First of all, I have to say that Promise Tangeman is a creative genius. There was no way I could get a custom design by her at the moment (all in due time my friends), but as soon as she released the TimeOut template for Showit, I knew I had to make the transition to SHOWIT. My old template and hosting was great, but it didn’t have the “BOOMTOWN” that I was looking for. Well, for me at least, I can say that it does now.
I absolutely love her new design and most of my friends agreed that it was way better than my old one. Also, since almost all photographers I follow and admire use Showit for their photography sites, I knew it was time.
The pictures pop out more, the scrolling action in the galleries works great and it is much more user friendly. Plus, it just looks so interactive!!
Since I am the type that just needs to have it done and shown NOW, it IS live, but there is definitely a lot of changes to be made in the upcoming weeks. The design process for Showit seems a little overwhelming at first, but with an amazing support staff I have started to get the hang of it. Seriously, major props to the Showit Ninjas because without them I probably would have thrown this Mac out the window.
(Also, major props to Samurai Alex E. at Promise Tangeman Creative for making things so easy and helpful as well!)
Once I know how to fully work it, the site will definitely change a little bit (i.e. my travel/non-profit photos will be up, which are incredibly important).
But for now, please head over to the new website and check it out and let me know what you guys think!!
(Also, please point out any mistakes and changes/ recommendations that should be done).
