I am pressed for time for a website, and and am still struggling with my job as creating websites. i have two questions for those who might be able to help:

1.) How would you put together photos online to be used easily? Are there programs or ways and such that would allow easy viewing? (ie. photoalbum?)

and

2.)I need to edit the photos to use throughout the webpages as well and wanted to know which program would be faster/easier to learn, since I will be starting from square one for both for them of them.::Photoshop or Fireworks::

Since im working with dreamweaver, i'm inclined to use FWs, because its partners with DM, but both programs I will need to learn from scratch and I can't decide which one would be easier and better to learn and use to get the job done.

thanks' a bunches for reading. :tazz:

You can use Irfanview to batch edit/convert/rename photos, and it's free besides. There are any number of programs, many also freeware, which can make thumbnail pages to specification. Batchthumbs is a good example. You can also find slide show presentations, flash player presentations, etc.. If you're getting some expensive program just to do very simple editing, cropping and converting for web pages you're spending a lot of money you don't need to.

well the reason why i would use these two programs is because I have them both from work to use for free to maintain the website.

I'm actually a very poor college student, who probably won't be able to afford those programs for myself any time soon lol

thanks for your reply :tazz:

I use PhotoShop constantly in my work and I love it. I know nothing about Fireworks. It can be a little tricky to figure out how to use the fancier aspects of PhotoShop (or even know what incredible things you can do with it!). There are excellent tutorials on the web for PhotoShop. I suggest that you google them up if you decide to use PhotoShop. Hope this was helpful!
