For the trail riders, do you have more shots/angles? They all look like they're taken at the the same point in the jump, so unless you're the guy in the picture or his mom, they would all look like pretty much the same pic. Are there landings, wipeouts, anything else to differentiate them?

 

Not that I like wipeouts...

that is the basic format for all BMX pics. They arent really meant to be artistic in any way, they are pictures of the actual tricks. I know to you and i they look like a guy in a ball on a bike, but to bmxers, they are awesome tricks...

Cool, so it's the little extra pizzazz at the top? OK, clearly I'm not a bmx'ers mom or I would have known that! But still a wipeout or two would be grand! And if I were ever that high off the ground I would damn well want a picture of it too! And I could guarantee a spectacular wipeout because I fall a lot.

No. Here's the bit of offending code on the bikes page:

 

<body>

<div align="center">
 <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="border-collapse: collapse; border-width: 0" bordercolor="#FFFFFF" width="1100" id="AutoNumber1">
<tr>
  <td width="1100" style="border-style: none; border-width: medium" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" valign="top">	  <div align="center"><!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="banner" --><img src="../bscbanner.jpg" width="965" height="170" hspace="0" vspace="0" border="0" align="absmiddle" usemap="#Map2">
		  <map name="Map2">

 

It looks centered, but the scroll is still there because of this td tag. Fix that width in the td and I think you're good to go.

Ewww. Sorry! I didn't mean that I want to see them get hurt. I just meant the dusty roll-around kinda wipeouts (You know, the fluffy kind with no blood! haha!) . Or landings where you look at the pic and go "AHHH! Did he make it?! " and then he does. But the pizzazz at the top is all good, after I looked closer, that's obviously the angle they want! I talk too much...

with going that high, there is almost ALWAYS a bad fall.. Especially in the woods with rocks and sticks below.. not to mention a bike flying somewhere close behind or above you...

You do that?! I meant no disrespect to any of the riders, I was thinking of customers who don't know anything about bmx thing "COOL! I want that pic of the flying guy!" and then giving them a choice of flying guys... :D

no.. that was actually just so his friends can look at themselves.. He doesnt really sell those pictures, just part of his portfolio.. He HAS sold a few of them to RIDE magaize though.. a pretty big BMX mag that is full of pictures just like that..

 

the thing that makes them GOOD pictures is the shadows, the clarity (because they are moving fast) and the composition (not off to one side)

 

Go to this site

RIDE MAG.

thats the mag he was published in.. look at the pics, most are like his.. up high flying.

Had no problems with the checkout, however the billing address and shipping address still didn't display on the payment page.

 

I noticed something too....once I picked an item to buy, there was no real way to get back to the other pics other than my browsers back button. Now I know I could have used the breadcrumb trail, but it's way up at the top, and if I didn't know about it I would have not known what to do next. There's no back button, etc. Also, the shopping cart is mostly off my screen so it wasn't clear that I had actually bought something. Just some thoughts.

 

I'm liking chili nose more and more :D

what do you mean mostly off my screen.. it is still too wide?? I can figure out a better place to put it..

 

I am just SOOO freaking annoyed at the required customer fields because that did all that.. did you use the same account that you used that time, or did you make a new one???

Same account. Yes, the td's I told you about still aren't fixed or the pics are pushing the table wider.

I'll go look to be sure...

Here's one problem at http://bscphoto.com/catalog/:

 

 

<!-- shopping_cart //-->
<tr>
 <td> 
<table width="130" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="1" class="infoboxborder">

  <tr>
	<td>		  <table width=100% border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 class="infoBoxContents">
		<tr> 
		  <td colspan=3 width="100%">  <a href="http://bscphoto.com/catalog/shopping_cart.php" 
<img border="0" src="images/boxes/table_shopping_cart.gif" alt="check out">
</a></td>

 

The shopping cart link isn't closed with a >

 

Also, I think those pics are too wide for the table. That's what's stretching it there.

wait.. but those td's are on the portfolio page right?? not the shopping cart page.. those td's that are at 1186 are ONLY on the portfolio. I dont see how that would mess with the shopping cart box. the images are exactly 130 i made them myself to the exact size of that table..

I'm thinking your product info table is too wide. I'd give it a value rather than 100% so you can be sure that it doesn't push stuff out.

No, the shopping cart <a href="http://bscphoto.com/catalog/shopping_cart.php" doesn't have a closing >

Should be: <a href="http://bscphoto.com/catalog/shopping_cart.php">

 

It's just something I saw that needed done.

 

As far as the front pics on the catalog page, your printshop_main.jpg is 720px. Add the left column which you've set at 144px for the categories table, and 130px for the right column, and you've got 994px already. That's not accounting for any whitespace.

LOL! Hey, tomorrow the attributes will get fixed. They will.

So don't sweat the small stuff....leave the width for now, people will just have to scroll. You might want to set the shopping cart to come up when they order though, just to cut any confusion for old-timers like me with no widescreens... :lol:

My shrink just hands me my lithium. Thank god. I know what she's doing and what techniques she's using when she tries the talk stuff with me. Kinda doesn't work as well when I'm id'ing the technique... :rolleyes:
