I have had the photo album for about a year now. I was unable to place any of them on the web, and tried to have a programmer install them to the site. To date I have tried three different programmers, and not one has been able to get the program to work on the web. I do like the program, but would like it much better if the program could be used on the web. I have not heard of the new versions if they are easy to load to the web, or not. I would also like to say that since most of us that purchased this program planned on using it for the internet, and it would be helpfull if a easy install internet version was made that anyone could install even a programmer.

David, you sound very discouraged -- it IS possible to do this, several of us have. I copied/pasted this from a previous message I posted -- see if it helps:

I Built my small test presentation as an html start page in Application Folder c:/mywebpage/Flip -- the last "piece" of this file name is used to name the html page, i.e., in this case Flip.html (several other files and folders are also created in c:/mywebpage/Flip). I then used ftp to upload:

- ALL the "pieces" (files and folders) created and stored in c:/mywebpage/Flip (including the html page, Flip.html)

- to my web site (phs67.net)

- in it's own folder (Flip) (this is optional -- I keep things organized this way)

so I can now type http://www.phs67.net/Flip/Flip.html into my browser's Address box and see the presentation online (eventually -- it's slow because it's so big. i.e., be patient, could take several mintues).

If I did not store it in it's own folder as in bullet 3 above, I would type http://www.phs67.net/Flip.html into the browser Address box.

In either case, you have to type the entire name (URL, address) of the html page into the browser Address box -- or as the link to it on another page. But remember, these things are HUGE and can take a long time to download especially with a modem.

Good directions oldsoul!

Yes, html creation and uploading can easily be done. However, just to confirm what oldsoul has said, 3D albums are much larger than your typical html file. An animated video file can easily become 50MB quickly. Download time for a file this size, especially with a 56KB modem, can take several hours. So be careful and check your file size prior to uploading to your website.

You can reduce the file size by rendering your video as a .wmv or MPeg1 file. After doing so, upload the file to your website in this format. It will play in Windows Media Player. The playback window will be small, and the quality limited, but for internet video streaming it will look OK.

If you would like to see an example, visit my website. When there, click on the "Our Movies" tab. Then click on either "Nite Cafe," or, "Amphibian Blues."

These two animations were not created in 3D Album, but they were rendered and uploaded as WMV files. As you will see, while the quality isn't great, the download time is reasonable and the video quality is acceptable for demonstration/entertainment purposes.

Hope this gives you a better idea of your options.

David,

If you would like to see a 3D-Album displayed on my website, here it is: www.frogprintz.com

Click on the "Our Movies" tab, and then click on "OH Teddy."

Since you have expressed frustration with your apparent inability to make HTML start pages, with video embedded, and then uploaded to your websites. This shows it can be done.

These are the settings I used.

1. My images are 72 DPI
2. My folder size is 1.06 MB
3. My style is Fading # 6
4. My music is a .midi file

Downloading with a 56KB modem still takes some time, and the pictures are a bit jerky. DSL however, works very good.
