This is amazing news! Those scrollbars are the only thing I don't like about my site, especially on windows.

Hi Marco. New website looks great! Love the animated logo! Good job with portfolio and galleries. A few comments:

Animated logo loop
Although I love the logo, I think it becomes a bit annoying when it keeps animating forever. I don't know what application you are using, but there should be a "loop" setting available for gifs, which by default it set to infinite. I think it would look more pro if the logo only animated 3-4 times, and then remain static.

marcobrivio.photo/WORKS/
The chosen "vertical" layout for the screenshot-type images on this page feels cluttered and confusing. Also, with this layout, each image doesn't fit on my 13" screen without scrolling and the visible JPG-compression on the screenshots is not elegant. Perhaps you should try COLUMNS layout (for example 3 columns) for this page? Also, I would consider using PNG images for these images, although that will be less important when if you change the layout. I don't think visitors will be reading the text in the screenshots, but they give a good overview of your works.

marcobrivio.photo/CLIENTS/
Add an image or image intro? Page feels a bit naked with only text. Also, perhaps use two columns for listing the clients?

Karl. thanks for your precious suggestions. Now I use a not-animated logo. WORKS page changed according to your comments and CLIENTS page with two columns (I still have to think about a INTRO image).

THANK YOU

Hi Karl,

having wanted to migrate my site on stormpix.net from koken, like many others it seems, I came across x3 photo gallery.
I have to say: It really is a pleasure to use, with enough freedom and technical stuff to be not too limiting, but still keeping an easy to use interface.

And most importantly: I finally feel I am in control of _my_ data again. So I'm back to posting on my website again, and not having some algorithm decide when and how to show it.

So thanks for building this and making it fun to publish again - with great performance and mobile friendly layouts. In the end it also helps to keep motivated to photograph!

Tips for koken migrators:
* I use Lightroom with the jfCollection Publisher and FreeFileSync to auto upload via ftps and an after sync action to call a touch.php (somewhere else in the forums) to trigger page rebuild.
* I add text descriptions to image caption; using the following css addition in x3 settings to show the linebreaks.
Code
.popup-caption-description, 
p[itemprop="description"] {
  white-space: pre-line;
  overflow:auto !important;
}
 So the workflow allows me to publish in Lightroom and having new pictures appear on the page with description, without having to log in and upload manually.

Maybe someone can use this.
Any feedback welcome.

Cheers,
Stefan

Thank you Joseph, for taking the time to look at my work. Yeah ... writing .. I wish I would do more of it .. some day ;-)
Had a look at your site as well. My deepest respect. Wonderful work - really "enjoyed" the Monsters in the woods and also reading The Night Walk.
