just by posting them to the Internet for all to see. Think about the advantages:
q No more, “Gee, where did I put that photo?”
q Or “They promised to send me the pictures of the party!”
q I wonder how those wedding pictures came out.
q I sure miss her/him - I wish I had some pictures.
q I can grab that picture off the Internet and save it as my desktop photo.
q My family heritage with text and photos; plus, they can e-mail me additional details to add to the site.
q I can burn this on-line photo album to a CD-ROM and make copies.
q I can add music and sound to each picture.
q I can add a hyperlink to a picture so when it’s clicked-on it plays a short video.
q I can show photographs of what I am offering with text and sound explaining its many features and benefits.
Do you have an idea? I’m sure you can think of an application for this one.
