    I'm trying to find some code in the help section - to make a photograph album - that is easy to do. I saw that there is something in the top right corner to do with images - but can't work out what I'm supposed to do - or if it's the right thing to use anyway.

    I made our community website using some awful software. A very busy friend - horrified by the (apparently!) very messy code - cleaned it up for me and made me swear I would never use this software again!
    The website now uses html and css pages - but I don't really understand how they work together.

    I'm using the paid version of HTML-kit.

      Hi,

      You can use the Image Picker to insert <img ...> tags:

      http://www.htmlkit.com/blog/image-picker-2011-10/

      That page has some more information but you'd just open the drop-down
      and navigate to your image folder by clicking "Look In..." button. It'll
      remember that folder so you can go back to it to insert more images.

      Depending on the number of images, type of presentation, etc., you might
      also want to add a slideshow or light box. HTML-Kit doesn't provide code
      for that but it's easy to find free libraries for customizing photo
      galleries:

      Hope this helps.
