    Beautiful photographs, Walt. Your portraits exude comfort and happiness. I slightly miss knowing what is in them, I suppose a caption of sorts, perhaps because I am not familiar with their context. I fully respect that you may not wish to place any text whatsoever, to make the pictures speak by themselves, in which case, my apologies for suggesting something you may have already thought through.

    On my phone, the photos don't often finish loading before the photo changes, I would put some kind of limiter that only starts the view time once the photo is fully loaded in case people have a slow Internet connection. Though the fact it loads on my phone is good :smile:

    Thanks for the good words.

    I had captions on my old site but found most people never read them.

    The image jump while loading happens on laptops and desktop machines until all the images are fully cached. Usually clears after one full cycle. Will have to explore if there is code I can include to hold the slideshow sequence till everything is loaded.

    Was concerned if Adobe's Muse would write "junk" code to mess up the appearance on certain browsers. Muse isn't perfect, but a heck of a lot easier to use then Dreamweaver.

    Glad to hear it works on iOS. I don't have an iPhone so could not test. Those using iPads have not had problems.

    That's not only lame, it's a scam, I like the idea of cloud software in the way apple handles it, you buy it and its updated for free, not this yearly subscription BS, what if I want to keep the same app for a few years before upgrading, can I still edit my website or will I be stuck till I pay them.

    Sure i have the new Lightroom but I have cs3 dream weaver because I don't need to update it, it works for me. Grrr the times they are a changin'

    There is a real role for subscription software, but that role is for software that is specialized, flexible and robust, and of the type that often requires knowledgeable application support.

    The law office management software I used to use was sold on a subscription basis, and the support was invaluable, because the people on the other end of the line knew about how law offices worked, and how their software could be used to solve problems.

    Ok that makes it much better if there is support with the payments.
