    Default Cross linking sites to save space

    I have recently constructed a site for my wife who is an artist to disply
    her work.
    Problem is that I only have 10 megs of space for the site.
    I have an idea to allow for many more photos on her site by storing the
    photos on another website and having the gallery load images from site # 2.
    Can this be done? and can anyone explain how?
    Also will that slow the gallery down greatly having to download pictures
    from a differnt sight on the same server?

    Hi Tony,

    Depends on server speed, but it shouldn't slow down too much. Compress
    images down to med. quality jpgs.

    Inside a text box or table cell, hit Ctrl+T and paste this code.

    <img src=http://other_site.com/folder_on_server/image_name.jpg alt="picture"
    title="description of wife's picture goes here" width="500" height="500"
    border="0">

    Where the width & height = actual image size in pixels.

    You could also use a 3rd party gallery.

    Wow, looks like this is something requires to be done with every one of the
    photos. that could take a long time sense she has about 75 different works.
    Is there an easier way?

    What do you think of this idea?
    Publish the gallery to the second site and have the first page on the second
    site named Oils. add a button to the nav. bar on site 1 that says oils and
    do an external link to the site 2 page. I would also have to add a button to
    the Nav. bar on site 1 named home and external link it back to site 1.
    Problems I can see so far is I don't know how to change the order of the
    buttons in the nav. bars. anyone know how to do that, or think of any issues
    this method my cause.

    Why dont you use an I frame and a photo gallery, version 10 has an Iframe
    function or use one of chucks I frame generators (BeyondFusion.com), which I
    think you can insert the address of the gallery site its a great code
    generator you just cntrl T it into your page.

    To do that, click on the nav bar, then either click custom, where you will
    be able to move buttons around etc, or click the "Add Link", which will
    allow you to add a external link.

    Tony:

    I have a different approach... why not consider hosting where you have
    adequate space! Hosting is so cheap now. You can get huge amounts of storage
    and bandwidth for $5-10/month and keep all your images and site in one
    place. Just a thought.

    I totally agree with Sheila. Affordable hosting is easy. Working around an
    inadequate server is hard. When you have a bigger server space to work
    with, look at www.JAlbum.net It's hard to beat the price (free) and it
    does just about everything for you - including thumbnails, watermarks and
    html pages.
