There are hundreds of web design galleries on the Web and each one claims to be unique.
We all know that CSS Galleries are great for improving your website’s traffic and page rank. Also, these sites are wonderful sources of inspiration. The only drawback is that it takes a lot of time to find regularly updated CSS Galleries that really work. Hope our post will make this task easier for you.

However, the main aim of this post is not to list all existing showcase sites but answer a simple question, “What background is the best for a CSS gallery?” We believe a good way to find the right answer is to compare the most popular backgrounds; black and white to be exact.

Please take a few minutes to see 6 CSS Galleries listed below. Three of them come with black backgrounds and three of them come with white backgrounds. After you see them all, leave a little comment what background works best.

If you are developing Flash web sites, then you’ll be happy to read this post. It’s all about a Flash CMS blog that writes about Flash Content Management Systems.

In case you don’t know a Flash CMS is a Flash Content Management System. It’s a powerful tool that allows you to easily create and update Flash sites. No special skills or tools are requited to work with the Flash CMS.

Most Flash designers would enjoy Flash CMSs but here comes a question, “How to find Flash Content Management Systems?” Instead of answering this question I suggest you to visit a new Flash CMS Blog. Not only it provides information on Flash Content Management Systems but also highlights their main features.

To be short the Flash CMS Blog is your way to Flash CMSs, Flash CMS tips and Flash CMS news.

In spite of the fact the blog is quite new; it’s extremely useful for Flash designers. Why? It’s because it’s the only blog that reviews all existing Flash CMSs.

Since Flash CMS Blog has been launched each web designer has a choice – either to search the web or to find all Flash CMSs in one place.

Last week we’ve reviewed Flash Templates that may be used for any purpose. Today we’ll focus on Flash Templates with huge illustrations. According to Smashing Magazine not only huge illustrations are often used in modern web design but have become one of the latest trends. Sometimes you see huge illustrations as backgrounds; sometimes you see them communicating the main message of the site whether it is a business or personal project.

Below you’ll find 10 Flash Templates. These Flash Templates definitely fall into the category of “check this out” so make sure you just do that!

If you have a closer look at any template you’ll easily notice that its homepage design is limited to a photo or an illustration. So here comes a question, Is one image enough to impress site visitors and make them enter the site or not? If you have an answer to this question, please comment this post with it.

If you need to have a Flash website built and you need it fast, then you should go for a Flash Website Template. For instance the one described below.

In brief,  Zeroix Premium Flash Template is now available at TemplateMonster.com. It’s a brand new Flash Template and it differs a lot from other Flash Templates.

Let’s take a closer look at Zeroix Premium Flash Template and learn why it is so special. In terms of animation it’s awesome. Every little detail is well thought out and so well designed. Also, this Flash Template is a great combination of custom 3D models, custom textures, sounds, etc.

It took a great amount of time and efforts to create Zeroix Premium Flash Template. In fact this template was built by TemplateMonster friends from Zeroix web design studio and not by TemplateMonster Team.
