The big shot

richard Morris - Thursday, May 01, 2008
Did you notice the photo at the top of our home page?



It's a shot of Batemans Bay from the center of the iconic bay bridge.  Well actually that's not entirely true because it's actually 6 seperate photos that have been stitched together. 



You can tell that something unusual is happening because if you look closely you'll see bits of the bridge at both sides of the photo and no obvious fish-eye distortion so clearly some magic is involved.

All the magic stems from a free product from Microsoft called Windows Live Photo Gallery which you can download from here.

Basically all you have to do is to stand in one spot and using a digital camera take several shots and add them to Live Photo Gallery .  Then select all the photos in Live Photo Gallery and right click and chose the menu option Create panoramic photo.



The result will be one single wide image that is a little messy around the edges as the application has had to distort the image slightly in order to stitch everything together seamlessly. 


 
Simply use Photo-Gallery to crop away the messy stuff and anything that isn't usefull to your shot ... and voila a little bit of bay magic.

Simple layouts tend to be easier to navigate

A grid will help you to structure the layout of the different sections; it will guide you through the specific screen size requirements, and help you to create responsive templates, so you're consistent in terms of spacing as well as many other design issues.

A tote and hobo handbag are examples of classic everyday bag styles that you can take from day to evening.

When I'm asked to create a look and feel for a website layout, the first thing I do is to come up with a top-level framework that solves all the design problems. The framework is the UI that surrounds the content and helps the user perform actions and navigate through it. It includes the navigation and components like sidebars and bottom bars.
