Great input. Not sure what I can do with the pic on the home page. I can set it up on a diagonal, but can't keep the entire pic as a half and half that changes as far as I know with this software. No sure about an auto cycle for it either. I actually had an info page, and removed it to simplify things. I guess my first impression may have been right. We'll see what we can come up with..Very cool. I love old photos. If I might offer a suggestion on the site. The URL should go directly to your home page. The affect you have is cool, but doesn't give any indication what your in for. If you want to attract prospective customers, there should be no ambiguity at all. Let your work do the talking. It's quite good.
On your home page, it would be cool if the picture was half black and white and half color, seperated on the diagonal. That would be an instant visual description of what your site is about. (Just found the hover mode. I went to the site 4 or 5 times and never moused over the picture. Needs to be more obvious or have it change ever second by itself)
Also, what services to you provide. Do you only work with already digitized media. Will you take prints or slides and digitize them. I might contact you from a website to have work done, but not to find out what you do. Your site should have that info.
Not sure about the names either, but I'll take my chances for the moment. I repositioned the enter page so when you click to enter, in most cases you're cursor is over the pic on the home page. Once you move the cursor, it goes black and white. Can't do much more with this soft ware.Looking good. Maybe you can have the photo on the home page fade to color after 5 or 10 seconds. Still seems hidden having to hover on it. Info page is good. Not sure on using actual business names. Might not be legally kosher.
I had tried an album like that, but it gave me big problems with the enlargement. I can try it with individual photos as I have on the home page, but It may mean loosing the frames. I'll play a little with it, but really like the frames.My only suggestion on the website would be to have all the pictures in your galleries have the 'hover' feature, to see the transformation from b&w photo to color.
