If you are really bored can you take a peek at

www.johnlarry.piczo.com

Is is very simple but free and I have over 500 images on it.

Regards.

John

You need to exclude the last dot to make the URL work.

You have some fantastic photo's there but I'm not fussed on the design, for me it lacks that professional sheen.

Is there any reason you haven't used Photium or the like. Does it come down to money??

See Here.

I can recommend them.

You need more impact on the opening page and once you open an album to be able to view the thumb nails quickly.

Yes, that's certainly the "ugly" side of the site, I never got to see the the "good , the bad", I was outta there. Saw two pop ups in the brief time I was there, one something to do with mobiles, and one for web sites. That isn't the way to keep people on your site.

Why go for free hosting? With free hosting you have all sorts of popups and adverts.

Hosting is sooo cheap these days, you can get a year for a tenner in some places.

Actually, Heart internet offer free hosting without adverts, I just remembered. Its only a small account with limited features, but it should do the job for you.

Interesting comments. Not what I was expecting but enough to make me think about changes.

Many thanks

As has been said, your photos are impressive, but I agree about the popups. Also the white background is too bright for me - it is very distracting. I also found the navigation a bit awkward. Have a think about using one of the hosting companies like Photium and Clickpic. I'm with Photium, and am very pleased with it.

I have had a lot of initial hits on my site but not many visitors had gone further. I now know why.

I'm afraid I'm one of the ones who didn't go further, the pop ups really spoil it for me.

Yes, I can't think of a surer way of driving people from your site, ask again for opinions when you have got rid of the pop ups! ; )

Very nice pictures, but the site is horrible.
I would never go past the first page on a site with such poor design and popups.
