You know something, I forgot how the old one look like. :D

To be able to see the difference, maybe you can post the old one along the side, then we all can see the difference.

So I can only coment if I can see the old one.

Thanks.

New Site

Postby Lesam » Sun Oct 04, 2009 4:58 am

G'day Harald,
A little like YLC, I can't recall the exact layout of the old site, probably because there is no radical change to the eye candy, but it is obvious at once that the site is leaner, cleaner with the elements of immediate interest more easily accessed. On the old site it was a Tour just to get to the Forums button.
A great effort. The change doesn't hit you in the face, you just know that it is a better experience with an old friend.

I do like the new look. Not much of a difference, just enough for a cleaner look and it fits the monitor better and not spread out all over. The slight edge shade helps to focus on the main area. Great work.

Yes, the layout has a new "slickness" to it that makes it appear more up-to-date.

I have two suggestion for even more positive improvement:

1) Redesign the blue logo to be more contemporary. Plus, the bottom edge seems a little lo-res/aliased, even on screen

2) Add many more images/visuals to the pages, especially those which show off your own plug-ins. Your main page could especially benefit from added imagery, especially a full-width banner-type header image. Perhaps this can be an animated gif or auto swap-out image that features one of the PhotoWiz plug-in effects at a time
