This web site is for my art. The home page has links to different galleries, such as Seascapes. Once you go to that page there are thumbnail images of each oil painting in that category. You can then double-click on each thumbnail to open up another page that has a larger image of the oil painting, plus information about size and pricing. However, I have approximately 100 paintings total, so if I set each one up this way there will be a whole lot of pages and links in the web site. Does it make sense to do it that way, or is there a better way? I didn't want to create the whole thing and then find out later I should have done it differently.

You can do it both ways:

  1. You either keep and create files for all the images you have. This is time consuming and many files will have to be updated on the website.

  2. Secondly, choose an application and automatically create gallery with thumbnails and large files. There are plenty applications to choose from. Browse the database of Software Informer to pick some.

Once you selected the application, install it, add images, create thumbnails and add other information and generate the file. In the end you still have to upload the files and thumbnails, but you'll only have one HTML file or SWF and HTML, depending on the app you choose.
