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.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
