I've been a little curious about the renovations of the photo gallery. I know you're a very busy man Doug, but can you give us a little update on it's condition? Will we be able to select individual pictures to view within a gallery as opposed to having to go through them one by one (not knowing which photo will follow next)?

I'd appreciate any sort of information. Thanks in advance! :)

Check out the photo gallery now. I've "soft launched" it with some new photos and old galleries alike. There are several things I want to improve upon, but let me know what you think of it for now. Thanks.

I like it. I hadnt thought about having it split up by individual band pics per tour, but now it makes perfect sense to me. If it's not too much though, once the gallery gets larger, it would be handy to have some sort of band search feature within the gallery, y'know, if you wanted to stare at a particular set of sweaty dudes with their shirts off and not random other sweaty, hairy shirtless chaps. Much more convenient.

Check out the Epica tour pics FAN, there's some babes in there. As I said to Zack and Peggy, some great photos of Amorphis and others.

FAN - yeah, I intend to put band photo galleries on the associated band pages too at some point. I don't know about a photo-specific search right away, but you'll be able to see all gallery pics on band pages sooner in any case.

^works for me. It goes a long way towards making it seem like there are actual pages for the bands, rather than just a bio. Adding a link to any of the bands album reviewed on the site on their page would help too I think. I am totally looking forward to whatever youre doing for a full-fledged photo gallery regardless. The old setup was just barely inconvenient enough that I never looked at photos at all, even if it was a band or tour I liked lol.

Ah, much better than before. I really like the accessibility of viewing specific bands.

Much more polish has been added to the photo gallery and even a couple new galleries. Check it out. Still not directly linked to bands, but the gallery itself is pretty much all set now I think. Still open to comments and suggestions.
