Is it right for me?

Hi all

I'm thinking of using FriHost as my first webspace.
I'm not looking to make a fancy website or anything just somewhere I can display my photography.

Is it the right webspace to be using? Can I upload my pics to it?

Thanks

Jake

yeah you can upload your pics. And if you want you can add a whole lot more. If you don't understand something there is a big community to help you.

But if you only want to upload pics and display those for your friends I'd suggest something like flicker, which is easier to learn and start with.

If you want to be able to configure a bit more and change everything to your own liking then frihost is the place for you Smile.

I am using FriHost to display my photos (http://photo.mattyj.org) its a slow process moving them all, as i currently have them at pbase

But if you have any webpage experience, i recommend downloading the program coppermine photo gallery (http://coppermine-gallery.net/) and installing it on your web space

Other wise, something like Pbase (http://www.pbase.com) or SmugMug (http://www.smugmug.com/) would probably be easier for you (but they arent free Wink)

with fatastico you can install some picture systems on your hosting.
4images Gallery (1.7.6)
Coppermine Photo Gallery (1.4.16)
Gallery (2.2.4)

You can google them for more info. And it's a lot easier than installing them from scratch. But still harder than just uploading them to flicker.

Hi thanks for all the advice!

I dont really want to use Flickr or Photobucket etc I want somewhere to display my photography which is sort of my own site if you get what I mean.

I'm new to all this so any advice is great!

I may sign up for a page and give it a go anyway Very Happy

yeah then you should use frihost. Setting up shouldn't be too hard with a little help probably becasue it's your first time using a webhost.

Well I have applied for mine and waiting for the outcome now.

Good to know there are people on here to help Very Happy

Sounds like a good idea to use Frihost for your pictures. Not sure how you want to present them but a sometimes a little discription under the picture helps the person relate to want is being shown. Just a suggestion.[/img]

Just bear in mind there's a 250MB limit (quite easily reached with photos?) and you have to be active on the forums to keep your hosting. As far as I'm concerned a dedicated photo site is usually better, except for the ads.

Nah it'll take a while to get there with pics. Especially if you compress them a bit, you can get pics of 250kb (easy calculating Razz ) or less.
