Photoshop Evening

Wednesday, August 18th, 2004

Much of the evening was spent trying to get the full resolution image to print on our Deskjet through the Airport Express. Turns out, the Airport Express seems to prevent full images from printing. (Color excel spreadsheets print just fine.) I’d hoped that the Airport Express, by providing an IP address for the deskjet and the air-whatever access to the speakers would end the stretching of USB cables across the room to our different machines (except for the scanner).

But no.

The image is for a card for a colleague.

HTML & CSS links

Sunday, August 15th, 2004

It’s been a very long time since i played with HTML. October of 2003 i really dug in to CSS for a day in order to make some HTML reports for work. And that’s been it.

So, i’m collecting links as i try to make a CDR wedding photo album for L & T.

Font sampler: http://www.codestyle.org/css/font-family/index.shtml — what’s common on Windows, Mac, and Unix platforms. Includes samples. Since i migrated Windows fonts to my Mac, i’m well supported.

Windows fonts: http://www.kayskreations.net/fonts/fonttb.html & http://www.pleasantscounty.net/misc/fonts.html

Free fonts: http://www.abstractfonts.com/fonts/ (Would you ask someone to install a font from a CDR?)

CSS: http://www.htmlhelp.com/reference/css/ — basic reference

CSS: http://www.csszengarden.com/ … http://www.csszengarden.com/?cssfile=/001/001.css&page=1 — inspiration

CSS: http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Guide/Style.html — link colors. Note that if one leaves the class statements w/o assigning them to the a element, one can create really annoying flashing text.

CSS: http://css.nu/articles/layer-examples.html — box layout

Style switcher: http://www.alistapart.com/articles/alternate/ — VERY COOL

Colors: http://www.visibone.com/colorlab/big.html — you can pick a palette and see how text in the olor colors appears on each swatch.

Wedding & Nature Photos

Friday, August 6th, 2004

In the past few weeks, i’ve mainly been using our digital camera. I regret that i did not pack the camera accesibly on our flight east, because the views from the plane around Houston at sunset were magnificent. (I would have likely taken some of those blue-cast photos of Lake Powell, too.)

Once we were in North Carolina, i was almost obsessive. I took almost two hundred photos of the preparations for Laura & Todd’s wedding. Thirty document Mom’s work on their wedding cake. In the math of photography, quantity eventually begets quality, and there are some well done photos. The album retains many photos of less than ideal quality, though, for their documentary value.

I also shot a round of photos when i walked home, my first day back to work. The fennel, cat tails, and thistles were lovely; the snowy egret was not cooperative. I restrained myself from picking a bouquet for my dining room and made up for it with photos.

200 Jam Weekend

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2004

A mysterious envelope was in my mailbox when i returned home from an 11 day trip: two ATC jam cards from Tracy & Geri. I’m not sure how or why i was added to the jam list. I’m not sure to whom i should send the cards next.

At least it was the correct address.
