Ad-Lib to Fade: Give More Freedom to Web Designers

When graphic designers or photographers create web backgrounds for sale to web designers, they often forget one fundamental problem of the internet – variable screen width. A website must look as good on a mobile phone as on a TV-size monitor, which often feels as like designing a pattern on chewing gum.The Cinderella of Design SolutionsWith such limited control over composition, one design solution stands out – the fade, or color gradient, if you wish.

Never give up chasing the light

1 year on DT- my story , never give up!

Like many togs here who may have alternative income means to support themselves i have been through the ups and downs of " am i wasting my time" scenarios.

I always liked the idea of filming scenes so i bought a canon entry level DSLR, ( though now im nikon).... continue reading

My story of bone marrow transplantation

Hello all! My name is Brian. I just wanted to let everyone know how they can save people's lives. About a year ago my health began to deteriorate, and by December I found out that I had a very rare bone marrow disorder called aplastic anemia. This is a disease where my immune system attacked my bone marrow and destroyed it leaving me with no way to make enough blood to sustain myself (blood consists of white blood cells for immunity, red blood cells to carry oxygen, and platelets to help clot). I... continue reading

Never give up!

On logging in today I was impressed to find that my latest sale was of this image.What made me impressed was that this is one of my most recently uploaded images, has only 32 views and sold for $4.32, and no that is not unusual, what is though, is that this image was initially refused due to lighting etc...I was surprised as I thought it was perfectly lit, and just thought oh well, they just did not like the image and despondently ignored to rectify the image. But for some... continue reading
