It may not be flashy, but it is idiot proof. Most users can then use their local software to see as thumbnails or as a slideshow or what ever.
I print a nice CD label, and run off a stack for the gallery and for press release stuff.

If I had a video camera, I might also add a movie to the root.
You continue to impress me, Robert. It's no surprise why you are so successful.
Do you need an apprentice? (Joking about that of course. It's kind of a long walk and swim.) But truthfully I could learn a lot by watching you in action.
