04-01-2009, 03:43 AM
I am creating a personal photography gallery, like a portfolio, what you see here (http://valentepvz.comuv.com/default.html) is what i did till now, dont know php and even mysql, but i am trying to find some tuturials that can help me making an action script to the forms that i will create to post comments individualy on each photo, I know that i will have to format some of the fonts size and colors etc... But just want some opinions.
Please dont talk about flash... Dont want that yet.
In total I have 200 pictures to work to the web site, so as you can see this is not to get visitors to my website.
See you till first reply.

Work on your background. I suggest to make it more simple, like one or two colors. Pictures on the background is distracting. Name your pages (title).
You also might want to work on fixing coding errors (http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fvalentepvz.comuv.com%2Fdefault.html&charset=(detect+automatically)&doctype=Inline&group=0), its just a good thing.
Best regards.

In the moment iīm checking the errors, itīs an hard work... Puff, will see how this is going. Thanks Roman, already gave a title and changed background picture!

Already corrected some errors they were 130, now i have 60, that wont be solved cause they are insignificant... like making alts to pictures... Some are in javascript wich i am not a pro... So, what you think i should do to improve my website? Now i think it looks much better thanks to Roman... Anyone has more opinions?

Why is it so wide? It doesn't need to be that wide! It almost takes up my entire monitor, and, considering I'm on a desktop-replacement laptop, that's saying something.

I would also create a gallery with groups of images, and separate gallery and home page. Make your home page as an introduction, maybe teaser and couple pictures and link to gallery from there. It would make your site looks more professional.
Best regards.

Ok, separating homepage from gallery is a good idea, but you mean making galleries by subthemes? Thatīs what i thought about... My screen resolution is 1680*1050, how do I change proportionally the size of my website? I have tables, and dont know how to work with divs...

Check this (http://www.w3schools.com/css/default.asp) and this (http://htmlite.com/CSSintro.php) out. Spend a little time reading about CSS, you will love it! Its easy, fun, looks good, and more professional. Once you will start using CSS you will look at the tables like at nightmare. Use tables to store data, but don't use tables to style your web site - is not a good idea. (I think most (if not all) designers on this forums will agree with me)
And you can always ask for help, and we will always help you here. :)
