Nice Templates but it's better if you put more 3D templates. alot of people look for 3D.

what do you mean for 3D? The templates (in my opinion) are very nice... all of them also have a flash heading on the top of the page.. the only problem is that I am not good at taking screenshots of the templates...

hello mmelen,

I think what linksdot was trying to point out was that your screenshots don't look like it has 3D flashes on them since
the screenshots are pretty small:)

I feel that, make screenshots a bit bigger and post only the
best ones,,,like 6 will be good enough. Then add 'view more
templates' instead.

But since you are a web designer, I wouldn't comment on what
you did wrong.. it looks quiet awesome actually.

I feel that probably 6 Best looking screenshots could be more
effective when looking at the point of view of a surfer.

Marketing... I guess :)

4.5/5 , good job friend.

The menu bar at the top made me think I needed to scroll to the right to see another option (there is part of another box next to "latest news"), maybe tweak this to get rid of that extra piece.

I like you animation at the top of the page with one exception, I was expecting some sort of finish; Maybe incorporate your name & slogan "Template Gallery Experience The Pleasure" into the animation.

For your previews, I suggest switching to watermarked fullsize previews. People that use templates want things fast and more than likely wont want to take the time to email for fullsized previews.

Site speed was fine on dialup.

The next page link at the bottem is pointing to
Code: [ Select ]
file:///C:/html/mb20/mb203/2.html
, you might want to look into that :wink:

Overall I give you a 6/10

- Thanks for finding the "file:///C:/html/mb20/mb203/2.html" Link.

- I will try to watermark fullsize previews... but that might take a while... I just recently finished making these previews.

- What sort of finish were you expecting at the flash... Should I make it longer and in the end say "Template Gallery, The online gallery you'll ever need" Or something like that." or should I make it "Template Gallery Experience The Pleasure". Also do you think I should make a logo?

Thanks For Everything.

I really like the color combinations... and use of pastels... very subtle. I like the Flash at the top... very "sun shiny" I would agree with a prior post that a logo would look a little more professional, rather than the static text of your company name. I am quite impressed with the Templates that you offer. I've never been much for using templates... However, they do help if you have a major "creative block"... buy a template, and start modifying it until it's your own. Might be a good idea if you could give some "live examples" of the flash work on the templates. (rather than the static images) One other suggestion I would make is to change the Scroll Bar Color to a little darker color. For people who have vision problems, (or who are using laptops) it is somewhat difficult to see where the bar is.

your design is good overall it was very clear to me where items were and how to get there good use of color and Thumbnail size. I do not like websites that have realy samll thumbnails it can be interpreted as meisleading sometiomes.

Background is a little too gray and white might want to pick a color that compliments your main sites scheme.

Nice site, the flash header at the top may be better if it did more stuff and was a bit more interesting perhaps if it had some text on it...
