"I started working with Mike Hartley of bigflannel in 2003 when I launched my first website. The site immediately won a PDN Digital Imaging award in the website category. A few years ago we did a major redesign which I’ve been using until now. Recently I decided that I wanted a site that I could administer myself and was aware that Mike was developing his template. I looked around at other template sites but was still particularly attracted to Mike’s design sensibilities. I find the software SlideShowPro simple and intuitive to use and especially like the big and bold way the imagery is presented. From the time I started my uploads I was up and going in no time. The reviews have been fantastic and I couldn’t be happier with the way the site looks and functions. I have also seen an increase in hits, pages viewed and time spent on the site."
"Being an amateur photographer I looked at an affordable way to publish my pictures on the internet. I looked at a few well known photographic templates but found them to be either too expensive, too distracting or unsuited for modern mobile devices. I even contemplated of building my own (with help) and learned that SlideShowPro was recommended on the internet as a valuable 'new kid on the block'. However, I got totally lost on their website, the setup appeared to be way too complex. Then on the examples page, I came across the site of Eric Ogden, that was it!. I discovered that his site using SlideShowPro was was a custom made design by bigflannel, Mike Hartley, in NY and called him up knowing that it would be out of my league...and indeed it was. But he told me he would be launching an affordable template soon. When he did I signed up immediately and I couldn't be more pleased. The site was ready within a few days and Mike provided a clear user manual on how you can upload and rearrange the content yourself. The template really makes my captures shine, it's extremely professional looking on mobile devices especially an iPhone, or better iPad and the support is fantastic. Mike gets back to you immediately, is friendly and is clearly an experienced professional."
