I want to display photographs and photos of my paintings. I am doing this for fun so I dont want to spend money or pay someone to design it. I am not planning on selling anything on the site, like I said just for fun. I might try a free web host thinking weebly as I can change the code.
Suggestions for blog vs website for Artists. I see most serous artists have both. I have a job and so the art is just a hobby, so not much time for it as I'd like
I was thinking website but am now leaning towards blog???
I also spend little time online and am weary of downloading things from the net. Maybe just comfort level. So I prefer sites that offer the copy and paste rather than "download our file" option.
If you have suggestions for how and where to look for code for displaying images the way I want, I'd appreciate it. It is pretty overhwelming for someone starting out to search and then sift through all the info out there.
Thanks for the help
If you just want to display image in html
<img src="url" alt="image text" />
If you want a marque sort of effect i think using flash will be a good idea. If you use flash you can play around with lot of good features of flash and will have a better control. If you have not worked on flash then its a good opportunity to learn it. It will be worth learning it. Its really great.
