    Graphics person here; with knowledge of sending files to newspapers, printers via disk, emailed Pdf etc. I simply do not understand the language used to set up a webpage. I would like a simple webpage that only requires some text, artwork & photos saved as Gif or Jpgs. I know just enough html to be dangerous.
    From what I gather I need Fetch FTP. While reading through the website there is a link to Graphicconverter, now in my field I understand what I need to do to convert graphics say to a eps. for postcript files. I'm equipted with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Pagemaker, Acrobat and about every other program needed in the print media. Would I need some other type of Graphic converter for posting on a website?

    You don't need GraphicConverter. You can prepare your graphics in Photoshop and save them in .jpg, .gif or .png format for uploading to your web server.

    The one feature that GraphicConverter has that others programs do not is the ability to act as an external editor for Fetch. So you can select a file on the server in Fetch and choose the "Edit with GraphicConverter" command to have the file downloaded and opened in GraphicConverter. Then, when you save changes in GraphicConverter they are automatically uploaded to the server. This feature is convenient, but it is not necessary.
