I'm developing a website on which photos and videos will be shared. But I couldn't decide on the main menu name to use under which there will be two subcategories Photo Gallery and Videos. Which one do you think makes more sense to visitors: multimedia or media? Once they see it, they should immediately realize this menu is all about photos, videos and things related to graphics.

I'm afraid that naming questions are normally off topic. –  Matt Эллен Sep 4 '12 at 9:44

This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Use multimedia for the category and photos and videos for the subcategories. Media would refer to something else: newspapers, television, radio.
