I think it is best to keep all image information in a database, then program
a relatively few pages that grab information out of the database.  For
instance, I have a field in my database that references paw images.  For
example, I have only 2 pages that display my PAW images.  The first one, , looks through the database and displays the
thumbnails which are referenced in a field in the database table.  Then if
you click on an image, any of the images, you are sent to , with a querrystring appended to the
address to show the appropriate image (like ).  Once I get the pages
programmed (Using Active Server Pages) I never have to program another web
page for my PAW.  Each time I have an update I do only 3 things:

1. I add the image information to my database
2. I upload the revised database
3. I upload the new images.

Later if I don't like the way my web pages look I only need to reprogram 2
pages for the entire PAW gallery.  I think this is the best way to do it -
programming on-the-fly according to what the user wants to see.  I love
dynamic html content.  I never even programmed a page called , I only programmed a page
called and told it what to do when it
encounters the querrystring (?i=100328 or whatever else it happens to be).
Cool, huh?

I like your images, especially the black and whites.  Nicely done.
