It's 2:43AM already and i'm still working on the new version of that richardbase.com website. I have done 90% of the template last friday and i was able to chop things, add tables and rollover images already tonight (post.replace['tonight', 'morning']). I'll be using iFrame this time to minimize an extensive vertical scrolling for the main section. It has been months since i have last touched Dreamweaver, PaintShop Pro and Adobe Photoshop... so i'm having quite a hard time familiarizing things once again. I can't even find the SNAP TO GRID item earlier.

I tend to give importance to the details when i'm working on GFX-related matters. I would even scrap a two hour work and start from scratch if i'm not satisfied with it. I've done that earlier this evening when i am faced with the dilemma of optimizing the image size using JPEGs compressed by 15 or 30 percent over a GIF format which reduces the overall quality of the image.

I end up using a rollover image with both a not-so-compressed JPEG as the main image and a GIF file for the 'roller'. I don't want to sacrifice quality this time... and since i'm using an iFrame, the loading of most images will only occur once. All other loading of files and images will be inside that iFrame which is not that 'heavy'.

Once the main portfolio site is done... expect the foxpro.catalyst website to emulate that interface too. Hmm... do you really think this site will hold this text only type of look that long?
