New Look

Saturday, March 20th, 2010

My website just got a new look. I got bored with the old one, so I played a few hours with GIMP, and this is the result. It’s still simple like the previous one, and it’s probably pretty obvious that my design skills are rather limited, but I like it better, and I hope it won’t burn anyone’s eyes.

New Version of ImgZoom in Development

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

Last weekend I started working on the next version of imgZoom, the jQuery plugin that uses vector graphics to implement a smooth zoom effect on thumbnailed images. With the initial release (a couple months back), I boldly announced that I intend to one day turn it into a decent substitution for Lightbox, and I think I’m actually getting closer to that. The current version has the lightbox-esque features of displaying images in a window, and allowing to navigate between previous and next images.

I transformed one of my testing pages into a nicely-looking gallery, so if you want to take a look at the development version in action, be my guest. The gallery should work correctly in most browsers, only Internet Explorer might still have some issues — I’m working on that. As always, I’m open to feedback.
