Create a Website With Your Photos!

The internet has made the world smaller. It has become easier to communicate, be in touch and keep in touch with people around the world. In short, the internet has made the world we live in into a global village, where everything we want is ready at the click of a mouse or a touch of a keyboard. Innovations abound and improvements are made almost on a daily basis.

With the internet came websites. Companies big and small have them. Buying a domain, making a website and maintaining the website has become easier too, thanks to the advent of software and better technology. Websites are not limited to companies, businesses and organizations. People like you and me can have a website too. Even if you have minimal knowledge in applications like HTML and CSS, there are tools available which enable people who are “technically challenged” to create their very own nook in the web.

One of the easiest ways of making your own website is through programs that area web gallery generators. In other words it makes a website out of photographs. There are of course websites like MySpace and Facebook which are social networking sites that enable users to personalize their very own space and make it their very own. However, unlike these social networking websites where only members can view and access your photographs, these programs and software take it even further by making you totally in control of your photo gallery. Sure, MySpace and Facebook and other web 2.0 companies offer easy to make web based websites but these companies also control your input, photo sharing opportunities and other services. When these companies go off line or out of business, your data can be lost. This is the price to pay for the free services these companies offer.

The service offered by these companies and websites is not limited to photographs. Other options like sound and audio are available. Clients and users can do voice overs or narration or opt to put in sound effects in their websites. Video and text captions can also be added and uploaded. Another option is to arrange photos in a slide show for easier viewing purpose. A very cool function is geo-tagging where users are allowed mark photo locations on Google Maps.

And because the client has total control over their websites, they can be customized via a custom HTML editor where widgets and other tabs and themes can be added to the site. If all of these seem overwhelming especially to first time users and to those with little or no background in web design, there is a custom editor where ready made themes are easily uploaded with minimal effort on the user’s part. Links for the header and footer can also be changed as well as navigation bar options.

Clients can also make money from their gallery. Google AdSense and other sponsored searches can be displayed. If clients want to sell their pictures, PayPal and a buy button can be integrated as well.

With services from companies like these, it is now easier to be in control and stay in control. If you are tired of people making money out of your pictures, then look no further. With this kind of technology, you can make money by creating your own photo website, be protected and stay in control of your photos and pictures.
