Step 1: Grab the Software

Your digital camera came with software that lets you get the pictures from your camera to your PC, but it probably didn't provide software that creates Web photo albums. For that, you'll need to create the thumbnail (miniature) images and HTML pages that make up a Web photo album and you'll need to transfer the resulting files to a Web server. We can suggest two free, downloadable programs that'll take care of both chores: MyAlbum and FTP Explorer.

Introducing MyAlbum

Several Windows apps can help you assemble Web photo albums, but MyAlbum, despite a few quirks, is a freeware standout. Once you learn your way around its somewhat confusing interface, you'll find that MyAlbum is pretty darned powerful, and it will save you hours by automatically creating thumbnails and Web pages for your images.

Also Starring FTP Explorer

FTP Explorer is a free program that takes files from your drive and copies them to a remote server on the Internet. As the name suggests, FTP Explorer works a lot like Windows Explorer -- you click and drag a file to move it from one place to another. Though it's no longer actively developed, FTP Explorer is easy-to-use, stable, and 100 per cent free.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
