    iWeb, hosting photos elsewhere
    I just recently redesigned my website using iWeb. No problems there.
    However, the ISP I have (roadrunner) only gives me 5mb of web space.
    Due to the amount of photos I will be posting I will be exceeding that.
    I would like to host my photos in Photobucket or someplace simlar rather
    than tying up my webspace with them, but I cannot figure out how to
    do this in iWeb. Can anyone offer any clues?

    You need a link from each pic leading back to your iWeb page. My isp gives users 20mb of webspace. 5mb is barely enough. When you upload your pics to wherever they end up, just copy the link and embed it into your website.

    It's a bit of a mess with iWeb, because iWeb turns special fonted text and lots of other things into images, too, so despite outserving your photos, you'll end up exceeding 5 MB eventually. And relinking in iWeb's generated HTML code is a pain.

    I suggest you get a cheap webspace arrangement, there aplenty out there for as low as 5 bucks a month and you'll have plenty of space.
    Best is .Mac of course, which is really getting better all the time.

    That looks like it might be my best course.... How much web space does .Mac provide for web hosting?

    I think the .mac idisc quota is 1gb, upgradeable to 4gb. Depending on your current quota, I'd imaging the web hosting would only be one way to utilize the 1gb.
