Thanks for the feedback. I am still debating. I feel like Winnie the Pooh: "Think Think Think..." ;0) Love, Meg

Re: I have my own site!! Yay! :)

Hi there,

Nice site. I haven't been to many photo-sites and am only recently getting into the swing of the photo business, but I have had experience with other UI on the web and others.

Your website, although it has content, lacks navigational ability. What I mean by that is, think of your viewer as a granny. She wants to do the basic actions fast and they must be available. When visiting your site, you open new windows on each link. Likewise on those windows, there is no link back or indication of further navigation. Granny would have to know that she must close the browser down, which is not the most intuitive thing to do.

What would be easier to navigate the pages, would be either to create frames or CSS tables or a navigation bar/column/etc. This way any page can link to any other page, allowing granny to see the page fully without being limited that particular page.

Also, most people optimise there site to 800x600 resolution in our industry. The reason for this is that most people either run 800x600 or higher. If you make your page at too higher a resolution, it does not scale downwards very well. But lower resolutions scale up reasonably well (not perfectly sometimes).

Hope that helps.

cheers,
Rich
