    Small suggestion, but I think you ought to make the word portfolios on your home page a link to the portfolio page and not just the image on the page. I first tried clicking the word and found that it wasn't a link. I do think it is a very attractive site and, of course, your work is fabulous.

    Paul, good catch. I've fixed that, worked a bit on the editing as Suzanne suggested, and added an "about me" page.

    I started to work on those white borders, got frustrated, and gave up. I'm going to search for some way to process those images in batches.

    Hello Andre,

    To increase visitors fill in at the photo-properties also the alternate text line. It will be used by search engines to create a link to your site.

    IF you have access to Photoshop, you can make it a batch action, and run it on an entire directory. It may take a bit of tinkering to make sure it works exactly as you want it, but once you get the technique consistent, you can knock it all out in one shot with a few mouse-clicks. If you do this, make sure you have a backup copy of all files before you run the batch, in case it doesn't consistently transform every file.

    Unfortunately I don't have photoshop... I use GIMP for now, and as far as I know it can't do batch processing.

    I don't know... to be honest I see a little charm in those white borders. But maybe I'm just rationalizing now.

    Marcel,

    I'll see what I can do about that. Thanks for the hint.

    With the pure black-and-whites, now that I look at them more, it may not be a bad idea to keep the white borders, especially since you're doing the filed-out carrier thing. Helps set the image off from the background a little, and lets viewers know that the filed-out border is part of the image, and not a decorative pattern applied in an image-editing program.

    It looks pretty clean to me. Two smallish things: Some of the fonts are a little boring, esp, the prominant "Portfolio" on the front page, I don't mean to use something fancy, just that I'd look at a few others. I could also use slightly bigger thumbnails on the gallery page, though you may have a reason for the size I imagine.

    It's better than mine for sure. Because I-aint-got-one-yet!
