Okay, Another DRM added to the website that can easily be bypassed (as in, hello disable right click). What a way to insult users, treating them as potential thief. Why, just read this: https://www.dr-lex.be/info-stuff/top13not2do2014.html#rightclick. I understand unauthorize uses hurt your business, but don't do what planetware did on their content pages. At least the watermarks on the content are better than hackershomepage, because that site is WAY worse all the way.
Okay, now onto the quality:
-Webpage looks bland. White and grey everywhere with only a few paragraphs of text colored. The caption "Funny Cartoons your readers will love" could be improved font/logo. Wow, nice intro.
-Home page doesn't look welcoming compared to websites you see everyday.
-The copyright notice would be better suited to be placed at the footer of the site, not only in the home page. arstechnica.com did it right.
-There is no FAQ about buying and other stuff, you have to email firstname.lastname@example.org instead. Why this is a problem? Its because people often ignore email addresses, or it gets very busy and can take a long time before the user responds. It's common that messaging to others and they don't respond back, in general.
-There's no search bar to find the name you're looking for.
-Left menu is unnecessarily BLOATED, there are no buttons or other interactions outside that (besides hyperlinks), some of them are meant to be at the home page on the main body:
--Similar items that could've use submenu or merged together to ease users navigating the site.
--Pages with similar titles are split, making users easily get lost. For example: "business-cartoons" and "business-cartoons 2" are in different pages.
--Items aren't alphabetized. If you're updating the site, I recommend putting similar things together, then sort them so you don't have to painstakingly handle large amounts of items .
--There is a huge amout of text under that menu, it includes about the pricing, the author's story (seriously? Put that in a different page titled "my story"), "how to make your presentation memorable", misleading note saying "Cartoons are available for use in electronic, print media or merchandise." (even though there's DRM on the site) and... ...oh my gosh, if you visit most of the content pages that has images, there are hundreds of tags fill up the remaining portion of the menu bar. Just look at it. Would be better as having it on the main body of the page with show/hide tags button.
--The advertising is too distracting, with colored and inconsistent fonts. Thankfully there are no 3rd party ads on it that could potentially brings pop ups, and other inconviences.
Have this author ever visited a professional website? There is a phrase called "Less is more", which this author probably haven't herd of.
All in all, the website is difficult to even use because of the design, have the author even tested and have somebody check the site to see if it looks right?
Tip for consumers: There are better stock image websites out there that do a similar thing with better interfaces, better help, and easy to navigate, and not using DRM.
