    Apple's iWeb is an excellent program to build something simple. That's what I used. http://www.walterpcalahan.com/Cheers/Home.html
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    I used iWeb (part of Apple's iLife group) to build mine. It's really very easy. Another easy (and still free) program is jalbum. http://jalbum.net/ - it's a basically volunteer made program that has a community of users. I've played with it and found it pretty easy to use - it was just easier for me to upload from iWeb than from jalbum.

    I'd like to add my opinion that iWeb is pretty good. I know some web gurus who bad-mouth the way it does the job, but I found it very easy to make my own templates based on the existing ones, and for me to say something like that, it *has* to be easy.

    If you go to my home page (http://www.patternsoflightndark.com/) I think it works, and I didn't use any of their templates straight out of the box.

    Alternatively, if you want to try your hand going a little further under the hood, you can build your site on Wordpress, but you do need to do some coding to get it to do what you want.

    Thanks, everybody. I guess I should have mentioned that I am on a PC/Windows platform.

    I have looked at Indexhibit, but I'm not sold. (2 of my former colleagues on the Texas Church Project have their websites in this stuff)

    Dreamweaver! Hmmm ... the wife is a graphic artist and we had considered that a while back. (Even bought a book). We do own the entire Adobe CS suite, so maybe we can use that. But, I'm convinced there is an idiot-proof template out there somewhere ...

    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.

    jalbum is PC and Mac. I don't know html or how to tweak stuff and I thought jalbum was easy to use.

    These days, I'd either use a wordpress back end and have someone build you a theme for it. Or, even more simply, some of the most usable and sexy stuff I've seen for photography have been Tumblr sites.

    Both are traditionally meant as blog back ends. But that doesn't mean you have to use them for blogging.

    I'd go tumblr. Unless you have some money to have someone build you a custom theme for wordpress, then that's a more customizable option.

    David,

    I know nothing about website building and don't have the time and inclination to get into it. From past experience, even if I managed to get to grips with html (whatever it is) and all that old stuff I'd have forgotten again by the next time I needed to make a change. After a lot of poking around on the web, I found Webeden at: http://www.webeden.co.uk/
    This has easy-to-use templates, has printable instructions that run to only 30 pages and has suited me very well for what I want to do with it (which is really mainly to have a few photos on the web that I can point people at to show them the sort of thing I do). My own website is at: http://walkhamphotography.webeden.co.uk if you want to have a look.

    Good luck with whatever course of action you follow!

    Steve

    Another vote for Jalbum. My site was built with it form a Windows maschine. Jalbum is built with photography in mind.

    Have you decided on a hosting site yet? Many times they have free software or templates for you to use. I used Yahoo!s Sitebuilder to make mine. It's free when you use Yahoo! to host your site. It does have a flaw though, it won't utilize much memory at all, so if your site gets bigger the program itself starts to really drag. To get around that I feed most of my images from Flickr. When I want to change a slide show I just rearrange, add, delete on the set on Flickr and since that's what feeds the site it's automatically changed.
    Yahoo also has Site Solution which is mostly templates, but I didn't care for them.

    But if you have the Adobe CS suite you may already have something sitting on your computer to do a better job of it.
