    I'm making www.smitherscustoms.com and am having resolution problems with different monitors.

    Some people say the bikes on the right move down to the bottom of the navigation bar and some people say they are on the right side like they are supposed to be.

    How can I fix this to make it right for everyone?

    Try using absolute positioning for the pics, and comment your code so people know exactly what does what.

    Well, at least you are using css.... but I'll be honest. This design sucks.

    It wont show up properly for anyone whos not running 1280x1024 (or more) resolution, which is about 70% of internet users.

    If you still wanna use it... set the bike image as the div background, so it will be simply cut off, as the window shrinks.

    So should I create the site using 800x600 resolution? Will that shrink things up a bit?

    Design for 1024x768. 85% of the internet has that, or higher.

    What I would do differently? Start from scratch. That huge bike pic is just a waste of space.... if u wanna have it, set is as the div background, like I said.

    if you make those bike images into gif images with no background they will look better if your window is too small and they overlap the middle 2 pics.

    It will still shows up, but u can put text over it, and it wont stretch your page.
