>               I have recently returned from my honeymoon and have bought a
> domain name to host a vanity site with all our photos and holiday journal

> full size etc., but I would also like to be able to have "next" and
> "previous" arrows on the page so people can just flick through all the
> size pictures if they wish. How is the best way to achieve this? I can

> 1. Upload all the images into a directory and then create a JavaScript

> possible, my JavaScript is a little rusty).
> 2. Put the image filepaths into a database and then call them from there,
> using the primary key to keep them in order.
> So, which way is preferable, or is there another way that is so blindingly
> obvious I have missed it?
