I just made a new lay-out for my photoblog, and in the process I also made a custom front page. I think some of you might like the idea.

The first 'block' is a thumbnail of the latest image with a brief description.
The second features the latest picture (or maybe in the future a random picture, haven't decided yet) posted in a category that I use to showcase the best images. This ensures that there is always a good picture on the front page, even if, for some reason I might decide to post a weaker one.
The third shows six older thumbnails with brief descriptions.
An additional advantage may be that people who don't have any idea what a photoblog is (sounds hard to believe, but they exist
) get some clues.
P.S. I'm not sure how the whole thing looks in IE; I haven't been anywhere near a windows computer for quite some time, but eventually I will fix problems, if there are any.
