    G'day all,

    I have been fiddling with web design for only about 4 years. I have my hobby site, and work site.

    Can I get some constructive criticism for my hobby site please?

    http://www.justanothermini.com

    It's all MS Frontpage / Ulead PhotoImpact

    I am self taught, never had advice or input from pro's.

    I am ok with criticism, as long as you say WHY you are criticising.

    Cheers,

    Me.

    I'm not realy a fan of minis, but myt first impresions are "Nice Site".

    when you said you used Front Page I was thinking "Oh god, another dodgy site with over powering backgrounds ect". But it's not it's nice.

    The home page is a little confusing, I was trying to click things that I thought may be links, but wern't.

    The photo Album is nice, but would be better if.

    1. The full size pictures were larger,
    2. They poped up in a seperate window that either resizes to the size of the picture, or resize to a set size and has the pic in the middle with a border that matchs the rest of the site.

    These are just little gripes realy, overall it's a nice, clearly laid out site.

    Thanx for that. I wanted the pic links to open in a themed window. No idea how to do it.

    You'd need to use a JavaScript function to open a window of a particular size, pref with no toolbar, status bar ect.

    The easist way I can think is to use a function that opens a window and displays a page you pass to that function. Then make the page for each picture.

    If you are a little more clever with Javascript/PHP you could just write one page and then pass the name of the picture in the URL.


    Sorry, nearly forgot, you can find a decent Javascript popup genorator here:

    hey newbie,
    i think it's a great site overall.....but,
    my first impression was "where's the navigation?",
    and as richard mentioned, the links weren't clear.

    i actually found it a little confusing overall,
    just so much material all over that i found it hard to figure out the structure of the site. the yellow links didn't immediately register, not really because they're yellow, but more i think because the didn't stand out clearly enough from their little grey-box areas to signify they were important.

    as you've seen from my first site, i tend towards being more visually-cued....and as such, i scan the page at once to get the general idea and to figure out how the smaller sections relate to the whole site.

    i'm sure all the aussie mini fans will really appreciate the site....great material!

    You may want to ditch those two programs and use Macromedia Dreamweaver and Adobe Photoshop instead. They can be quite daunting and are far more professional-level than FrontPage and PhotoImpact, but getting to know them earlier, the better.

    FrontPage is notorious for generating IE-only code sometimes--and generally ugly code for many other elements--which is why it is not frequently used for non-MS-technology-based sites (i.e., sites not built around IIS/Office/MS SQL/etc.).

    I use dreamweaver, photoshop elements and photoshop 7.
    If you mess around in photoshop you'll find that you create some nice graphics.
    Photoshop 7 also comes with image ready which can create some nice animations too!

    Animations are the work of Satan in web pages, but ImageReady does have some more powerful slicing options, apparently. Plus, PS and IR are very tightly integrated; you can switch back and forth with the current document with one click.
