I've been quiet from here for a few months; work, chest infection, trips, new ebsite. Yup I finally took the plunge, got rid of SSP even though it has the best UI out there and took up with http://www.creativemotiondesign.com/
Decent enough, there are quite a few buggy things about it though. 96 sheets or wide ratio images don't work well and things like having to delete images and re upload them to move them to other galleries.
Well here it is, still doing tweaks and uploading to some categories but for the most part done.
Feel free to critique images; like I said I don't have much that I can actually change to the architecture of the site.

The site worked quickly mostly. The photography is exceptional. I like how you compose and how your atmospheres/environments add its weight to the shots.

I'm curious why the thumbnails all look washed out ?

The first thing I did when I saw your site was check my monitor. I thought it maybe I'd turned it up too high by accident.

K.C. . . . . and then you moused over and saw them saturate again? They are just the thumbs and only "saturate" when you mouse over. My old one used to have b&w thumbs till you moused over then they became colour.

Did you feel the images flowed? I'll be culling them down quite a bit but just looking for opinions on which ones..

I'm not a fan of the screened back thumbnails either, never have been... I think the border treatment you do on the rollovers is much better on it's own.

I love looking at pages of thumbnails. I think they can be beautiful on their own as a design element, so I always feel like the images on them should look their best.

Ya, unfortunately I don't get any real options with the thumbs; they is what they is.

Do you have access to any of the CSS, or is it just a Flash template?

You don't see the public_html folder when you access the site by ftp ?

You have a subdirectory called cms that contains your css.

Here's your css file

*
{
font-family: Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 10px;
}

html, body
{
width: 100%;
height: 100%;
}

body
{
background-color: #ffffff;
background-position: center middle;
background-repeat: no-repeat;

color: #cccccc;
// color: #cccccc;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;

}

body { overflow: none; }

#Dflashsitewrapper {
height: 100%;
width: 100%;
min-height: 600px;
max-height: 2400px;
min-width: 900px;
max-width: 3200px;
overflow: auto;
}

html,body {
height: 100%;
width: 100%;
}

* html div#Dflashsitewrapper {
width: 900px /* fallback value */;
width:expression(((document.compatMode && document.compatMode=='CSS1Compat') ? document.documentElement.clientWidth : document.body.clientWidth) > 32018 ? "3200px" : (((document.compatMode && document.compatMode=='CSS1Compat') ? document.documentElement.clientWidth : document.body.clientWidth) < 920 ? "902px" : "100%"));
}
* html div#Dflashsitewrapper {
height: 600px /* fallback value */;
height:expression(((document.compatMode && document.compatMode=='CSS1Compat') ? document.documentElement.clientHeight : document.body.clientHeight) > 24018 ? "2400px" : (((document.compatMode && document.compatMode=='CSS1Compat') ? document.documentElement.clientHeight : document.body.clientHeight) < 620 ? "602px" : "100%"));
}

#flashsite {
height: 100%;
width: 100%;
overflow: hidden;
}

#site_by_cmd,
#copyright,
#copyright a
{
font-size: x-small;
color: #cccccc;
// color: #cccccc;
}


#flashsite_obsolete
{
width: 100%px;
height: 100%px;
}

#flashsite,
#main,
#inmain
#copyright,
#site_by_cmd
{
text-align: center;
margin: 0 auto;
}

#site_by_cmd a
{
color: #cccccc;
// color: #cccccc;
text-decoration: none;
}

obsolete
{
position: absolute;
left: 50%px;
margin-left: -50px;
top: 50%px;
margin-top: -50px;
}

You host it on their server. You can pay the $100 to have it transfered to your own and then meddle with all the code but for now I'm happy with it overall.
