New Galleries on my Website

I've given up struggling to use the web publishing software that came on my iMac because it was stopping me getting the enthusiasm add any new galleries. The problem was that it seemed to insist on publishing the whole site every time I added anything. I stopped using it for my blog a while back for the same reason. Don't get me wrong, the website it created was very good and slick to use for visitors but when it was taking me nearly to hours to upload it I got pretty fed up. You couldn't even leave it because the ftp connection would time out.

Anyhow my daughters partner suggested using a system called Coppermine and I found that my hosting company supports it so I thought I'd give it a try. I've started with some photo galleries of reservoirs and I am working my way backwards through my photos and will add more shortly. So far it seems quite good and I'm looking forward to putting lots more of my photos out for veiwing. Here's a link to my new gallery and my old gallery is still around for the moment bu I will eventually transfer the church photos to the new gallery. Hope you like the new gallery and please post some comments, I'd like to know what you think.
