Default Gal's suggestion

Gal's suggestion has my full support, think it has worked very well in the link provided, and while some disagreements may on occasion arise (doubt it will happen often), think this will work, just don't allow options for pink, yellow, orange, ....

Adam,
And idea to keep your present colours important in the design layout, agree not just a background change.

Default Could this happen? Very likely, unfortunately

And good insight on your part. However, I do like the option of making the background a user preference. Second to that, I say let the photographer choose a background when uploading.

But that said, I don't necessarily think there's anything wrong with the color or presentation as it is, and frankly I wouldn't want to see TrekEarth jump to conform to a look and style that every other website is already doing just for the sake of being conventional.

A: Black

Why?

a. It is much easier on the eyes, specially on CRT monitors or under certain conditions of lighting; (Anyone who ever suffered cataracts will know what I am talking about).

b. It 'frames' better the images.

Regards to all,
Carlos

I didn't make it through the whole forum, so I don't know if this has been said already, but...
if the background was white, a white frame would just disappear without a little black boarder, and if it was black, a black frame would disappear. I don't know if I want to do that much work to add a frame with a differentiating boarder. I'd just pick an in-between background and go with the gray. I like the option of white for second choice. But that's just me.

I would honestly go for the darkish GREY, the one shown by Homehomer in his
post here.
Reasons:
1. Greater visibility for the pics
2. Classy
3. Will lean us a little more toward a photojournalistic "look", which I can personally live with ;o)
