    What should I change, please?

    I only had a quick look but my first impressions are that: I don't like the font you've used for headings (sniglet) but that may be personal preference. I think you were asking about the icons a while ago and I feel they work well. The homepage could do with some sort of introduction rather than just being a list of articles I had to search to find the page about you. I guess you are just shy
  3. If you decide to go with WordPress, this may help - I've been collecting links to tutorials and guides here: http://www.janeb.uk/281329?

    Photo Sharing

    Someone shared some photos with me on Google photos this morning, and it was the first time I'd seen it. I have my own family photos backed up (and have given links to family members who never use them) on both Google Drive and Dropmark. If you are prepared to pay, there are places like Zenfolio and Smugmug.

    Creating a wordpress shortcode

    I've not thought this through, but it's just possible you could use this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-show-posts/
  7. Well, I like WordPress. Anyhow, my one comment for now is that I think the text on the full width version is too wide for comfortable reading.

    Website Review

    I'm sorry, I want to be tactful, but the first thing I noticed when I looked a few days ago was the poor quality of the old photo on the homepage. Which confused me as it was so large. What you've said above explains that. How do I tactfully say "Noooo.....! You can't do that to a photo and expect it to look good?" You have other photos elsewhere in the site that are being displayed at a larger size than they've been saved at, and I think you could rectify that pretty easily.

  10. I feel it's ethical if it's not being abused by people posting others' work and claiming it's their own. I'd actually think that's more likely to happen on a paid microstock site. There has to be a certain level of trust or you just can't do anything except use photos you've taken yourself. I'd look at https://pixabay.com/

  12. Photographers own the copyright to their work. Or, I would guess, if they work for e.g. a newspaper or magazine, then the copyright may be owned by the publication. Copyright expires after something like 70 years.
  13. There are several options and different people will recommend different ones. My own favourite is https://generatepress.com/
  14. Someone shared this on Facebook recently, and I thought it might be helpful to mention it here: https://www.w3.org/WAI/tutorials/images/decision-tree/
