    I took a few hours this weekend and redid my website. I got a new server from HyTek hosting and downloaded a few programs to help me out. It's still a work in progress. I'm in the process of uploading more galleries. What do you guys think?

    I was going for simplicity...at least for now. I have no clients, so It's really just something to put on a business card and grow my business. I used iWeb and a program called iPhoto Export that creates simpleviewer galleries.

    Is it possible to publish an iWeb site without a .mac account?

    iWeb lets me make header pictures really quickly.

    yeah. I don't have .mac. When you're in iWeb and you creat a site, just go to file>publish to folder. That will get you everything you need and then u just upload to your server via an FTP browser. It really streamlines the whole process. :bigthumb:

    Main site. Dunno what font to rock with, I just don't like that one. Looks like a bold arial, something weird about it.

    Agree about the font. Looks nice...loaded really slow for me though.

    I need to contact HyTek about that. I've pulled it up at many different speeds. Fast - slow. I dont know whats going on.

    meh, wasn't too difficult to just hit the back button :dunno: once you get the other galleries opened up it may be nice to have a quick jump function to other galleries

    Nice I have to look into it...does the blog allow people to leave comments or do you just have that disabled?

    I agree with others the font is kinda weird :hs: oh also theres no way to get back to your main site when you are browsing the gallery, you have to hit the back button on your browser thats kinda annoying

    I like it because once you enter the site you have a kawi on it. Nothing else matters. :)
