    Q:27-Apr-05 - Why can't I just use a normal photo album site?
    A: Click HERE to read an article by David F. Gallagher for a good introduction to photo logging. Here is an excerpt:
    How is a photolog different from a plain old Web page? Many people who have digital cameras find themselves churning out a constant stream of images because it is fun, easy, and cheap to do. Photologs are built to handle that stream, with the newest photos right up front and older ones receding into the background. Traditional online photo galleries lack this chronological structure and can be harder to update. And like Weblogs, many photologs are updated every day, making individual photos less important than the regular flow of images.

    Q:18-Oct-03 - What are photologs?
    A: Photologs are similar to web logs, or blogs, except that images are the primary form of communication. According to Webopedia.com, a blog is a web page that serves as a publicly-accessible personal journal for an individual. Typically updated daily, blogs often reflect the personality of the author.

    Photologs can be personal, they can be about your family, about your trips, your artwork, or your job. In fact they can be about anything that you want to take photos of.
    Q:27-Apr-05 - What is FotopagesTM
    A: Fotopages is a site that allows you to create, manage, and host photologs. Fotopages automates the entire process, meaning that you don't have to program any HTML or learn how to operate a web site.
