I am rebuilding an old web site I have had up for years from FrontPage to .NET using Visual Web Express 2008.
I have got the Master Page bit and menuing but am having a great deal of difficulty finding a tool to re-create (or create) the Photo Album pages... (here is a link to my old FrontPage site and the look and feel it has...
I would like to keep the general look and feel of the old site bit I have so far not been able to locate a tool or example code to create pages which have
1. Thumbnail images of actual photos
2. Embeded links automatically created to the actual image file
3. Captions for each image or group of images
4. File based system
Anyone who has seen any sort of tool which has these criteria or code which generates them please let me know.
I looked at the example "Personal Web Site" and the photo album pages are great BUT if you try adding the pages to an existing site it crashes and I spent several hours trying to fix all the broken bits.. finally giving up as a bad job.
If anyone has sucessfully taken the pages & code from the "Personal Web Site" sample/example and added it to ther site sucessfully please let me know how you did it.

The best solution I found after many hours of searching and trying lots of complicated and time comsuming tools is "Visual LightBox".
It writes easy and clear code that is very easy to cut and paste into your own pages. And the slide show is very versatile. There is a very easy set up interface for creating thumbnails etc.
