It's easy to get your photos Web readyeven older prints. Most film processing places will scan your pictures to a disk. For the Web, a resolution of 72 ppi (pixels, or picture elements, per inch) is plenty. The film processor will store your images in GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) or JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) photo format, ready for the Web.

If you want to get more technical, you can buy a Web-quality scanner. Another option is a digital camera, which will allow you to snap a picture and download it into your computer.

If you want cat cartoons and other free artwork to jazz up your pages, you can find some great stuff on the Beware of Cat page. This site offers free backgrounds, 3-D buttons and cat images.

3. Putting it together and putting it up on the Web: Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) probably offers free personal Web space. If so, it will provide you with information specific to your account, like the password you'll use to access your completed pages.

If you aren't deeply interested in the details of HTML programming, or if you don't have free Web space through your ISP, you can try templates, or pre-programmed pages, where you add the pictures and text. You don't even need Internet access at home to create these Web-based pages; you can do it from any computer connected to the Internet.

America Online offers a free "Hometown" service to its paid subscribers. Yahoo! offers free page templates and page hosting. So does Homestead.

If you don't want the constraints of a template and you don't want the expense of a Web authoring program, try your hand at HTML programming.

4. Upload your pages: This is the toughest task for most first-time Web authors and a big reason templates are so popular, because they often allow you to skip this step. You need to upload your completed pages to the Web via FTP (File Transfer Protocol).
