logg 6/5-14 felix mob

Today I finished up my paralax, made some stuff in photoshop, and published some stuff on my blog

Final Time & Context

OUR FINAL IS ON TUESDAY, May 13, from 9am-11am.

At the final, you will be expected to:

1. Show your finalized website, and it should be LIVE! DO IT LIVE!

2. Show us the most useful or interesting bit of "problem solving" you did in creating your website. For example, did you figure out how to integrate a Facebook feed with a Wix site? Or did you figure out how to integrate a shopping cart with a wordpress template?

This doesn't have to be a full-on tutorial ,but walk us through the basic steps of your problem solving solution.

3. Have you parallax files on a flash drive, and be ready to show off your parallax.

Today I created and uploaded a flash movie to the blog, a add for my blog basically

For today

Hi everyone – I'm going to be about an hour late this morning – have to take my kid to a doctor check-up appointment, because my wife came down with the stomach flu and can't take her as planned. My apologies.

Before I arrive, if you could export your flash banners as both a swf file and as an animated gif, I'd like to take a look at those as soon as I get in. If anyone has a flash drive that everyone can put the exported files on, that would be ideal, so I don't have to spend time collecting the files when I get there.

Also, before I get there, take a look at the three parallax examples in the below class blog post. There are three examples - one that moves vertically, one that moves horizontally, and one that sort ofopens the images like curtains (not exactly parallax, but cool nonetheless). Each example has a demo and downloadable files.

Please pick the demo that looks the most interesting to you, in terms of the page functionality, and start to develop graphics you'd like to deploy for your own parallax page. In other words, I want you to take one of the formats (vetical, horizontal, or "curtains"), and figure out a cool design for a page that would work for that format, using your own ideas and graphics - basically customizing the effect with your visuals. This could be something related to your website, or it could be something totally new. I can help you with sizing, and so on, when you get back - but start to assemble your images. You will eventually have to save them as PNGs with transparency, so that the images "behind" the front images can be seen.

Parallax References

Here are three, with different effects, and downloadable source files:

Eric Unterberger 4/17/2014


I worked with different formatting options in order to add an online calendar to my website.
Unfortunately google calendars won't work through Weebly, so I needed to use outside sourcing and integrate a calendar that wont work through LDGS's primary email address.

Still waiting for official product photos for LDGS website.

Eric's Log

Week 1:

·        Edited and added content to events page
      Incorporated Events Schedule into the website using a word document allowing consistent updates of the fairs and festivals lemon drop gift shop will be attending.
      Continued to work on home page banner using the editing tools Weebly provides
             Sorted through and deleted all saved photos that will lead to copyright if uploaded to the Weebly website
      On the Store page I incorporated six subpages for dresses, jewelry, scarfs, skirts, purses, and hats. Instead of having every product on one page, this will help the buyer sort through and find exactly what they need.  
            Before next class… get better product photos to upload to the Weebly website. Photos should look professional with a white backdrop.
      Week 2:
n    Added products to Store Page.
      Continued to edit homepage, while adding facebook, instagram, and twitter links.
      Researched how to add instagram updates to the home page.
      Linked the contact page to the special order paragraph on dresses page 


What Keifer Bly Accomplished Today

Today, after some exploring, I managed to figure out how to add a new page to my website. Using this, I was able to add a contact page with all of the ways that anybody who has any questions could possibly contact me.

I also worked on finding a way to change the background image of my website's templates. While unsuccesful, I did find out how to upload images to my website in general.

what Sean accomplished today

I added a revised version of my artist statement in the about section of my website. I also figured out how to add my own header. I did this by doing a lot of clicking around. I also deleted the stock photos that i had added to take the place of my actual photos.  The next step is taking pictures of all my work. I figured out that i need to borrow the cube from Rick and a nice camera from someone, possibly eric

Claire Bagg -- Day to Day Work Schedule

April 3, 2014:
         Worked on artists "About Me" page.
                     -I read different artists statements from other photographers/friends such as Annie
                      Leibovitz, Benjo Aras, Russell James, Maggie Taylor & Steve McCurry.
                                -Most other statements or bios I read talk about their life work and what they
                                 have achieved throughout their career. Since I am just beginning in photography
                                 I decided to keep my bio or "about me" page simple and short.

