Strata-Art 2008 Updates

Strata-Art just went through a bunch of content updates. Starting from the top, the main page that features 3 paintings was redone. All three spots were replaced with newer pieces. On the backend HTML, Kerwin took the previously cut-up image and made it one large one. The one large image loads a lot faster for 2 reasons: 1) the total file size is a little smaller; 2) loading one image of a certain file size is faster than loading several images equaling the same file size.

Updated oil and watercolor paintings were added throughout the galleries. The News and Exhibitions sections have also been refreshed.

Frommer's BOS & HFX

Two more slideshows went up today with photos of Boston & Halifax, the two stops from my Memorial Weekend cruise on Queen Mary 2. Since these were cruise port stops, they didn't cover much, but I made sure to take a few general pictures and was even able to cover a handful of POI's (points of interest).

I found that the plugin that's doing the automatic photo resizing isn't perfect. It's tends to make diagonal lines a bit jagged when it resizes down. Being a perfectionist with my work, I actually did my own resizing and sharpening of some of my photos and reuploaded them, overwriting the automated versions.
