I really love Yahoo Site Builder. I'm a novice and was able to do a lot with their tutorials

They also have lots of templates and unlimited space for all of your photos.

Oh...and the design program FREE!

Very user friendly graphics programme- can create a very professional site in your style and also have an email account with your website name.

Very low monthly fee

Have fun building your site!

post #4 of 6 - plus they're incredibly reasonable all things considered. I use their Website Tonight program and even with dialup it still creates and updates pretty quickly. The important thing to remember though is to keep your picture size small (150 or less dpi)...

I tried and had the same problem: the photos had to be very small to upload and it was hard to make them look professional.

With Website tonight you can shrink the size of the photos once you've uploaded them (I just did this last night with the photo from a cake I did three weekends ago). The thing with the dpi is keeping your website easy for those of us with dialup able to navigate! If the file size is large people can't load your site quickly. If your customers are stuck loading your pictures forever even with highspeed, they're on to the next site without a second thought because "obviously" your webmaster didn't shrink the file size so people can browse your site and you just wanted people to be able to see the detailing on the photos better. The reality is only cakers are looking at the pictures that closely. They're looking for the little swirly pattern or the ribbon around the bottom of a tier like THEY want their cake to look like.

It's just something to consider regardless of which website builder you use. Even if it loads quick on your computer you have to consider the slower computer users because not everyone has a high speed connection.
