Thanks for all the info people, this does sound like a good idea, one which
did occur to me in the bath (as most good ideas do) after I had posted my
question. I had invisaged having a page with background and nav bar and
working out the code so that just the picture changes without re-loading the
whole page.

The reason I was considering a database was because I could have fields for
the dimensions, alt tags, brief description etc. I know it does seem like a
long way round but I haven't done any database work for ages and so I
thought it would be good experience, but I also wanted to know if I was
making things unnecessarily hard for myself and, therefore, what
alternatives are available.

ASP and JavaScript.

Thanks again everyone.
