Taking pics for a website using a digital cam Bubzeebub msg:851726 7:49 pm on Mar 9, 2005 (gmt 0) What's the best way to take pics for images for a website? What lighting/background is best? Any other suggestions?

I use a light tan background material and wait for a nice sunny day. Pictures are taken indoors, but the natural light produces better effects that artificial light, for me. Abdelrhman Fahmy msg:851728 8:22 pm on Mar 9, 2005 (gmt 0)
As Pc monitors sync at high refresh rates. You should Use a shutter speed slower than 1/30 to extend over a few frames. Also use a macro lens or the Macro mode if you're using a compact digital camera.
You’ll find some nice tutorial if you searched for (photographing pc monitor)

I don't think bubzeebub is trying to take pics OF a website, but those are some pretty good tips for future reference. ;o)
I think the natural lighting is a good suggestion. You should also take the photos into Photoshop and bump up your color saturation about 5% it makes the image more eye-catching.
You can also use Photoshop to gausian blur around your item so that the focus is sharp on the object and less sharp everywhere else, it's a pretty good effect.
I usually use white for a background, or some sort of outdoors scene that I can blur.
