Imagine a world…
Imagine a world where everything you need to know about a stamp release and accompanying cachet could be gleaned from a single source.
Tactical Design Cachets will be that source.
Research at the University of Michigan has found that the texture of a surface can effect how it renders color.
Since my site is primarily a stamp collecting forum towards stamps and space nerdiness. Thus, the accounts I’m following right now are:
I’m starting off with an amusing anecdote all about how I can build anything using corrugated cardboard and a hot glue gun.
I haven’t yet had the opportunity to scan all the images I’ll be using for my site, so I uploaded one set of cachet images and a few trial sets of travel images. I posted most of the information last week, but only posted it on my account and not on the class account.
Something I discovered while uploading images to Flikr, if you have already included any metadata tags to the images (in my case I tagged the Shuttle Cachets using Adobe Bridge) that data shows up in the tags field in Flikr, in the lower right section of the window. This will save me a lot of time and reduce the potential to tag one image differently in the two separate locations.
As will all new endeavors, I find myself spending hours reading reviews and researching pricing. This assignment is no different. I’ve just finished my research on hosting and domain registry services.
I’m searching specifically for a one-stop shop where I can register the domain and set up a hosted site. Here are the top four based on price and customer reviews:
Of the hundreds of different themes available for a WordPress site, I prefer a responsive design as the overall type, with a layout that functions with image-heavy content. I want to keep the overall look fairly simple and to facilitate viewing on mobile devices without content extending outside the view frame.
I intend to keep the layout at one or two columns since three would start to look too cluttered based on the type of content I’ll be posting.
The images are going to be primarily white backgrounds with small images to one side, meaning a dark background will give the viewer a better feel for the overall layout of the cachet if the white of the image doesn’t fade into a white background on the site.
The three favorites so far are:
Let’s say there’s a font you absolutely must have on your site or blog. Let’s also say you don’t want to build a fleet of JPG images containing headings or buttons using that font. Then you need a font kit.
A font kit is basically a list with a command that allows a visitor’s browser to read the font data from the server instead of forcing the visitor to load the fonts you want them to see.
