Do You Think Opening Slide Show Moves Too Slowly? (7 posts)

    Hi there fellow WordPress people. I've already speeded up the show a bit. Additionally I'd really appreciate any more feedback on any other elements on my new site/blog featuring custom prints of my original photo art. Thanks.

    I don't think they should automatically slide at all, that control should be given to people viewing it.

    Thanks for your comment. There are slide shows later in each gallery that people can control.

    My idea for the opening slide show was to simply give people a brief taste of the photo art.

    From my experience, about 5 seconds is good for each image. Anything longer and the viewer may change pages before another image appears.

    I don't agree that it should be left up to the viewer to change images on the home page. It's a good highlight to what the site offers. They can navigate through the gallery at their own pace.

    The only thing I didn't like was when you go to the Gallery page and then select one of the galleries, you open a new tab in the browser. I think you should stay on the same tab.

    Best of luck.

    Thanks for the luck. In today's photography world with everyone and their mother - and grandmother - snapping away, it's good to have.

    That's an interesting point about the gallery page opening new tab. I have each gallery opening on a new page now, which I guess is the same thing. Turns out it's not a smooth transition for people trying to get back to a gallery page after looking at a close-up image page. So have been considering replacing the main gallery page:

    http://patalexanderphotoart.com/galleries/

    with a menu drop down list of galleries, which should make transitions smoother and faster.

    Yes a bit.....as loading time for appearing the first image taking a bit long too.
    increase your sliding show time a little bit not much....overall the site looks good but provide more info on your index pages.

    When you say index pages, I'm assuming you mean the pages of enlarged single images where you can make your print purchases. That's also another point I'm still thinking about. From a visual standpoint, I want the pages as clean and uncluttered as possible so the photo art stands out. But from an information standpoint, I also want to answer all the questions people might have. I've already provided single pages with details about the prints and purchases. If more people mention the lack of info on the actual order pages, that will tell me that's not enough.

    Thanks for your feedback. It's really valuable to have.
