Gallery Upgrade - Your Feedback
Posted 09 December 2006 - 11:47 AM
I think the blue is a bit overpowering, and I think the photos looked better with a white backdrop. Also when you view someone’s one photo the photo details are a bit messy, that could have been designed slightly better.
But I do think the site runs faster and I like that your avatars appear when you post a comment.

Ah! I see them now - maybe this new version isn't as immediate as the previous one? ... maybe I'll go back to bed ...

As for the Gallery, yep, like the colour scheme, looks more professional, the negatives, no link to a members gallery, that is sacrilege imo, the rating system with poor and excellent the same, exif data to me is an essential, ok you can turn it on, but, I'm a lazy bast', other than that, as usual it is a brilliant site.

I agree with Stewart. I like the random images section. Because of it, I've stumbled across quite a few images I would otherwise have missed. However, hiding it behind a button would be fine with me.
Also, I'm late to the game with overall feedback, but hopefully not too late.
- Why is the comment text in boldface? From a typography standpoint, that's overkill. I find it somewhat visually jarring.
- The blue theme does seem to compromise monochrome photos.
- Add the numbers back to the rating panel, please.
- I'd also like to see the gallery links return.
- The comments on a photo are no longer paginated. This is good.
- The addition of avatars/icons on individual users' comments is a nice touch.
- Displaying the users' geographic locations (if supplied) is also nice. It adds to the sense of community.
Overall, the improvements are good. My complaints, such as they are, are minor.

I'd like the random images retained, and I agree that we must have links to members galleries on their comments - essential to foster some reciprocation. The ability to publish an RSS feed for your gallery (and subscribe to others) would be the icing on the cake, but I guess we're limited by what the PhotoPost software supports.
Otherwise, love it.

Firstly, I'd like to say that I love this site, and I access it every single day, looking to all the new posts and alto to the older ones.
There is only one thing that I do not like at this site... and I have to say it, even if it won't change anything; but maybe there are some others who share my opinion: I DON'T like that sometimens, some of the winning photos are stolen from other photographers, or printscreened from some movie scene... and I think that you should be more careful when you pick them.

The shots are sorted by Title (not quite usefull ). I don't see the most active sorting anymore ? Is it by comments now ? How can I save my default sorting preferences ?
Thanks in advance (and keep up the good work (and Merry Christmas !!! ))
