Default Simple photo display web pages

It used to be so simple. Just throw a table onto your website, hide the dividers, and arrange your page that way. Then CSS came along and its boosters said that tables are not "the correct way." And then people who used tables were subjected to table-shaming and their user names had to be followed with a scarlet-red "T" in parentheses.

So now I've forgotten almost everything I knew about HTML (which was not much) and I want to make a page where beauty matters not. I just want a page were I can put a few photos that are the size of thumbnails until the visitor clicks. Meaning, no separate thumbnail images need to be made. And a download link for a zip file that contains all of them.

I think I have an old DOS program somewhere called Visual Studios that can that, but I'll have to check. That is unless someone here knows of a template out there that does not put style ahead of utility.

Anyway, I apologize for conveying this in a needlessly lengthy way. I tried to make it brief after seeing how long it is but gave up.
