    The new website is a lot more user-friendly, that's for sure. I didn't like how your old site was a page and a half wide(or whatever the dimensions were). All the pics that I looked at worked for me.

    One thing I didn't like was the font on the main page. That italic-style script is hard to read......

    Other than that, you've done a good job.[​IMG]

    IO changed the font and colour.the white was I guess harder to read.

    Thanks for the comments

    I'm glad it;s better. I was getting tired of the old one and it was taking too long to load up

    I/m picking up a mini DV so there will belots of mpegs on there this summer

    BTW I like the little Knight animation at the bottom, too bad he's black instead of white.

    The only thing i see wrong with the site is, I am offended by your name.[​IMG]

    J/K--the site looks really cool and loads a heck of a lot faster than the old one. the colors and fonts were fine or me to read.

    Very cool! Having a dinosaur (56k) connection, I can really appreciate your rig now! The old site took FOREVER to load! Oh, one other question: Do you think you'll ever put the K5 body back on?[​IMG][​IMG]

    Theresa,

    I didn't spend a whole lot of time looking at EVERYTHING on your site.....(there sure is a LOT there!)

    One thing that might make it more easy-to-use would be to add "Next Photo" and "Previous Photo" links on some of the pages. For example: I went to the "Monster Truck" section, and there is a main page with about 8 thumbnail photos.....I had to use the browsers "BACK" button each time to view the next photo. It would be easier to navigate if there was an option to view the next photo directly....without "doubling back" to the previous page.

    Hey, it's easy for me to say, I've never designed a website!!!! [​IMG] Maybe it's a PITA to do .....but it seems like a way to simplify the "surfing" through all those pics!!!

    Anyway, kudos on the site.....it looks like it's got LOTS of good stuff there.....[​IMG]

    I didn't realize how slow the old site was load up.
    Still learning......

    As for the picture to picture clicky-- that sounds like a good idea, I'll look into it.
