  1. Hi Andrea

    I like your design very much !

    I'm scratching my head a little also about that little gap, but it still looks good that way to me.

    I do have one concern the code at the bottom of your html linking to the style sheets should be in the <head>.

    Also I like your current profile photo much better that the lastcool.gif






  2. I must say I am very impressed .

    Been playing around with some of the layouts very straight forward .

    Ill bet Stefan has a video on this.

    Has anyone else gave it a shot yet?

  3. Yes the code for the flash should work the way i wrote it for ya I didn't have the flash file to test.

    I no longer use flash but it worked for me in the past.

    As Andrea said you have a lot of issues to address, in my opinion you should review them and take one thing at a time.

    Time constraints prevent me from helping as much as i would like.


    p.s.I prefer j query over flash for your purpose .

  4. The reason the document could not be validated is because it contains a (byte order mark).-not visible.

    which can be removed using (programmers notepad)

    I did this for you and uploaded it to my server.

    here is the w3c validation page.




    Here is the code on my server, you can start over with this code at least you can validate and fix problems.



    Also this is how to write your flash code so it validates.



    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash"


    width="921" height="200">

    <param name="movie" value="banner.swf" />

    <param name="quality" value="high"/>


  5. Hi Constantine

    A good understanding of html and css is all you need for your purpose .

    But I have to say myself and others who build and give away html-css templates

    do so so you can do exactly what you wish to do, get a website up and running.

    It can be this easy:

    Find a template you really like change out the images insert your text and links.

    With a good understanding of html and css this is a very painless task.

  6. Is it possible to do with out cutting off the image?


    I think what you want to do is skew the images:

    How you skew your image to make it appear foreshortened depends on your program.

    If you're using Inkscape, click the "Object" menu's "Transform" command, then click the "Skew" tab. Type in numbers roughly between 5 and 15 for the "Vertical" and "Horizontal" text boxes to specify the skew angle, then click "Apply." The image you loaded will display the skewed effect.

    If you're using GIMP, click the tool palette icon shaped like a trapezoid to run the "Shear" tool, then drag on the image to skew it.

    For Photoshop, click the "Edit" menu's "Free transform" command, then right click your image. Click the "Skew" or "Perspective" commands, then drag the handles on the bounding box surrounding the image to preform

    the skew.

    For paint.net, select zoom and rotate in the layers drop down menu.

    I quickly did this one in paint.net


  7. I greatly exaggerated the amount that needs to be cropped a little goes a long way, and sometimes you have to prepare the image to accommodate the cropped area.using this method. And i do understand your concerns as per your example which contains text and columns and at the present time i do not have an answer.But I will look into it.Maybe one of the photoshop gurus around here could be more help.

  8. I want to create this kind of effect with some sites. I can't figure out how to do it and I can't seem to find anything on it. Maybe I am just looking for the wrong thing. This is the effect I am wishing to achieve and maybe you can help me figure out how to achieve it.





    I do not own photoshop but i have done this before using paint.net a free software.

    the method in doing this is probably the same or at lest give you some inspiration on doing it in photoshop.


    In a nutshell you gather your images and make them the same size.

    Then the images are cropped in this fashion,making the top and bottom portions transparent.



    Then open a new canvas much larger than the images and open each image in a separate layer and position them as you like.




    Hope this helps.
