Unless there is an index.html (or other html file) pointing to the pictures etc it will give an error 404. I presume it's a security feature. I find it annoying because if I have any pictures I want to share with my brother in London I haev to upload them *and* create an html file pointign to them, then send him a link to the HTML file. Don't worry, it's not you having a senior moment. Kind regards, JulianThanks, I feel a lot better. I will have a go at my web host first. But, meanwhile, what sort of HTML file do I need to create? Perhaps there is a simple layout which I could use for every situation like this. Thanks Neil
Depending on your web host, you may be able to configure file listing on individual folders. On the other hand, usually in photo editing packages such as F-Spot and Digikam. There is an option on F-Spot to export to web gallery, I've not tested it myself but I'd guess it would create thumbnails of the images and a HTML file with thumbnails pointing to the full image.
Other than that there is a package called album in the Ubuntu (10.04) repositories which is a 'HTML photo album generator with theme support'. Could also be worth a look.
