    I took a heap of photos at Christmas and want to dump them into a web page to share with others. Just the pics without any text or formatting.
    I normally use MS Word to make my web pages in WYSIWYG view although I know basic HTML too.
    I don't want to manually insert each pic into the page using Insert-Picture as there are too many pics and this will take too long.
    Is there a way I can copy all the pic filenames in Windows Explorer or My Computer and then paste or insert them all at once onto the Word web page (or another HTML program) so that all the images will be insert simultaneously?

    make a page on a HTML editor & upload it to a webpage.

    if you know HTML basics you can do it on a notepad

    But the easiest way i know is to use a website sucj as geocities or angelfire & let their pagebuilder set things for you.... its very simple but still takes a little time. But you don't need to know HTML to use it. you upload & drag it to where you want to place it.

    angelfire.com is a better choice as geocities will come back & try to get you to pay $8.95 a month..

    oh & you can set the names to match the pictures etc...the same way.
    You don't even have to use tables as it creates them automatically

    OK thanks - two questions...
    1. Whenever I select file names in Windows Explorer and then COPY, when I later PASTE it pastes the file contents rather than the file names. How can I cut and paste the file names only?
    2. If I manage to paste file names into Note Pad how can I avoid having to type <img src="...."> around each file name? Can I dump multiple file names between one set of quotation marks " " ??

    Have searched all the HTML books for a comment on this but nothing to be found.
    :cool: Thanks SavvyLady you have given me great tips a few times now.
