My revised site JeffColburn.com has launched. Head on over and take a look.
It now offers:
- The ability to click on any image to see a larger photograph, so you can more easily see my images
- Working well on mobile devices
- A shopping cart, to make purchasing photographs faster and easier
- And for me, fast and easy updates to the site
For the past 16 years I’ve been hand coding all of my websites, and augmented that with Dreamweaver when it came out. But I’m changing things to give me more time to take photographs, and spend less time doing the business stuff.
To that end, I’ve spent the last several months researching how to make the maintenance and updating of my website faster and easier. I decided to change my website to a database site, and checked out Photocrati, Zenfolio and Photoshelter. I went with Photocrati because it’s easy to use, includes a shopping cart, and costs much less than any other database site with a shopping cart. Also, they don’t charge a fee for every sale like many other sites do.
This was the first step of a revamp of my photo business to make it easier to maintain. Most of these changes you will never see, except that I will have more photos to show you.
Head on over and take a look, and let me know what you think.
