    Hello eveyone,

    I just put my own photo / graphics website online this weekend. Currently I have 184 images uploaded into my gallery. Downloads are free. I'd appreciate an overall critique of the website and the images. Any suggestions you have to improve it would be greatly appreciated.

    Here's the URL:

    Thanks,
    Darren

    Very cool looking, but the splash screen is functionally useless.

    Also these buttons:

    are next to impossible to read.

    Thanks filburt1. The buttons came with ImageFolio's basic skin. I can modifiy them to make the text easier to read. As for the splash screen, it's pretty much a place holder at the moment. I'm still thinking of what I'd like to have as my entry screen. I appreciate you taking a look at it for me.

    I really like the quality of the images. Sharp like a ZZ-Top-dressed man. I haven't seen any images that are being given away for that quality...well, ever.

    The site itself is very neat and clean, and I like the fact that given the nature of your content, it's a very quick load. The colour scheme is very nice as well.

    The only things I'd change are the buttons, as filburt said, and the fact that you're giving away too much too cheaply. I respect and love the fact that you're giving away the images that you're giving for free; however, you should also have a link to your company's site (if it has one) where people who "want quality custom design work at a reasonable price" (replace with your choice of marketing slogan) can come to you and have their wallet siphoned dry...I mean...get quality custom design work at a reasonable price. I think you know what I mean.

    I agree with TheGame (what else is new). The site is laid out well, I like the ability to choose how many thumbs per page. I find it very generous of you to allow use of your images for non-commerical and commercial use. I already have your site bookmarked.

    I'll do my part and give it a link in my sig as long as you keep the philosophy that you've started up.

    Thanks guys. I appreciate it. I do plan on keeping the images free. In time, I might offer some for sale items. Maybe a CD collection with some web templates. Right now I'm pretty busy with my full-time job so it will probably be a while. I will keep posting new stuff to the Pixel Perfect gallery so check back often and tell your friends :-)
