A problem occurs when I try to make a page that has photo links side by side. It seems there are not enough layouts or something because the page ends up being a very long page instead of me being able to have 10 photo links side by side.

Hi Brian

The number of things you can have side by side really depends on the template you are using as their widths vary.

Here are a couple of workarounds:

1. Try making the photos smaller - this will hopefully give you more room to put your photos side by side.

2. Pick a template that is wide which will give you more room.

Can you give us an idea of what you are trying to accomplish? Do you have an example that you can show us that you'd like to emulate?

If you feel comfortable, perhaps you could share your url so that we can get a better sense of your layout and offer further suggestions.

Thanks for the help. I think I was able to get it. There are other small things such as re-sizing and other things I cant remember at the top of my head right now, that have an impact on the progression of the making of the web pages. Has anyone else noticed anything similar?

Hi Brian

Thanks for sharing your url.

Your photography is absolutely stunning! One way to really help make an impact is to try to have your images load up quickly. The images you have are really big and it cuts into the loading time.

I would suggest re-sizing them. You can do this through Picnik or if you have a lot of photos, you can download a resizer. I personally use Pixresizer. You can download it free from here: http://pixresizer.en.softonic.com/

Here's a tutorial which you may find helpful: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/images-...

I would also suggest that you check out this thread about putting images into tables which may help you to get the look you'd like:
