and the resolution on my screen is 1280px x 800px, when looking at the site on other monitors it looks huge but on my screen it looks perfectly ok. what size should i make the site for so that it looks good in all resolutions and screen sizes.
I had checked out your site before and noticed that it just barely fit on my monitor here at work (where I use a dual monitor setup, so I’m referring to just one of the monitors).
Those images that you have are clearly the focal point, and look great being that wide, but I think you can shrink down the width while still keeping that feeling.
Another thing you should keep in mind is that nobody wants to read text that goes that wide. You’ll notice that all of Chris’ articles on this site are actually quite narrow. Our eyes and brain prefer this method as it’s easier (at least our brain thinks it is) to read that way.
