Just thought you might like to see how the plumbing site is going. I have not completed all the pages yet as I'm waiting for more content, but I think it's looking really sharp. Especially thanks to your backgrounds, Ed! Thanks again.
Here's a screenshot of what they had before

and here's how it's looking now

The link is at http://www.ewertplumbing.yolasite.com Thanks for all the help and opinions. I really want to make this a good one.

Regional thing...We call them taps when beer is coming out of them.

WOW! The site is flushing out beautifully...pun totally intended!

It looks really great. I love the navigation faucets and the emergency service and contact info really jumps out now. The running plumber icon was the best part of the original icon and moving it to the banner gives it much more impact.

Well done and thanks for sharing!

Nice one Diane... Really sweet looking. I am particularly impressed with the mouse over dripping faucets. You know how I love a good mouse over. Especially a self edited image one ;)

You seem to be fitting the pieces of the website puzzle together quite nicely. Its always a great feeling to see it all come together and be able to say that you built it... I am no doubt sure that this will be one of your featured sites in your site building example arsenal.

As to the background images you are truly welcome but truth be told if you ever need to enlarge a small image:

1) Open your Microsoft Publisher as a poster
2) Paste in it the small image you wish enlarged.
3) Drag the corner of the image until it fills the page (or until it looses quality).
4) Then save the page as a PNG image to be cropped later to remove all the added white space. (if you save it as a 300dpi instead of the 150dpi it will most times increase the quality a great deal) Play around with it to make it suit your needs.

That is what I did with the squared and rectangular 280x280px icon images to turn them into an image of 3000x3000 without much image quality loss. I consider this my Publisher enlargement tip of the day ;)

Knowing my secret and how easy it was I don't know if I deserve a link back (LOL) But thanks anyway...

I have created some pretty awesome enlarged images this way and know that you all will as well. This is particularly excellent for creating high detail banners that pop instead of fizzle.

Now I gotta add that one to my tips list ;)

Happy site building
