Deluxe Web Site

Hello all,
I am in the process of setting up my DeluxE web site and would like hints from people that already have one, as to the best way to scan my pics and put them into the site. I have had some trouble (I am sure it is the settings I am using on the scanner) having them appear as they do on the original print. Maybe it is the pixels I am using. Does anyone have some hints for me? I want the pics to look as clear and great on the site as they do for real.
Thanks everyone.

  Oops - forgot to say that obviously I am NOT shooting with a digital camera. I am a 'film' sort o' girl.

  Hi Pam, and welcome!
I, too shoot all film (slides), and suffered through the arduous task of trying to re-create the same image quality as my originals.
I upgraded my scanning equipment to a Nikon Coolscan 4000... a bit pricey, but well worth the money for the high quality scans it delivers. Are you scanning prints, or negatives? If you are not using a dedicated film scanner, that might be something to consider. There are many brands and levels of quality available to fit most budgets.
