I have the latest version here. Let me know honestly what you think. I took your previous suggestions longer view times consistent labels etc.



Not sure I like the gray on the labels but not sure what other colors would work as generically.

Its very nice Holly.. feels almost as a screen saver... is there any other way to save the file other than in youtube? How large is the file?

The grey is not that bad, but I understand what you saying... could there be a way that you could add a texture to the grey... like a 'stone' effect so it wouldnt be so 'flat' in color?

The only comment I have is that for me, it is sometimes a bit hard to read the white on the grey.

wow Holly I like these, especially example #2 (where the images grow bigger then fade) and it loads quickly... looks like photobucket has new features huh?

Holly, I'd keep the images up for about 6 -10 seconds for viewing. Anything shorter is too short, and anything longer makes one impatient to move on. I couldn't look through all of the first one you posted because the transitions were about 45 seconds long, which is way too long in my opinion. Titles and sub-titles should be crisp and readable. It looks good when you fade them in and out before the picture transitions. For titles, you could try using a complementary color scheme because complementary colors are contrasting and stand out against each other.

The ones from Photobucket are what they are for timing and title colors. I know the spelling is off that is fixable. Just thought I would throw these out there. I will keep working on it...taking in the suggestions.

Ok here is another version from slide.com not sure yet how to get rid of all the extra stuff on there

Has crisp clear titles, no known spelling errors screen times of around 7 seconds easy transitions This was the one from slide.com that shows the best. Let me know I will figure out how to clean up the pop ups and such if you liek it and want to use it.

I don't see any titles, Holly. What am I missing? Oh, never mind - I just figured out that you have to close the Pet thingy to see the titles. Looks pretty good!

Any tips on how to get rid of the annoying advertising ? I need to look closer at the "formula" and see if I can remove things and still get it to work maybe.

Where did what go? The superpoke pet thing is still there - you have to click on the x in the upper right corner for it to disappear so you can see the titles.
