Q&A

Q1:I uploaded a bunch of pictures to my Web page, but they aren’t showing up, not even as broken icons. They’re all in a folder, and I added the name of the folder to the index page, but nothing happens. Why?
A1: Do you have placeholders for the images, and links to each picture by name? Probably not. Use the Web Photo Gallery to make up your page. Then use your Web page editor to add it to the site.
Q2:If I want to put my pictures on the Web, but only for my friends to see, can I protect them?
A2: There are lots of ways to do this. The easiest is to put them on a hidden page. This is a secondary page on your site, not linked to the first. Instead it has a separate address, such as http://home.myservice.net/mypage/hidden.htm. Give your friends the direct URL to this page. No one who doesn’t know it’s there will be able to reach it. However, “security through obscurity” is never a recommended policy for truly sensitive information or images. If you want to be more secure, you can learn enough JavaScript to password-protect the site. Look for Sams Teach Yourself JavaScript in 24 Hours from Sams Publishing. It provides a good introduction to JavaScript.
Q3:If I’m emailing a file to a friend who has Photoshop, do I have to send it as a JPEG? I want her to be able to look at different layers.
A3: If you know she can read a native Photoshop file, go ahead and send one.
