As its title suggests, this post is an update about the blog. All the pictures that Kyle and I took yesterday are on the memory card that Kyle took to Orange County and I have been unable to reach him all day. This means that I have no new images or anything to feature on this post.
However, I have spent a little time working on the blog. After a few minutes of digging, I found the portion of the CSS code for the blog’s theme that deals with the header image, and after a few more minutes of experimentation, I figured out how to change the image. I took one of my old light paintings and quickly turned it into a new header image. This image will only be temporary: we will create something cool to replace it sometime soon. I also changed the font of the “CRDESIGNLAB” title. By the way, by changing the CSS, you can change anything, from the fonts, to the backgrounds, to the layout of the blog and the posts. Everything.
I downloaded the SnapzProX trial on my MacBook Pro and experimented with the software. I plan to start filling the “This is How We Do It” page with tutorials similar to those that Mr. Skocko makes. I even looked on the FAQ page on the Mac Lab Blog to find the exact settings that Mr. Skocko uses. As soon as I recover from the cold that is currently plaguing me, I will start making these tutorials, starting with how to change the theme header image and then light painting basics. Normally, it would cost $70 to upgrade WordPress to support video, but by placing the movies in the Dropbox » Public folder and then copying the public link (tutorial coming soon too), I will bypass this cost.
I also uploaded CRDESIGNLAB’s first piece of 3D art, my first animated logo. I built it a long time ago, before winter break, but just hadn’t gotten around to uploading it yet. Hopefully even the 3D galleries will fill up soon.
Today, the blog got its 250th comment, which I think it amazing, given that CRDESIGNLAB has existed for less than a month. I would like to extend a great thanks to all of you that have been following and commenting on my work and that of CRDESIGNLAB. As I said in a previous post, it is a great feeling to know that you are appreciated and an inspiration to others.
Well, that’s all for now. Please come back soon!
