It is going to take some getting use to, like anything new. I think uploading photos is much better. It is harder to get to many things--too many clicks. I think that can be alleviated with more choices on the drop down menus at the top. Like a drop-down under "Galleries" for "my photos". Although I figured it out (it is more round about than apparent), I like seeing how many have viewed a particular photo and he helps me gauge how eye-catching my own cakes are.
The site has more ways to customize views and overall that is a good thing. I just need to spend more time on figuring out how it works.
Thanks for taking the time to upgrade. The site works faster and smoother in Chrome and Firefox. The new IE not so much, but I can't get anything to work right in the new IE.
So in short, good job, but alleviate the number of steps/clicks to get to different areas and the site can go from good to great!
