Finally!!!! [May. 8th, 2003|05:09 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I've updated my website - http://www.strangeling.com

I added 22 new prints and generally spruced the whole site up a little =)

Now I'm going to eat a little food! Tonight I will get some painting in =) My USB cable didn't come in the mail yet, so I can't yet position my webcam to show my canvas =( Hopefully tomorrow!

Thanks so much!!!

I use Homestead (http://www.homestead.com )for my web hosting, and they have a nifty drag&drop "what you see is what you get" software program to create sites using templates or from scratch. I write a lot of the html myself in Window's little notepad, hehe. To make the pics pop up fast, I save them at the lowest compression I can in photoshop (usually a "7" on their 1-12 scale) at a low resolution and I am always sure to indicate the size and position coordinates in the html. I think the web software actually will do that automatically, but I get stuck in my ways and I kinda like writing code =)

Saving the pics at a low res/quality also helps deter image thieves online - if anybody tried to print them out for reprints or merchandise or whatever it would look pretty crappy, hehe.

Random thought. Probably dumb suggestion and it is only a suggestion. It is wedding season in a way maybe something people could give as a wedding gift. I don't know what exactly. Or a three set type deal or series.I know it's dumb, but I guess I'll send this anyway.

I've been thinking about offering some of them together - like the Poison Fairies or the Alice paintings as a set!

I might wait until Matt gets a frame shop together first, that way I could have a nice "finished product" with matting and everything that would make for nice gift sets. After we get a house Matt (who used to run a frame shop) is going to set up a room for matting and framing my work - I think that will be really cool!
