I love the design of this site the photo imagery is very appealing and fits with the tone of the site as a whole. The animation effects make the site sections jump out and give the whole page a unity. I love the background images on this site. they are lush and relaxing.
This year, I got to look at the latest version of Dreamweaver in April. While I couldn’t announce it until April 23rd (and I’ll have even more to talk about after my intensive session with Adobe in early may!), I was playing with it for a large part of the month. Fun! I also played a bit with some CSS3 tutorials and a couple of editors.
In my part of the world (near Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.), spring is just starting to get underway, and it can be hard for me to stay focused on indoor work when it’s so nice outdoors! I love listening to the birds chirping outside my window and the smell of the grass and the bright sunshine. I hope that your April was wonderful, and that you’re looking forward to the changes of the seasons, whether it’s Spring or Autumn where you are.
Here are some of the more popular articles from April:
CSS3 has a lot of new background image properties, and two that are somewhat confusing are background-origin and background-clip. These two properties give you more control over your background images. And this article will explain how they work and what the values mean.
With CSS3 it is now possible to add as many background images layered on top of one another as you need to make the design you want. Previously, in order to layer images you had to either do it in an image editor like Photoshop or put one image in the background and place your layered image right in the HTML with an IMG element.
One of the best things about this CSS3 feature is that it has great support among all modern browsers, with only IE8 (and lower) as the holdout. and because of how you do it, even IE8 will display an image, it just won’t display all of them. Learn how to add multiple layered images to your backgrounds with CSS3.
