Short Flash Intro: Intro we did for Wefing's when they had first moved from the historic old location to the brand new spot in Eastpoint. The intro used to run and then automatically open the front page of the Wefing's site but now will return you here after it runs.
Links list: This page is one on the grouperboat.com site which presents the user with links to places of interest to the site visitor. (in this case weather sites related to the fishing industry).
Video: Everybody loves video. It will add punch to a website and hold your viewers interest for longer periods of time than plain text will. We can add streaming video within a page or design and implement a video viewer that will blend in with the color scheme and theme of the rest of your website or we can build flash elements from scratch and embed streaming video inside the flash elements.
Various slideshows: If you want to add some less bandwidth intensive graphic interest to your site there is nothing better than a slideshow. It loads fairly quickly and gives the user some control over how quickly or slowly he moves through it. Each image can have descriptions that can contain hyperlinks to either places in the pictures or larger versions of the pictures themselves.
Flickr Slideshow: Not really a slideshow we created, more of a demo of some of our photography along with an example of how you can use features from other sites to enhance your own.
High Dynamic Range Images Originally developed in the 1930's by Charles Wyckoff whose High Dynamic Range Images of nuclear explosions appeared on the cover of Life magazine in the mid 1940's, HDRI was introduced to the computer graphics community in 1997 by Paul Debevec. The popular method used now produces a high dynamic range image from a set of photographs taken with a range of exposures. The result is an image with a greater dynamic range of luminances between light and dark areas of a scene than normal digital images. We have been working with this technique and feel the images it produces can add a huge amount of visual interest to a website.
360 Degree Panorama: If you want to add more graphic interest to your site, a panoramic viewer can be very nice. Many that we see are visible only in a small window with cluttered advertising around the viewer. We can make one fit into your web page cleanly and size it as large, or as small, as you want. The one here was made from shots taken at the end of the Estuary Nature Walk on a foggy morning in November.
Semi-transparent text background sliding over a fixed background image, done with css using a semi-transparent gif for the background to make sure it works in all browsers. As the viewer resizes the browser window the text portion moves around the Gulf and if the browser window is shorter than the text box, when the text is scrolled it moves up and down over the fixed background chart. This page also has tabbed navigation elements done entirely with css.
Simple Manual Slide Show with thumbnails This page shows another way of displaying a large number of images on your page without having the visitor have to load a page full of huge images right off the bat. The thumbnails should load quickly, even on a slow connection, and the layout gives good visual impact. The images are displayed against a black background to make the colors "pop out" at the viewer more effectively.
Flash Based Gallery Another gallery of an artist's work, this one is Flash based using a program appropriately called "simple viewer". The gallery is clean, transitions are smooth and the overall effect is very nice.
Another Flash Based Gallery made using a different program. This one has automatic (slide show) transitions, optional music that the viewer can turn on from the first frame, and very intuitive ways to navigate around if the viewer doesn't just want to sit back and watch the slideshow.
Some Free Wallpapers. I take a lot of shots with a digital camera, looking for backgrounds and details I can use in my design work. These are just a few that I've sized to make good wallpaper for monitor backgrounds. Feel free to download, manipulate, edit or use any of them in any non-commercial manner you want. Enjoy.
