    New SmugMug

    Unlike Flickr, SmugMug has unveiled a new set of designs with a new set of customizations that are simply incredible. I know some of us use both sites for hosting (I no longer upload to Flickr but I stick around for the communities since I'm no longer paying for their garbage). If you don't use SmugMug, I very highly recommend it, and if you do use it and have finished migrating and customizing, SHOW OFF YOUR STUFF!

    Indeed..

    This is the DEFAULT theme I selected. Didn't touch much other than the social media icons and selecting a gallery for the front page.

    I jumped in early - migrated my stuff right after they finished the announcement, so it took about 3 minutes - I know they got backed up later that day. I spent about 4 hours, on and off, on my updated site. I started with the Turbo template, and went from there.

    I wish they had more Add to cart buttons. Looks nice but you have to jump through hoops to buy something. I just ordered a 11 x 14 print in Metallic from my own gallery to see the quality. Think this should show up nice on metal http://loxlygallery.smugmug.com/VinnyOHare/Arizona

    Ginny, if you are getting the Bay Photo prints on aluminum, I can tell you that you will love them. I've gotten a few photos printed that way, and they are outstanding.

    Great stuff guys!

    I agree with Moose about the metal prints from Bay. They are just outstanding.

    I think I'm going to make an executive decision and switch from flickr... I'm getting very tired of their "updates", Moose, I like the way your site is laid out!

    Kenny, your site is nice and your pixel bending is off the hook! I like the simple elegant look and you have it sir

    Manny, Your site looks a little cluttered with the birds in the backround, your Photography makes it a great site and the photos on you cover page are simply awesome. But that is my taste

    Moose, your site is clean and setup similar to mine. I think the slideshow takes away from the site but I like it and use it too.

    Vinny, I do not like how the logo has a different backround, other than that it is clean and easy to navigate.

    I am nitpicking on every site but I need someone to nitpick on mine. I do not like the gallery page, I think it looks cluttered. All the pictures take up too much space and I may make them smaller.... I do not know.... help here please?

    Thanks for the comment Fred!

    Fred, my nit pick would be on your main page. Under the slideshow, the plethora of av pics. We all love a good shot of a military bird and few shoot them better than you but you also have such amazing shots of plenty of other subjects. Mix it up!

    It is in the template where it shows the most recent photos taken...they will constantly change as I upload

    Those backlit airshow shots are not great for presentation.....

    Fred, I totally agree with you on the background on front page... I tossed it up there quickly so I could mod the default! and THANK YOU for the kind words. I am honored coming from you :)

    Kenny, truly great stuff on your site as well :)
