  • I'd vote to do it just because I'd like the practice of designing to a brief, but no point if I was the only one doing it.

  • I'd get involved, not done any design for a while. We'd all get stomped by Tera but it'll be fun anyway. I doubt anybody will be able to invest too much time in it, but that isn't a big deal. Let it run for a while to appeal to more people.
  • I say the people who would like to join in get given a certain theme and from that theme they have to create something from scratch within a certain time frame (X amount of weeks). If people were willing enough to donate or maybe even someone could arrange a free web host for the winner and something for the runners up or something along the lines of that.

  • [QUOTE=fritzel;38030875]Can someone help me smoothing out the round edges in this gif ? Or guide me how to anti alias that without looking bad. [IMG]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8193/8085883488_916fb283b7_o.gif[/IMG] It looks bad on black background.[/QUOTE] Can I use it for a non commercial use? More specifically on the site you was helping me with? :) It's just gonna be used for a school presentation and only hosted on dropbox. And I can give you credits in the footer.

  • ^^Sure ! You can also get the gif foreground and png background from below given links for smooth edges workaround (use background-image and src to set background and foreground respectively): foreground gif: [url]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/131183/w8.gif[/url] background png: [url]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/131183/w8.png[/url]

Instead of having two images load.

That is for the weird domain[/QUOTE] Primary colors are never good, even worse when they are on a black background. I think you should consider picking a light grey background, and changing the font colors to dark grey. After that, you should choose another font. Preferable sans-serif I think (but that's personal choice). If you have trouble finding web compatible fonts, Google has an extensive range of them, with easy instructs on how to use them in your site. For styling, you should use CSS, which isn't at all hard to get into, so have a look at it. All in all, I think as a first(?) website, it isn't at all bad. I will post an image of what it would look like if you changed what I said, with detailed descriptions of what I changed in order to get that effect if you want. I went of the top a bit with picking loads of fonts, but it was to show that you don't need to limit yourself to one font per page. [thumb]http://puu.sh/1faVq[/thumb] I can PM you the code I used to get those effects, but if you don't want to, you might find some things worth searching up, like The Golden Ratio. In short, the golden ratio is a coefficient that many artists believe makes things more aesthetic.

  • In IE 9, the speed and look came. In IE 10, greater support for HTML 5 and CSS 3 comes. And I fully agree that IE 10 is back in the fight.

  • Avatar of jung3o
  • each browser has ups and downs. IE is getting better each update imo. Everyone uses IE in my school even though everyone knows there are chrome and firefox installed. No one cares which browser is better unless they're into webdev. or they just like chrome or firefox better because of their addons.
  • Avatar of douche beat
  • It was either IE9 or IE10 that brought a rewrite which made it am lot better than previous versions, its anything lower than 8 that you usually have to worry about
  • IE10 is the first version of IE that I can write absolutely anything for and it will render it perfectly without complaining. Its nice to see Microsoft has finally caught up.

  • I'v decided to try out PS 6 instead of Paint.NET which has been my companion for years. From now on, I'm going to use 4x the time I used in Paint.NET to create stuff, but hopefully I will get back to my previous effectiveness when I get used to the whole PS thing.
