Updated my website!

I have finally updated my website! I am so pleased as I managed to do this without using software like jalbum and the script is great as it doesn't need a database, so I have managed to stay with awardspace.com! :happydance:

It is still a works-in-progress and I will be updating as I go along but I really wanted some feedback for now...

The layout seems very web 94'ish.

Re: Updated my website!

Seems to be fast loading which is always a plus (especially as I'm sure I suffer from ADD).

I don't know if it's just me but when I go into your gallery I have to click on a thumbnail on the right otherwise I get an empty square with one of those red x's. You may want to have it default to the first picture in your gallery so that someone strolling through won't think the page is broken.

Is the "Retouching" gallery empty? I didn't see any thumbnails. I seem to recall on your last page makeover you had quite a few examples to look at.

That's all I see right off the bat. I'm sure you've been told a million times already, but you certainly are VERY talented (I'm sooo jealous). I love looking at your work.

Since you are obviously comfortable working in photoshop have you considered designing your page in photoshop? I'm currently reading a great book on how to design your page in photoshop that you might like if interested (it has nice color pictures and isn't a total snooze to read): Photoshop & Dreamweaver Integration by Colin Smith (I know Amazon has it).

NIce layout! Im still working on mine (no time)......

The gallery pictures came up very slowly - if I was in a hurry, I would probably move on to another site.

I really liked your art work - a lot of talent there!

Re: Updated my website!

Thanx for the feedback! I have uploaded a couple of retouching samples now. That box is foxing me at the mo' but will sort it as soon as I can. Strange how it loads fast for some but is heavy for others...maybe I need to check some of the ppi as some of them were quite large works and I don't think I changed those.

Re: Updated my website!

I also saw the box with the red x in it, until I went to the thumb nail.
I really liked your jewelry retouching.
I'm not sure I would include your personal work, if you want it to look real professional or maybe rename it to "self promotional pieces" or something.
Good luck.

Good job tackling those inital pesky little red x's.

The only other thing you may want to tackle, is that for your images that don't have before's to view you might want to chuck the rollover state on them, otherwise when the mouse moves over it, the red x'd box shows up. (Boy that's a run-on sentence isn't it?)

Browsing more of your work, I love what you did in the Photo Art > Painting > Bride & Groom picture. It was an okay photo, but now is beautiful and detailed as a painting, love it!
