My wife wants to put a slide-show of some 400 photos (jpg's) on a web-site.

Thanks for your response.
I looked briefly at Impress, but wasn't quite clear how it works -
does it have to run on the machine,
or is it just used to create the slide-show mechanism?
I also looked at S5, which someone else suggested.
I was slightly doubtful about this,
as it seemed a little non-standard,
and also the s5 community appear to be split in two.
