Cool...I found a nice reflection effect in photoscape....A little different in that you can change perspective easily.

Yes it does...It is a decent program for simple things....I have just found that within some of these free things you find little gems of effects.....This is one I did of my guitar

Looks awesome!!!

The only way I can think of you placing your banner higher, is to simply hide all your menu pages. Right now you have a menu tab up there so by removing this (hiding it) may bring your banner up higher.

Also... the thingy on the left hand side - first of all.. it's not clear what it is at first. When I do go to hover over it, the box shakes a bit at first, then it settles down. After that, it seems to be fine.

Lastly, I noticed that you have a right-click disabled script to prevent people from copying your images. I wanted to see if that worked. Unfortunately, it did not seem to. I was able to right click one of your images and save it to my desktop. I just wanted to make you aware of that.

You are a fantastic web designer!! I just love the images you use. They really make your site stand out and look so professional.

I understand that there is now way to stop people from copying your pictures - I just didn't know if YOU knew that! Since you went through the trouble of adding the javascript to disable the right-click, I just wanted to inform you that this does not prevent users from copying your images on Firefox. Sorry for bringing up something of which you were already obviously aware.

What I read from Littleus' reply was that she said that she "Could" not that she "Did"... Anyone using FF can simply right click away at mostly any image and that is truly disheartening. As for my site I have had the entire thing ripped and copied to another website elsewhere at least 3 times this last year... It happens sometimes and we must simply deal with those things when they happen. In my case I contacted the webhosts and the sites were removed (thankfully)

Anyway... I took the dog line as a stick it to her remark. If she had said what a person in the forums said nearly a year ago "Hey Ed I was able to copy your site and paste it into mine. How cool is that?" I paraphrase... Then yes I would as I did to him so long ago read the riot act and like you quote legal actions. My posting believe it or not was quite on the verbal side with me showing my former US Marine temper and Law Enforcement reasoning sides more than ever before. He got the point and did not do it again. (Thankfully) As I have had the pleasure of knowing Littleus for some time now I simply cannot sit back and not say how I felt on the subject.

If in the process of looking at your wonderful site I had said "Hey Sagar buddy you know that your right click disable code does not work in FF and I or anyone could copy all your images if we wanted to" and I heard a dog and lock line it would frustrate me to no end as I clearly did not say that I did copy and save your images to my computer. Anyway, I just feel that there was a little harshness to a MOST valued member of this community when she did nothing wrong but try to HELP.

As to your site it keeps getting better and better. I am not one who ordinarily likes a black background but you seem to pull it off QUITE WELL my Aussie site building comrade. I would repeat Littleus' remarks in that your images are quite large. The PNG images almost always are and optimizing them almost always results in lower quality. I think that you may benefit from using Dynamic Drives optimizer http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/imageop... and simply convert from PNG to PNG and select from the displayed 6 or so results. You may be able to reduce your menu buttons size by 75% and the main images by 50% without loosing much visible quality.

Keep up the great work and Happy site building

First of all, thanks Ed for sharing your comments. I really did appreciate it. =)

Sagar... while I did feel you came across a bit harsh - I don't believe you intended to. Perhaps I did not articulate clearly that my purpose was simply to inform you that the right-click disablement does not work on Firefox. I do not have any of your images saved on my computer. I just wanted to put your mind at ease at about that. I most certainly respect your work and was only trying to help with the tips I gave. You have a great future ahead of you as a website designer.

You have to sign up with Get Satisfaction as a company.....Just go to their home page and where you see companies click it...You will end up with a forum that looks just like Yola did here before the custom background.....If you go to the top of the page here to the search bar and type in Kan Thai Decor you can go right to my company customer service.....Although no one uses it yet my customers all seem to call me instead.

Very cool. I wish I was as good at design. The little slideout box regarding the deal on business cards is kind of hidden--that is you can't really see what it is except that there is something there--it does slide out when you click there but I would think you would want a word or two visible. This is using Safari.
