    How many are too many? How many are not enough? I'm trying to decide if I should cull some of my galleries down before launching my website.

    well, I don't have enough to do this but if I was browsing a site looking for a pro, I would like about 15 - 20 of your best pics per category. Much more than that I think might be kicking a dead horse. If I don't like what I see in the first 20 pics, it isn't going to be better later... vice versa if I love the first 20, I'm probably gunna like whatever comes after. I'd say like, 2 pages of 10 pics each maybe.

    I've heard that 20 per gallery is a good rule of thumb

    I completely agree.

    To be honest, if I don't like the first five, I'm going to close out of your website before going any further. However, if I really like the first few I see, I'll look at every single one.. Example would be tits' website with the pictures of his daughters.. I've seen every single one he has on there :cool:

    I do 10-20 for a printed portfolio and 20-40 total with less than 5 categories for the web.

    If you're unsure AT ALL about a photo, can it.

    Looks nice.

    The "life" gallery has a little too many pictures IMO, but the rest seem good.

    Thanks Kristin, I'll probably cull a few out.
