    Could someone pleeeeeeeeeeease help me?

    Is it even possible to have a photoblog PAGE on a regular blog? Or would I have to change my whole site to be just a photo blog?

    My site is http://www.maviefolle.com

    My mission is to be able to add a daily photo. When clicking on the daily dog in the navigation, I need to get to the page with the photo and have PREVIOUS or NEXT at the bottom to get to the previous/next photos. I swear I've been looking for an answer for 2 days.

    Please help me. Thanks. Sheila

    You mean ala Matt Mullenweg's gallery here?
    Have you check the built-in Gallery of WordPress, see Codex
    Good luck.

    WOW, that's a beautiful site (Matts gallery), but no...what I'm trying to do is to keep my regular old blog but make only one of my navigation buttons able to link to one photo daily. And then the next day when I add a new photo...the first photo will go somewhere in an archives (?) and the new photo will appear.
    BUT, I'd also like to have a link to the previous photo on the current photos page.

    Create new Category like GalleryX. Each time you post a photo, make sure you check the GalleryX category. Add GalleryX link and this will open up to all posts checked in GalleryX. And depending on the theme, the GalleryX category pages will have the previous and next post links.

    So does this mean that I have to post the photo in a 'write - post' page? How do I add the previous and next buttons into the code if my theme doesn't have this already? Thx

    1. Yes, post photo in Write-Post and check GalleryX category.
    2. You can find this in default theme

    <div class="navigation">
         <div class="alignleft"><?php next_posts_link('&laquo; Older Entries') ?></div>
         <div class="alignright"><?php previous_posts_link('Newer Entries &raquo;') ?></div>
