This is a family website and also contains my wife and I's professional portfolios.
Our current site (built by me with MS Frontpage) is here...[[url removed, login to view]] ...From there you can get an idea as to what media and documents the site contains.
There are 1000's of photos, 10's of videos and some various downloadables.
PHOTOS - The photo are of various sizes (as through the years our family camera has been upgraded.) Some of the older photos are 640x480 but the newer ones are 1200x900. I would like to keep photo size to a minimum of 1200x900 (except where older photos were never that size) The size they are display on the website isnt so important as long as they can be viewed without having to squint to see them. BUT I would like there to be an option to download the photo at the original size (i.e. 1200x900) if the end users wishes too.
VIDEOS - The videos (most of them) are currently quite large in size. This is because I want these to be an archival record of my families holidays and our daughter "growing up" Currently the videos are in .wmv format. The playback size on the website is optional but the importance here is retaining the quality of the video so that 20 years from now we arent kicking ourselves for shrinking them down to fit the current limits of the web and thus having poor video quality.
There is not a lot of writing that needs to be done.
After it is finished I would like to be able to maintain and easily add to it as we are always adding photos and videos to the site.
I already have a domain name and a server in the US.
Id like to be able to maintain and upload changes and new media via FTP from my home into the continuing future.
