    Hello Peter,
    That's intersting.
    Previously I had a major problem with international spam.
    So I had to restrict certain IP ranges.
    Are you in Germany?

    Paul.

    Hi Peter,
    I have just made some adjustments to my settings.
    Would you please take another look and see if it comes up now?

    Thanks

    Paul.

    yes, now I can see http://www.curlycords.com.au/
    funny, it seems even the URL has been erased from my first post. or did
    I forget to paste it? -

    and now I know what "curly cords" are

    the tabs take very long to load.

    Hi Paul

    I was getting 'forbidden' too. Now I can see it I'd suggest that you
    look to optimise your images to speed things up a little too. I'd
    lighten them too as they do seem very dark.

    For example, I was easily able to lighten and compress one of your
    images
    (http://www.curlycords.com.au/assets/...00119__2_a.jpg)
    from 55.6KB down to 15KB, using the GIMP and come up with a better
    looking image.

    Since I can't paste them here as examples, I'd suggest you pasts the URL
    into http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/imageoptimizer/ and check the 'show
    all results' box to see what can be achieved with compression.

    Hi Max,
    Thanks for that great info.
    That particular image I just renamed yesterday...so it's not displaying now.

    That is a great site you listed.
    It's really good to see the effect the compression has immediately.

    So what I have done previously, Most (not all) images I have are taken
    with my Sony A350 14.2 Mega pixel DSLR camera,
    Then using Paint.net (not MS Paint) I crop the image, and resize it to
    30% Original Size, A couple I have adjusted the brightness. (But mostly
    I have not)
    Then place the image on the page using Fusion, and resize it even
    smaller to fit where I want it, and tell it to use Best Jpeg setting.
    I thought this would be appropriate.
    It seems there is a lot more size we could reduce by changing the
    compression even further.

    Do you feel the optimisation within fusion is sufficient?

    Also it's interesting what you say about the brightness.
    On my main monitor they all look great.
    But, when I move it to my other monitor, I agree they mostly look too dark.

    Clearly my monitors are configured differently.

    Thanks again for your assistance.

    Cheers
    Paul.

    Hi Paul

    Because I don't upload large numbers of images each day I have the time
    to edit them individually - otherwise the NOF optimisation could be
    attractive. Those that are too dark I lighten using GIMP's curves tool
    http://www.gimp.org/. I also use a calibrated monitor so that I know
    that they look as intended when published (although I can't control how
    they are viewed, of course), so you might consider investing in a
    low-end colorimeter such as the spyder3
    http://spyder.datacolor.com/product-mc-s3express.php. You might also
    want to buy (or make
    http://digital-photography-school.co...ive-light-tent)
    a light tent too.

    Any other other glaringly obvious problems that I have missed?

    I was having trouble with the link colours.
    Do they look OK?


    Thanks for your help.

    Paul.
    Yeah your site is really to wide and I think you have fix it. If you are not an expert in this then I would highly recommend you to hire an website designer or expert from freelancer's platforms like fiverr, upwork, freelancer, etc.
