    What would be the average rate for building a decent photo website? Any leads, recommendations.

    Thanks,
    -Daniel

    PS: I was initially thinking of doing it myself, but my lack of knowledge would delay it further. So, I'm in the market. Looking for the best price and quality.

    Download Jalbum and make it yourself easily. I use this program to generate my gallery. It's pretty easy to use and requires no knowledge of HTML.

    Not sure what you're looking for, but check out http://www.bludomain.com/interfaces/ I've been toying with having them redo my site for about 9 months now. Prices are the best I've seen around.

    unfortunately I can't help you on this one, I'm kinda old school, I develop the script in notepad (gives me more control, but you have to own html + javascript skills).

    you can easylu make it by yourself, using for example the photo gallery php script that makes alost everything for you. I worked as a web site designer and as far as I'm concearned the average price is depended on how well-built site you want. If you want to upload your photos automatically, that mean using php and sql scripts it will be much more expensive. But you shouldn't pay more than $200 here in Poland :) I've no idea about rates in the place where you live.

    Thanks everyone.

    I love some of the interfaces in Bludomain. But since I'm not making any money from photography at the moment, I don't think I would want to go to that price range.

    Has anyone heard of smugmug? Any comments about them?

    Thanks!

    I use Bravenet for hosting and built my site using Dreamweaver. Bravenet can give you a domain and tons of webspace with subdomains and email for about $85 a year and they offer all sorts of goodies to better equip your site.

    Project 7 makes a gallery generator called "Showpic" built as an extension to dreamweaver that is pretty simple to use also. It does take some knowledge of how website design is done but learning a new skill is always a plus.
