1Save your photos in a Web-safe format.

JPEG is best for photos because it supports the multitude of colors and shading within the images. This figure shows the Save for Web dialog box in Photoshop Elements.

2Set up the Web page where you want to display the images.

You can use a variety of graphical tools to design the page (Microsoft FrontPage, Macromedia Dreamweaver, Adobe GoLive), or you can create a page by writing HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) code.

You can typically upload your files by using FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software.

4Visit the page online to see how it looks.

Check your page to make sure it’s okay before you send people there to see your images.

If you want to make changes to your Web page, open the Web page file on your own computer, make the changes, and upload it again.
