How, how do i go about making a professional looking website?

I need all the help i can get... Thanks

I use Foliopic and it's really easy to use and I have no knowledge of website building at all.

A free one I've sen a few people use is Wix. They have lots of free templates on there.

If you want to make your own I would recommend "Serif WebPlus X5". Its very easy to use, great support and the picture galleries (inc Pro Flash and Light box) are brilliant. No coding is needed and its a reasonable price. It also includes 6 months hosting. Youtube it to see how easy things are.

I tried Webs and they froze my account after a few weeks, because of 'inappropriate material' (Landscapes and travel??!!!) and when I asked why, my request was originally dealt with by saying all fixed. It wasn't. I asked again and all contact was ignored, for several weeks. I abandoned them and later tried Photium. Easy to use. Will is great, reponses really are in minutes, if you need help at all.

Clikpic - easy to use, plenty of styles/templates to choose from. 35 per year for 100 photos, excellent back up team if you get stuck !
