dope, simple web sites?

Recommended Posts

i need some ideas for a website layout for a photo based website. ive been working on it on and off (mostly off) for a year or so, but i cant come up with a lay out i like.

hook me up. i dont want to have to think anymore.

 

no flash.

that hifi layout is kinda dope. i could do wiithout the stuff that moves, but whatever.

 

my problem mostly, is how i want to handle the photo section, which will be the bulk of the site.

i fucking hate sites that have a bunch of thumb nails, so you click on one, and it gives you the full size pic in the window, so then you gotta hit 'back' to get back to the rest of the pics. that shit is wack.

and to make things more difficult, ii have alot of photos that are crazy dimmensions, so whatever i make, has to accomodate all sizes equally well. which is easy, until you start caring about balance and astetics, and then its a pain in the ass.

 

its taking me way, way too long to get this done.

maybe its just safari, but it doesnt load real well.

a picture is worth a thousand words. but 3 or 4 words dont make me want to click on the picture.

yeah, my feeling zakkkkly.

 

but i was talking bout the previous 'magazine' (for lack of a better word) style of site they had in the interum before the current layout. but whatevs. that way you can kinda have a story behind the series of fotos you are posting, making it more interesting for the viewer, and giving them a little more insight on the photos. as well as that, it saves you having to upload a zillion fotos in one go, and gives you lots of surplus material to add in future days/weeks/months to keep heads coming back for more and not leaving any gaps in the updates as hifi have been known to do on occasion.

yup, there was already gonna be a little story for each. usually i just do the stories as 'alt tags' though. so you gotta roll over to get em. kinda sneaky, sneaky that way naw'mean.

i like the click a thumbnail > load picture > back button

but then again my back button is on my mouse so its not really an inconvienience for me, seeks, theres 2 options i can think of, either

 

A) have the thumbnails in one frame and then have the pictures load up in another

 

or

 

B) click the thumbnail and have it load in a new window

 

those are both pretty obviouse answers, but relativly simple set ups

 

maybe i helped somewhat...i tried

Curious... why no Flash? If I were you, and was looking for a way to come up with a different type of navigation, I wouldn't discard Flash right away. Unless you're ill with Java. Flash doesn't have to "look and feel" like Flash if you handle it right.

i just meant no 'flash sites'...know what i mean? some tastefull flash is fine, and ultimately, i'll wind up using some im sure, but it will be minimal.

not sure if you've seen my present site mams, but it'll be along those lines.

 

i could make it so each thumbnail clicks open a new window, which would be cool, cause i could force-set the dimensions to the exact size of the pic, which would solve my 'randomly sized photos'/layout, problem. if i did that, id make it so you just click anyplace in the photo and it would close.

one thing i like, and the direction i was going, was a sort of 'slide show', where when you click on one pic, it opens up a pop up with the pic in it, then << . >> navigation back and forth. the problem with that, was the dimmensional shit, which i mentioned.

blah.

i dont know why im telling you all this stuff. no one cares but me.
