Hi,
I am in the process of making my own site. Perhaps it would be helpful if I show you what I have done in a class I recently took.

Just wanted to let you know about the process in doing this.
I did the layout using photoshop. Every button and rollover is done from scratch.
Then slice and use DW. Since I have not use any server, It can't be vieweed online.
This is a project from my class so we don't have to put it online. We just needed to create the basic layout.

However, I have been wanting to create my own photography's site.

The question is how do I do a site like
http://www.stepheneast​wood.com/ (external link)
(BTW, his work is awesome!)

I wanted the images to scroll horizontally.
Should I create the layout using photoshop first? Then inserts images that I wanted in flash?

Thanks for reading the long post.

Personally, I hate flash, especially accompanied with your choice of music? I want to see what I want to see when I want to see it with the smallest # of clicks possible.

Free JAlbum.net (external link) - Will build excellent galleries & now has free hosting, too. A few skins incorporate shopping cart features like FotoPlayer ($39-$89). (external link), & some of those aren't free.

I haven't used their hosting, but did use a skin for one my gallery pages.
"ExhibitPlus" (external link) I think.

That site is a JavaScript gallery, so you could just search around for such galleries, the code is often available free. I don't see any photoshop "slice and dice" going on for the site, hopefully your class wasn't entirely dependent on that method.

I also use JAlbum for some galleries, you might look at some of their skins - they may have one that does this horizontal scrolling.

Well, after a little study, I quite have some option such as using gallery2 as well. I have no knowledge in these area. I will most likely to try one of these.
And according to this thread, it has some advantages and disadvantages in both.
I think a little bit of flash is cool. :) But I don't think mine will have any funky music going on. I just want it plain, simple with no unecessary borders on mine.
Thanks.

Unfortunately, those examples that I showed here is made from Photoshop from scratch with rollover too. :) I am not a fan of doing those.

Do you mean something like

Thanks Dave.
I will take the first step to make my layout on PS. And leave blank space for my images.

Hope somebody would chime to this one.
I have just finished my layout but I just got stuck on how I can make the gallery.

What I wanted is something like this. Click on "portfolio" and you see what I meant.

Azzure,

You might want to keep in mind that people hate scrolling, so try to keep it under a single page ... the real estate should be limited to 950x680 or so for a 1024x768 screen.

aram535,
Nice to hear that from you. I prefer scroll than clicking on small thumbs. Small thumbs often needs .3sec to upload maybe!? Not too sure, but there is always a lag time for it.
My choice for horizontal scrolling is that once the page is loaded, It can auto scroll or visitor can scroll to view it at faster rate.

Yes I will have it at one page for these images. I can create another page name "port 2" or something like that to have a similar page.

Anyway, I am still wondering how to do it.
Thanks aram535!

I thought I missed the link!

I assume this is just a template and not your site. Honestly I hate to scroll horizontally and usually I leave. I don't mind scrolling vertically, since I can use my scroll wheel.

It can scroll horizontally as well.
So, I'll need just a template?

Is there a way I can do it using flash or DW?
I have cs3, DW, Flash. But just not too great with them.

If there is any tutorial on this, please refer me.

You actually want that? IMO, that's a bad thing.

Where did you pull that info from?

Scrolling is a standard practice these days (vertical scrolling is anyway), its standard navigation for forums, blogs and a massive number of other websites out there so I think its a bit of a stretch to say that people hate scrolling.

Aye

I know how to design my template, slice it, do RO.
Do some bungy jumping stick man animation on flash but not gallery like the above. I found no tutorial on it. :(