          Added to my blog.
                     - Updated information on my Artist Statement continuation.
                     - Added a blog about the upcoming "fairy tale takeover" coming in theaters
                       through the next two years. Which I am SO excited about!

What to work on....Claire Bagg

Chosen website site: Weebly

            Text change to be added/made:
                           - Work on about page; what to talk about, how to describe self and work ect.
                                      - Add additional contact information into "About" page to make it more
                                        easily seen and accessible.

            Changes to be made:
                           - Remove button "next album" comes off a bit confusing; directs you to the next
                             album before getting a chance to view the album below.
                           - Keep black/grey box with album description but remove image behind; image
                             seems too obscure (on both "Fine Arts" & "Portraits").
                           - Show top few images to grab viewers attention, rather than having to make them
                             scroll all the way to the bottom (in both "Fine Arts" & "Portraits").
                           - Fix "Portrait" description sentence; spelling, words, explanation ect.
                           - For "Portraits" section choose maybe 5-7 images like in Fine Arts; try not to cluster
                             page with too many images, can be a bit overwhelming.

Check working progress:

          Squaring away the about page.

          Adding to the blog.
          Creating an art focused Instagram.
          Work on increasing activity through blog, site, Instagram ect.

Sean Leahy

I am going to be working with wix. I need to work on perfecting my header and possibly working on making my name appear better. I will make sure all the fonts mach up. I may need to revise my artist statement. The biggest task i will have is re-shooting photos of my works. I will use the cube and lighting to shoot much more professional photos. After that i will continue to add new works to my site as they are created. I will also include works in progress and possible ideas and inspiration.

Allison McCulloch Wordpress

I have decided to go with the Wordpress site to further develop my blog. In the next few classes I would like to hone in on the design elements of my site. I need to create a custom header that represents my personality and the overall feeling of the blog. I would like to change my background from a color to an image that will coordinate with the design elements I already have. I might try and add a few more widgets like a music player and my instagram.

            Once I have the design worked out, my next goal is to continue to post interesting content on my blog. I think a good goal would be two to three times a week. In order to do this I really need to brainstorm content for posts. I also need to take more pictures of my adventures and daily happenings. Because I made this blog to organize everything I find cool into one place… I need to keep finding cool things to write about!

            Another goal I have is to explore into other blogs I like either for their content or their design and try to take from that. When I post content I need to link it to my facebook to promote people to read it and follow. What is a blog if you have no one reading it? That will take some confidence in my writing as well but I think if I can come up with good content, people will read it.

Week 1:
Design Elements, header, background color, adding widgets, creating nav bar with separate blog feeds, finishing about me

Week 2&3:
Adding Content.. 1 per class (more photos, videos, etc)

Week 4:
Cross posting to facebook, instagram, etc.

The CSS Box Model:


The position declaration:


Positioning elements with CSS:


CSS Positioning Tutorial below. Note -- there are a couple glitches in the directions. Step 11 should say "{h3}Sidebar" instead of "{h2}Sidebar." Step 17 is completely erroneous, and will result in a file where the bottom of the content in the sidebar will push down all the content in the "Maincontent" div from the second header. Instead of following the directions on the pdf, do the following:

For the CSS rules for the "maincontent" div, add a "float left" property. In order for the text in the "maincontent" div to have some space between it and the sides of the div, add 20 pixels of padding to the left and right margins. Add 5 pixels of padding to the left and right margins of the "sidebar" div as well. Finally, add the "clearfloat" class to a "br" tag just before the footer, following the directions at the bottom of page 14.


The start.html file to begin the tutorial:


Follow this tutorial to page 17 only – disregard the last three pages.

References for Today's Class: 2/11

Today, in class, I'd like you to choose an html template from Dreamweaver (one of the two-column options with a header and footer), and re-style several elements. Don't just change the elements in a random manner – try to make all your styling cohere into an attractive design. There are at least six elements I want you to alter:

1. Insert new text, instead of the Dreamweaver "dummy" text. You can use Lorem Ipsum text.
2. Style the text differently.
3. Change the margins and/or padding on some elements.
4. Insert a few links in the text, and change the styling of the links.
5. Insert at least two images, and "float" them relative to the text.
6. Change the background color of all the elements (header, footer, sidebar, content).

And here are some links to online color palette resources:
