We know how much you value your privacy and with our new Doteasy's Hosted Gallery privacy control features, you can rest assure that your private life will stay private. With our new enhancements, the control is in your hands. You can decide whether you want to display your pictures to the public or keep it private for only your friends and family. Albums categorized as Public are open to everyone and do not require a login ID and password to access. In contrast, Private Albums are only visible to visitors you have assigned these certain albums to. Visitors will need to login to your gallery with the assigned ID and password, which is sent to them along with your private album invitation and the album sign-in link.

In addition to the above options, you can also choose to have your albums published or unpublished. Users are able to view published photos according to their level of access. On the other hand, unpublished albums cannot be seen by anyone, including those who have private access to the album. This way, no one can peek at your unfinished product until everything looks just the way you want it to be.

Keeping track of your visitors is simple and easy. The address book allows you to add, delete, or edit information about your friends and groups. You can assign the entire list of friends from a certain group into an album using the “Select All” button. This eliminates the need to add each individual separately. You can also insert 25 email addresses at a time to send out individual invitations.

There's no reason for you to wait any longer! Head on over to the Member Zone, activate your Doteasy Hosted Gallery and start sharing your photos today!

There are many options available when it comes to sharing your photos online. There are flash photo galleries (ie. SimpleViewer), open-source gallery scripts (ie. Coppermine and Plogger) and third-party hosted galleries (ie. Flickr and Smugmug).

Each of these has their own pros and cons and most often your choice is based on the following considerations:

1. Do you have the time and knowledge to install and configure the script and edit any HTML/CSS/PHP codes so that the gallery behaves the way you want it to?

2. Does it matter if your photo gallery is on a third-party website that has links and ads plastered all over it?

3. Are you familiar with Flash or XML-editing?

But did you know that there is a simple photo gallery solution that can give you the pros of the above options but doesn’t require Flash, scripting or database skills and most importantly, it is on your own Doteasy no-ad website?

The Doteasy Hosted Gallery is the newest member of the Doteasy Hosted Applications family. It is similar to the Doteasy Hosted Forum and Blog whom many of you have tried and fell in love with. The Hosted Gallery is a simple, one-click installation, no scripting or database, easy-to-use photo gallery solution from Doteasy.

Go ahead and activate your free Doteasy Hosted Gallery through Member Zone today. The gallery tutorial will be available very shortly.

The holidays are over and everyone is back to school or work. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. One of the best things about the holidays is the time we get to spend with our families, sharing memories and taking photos.

Have you thought about showcasing your holiday photos on your website? You could start a family website and setup an online family photo album. Think of a family-yearbook project.

There are many photo album scripts and photo-sharing websites on the Internet. Majority of the scripts require your hosting plan to have PHP/MySQL capabilities. Photo-sharing websites are easy-to-use, but most of the time, your online album will be clustered with ads and you only get a sub-domain URL tagged with your Membership ID and/or other variables that can get quite tricky to remember.

Did you know that it is easy to setup an impressive photo album on your own Doteasy-hosted website without needing to purchase scripting or database support?

Check out these two different photo albums you can setup on your $0 Hosting account:



Once you have installed the SimpleViewer or the PostcardViewer on your account, your next step will be to populate it with your own photos. This can be done automatically using a program such as Photoshop, Picasa, and iPhoto, or manually using a text editor and imaging editing software of your choice.

For more instructions:

If you want to create multiple albums on your account, here is one way you can try:

  1. Login to your FTP account and create a photos directory.
  2. Within the photos directory, create a folder for each album you wish to setup.

    Photos FTP
  3. Upload the SimpleViewer or PostcardViewer files into each of the folders.
  4. Continue populating the albums with your own photos.

And there you go, your own photo albums on your own domain, no scripting or database required.
