Hi All!

I started our website about a month ago and finally have a little time to try and tweak some things that I have wanted to change for a while now.  I have searched on these forums but cannot seem to locate the answers to some of the items I have questions so I would appreciate any help you can provide.  I am really new to designing so these may be a bit newbish questions but I am really in need of some assistance.  I have read the Admin guide but again, still need some guidance.  Here are my questions;

1. Can anyone provide any links to some decent (and free) banner creation software that is relatively easy to use?
2. I would like to customize our tabs with images or something but have yet to figure out really how to do it.  I have tried to use some software programs to create some but it really didn't turn out the way I intended.
3. I am trying to make a page for our Bossed Downed with images and dates of them.  Is there a way to do this using an embeded page?  Is there a better way to do it other than using the Image Gallery?  I would like it to be a nice clean complete page of images but I am not sure the best way to go about obtaining that.
4. I notice on the home page there is a gap on the right side where the tab is extended longer than the content on the page... is there a way to line up those items so there is no gap?

Here is a link to our site as it is now Cemetery Gates.  I would appreciate any help on these topics .

Wow your site looks graet i dont think you need to change the banner

1. Can anyone provide any links to some decent (and free) banner creation software that is relatively easy to use? Use photoshop and host the images on Photobucket or photolava

2. I would like to customize our tabs with images or something but have yet to figure out really how to do it.  I have tried to use some software programs to create some but it really didn't turn out the way I intended.No idea I liked the defalta i got so i have not changed mine

3. I am trying to make a page for our Bossed Downed with images and dates of them.  Is there a way to do this using an embeded page?  Is there a better way to do it other than using the Image Gallery?  I would like it to be a nice clean complete page of images but I am not sure the best way to go about obtaining that. I created a forum dedicated to Pics and screenshots

4. Your right side tab is extending because of your "Page Hits" box being wider then the other right side columns. If you could downsize that a tad to match the column above, it should fall into line.


Also for tab design, I use Photoshop.

Edit: For a dedicated pic page, you could also make a new tab page with pics only. Just have a sole content box (not the Gallery if you don't want that, just a custom one) to display your images (or thumbnails) and you can have the dates (and maybe captions) to go along with them.

Thank you for your kind words and advice!  I will try out some of the things you have recommended.  I have been using photoshop but I think that I am just not up to date with these kind of things so I need to get to learning them .  Thanks again!
