Nice layout, but you should use thumbnail images... people can click to see the full size pictures anyway. Nobody likes having to scroll left and right.

I like the scroll to the right approach..thumbnails take to long...this is more instant..
anyway most you can see in one go as they are portrait..
Also once you've scrolled to the right you don't have to scroll back and can see them all in one go..

You can still click on them to see them..

Wonder if to make a slideshow in blog next?

After showing my website to my Mum you are right Digi..the images need to be smaller.. :) :cheers:

Also changing my domain name tonight to www.petergrayanimals.co.uk instead of my old one www.pgcartoons.co.uk

*EDIT: Quote removed as requested*

That's a large catalogue you got there.

But your post needs tweaking slightly. You should disable smilies because the number 8 got converted into the Cool emoticon.

imageshack has let me down...they are going to delete 1000 pictures unless I upgrade and pay every month..March is the deadline..

so I'll be reuploading resizing to lesser memory...
Lew Stringer warned me not to rely on outside sources for pictures and he was right..
you only meant to have 500 pictures in imageshack I have 1650... :( so will be very busy sorting out my blog as quickly as possible and backing up pictures... :headbash: :P
