    don't build your site completely in flash.

    do use lightbox to show larger sizes of the images linked on that page, instead of linking to the images themselves.

    for those complaining about building the site in flash, realize that most marketing executives jerk off to flash. Yes, it sucks for coders and for those who are after ad-revenue and page rank. But, for brochureware, flash will get you calls.

    95% of the top 500 retail companies in the world running brochure sites use flash and pay dearly for it.
