Hi John, Firstly, wow, a whole month, that long already. I never intend to ignore people who respond to me, sorry, but I have been away for some time, am back now, but am busy moving house and this will take at least another two weeks of my time, so I have had very little opportunity to have a natter on the forum.
thanks for your input. yes I suppose I have often messed with the idea that I need to present things differently on the web - the actual images are stunning when printed but the web does them a serious injustice. Unfortunately I am so fed up with the the time and energy and learning curve of re-designing my web that I have had to settle for this as is presentation. There are too many complexities in web management and design - I really have decided that the stress is not worth it. I had to, a little reluctantly, decide that enough was enough when it came to learning and managing web presentations and simply accepted standard templates as an alternative.
thankyou for your points by the way.
