Building a 1963 Lake Placid Telecaster - Home

This webpage provides an overview of how I built this website. Below I list the tools/cameras/software I used and some brief notes about the process.
Camera Model Info:
Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital Camera -- Only a 2 megapixel camera but it has a great macro function. I used this camera primarily for the close-up shots. You can get these FinePix cameras fairly cheap - a great tool to have if you need to take a lot of close-up photos.
Pentax *ist DL - Digital SLR -- A 6.1 megapixel digital SLR.
Software/Tools Used For:
Adobe Photoshop
Adobe Photoshop Elements
-- Image editing.
GIMP Photo Editor -- GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. A freeware image editing application (a Linux program converted for Windows).
Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel -- Database development.
Coffee Cup HTML Editor -- Main software used for HTML/ASP coding.
Pranas.NET Thumbnail Web Gallery Creator -- A freeware program that I used to generate the thumbnails and general layout for the section pages.
Top Style Lite - CSS Tool -- CSS - Cascading Style Sheet editing.
Bulk Rename Utility -- A freeware program used for mass renaming of files - mostly all the images.
Coffee Cup FTP -- Moving files to my webserver.
