My wife uses pages.google.com to make an online newsletter for her classroom. I don't know how capable it is, but it is a WYSIWYG interface.

Check this out, it'* from another forum I visit.


Website and Sending pictures over the Internet.

Website and Sending pictures over the Internet If a tree falls in the forest and no-one hears it, does it make a noise? This applies to those wonderful, pictures you have on your computer. Sharing them with others is fun and they may even like to view them. I have tried all methods and this procedure I present here is by far the best. It is relatively cheap and non-intrusive for the recipient. I have about 20 thousand photos on my site over a time period of about 8 years. They are always available by sending the URL via E mail.

Method for Handling Photographs for distribution.

Get a web site. Probably less than $7.00 per month. There are many but here is one: http://www.bluehost.org/en/home.php

Get Breezebrowser to make HTML of your photos, to file, plus annotation if necessary. It only requires a few minutes to process pictures at any size ready for uploading to the website. http://www.breezesys.com/BreezeBrowser/

Get WS FTP or any other FTP program to upload your photos to your web site. http://www.download.com/3000-2160-10018456.html

Here is a a sample of the web site. This is a short URL using notlong.com but there are others. The pictures were taken by a couple on a three week cruise in Europe. I posted them on my website as a favour.The site is Pompey. http://disgreer.notlong.com

Short URL provided free. This is a convenience since some URL'* are very long. http://notlong.com/

Using the method described above you are free of the shrills and their constant advertising on the various "Free" photo websites. Your site will be clean and fast. The uploaded photos will be excellent for viewing but not for printing.

If the users want prints you can send the originals at a size that they can print using this free software via E mail. http://s6.yousendit.com/ I upload photos within literally minutes of getting home from a shoot, and notify all the recipients via E mail as to the URL of the site.
