Wow, from the 4th to the 19th July - that's some serious netlag!
I'm suspicious that my post took two weeks to make it over the pond.
Could it really have taken that long, or did you just decide to
respond to an old article?

Why wait for a webmaster to do it? Can't you just FTP them yourself?
After all, you don't really need to go to all the trouble of designing
a fancy web page, it's enough just to dump the JPEGs in a directory.

By "afford" do you men that you are limited by the cost of your
webmaster's time, or by the available storage space on the web server?
If it's your webmaster's time then, again, I would ask why not do it
yourself? All you need is some free web space and a correctly
configured FTP client. Cost shouldn't be an issue.
