    Fresh Ideas Welcome

    Our site isn't new, it's been online for about 4 years. I, however, am new to the company. I would love some critique from the knowledgeable folks on this forum. Please be brave and tell me what you think.

    Much appreciated in advance.

    Good stuff.

    Stock photography sites need to be really simple and light when it comes to the graphics to load quickly.

    The only thing I can think of is to have the Royalty Free and Rights Managed photos in different places. When their all together it would be really easy to get all excited about an image only to find out seconds before you buy it that it's a RM photo.

    Looks good. One quick suggestion though. Instead of a featured image of the day, how about a different image on each reload. I may visit a stock photo site multiple times throughout the development of a project (and throughout the day) and a fresh image may inspire me in a way that wasnt seen before. Just my two cents. Now go review my site!

    Very neat layout. The content and function bar on the right takes a little time to get adjusted to, but it does its job well and I am sure people can get used to it.

    One thing I find is, your "inner pages" look better than your front page. I believe it has something to do with how you display the daily featured image. I suggest you to put a border, or a matching picture frame graphic around the image to enhance the overall feel of the front page.

    Hi,

    Like the site, nice and simple,
    Have you thought about displaying the most popular/downloaded/purchased images on the home page as well as the featured image? Just an idea

    Nice clean design and layout. Quick loading which is very nice for a stock photo site.

    The 4 "headlines" just above your bottom nav are quite confusing though, I thought they were bottom nav

    very clean and easy to load. In my concept, a stock photography site must load quickly. I mean the site structure, not the photos in the site. Some sites take 5-10 min to load. But this one is really fast.

    Good work....
