I think what helped me when I started to learn how to do a Website was that I had materials that I wanted to publish on the Internet. I was completely gung-ho and driven, and that does make learning that much more focussed and motivated. All I needed were the tools to publish the Website. It was the content that spurred me on. I learned by doing. I tried various software programmes, including writing my own HTML, however, found FrontPage the easiest package with just the right amount of sophistication for me, as well as familiarty of MS-Word style editing including Undo, spell check, cut and paste from Word, etc. When I first started using FrontPage 98, it had its own photo editor, but I preferred a light version of Adobe Photoshop LE that had been bundled in with Adobe PageMill 3.0. I had purchased the latter Website software while I was experimenting, however FrontPage came out more practical for me. Very recently I had cause to download GIMP for photo editing and am getting to the stage where I prefer it over Adobe Photoshop LE. I am not big on bells and whistles for Websites, however do want to learn more about publishing Videos on a Website but in the most economical way from a file size point of view.
