WARNING: Google's Page Creator is a trial provided by Google Labs. It is in testing. (The trial may end, Google may decide to charge money for it, or Page Creator could be shut down.) The best case scenario of course is that it could become a finalized website under Google.

Go to http://www.pages.google.com and enter in your Gmail username and password. If you dont have a Gmail account follows the link to -sign up here-

The first time you enter a page will come up telling you a little about the features of Page Creator. To get inside you have to go to the bottom and agree to the terms and conditions.

Step 2: Adding and Editing Text

Picture of Adding and Editing Text
The default webpage has 4 editable fields, the title, the subtitle, the body and the footer. You can enter text into any of these by just clicking inside the red dashed box of the field where you want the text and typing.

On the left are your controls for editing the text inside of each field. You can make the text bold, italic, give it bullets, change the color, change the font, and change the size form here. NOTE: You have to have the text selected in order to edit it, and also once you have pushed one of these buttons its setting will continue on throughout the rest of the field. For example if you set the first word you type to be italic and then continue typing the rest of the text you enter after this world will be italic unless you deselect italic by pushing the button again.

Step 3: Changing the Look of the Page

Great tutorial. Microsoft Word also has a simple web page creator built in it.
I know
but you would have to pay for hosting

One tip to make your googlepage look really good is use lots of different text types (Heading, subheading, normal, etc.) to emphasize different sections of a page. I think that's one thing google did really well.

It probably won't show up for awhile, or it may appear a ton of pages in. The way google picks up sites is by randomly searching the internet for websites with "meta" tages in their code. These tags give google the title, a description, etc. of your site. I'm not sure if Google Pages even creates the tags for you, though.
nevermind. To delete pictures: go to the edit screen, click on the step you want to delete pictures from, and scroll down to where you have your picture. Below that there should be a smaller version of the picture above your picture library. Lokk to yor right. See the (x) ? Click that, then click "unlink file".
also, the site shows you a scaled-down version of the image by default, to get to the original uploaded image click on the (i) in the upper left corner of any image, then in the left column click on 'original' and then under the image click the link for 'download original size'
I'll report the problem in "bugs"
