In another post (“The best sharing site? How about a combination”) I presented my views on building a gallery site just the way I like by using a blog as the basis. Also mentioned was the idea of using blog posts to announce the latest additions. Here is an illustration of that idea as seen in the new Internet Explorer 9:
This is a really neat way to present the newest photos and other “gallery news”. My “news” page is prepared using Windows Live Writer, as are the other pages of the “gallery”. That is an easy and flexible way to prepare the material. The few glitches, like varying ways that browsers interpret the photo locations, are easily taken care of. I am quite happy with the technique.
