    what program do you guys use to build and update your site.

    is there a program that simplifies making a flash based website? I don't really care for too much detailed configuration.

    I don't think that one would allow me to build a gallery?

    I doubt Lightroom will allow me to build a main page and then link galleries from it?

    essentially that is all i want to do.

    No offense, but if you don't know what software to use there's little chance you'll be able to actually edit flash

    You can use ps or dreamweaver to make a HTML splash page and use lr for the galleries

    none taken.

    i know about dreamweaver, but its a bit too complex for me or I haven't yet given it a full chance. I was simply asking for a simpler program that will have editable templates.

    thanks though, if i can't find anything, i might just end up doing what you suggested with an html splash page and then uploading galleries with LR.

    If lightroom can make full flash websites someone needs to do an EDU on that. All I know how to do is a 1 album gallery :dunno:

    in all reality, flash for anything but a gallery is unnecessary, unless you need some complex transitions between your pages (which you won't be making if you don't really know flash:o ). making basic html pages that link to the flash galleries output by lightroom would be the easiest route.

    there is plenty of software that make flash sites easier, but i have yet to find one that will work as well as a site actually built in flash by someone who knows what the hell they are doing.

    just buy a website template. For 50-100 you can get a more than adequate website, html or flash. You usually only need a text editor, some require PS, DW or FL.

    Lightroom will make the galleries, and theres even a plugin to make a galleries front page and links to sub galleries, but theres no way to make a decent splash page or any normal pages
