Website almost ready...need feedback
Hello all,

For months now i've been slowly getting my website and photo gallery ready. Now i added one last element to my site, a blog.

I would like feedback on the layout and ease of use of my site.

Please note that not all links are active and some of the photos still need to be uploaded, but i believe there is enough of the site there to comment on.

Main Site.

Blog site: Also accessible by links on main site.

Thanks for looking and taking the time to respond.

I guess you need to work a little more on the web site to get an opinion. It's too much in beta stage.

I haven't looked through much of the site. But, one thing that caused a "red flag" to go up with me is your hosting of the Adobe DNG Converter and including a download link to the .exe on your site, versus posting a link to Adobe's site.

For one thing, the version on your web site is out of date (the current DNG Converter Version is 6.3). It's also a link to a windows .exe file (and some of your readers may be using a Mac).

For another thing, by allowing users to download it directly from your site, they're bypassing the License Agreement Adobe posts on their download pages.

For example, note the license text at the bottom of the Windows download page for the current DNG release here (and note some of the restrictions on where the software can be distributed):

What I'd do is post a link to Adobe's DNG Converter page instead. That way, you're giving them a link to a page that has links to the current versions for both Mac and Windows users; and you won't end up in potential legal "hot water" by redistributing Adobe software.

Here's the Adobe DNG page (and it's updated periodically with links to the current download pages for Mac and Windows):

I think our privacy and terms and conditions are an important item to get finished before you put the site up for sure. Lots of legal stuff that needs to be said! The site is appealing and what you have done is very nicely laid out. Good luck Travis! Frank
