    I am in need of a portifolio website, and i know basic html. But my questions are, Do i have to manually put every single photo in there using code or is there a program i can use for this. Also, about how many hours am i looking into building this, a good looking one?

    Just use Dreamweaver or something...
    I know you know html, but it is probably a better idea to make sure your code is xhtml compliant as per the W3C's outlines.

    I've not looked at my own copy, but I believe that PS Elements has some capabilities towards creating photo pages, guessing that the full versions have something in them too. If all else fails, then resort to Notepad... ;)

    Fastest solution :

    A basic template with all your photos can be easily done in Photoshop. Just select your photo folder & the software will automatically generate the html's for you ! Its neat & takes only a few seconds to do.

    Alternate solution :


    Either you could now proceed to tweak the Photoshop generated html's or use Frontpage / Dreamweaver to create something from scratch. You could also download a site that appeals to you and modify that html using the mentioned softwares - its like using a readymade template. Just replace all elements & text with yours. As you gain confidence, you can re-design it. Regarding access to software, beg, borrow, whatever works.

    Checkout sites like pbase.com, flickr.com and blogspot.com
    You might not even want to do anything else. Hope this helps.

    For a good one, give yourself a few weeks. I spent 3-4 months to finish mine : http://vinnyc.110mb.com
