Windows Photo Gallery for user testing?

Hello fellow IxDers,
I am getting ready for some user testing for a web site upgrade. I'm
working with a company who is mostly interested in feedback on the
taxonomy and general look and feel of each page of their web site. I
am using .jpgs for this test.

However, I prefer scenario based testing whenever possible to add a
dose of reality to how they see the page, ("See if you can find
information on plant nurseries in your area"). This test will likely
be a combination since you cannot actively "click through".

Do you recommend Expression Blend?


We're starting an implementation project for a Windows application
that we've already designed (form, content and behavior is done). The
design involves some eye-candy and transitions that would be trivial
to implement with WPF, but not so trivial with Windows Forms.

To help the coders concentrate on coding, were considering to re-draw
our Photoshop+OmniGraffle originals with the shining new MS Expression
Designer+Blend toolset, hoping that the output is directly useful WPF/
XAML/C# input for Visual Studio.

Use of "Your" or "My" in Personalized Web Application Design

Howdy ya'll,

So does anyone have strong feelings--or better yet, research--about
whether its better to use "Your" or "My" to describe personalized
stuff in web application design? I'm working with a client who has
made extensive use of "Your" and I have this gut sense that "My" would
be better... more personal, more of a dialog between company and user,
more common and familiar...

looking for research on using pictures of people or faces...pl help.


I'm looking for a research published on the web recently that says
using pictures of people or faces on website does not have an effect
on its users. Users find Websites having pictures to be no different
to websites without them.

Please help me find it. Just to further clarify this is not the
research done with eye tracking where they find the best way to use
pictures of people.

It would be of great value if you could also give your collective
experiences or links to supporting research on this.
