Stephen's Website

This is a new home on the web for me.

In addition to this site, I also maintain the Falconers Country Dance Club website.

At the moment I’m experimenting with different ways of presenting web photo galleries. I really like the galleries in MobileMe but want something for galleries not hosted on MobileMe.

There are RapidWeaver themes and photo gallery pages on this website and I really like the Collage 2 plug-in.

Using iWeb produces very nice galleries with integrated slideshows, but my efforts to incorporate mapping were not very successful.

I’ve tried Gallery 2, but found it a little clunky. However, I’ve now tried Gallery 3 and that seems pretty good.

JAlbum was my preferred photoalbum. The theme that I’m using very nicely integrates geographical data including track data. The only thing missing is integrated slide shows. At the moment my Jalbum pages are password protected. However, actually using Jalbum seems to result with me keeping a lot of different versions of photographs which is somewhat irritating.

Overall, given that Gallery 3 has export capabilities from iPhoto (and presumably many other photo organising packages), this seems now to be my preferred choice for hosting a photo gallery. The only challenge is that while I have geotagged many of my photographs, the geotag information doesn’t always export from iPhoto. This particularly affects raw images from my older Canon DSLR, probably because the information isn’t directly included in the CRW format.
