Just another small suggestion - your page titles all have an underline on them. This suggests that these are links. Which they are not of course - if you want to emphasise the titles you would be better doing it in another way.
A pet hate of mine is seeing people that have their own website using an email address like yours: photography(@)jamiejones.demon.co.uk
Just another minor point (you did ask for this you know!) - on the Contact page your telephone numbers are splitting onto 2 lines - if you make the text box that contains them wider you will avoid this problem.
Good looking site. A couple of nitty gritty things.
First, you need to clean up your styles. I know, I know…a coder’s job, but some things can be combined and cleaned up.
Secondly, your page titles. I always suggest to people that they not only add a descriptive title but I also say that there should be some consistency to them. For instance if you added your website address to the titles so it read:
jamiejonesphoto.co.uk // Portfolio » All Galleries
Jamie Jones Photography // Contact Information
and give it sort of a breadcrumb approach. The navigation is prominent already, but I think descriptive and consistent page titles can be a real professional touch. Remember that when users Google search they don’t always find your home-page so proper page titles will give a better titled search result for them to possibly click on.
Lastly, I’d suggest cleaning up the graphic on the bottom for the controls of the slideshow. It’s hard to read and it might be even easier to just build a small table and place a graphic of the button and then what it does next to it.
Overall I’m glad you got through the head-ache of the slideshowpro multitudes and I wish you the best of luck with your photography.
On the email address I issue, I see your point, but I have a lot of
clients, contacts and many other people who all use my demon email
account for the past 12 years.
Same for me. But some years ago I started collecting email from my
own domain as well as Demon, and started putting out the better
address. I keep the Demon one ‘exercised’ for some email lists. The
only people who use the Demon one now are a group I’ve been working
with since before I had any email address at all. They just keep
using and publishing the Demon one.
I could now drop Demon altogether, but I get my broadband from them
and moving would be unlikely to be for the better.
I did have different text on it, to show a change in people comments from the different testimonials. But different browsers shows the layouts differently. some browsers show all the testimonials alined to each other and some show the left hand one dropping lower than the two on the right.
On Georges comments: “If you are trying to cover SEO with the many towns listed at the bottom there are better ways to do so and it looks busy.”
If you want a neat way to solve this problem, make a new style in your
Styles palette. Call it whatever you like, something descriptive like
nowrap or something like that. In the Edit Style screen, click on the
Extended button. Then click New, then enter the following into the
Okay out of the stack of dialogs. Now simply apply this style to any
text that you want to remain all on one line (highlight the text and
click on the style name in the Styles palette), or if you’re setting
type in a table, click on the cell and apply it to the cell itself.

I meant each number splits to 2 lines - so 4 in all.
If you are concerned about them cutting in to the picture than why
not move them over to the other side under the email address.
