A friend of mine recently said she has a folder where she keeps photos that she receives in emails. This is kinda bewildering me, lol. I know how to create a new folder and I know how to put things into it. But how do you take photos received in an email and put them in their own folder? I'm betting this is fairly easy but I'm asking anyway, lol. I just want to do it so I won't have to delete pics that people send me just because a particular inbox or two can't hold them all. Also, do you know of any other free website builders besides geocities? I've been trying to create this webpage for like 4 years. I always save my progress as I go along but it's not 'saved' somehow. I can view it but nobody else can. The addy says it's not up and running yet or something like that. I did try another one but it was so lame that all you can really do is paste and post what you already have. It doesn't come with skins, music, backgrounds, etc...

Thanks!

You might , depending on the number and different subjects of the pictures, want to have some kind of photo folder application that will help you manage. and do some basic editing of, your photo collection. Google has a free application (Picasa):

http://www.picasa.com/content/download.php...=pic&subid=more

You can store all the photos in My Pictures, but use this program to make different folders, comments, etc.

Regards,
John

I just want to do it so I won't have to delete pics that people send me just because a particular inbox or two can't hold them all.



I can't help but think Google G-mail. I too have been in the "better clean it out 'cause it's gettin' full" habit. Now I have 1,000 GB of storage free. PM me, ~67, if you want the invite to get it. :flowers:

BTW, photos, and e-mailin' them, and havin' them hosted online and such is as quiet passion for me...and I like the less than quiet passion you shared in another thread. :thumbsup: ya' gotta right, girl, to tell it like ya see it. :trumpet:

~67~ You might try Lycos click here for Tripod or click here for Angelfire for creating a free website. Angelfire is nice. Tripod is a little more professional. They have some plug and play templates as well as the option to do it yourself for free. And of course a pay to upgrade.

None of these have been personally investigated but
click here for some other free alternatives

Phawgg,
Hey there! I suppose we are equally passionate people :flowers: . Not sure which other thread you are referring to but I don't hide my passion about certain things. My yahoo email ID bears tribute to that :thumbsup: . Oh, and I've got the gmail thingy, thanks to Scarlett - she's a doll, isn't she?
As far as the free website goes, I went back to Geocities. I'm still having the same problem getting it to save so it can be viewed by others. It only seems to save my progress. I should've remembered Angelfire but didn't. Thanks for the reminder Bluie. Geocities hasn't changed their backgrounds in years. And I'll check out both Angelfire and Tripod too. Thank you again Bluie.
One of these days, I'll have a free webpage y'all can actually see. I hope! :trumpet:

Thanks u2!

Just out of curiosity, are you saving the web page as index.htm or index.html?
If not then you will need to give the full url including the name of the page to others to see it (ie: www geocities com/ mypage.htm) (spaces used instead of dots to avoid auto clicking it)

If you need help just holler, have several pages on geocities and others as well.
