Hi Anthony

Site just looks a bit "home made"
Horizonatal scroll bar on 1024x768 (but with nothing in that area)
Algin text up under heading (ie computers wrap over to next line)
Use same colour, font and size on text - be consistent body text on font and colour - heading another etc
Dont like visitor numbers - if you must have one them start the counter on 12000, to make it look like your busy!!
Some sort of menu system on your product pages might help

Just my views hope they help or give you some ideas!

Thanks for your comments, have fixed the horizontal scrolling bar and font type/size.

In the stages of deciding how I can improve the design but it all takes time when its a one man team!

Please do keep giving your comments as every sugestion helps.
Thanks Anthony

do not really het an overview of what you are doing. It is a bit crowdy. Maybe try and get yourself a good menu first. People really need to be able to understand in one eyecatch what your site is about.

Concentrate on layout a little, since products you have enough! Cheers;

Hi
The site looks rather jumbled and confusing the navigate. I think a three column layout would help order the contents of yourself, and in the end, make the whole user experience all the more fulfilling.

Consider adding some color and some graphics to the site. I think the biggest issue isnt so much the lack of graphics, but the overabundance of text. Somehow incorporating order into the whole thing would make the site much better:)

That is good advice great, i actually put so much text in to try and get a google ranking and so will do without a lot of it.

I am thinking about the graphics and am currently working on a overral theme to give it continuity.
Thanks Anthony

the yellow image at top on bar, looks pixalated, bad lines, mainly, bad quality

You badly need borders around boxes, its to texy without much of a design.

consider re-design

hi

just had a look at your site...i like the idea...but it was a bit all over the place at first glance...maybe the categories should be bigger..or maybe across the top? these are personal preferences, I guess

not mad on the photo...the edges make it look a bit funny..

also, you have some typos.."to provide AN online..." not a online.." also maybe reword the "ordinary people, such as ..." as it reads like the ordinary people are the movies, etc.

Also, the orange font is not so visible..maybe a darker color.

these are just little things - good luck - hope that helped..

Much better, looking good now

but optimize your graphics, to help page loading times, I know you've not got many but it all helps, any good graphics program will do this for you!

Keep it up

Hi,

Try to emphasize your columns by giving them another color, or just draw lines between them.

Your 'Forward to a friend'-button can shrink and also some of the shade is clipped off.

Cheers

C'mon through me freakin' picture. lol

That sure is a lot of information you have there and I'm sure that it's very useful but we as humans are more receptive to symbols and pictures than we are text.
