    Photo Gallery Opinion Wanted

    I've been playing around with different ways to display photos on my website. I'd appreciate it if you'd check this one out and let me know what you think. You can right-click on the page and go full screen mode to see larger pics. Also, you can turn each pic over to read the description. (For now, the descriptions are real brief.)

    Let me know if you like this, of if I should keep looking for other styles.

    Vaughn, that is hot!

    Wow, that is a terrific and dynamic, interactive way to display your pictures. I enjoyed and liked that a lot. Only thing I see missing is that when you flip the picture to see the wood no sizes are given. I am not sure how important that is to you.

    But the display is really special. I like that a lot.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    Thanks Mike. This is sort of a quick test gallery. When I do the final version, I figure the backside of each pic will have the dimensions, the price, and any other story I want to go along with the piece. Between bowls, hollow forms, platters, and a variety of smaller things, I'm looking at having multiple galleries. I figure I'll play with this one and get the kinks ironed out before I set all the "real" galleries up.

    Just for kicks, here's the same gallery, with a lighter background. I feel like an eye doctor doing an exam...Better "A" or better "B"?

    Thanks again.

    It's cute, but I think I'd prefer to be able to see the picture at the same time I'm reading the caption. Especially for anything with a long/detailed caption where I might want to refer back to the photo.
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    Very cool - response was slow in full screen mode. Although it was fun, might take a little getting used to as a navigation tool. It does have a 'cutting edge' kind of feel so it suits you.

    Neat. I liked better after I took Dramamine.

    I haven't been able to see it yet as it requires macromedia flash player.

    I perceive this as some sort of drawback, my concern is Who will be willing to take the time to download macromedia flash player, install it and then start viewing your pics?

    I'm going to do it because you're my friend, but I doubt I'd do it if I was surfing on the net searching for "wooden bowls" or something like that. Most problably I'd just skip to the next page.

    Maybe there in US all pc's have it installed by default but definitely not here.

    Tonight, once I had seen the pics I'll add more comments.

    My two cents.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    At first I didn't like it...to much movement...but it grew on me. I like the lighter background better as well. Unique to say the least.

    I found the constant movement a bit disconcerting, like Frank said, made me feel a bit sea sick. IMHO, techie-types will probably think it's cool. Grumpy old farts like me will probably find it anoying.
