Arrange Graphics--- better way?
Check out how I arranged my example images for my CAD consulting firm.. This is VERY crude and there must be a better way!
Here's the page

Do you need so many on the page (page totals 27 image requests)? Maybe you could break the page up into subcategory pages, or only keep a few representative sample images. Do they need to be full-size/weight (total image weight 1.02MB)? Maybe thumbnails linking to the full images (with or without a "gallery" script) would be OK.Big Change Coming Soon - if you want your PMs save them now!

i'm not a fan of the animation that follows the cursor. i would highly recommend using thumbnails if you're only going to have images so you have less scrolling. i also like "lightbox" which is a java script that pops up instead of taking you to another page. a better way would be to describe each image with text and then putting a thumbnail right beside it. also it's heavy on advertisements which seems a bit unprofessional especially with the adsense that follows you down as you scroll down the page.

I think thumbs would work out as well. Check out these for the facebox
Also not a big fan about the stuff following the mouser. Also maybe consider moving your ads beside your images so you can shrink the page height? Just my 2 cents.
