12. Creating a Photo Album/Gallery.

Photo albums or galleries are a great way of adding interactivity to web pages: they provide users with extra choice of how to access information and what they want to see.

As well as showing off your favourite pictures, galleries are used a lot by businesses to display pictures of their products or items they wish to sell.

Rather than create a photo album by hand which can be complicated and time consuming a new program - Visual Lightbox - to do the heavy lifting for us. This program is free and can be downloaded at http://visuallightbox.com/. At school, this program has already been installed for us.
