making cds
if you want to make a cd to distribute a set of pictures, here's a tip:
this will make windozes directly open the browser in index.html file avoiding phone calls from those relatives that doesn't know anything about computers and just want to see the pictures :)

if you have a sony cybershot camera you may want try to use cyber. as sony has two "marks" in camera that is totaly useless for me (locked that makes photo read-only and "printer mark" that probably makes windows software print photos automatically) i decided to make it useful in some way: you may have 3 different "collections" of pictures. example of use: you're taking pictures in your trip. some of those pictures you will make public but some you won't for any reason. so you mark the "private" pictures read-only or with printer mark and cyber will separate those pics in two different collections and later run thumbs for each one.
