How can I set up a photo album where users have the ability to upload their own photos and the thumbnail of the newly uploaded file is automatically added to the album?

Not with FrontPage... it would require server side support to handle the upload, a database to store the file info, and asp pages to display the results. You'd also need a way to check file sizes and types, and create the thumbnails. That would require more server side support, and possibly more components.

Not an easy project for a beginner...not particularly hard if you know IIS/ASP/databases. But if you're posting this question in the FrontPage section, I'm assuming you're not an ASP programmer. ;-)

True. Should I explore the possiblity of just using a site like Ofoto or MSN Photos, and just linking it to my site?

That would be the easiest way.

It's a good project to learn ASP though. You'd need to have a server/provider that will allow uploads and serious server side scripting. Start with easy ASP stuff/includes, then move on to a simple database, then the upload components. By the time you got to allowing uploads, you'd be pretty comfortable with writing/adding to a database, dealing with permissions, etc.

And there are lots of places (including here) that can help you get started in ASP. ;-)
