PhotoOnWeb is a simple, free program for creating photo albums and publishing them online. It creates your album, builds the Web site, and publishes it all for you, either via the built-in FTP Client using your own online space or via a subscription to sites such as the one the developer makes available. It creates easy-to-use albums with a full-screen Flash slideshow feature.
PhotoOnWeb's user interface opens with a Start tab displayed in the main view. The right-hand panel's three headings describe the program's basic operations, too: Project, Parameters, and Publish. We started by creating and naming a new project and adding images. PhotoOnWeb let us add images by browsing or dragging and dropping them one by one, in batches, or by entire folders. The default frame template is plain, but a drop-down list had a large selection of alternatives to choose from, many with names like Halloween and Tahiti. We could also browse to the program's Web site to get templates. Tabs labeled General, Frame, Navigation, and Security let us configure our album's online behavior, such as background colors and how programs open. The Security option let us specify log-on IDs and passwords to access our albums. We recommend using this option for your personal images, unless you want to share them freely, because that's what will happen if you don't protect them with passwords. A slider makes sizing images easy, though the tool resizes all the images at the same time. But we could rotate images individually and make other changes. We saved our project in the software's proprietary .pow format for editing, but the easiest thing to do is to simply press Publish to automatically connect with an FTP server, provided you've already specified one. PhotoOnWeb's Parameters offered a variety of preconfigured servers, and we could add more in the Options.
Our online album was basic but worked fine, though PhotoOnWeb's templates (and video tutorial) showed us that much more was possible, and with little effort. Most ISPs offer free Web space to their subscribers, and many other free online storage options are available for publishing your albums.
PhotoOnWeb is software to create your online photo albums. It shares your pictures on internet with your friends and familly. Sort your photos in multiple albums pick a template and click on the Publish button. PhotoOnWeb will resize the photos, build the web site and publish a photo web album. You can host the pictures yourself with your own ISP web space by FTP or create an account on VSO's server. No computer programming knowledge is required, HTML editing can be used for custom albums. The navigation in the online gallery is so easy you can browse through the pictures with the keyboard or mouse using your current Web browser. Using Flash technology, you can use the full screen of your display to enjoy the details of the pictures: elegant and professional look and feel.

Version: PhotoOnWeb 0.9.6.4
Free, easy to use
Doesn't show one single picture on the final project. Only a dark gray screen with the heading and your text. But no pictures shown. Yes, I have loaded 50+ images into the project in case you're asking.
Would be nice and cheap software.......IF IT WORKED.

I've tried to use other then the default template, now it works fine. But still, leaving the template untouched (Default) still doesn't render any pics.
With the other templates it seems to be a very nice program with good looking lay-outs.
