I know all this. The pics I posted were just a mock-up of how the site could look 'in the future' when at that time (in the future) XnView Classic becomes dead/obsolete but still available to download. :) Well I hope..

Bonjour,

Si Pierre apprécie pourquoi pas !

Il manque cependant (cruellement !) dans le site une page "Aide et Support" :!:

Le(s) logiciel(s) devenant de plus en plus complet mais aussi plus complexe, il serait judicieux de se pencher sur cet aspect, qui favoriserait son utilisation par un plus grand nombre :D

Bien à vous

I like the new web design: the style, the colors, the font and the structure.

Minor suggestion: after selection of a product on the family-tab, the not-selected products could be shown in a reduced size on the left or at the bottom of the family-tab (they belong to the family too).

The byline, my opinion:
- if there is a companyname, you can use it in the byline (Microsoft does it)
- if there is a main creator, you can use a byline, but maybe not on each site (every book mentions the autor on the cover)
- if there are other contributors, you should mention them in a "About XnView"-section.

The chicken-icon is not my fav, but hey, the software is great. So what.

Thanks a lot.
Btw, I just added a example for the xnConvert "hero" content (accessible by clicking on the xnConvert tab)

Pretty! The orange and blue/turquoise combo is very nice.

Sorry for my belated feedback. Your drafts look both modern and professional, I like that. Very well done, thibaud and budz45! :-)
Also, I like the idea of renaming GFL SDK to XnSDK. This really makes clear that the SDK is part of the XnView family.

as a side note. the "vote for a feature" link at the bottom of the page was inspired by an interesting feature request/voting web service I discovered recently (used by one of my favorite text editor: SublimeText).
check it out here http://sublimetext.userecho.com/
I believe Pierre should look into it, It may prove quite useful for xnviewMP development.

Do you think that a website for XnViewMP must be available even if it's always a beta, with not all features??
If yes, on which domain?
Pierre.

Why not? Of course!
There are many high qualified programs which are official Beta, and many people use it.

No Pierre, I don't think so. A link to a single beta page on the "master" site would be sufficient.
