Once you have a template of a website that suits your needs and preferences, all you have to do is replace all the content in them with that of your own, leaving the design just the way it is. If you have the know-how, you can even modify it a bit to make it completely unique and distinctive compared to the original template that you chose. As you get more involved in internet marketing you will understand the importance of having a unique design with unique content, and there are many graphics programs around that can help you to alter your template graphics and text. Some of these are even free, being what is termed 'open source' software.
Imagery is a vital part of an online presence. Without photographs, a website can be a dull and uninteresting place. Static photos are easily added to a website with a few lines of code, but these again are lifeless and easily forgotten. Creating and deploying a website can be a difficult and complex task without the aid of a professional. There are, however, ways that a site can be created that circumvent these challenges. The use of a template can greatly ease the creation process and speed up the deployment time.
The quality of the backgrounds is another factor to watch for. If you're looking for a landscape background, for example, you could ask yourself the following question: was it taken from an actual photograph or was the landscape created with an image-editing program like Photoshop? Sometimes both options could work well as long as the Photoshop background was made in good taste which is usually the case if it was designed by a professional designer. The thing to keep in mind, when making a decision, is that the templates you choose to buy, that will make up your wedding photo album, will last a lifetime. Therefore you want to make sure that you choose very elegant designs.
If you try to contact the template website you bought the template from, you will find many of them not able to help you with your required template customization. As you might notice, there are hundreds of web sites offering exactly the same set of web templates -- as they are just affiliate websites reselling websites templates and flash templates from a third party template provider. Therefore many template websites are just interested in selling more templates rather than doing any customization work, or might just redirect you to an expensive template update service so that they can collection commissions by referring you. They are mostly just 'Internet marketers', rather than web developers.
Good nonprofit web templates should also be clean, trendy and clutter-free. Interactivity and cool design solutions will make the website more attractive but these elements may potentially divert attention away from the main mission.
Is the PSD template user friendly? You want to ensure that the PSD template is easy to work with when editing with image editing software like Adobe Photoshop. When working with these template designs the idea is to customize them by inserting your wedding photos into the appropriate spots within the design. You don't want a complicated template design that contains too many groups and subgroups, etc., making it more difficult and time consuming to work with. You need a template that is both elegant and at the same time, one that is constructed with a simple flow giving you easy access to the different image locations. Essentially, you want to get in easily, add your photo, resize/edit to fit and get out, without spending too much time and effort.
