How I Built This
All pictures were taken with with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel or one or the other of my Nikon digital cameras.
For sorting, cropping, resizing, and basic color adjustments, I use ACDSee. For "heavy duty" image editing, including critical exposure adjustment, editing things our or in, and constructing the panoramas, I use Adobe Photoshop Elements.
I wrote a couple of perl programs to resize images for the pictures albums and thumb nails, and to build the basic album pages. The remainder of the web construction was done using Microsoft Front Page.
