The site is simple and looks Pro. Though , you should add more contents , since the navigation bar looks empty , or atleast centre you navigation bar at the top. I have noticed that the support page's layout is different from ther pages. if you can adjust it somewhere under the header , it would look good.

Its a bit interesting that you have an upload page as the homepage; don't I need to sign up as a member to create an account in which to store my pictures? I would also suggest that your support page have the same layout and color scheme as the other two pages. Looks like a project with good potential!

Hey,

Thank you for your comments/reviews. Firstly, our goal was to provide a image hosting service which is easy-to-use, so we decided users dont need to have an account this really just wastes time. However we have plans in December which we'll be introducing User Accounts and we'll still have the old system.

As for the navigation we are improving that very soon and adding more content.

Our support system is run by a script called 'osTicket' this enables a much more user-friendly interface and easyer to understand and we'll look into intergrating our logo/banner into it.

Please continue reviewing as I need to know what users think, also if you will use this image host overs other that is great :)

Not bad. A simple design that works remarkably well, with your hosting system working nicely also. No ideas on improving the site at this stage.

I like the nice simple design. I might want to play around with the google adsense colors to better match the site. Also, if it's possible I would make it that the user gets to choose how many pictures they would like to upload (up to 10) instead of the default always beinf 3.
Good job otherwise.

Hey,

Thnx for the great comments/reviews. Please continue reviewing.

Also, you can choose the number of upload fields. Their is a textbox which allows you to type a number for example '7' then hit 'reload' and it'll give 7 upload fields.

I have already been using it, I love it, it is on my favorites list :-D. I think you should rename the images so you can upload another one. Like imageshack.us.

The site looks simple and pleasing. The one complain I have is the menu bar looks kind of empty. Maybe you can remove the grey background?

Thank you everyone to commented. I have noted the suggestions and most will be used in Version 2 of GuruImages coming in December.

We now have hundreds of people uploading in GuruImages daily, we also are now indexed in Google :)

Thanks again,
Global
