    Hi All

    My Sis in Law designs stationery and has asked me to design and build her a website, that will show off her work. I pretty much have an idea from sitting down with her and sketching out ideas of the design and themes we want to try out. Shes also a photographer so all the stock images will belong to her for any graphics so that should also be a cinch, What im a bit new too, is incorporating a ''gallery'' or ''catalogue'' to show off her work. She also wants to be able to update herself with her work as she goes.

    Can anyone recommend the best way to go about this, im open to learning new ideas and new technology.

    Just want to also say Hi as im a newbie and this site is really helpful, thanks for letting me in!

    Cheers
    MissT

    Well, this is kind of a tough one ...

    You should use CSS (and not tables).... although tables are OK for tabular
    data like a gallery of thumbnails. So maybe a mix of CSS and tables.

    In order for her to be able to update it, her webhost needs to support
    PHP and/or Perl. It will take a server-side program to handle the uploading
    and Content Management for her site.

    All this being said ... you mentioned you're a newbie, so this might involve some
    stuff a little more advanced that you can do?

    As far as displaying her work, you should get ideas from other sites.

    Example, this site uses CSS, tables, <inline frames>, and Perl scripting.
    I know about their Perl scripting because I helped them with the scripting.
    But you can get an idea of using thumbnails and full-size images to create
    a gallery.

    http://www.collaborationgallery.com

    There are millions of gallery sites online, and many ways to create them and
    control management ... all of which may require you to hire someone to help out.

    She may just want to sign-up for a remote hosting service that displays her images,
    not really a website of her own, but a place where people can see her work.
