is what I've been glued to for the last 12 hours. My wife stumbles on this poor place and now I'm milking them dry. They offer free flash website creation, hosting, all sorts of goodies. But I figured, I'll live with a small Wix ad and a couple links on my inventory page just to use this awesomeness they have.
That little photo gallery took me all of ten minutes to create. You can ignore the eight hours I've spent since, tweaking it to make it JUST right on the templates I've snagged from FlashMint and FreeWebTemplates. And I collect pictures of cars on my computer so a couple of years-old Craigslist posting photos worked just fine for a sample inventory.
See the header? That little yellow Datsun 210 flying across a dirt road has been in my stock photo album for years and I finally get to use it! Adjusted the contrast, brightness, made it transparent against an orange gradient background, put some title text on the right, added shadows, adjusted the transparency, and bing, I've got a beautiful header!
I think Wix is going to see a lot of me in the near future. I'm going to forget offering a search function on my website and just have the photo gallery. There are several different kinds and I'm going to switch to one where the caption is easier to read, and when you click to zoom in, it expands the caption with a full description of the vehicle as well. I just haven't tweaked that part of it yet.
Go play around with it
if you like. For someone cheap like me, it's a great alternative to buying CS4 and a new Mac to run it.
