from memory I did 3 sizes - the thumbnail, an intermediate size suitable
for screen viewing after clicking on the thumbnail, and then a third
size which was the original image size. In some cases I left the
original size out to save space.

I gave these out to family as well - some as CD's and some as zip files.
In either case you just had to open index.htm and the rest was done (as
mentioned, so long as you have java in your browser).

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened
into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the
hope of greening the landscape of idea.
