    Small piece of advice: use a webhost that doesn't require
    the viewer to sign up for a service he/she probably doesn't
    need and half a ton of junk mail.

    I am sorry about that, I thought if I gave the direct link to my pics, it
    would automatically take you there, but I just tried it and yes it wants you
    to sign in. Bummer, well I will just have to find somewhere else to put my
    pics -

    any suggestions?

    If you use Imagestation's "invite" function, it will send out an
    invitation that non-members can use to get into the gallery. (Try
    inviting yourself, then copying that link to a news post). I don't know
    the specifics on how to do this (I don't use Imagestation myself but
    have friends who do), but look for something that reads "invite" or
    I like Pbase's setup -- $23/yr for 100MB, no ads,
    automatic resizing of images to the viewer's preferred size,
    customizable galleries with CSS. If you don't want to pay, try or

    Try, they have some of the best prices around.
    Yes, of course, it's not a "post-and-watch" host like Imagestation,
    but if you don't know html, you can always use a program like
    Front Page (server extensions are included), which allows you to
    use password areas, macros, forms, Java applets etc.. You get
    100mb of storage + unlimited traffic for only $4.95/mo. I think it's
    a great deal.

    PS. I have no business relationship whatsoever with the
    quoted webhost, other than being a satisfied customer.

    Well, I'm sure you are perfectly aware that there
    is no such a thing as a "free" meal...

    Yeah, Geocities is free BUT you get very
    limited traffic (and once it's gone your viewers will
    be greeted with something like: "sorry, this page
    has reached its alloted traffic and can't be viewed
    - try again tomorrow"), very limited storage (10-20
    mb or so) and lots of pop-up ads to annoy the crap
    out of the most patient viewer...

    Oh yeah, last but not least, they reserve the right
    to pull your stuff whenever they want (as per User
