  1. As the lead developer for FineArtStudioOnline I would like to let you know that we have added a "return to portfolio" link that addresses your concern on our newer templates (as well as a ton of other new features.) We will be releasing those new templates (and features) to our users over the next few months and hope to migrate everyone by the end of the year.

    If you would like, contact me by replying to me directly from the information with this comment, and I will invite you review the new template and make further usability suggestions that we can implement as we roll out these improvements.

  2. As the FineArtStudioOnlin template seems to be the single most-used web design for the artists featured to date, I am very happy that the design continues to be improved and updated. I am sure that users (who are after all rtists and not web specialists) and user will benefit from the updates.
