Photo Geekery
  • The website redesign is almost complete. www.disturbing.org.uk now has most of a new look, and much smaller "highlight" pages and archives - rather than hundreds of images all fighting for your attention. There's still some work, but comments appreciated on how well it does or doesn't work.

  • I've created an RSS feed from my flickr account which will be pulling highlights from my archives - simonflickr.

  • For a while now I've been running a photo-LJ repeating key parts of this journal, and a bit more - see disturbingorguk.

  • The friends list for this journal is mainly other LJ photo communities and such like. Much of it is not work safe (one of the reasons I keep it separate) - one or two of you might want to bookmark it at http://www.livejournal.com/users/disturbingorguk/friends/.

  • Finally, todays other RSS feed discovery was BetterPhoto.com's daily feed from their photography instructors - see bpinstructors - daily thoughts/opinions on photography.
There - don't say I don't do anything for you ;-)

www.disturbing.org.uk looking good although i do have 1 comment. what were your thoughts on people with 800x600 screens? i know some sites choose just to go with 1024x768 and ignore lower-res people. the site doesn't look like it likes 800x600 so i was just wondering what you decided on that...

Thanks - I know the design is a bit simplistic, but I'd never claim to be a web designer. Or a code-monkey. Or ...

I baselined at 1024x768 in the end. The front page works at 800x600, but the other pages need scrolling, and work to varying degrees. It's a bit like browser compatibility - you have to draw a line somewhere.

I might put in some code to catch the browser window size and see what people are coming in at. If there are lots at 800x600 then I'll write a style sheet for them especially.

Hmm - I'll check. Thanks for the heads up. I actually mean to go through and recreate all those "portfolio page" images at a higher quality/the correct size anyway, rather than at the moment where they are being resized in the web browser.
